  • Description

    Description

    We are a Swedish-American family who enjoy opening our home to guests from around the world. We have two children, Liam, 9, and Talila, 11, two foster kids, 12 & 15, plus a dog and cat. We enjoy getting to know new people and we also enjoy opening guests' eyes to the beauty of rural Sweden.

    We need help with some painting jobs and building projects.

    We also looking for someone with gardening experience. We want to get some serious gardens going this spring: flowers, herbs, vegetables and berries.

    Help with household tasks: washing, cleaning, making vegan/vegetarian meals, going out with dog will also be apprecistrd. Being able to repair clothes is a merit

    We are into yoga, dance, meditation, singing, hikes and other nature experiences, massage, vegan/vegetarian cooking. Together with the kids we enjoy goofing around on the trampoline, movies, board games and card games. The kids are into Harry Potter, reading, Wii, ping-pong, arts and crafts, and having a jolly good time.

    We have a relaxed and natural atmosphere here at home filled with warmth and laughter and we are happy to share this with others. We mostly speak English.
    We live in a 25 year old eco-house in a small picturesque village on the countryside.

    How it works? We offer you a room in the cabin and provide food during your stay. You help 4 hours a day 5 days a week, excluding cooking and cleaning up after meals (which we all help out with).

    We are social and friendly, and we want you to enjoy your stay while contributing. We are happy to offer tips for outings or take you along with us when we go on outings and activities.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The nature here in Kloster is very picturesque. Ours is an open and relaxed family and, together with the peacefulness of the area, this can prove to be quite healing for mind and soul. We speak English at home mostly.
