  • 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 are looking for someone who can stay for around two months: November and December.We need mostly help with household jobs: cooking vegetarian/vegan food, cleaning, laundry, going out with the dog etc.
    Plus some painting jobs and smaller projects. Sewing skills are 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.

    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.
