    Description

    Corona update: Due to Corona we are looking for a person who is already in Finland or is willing to quaranteen safely before joining our family (we can possibly help with organizing that) and is hoping to stay with us for a longer period of time (weeks to months) in case you seem to fit in with us during the first week or two.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We are a widely traveled family of five (kids 6 and 8 yrs and a six months old baby) in the western part of Finland looking for extra help around the house. Come join us for a great stay enjoying the countryside and experience the Finnish culture!

    You are free to hang our with our animals (plus ride a 3 yr old quality eventing mare in case you are an experienced rider), drive a four wheeler around the small roads, sup-board or row a boat at our near by river side cottage (that can also be your home if you prefer simple and rustic life without running hot water and indoor toilet but a lot of peace and quiet), ski, ride a bike, hike or take part in the many art and culture activities that are going on in our town 7 kms away from our house (no public transport but we can give you a ride if needed). If you have specific skills or interests let us know and we can cook something up!

  • Help

    Help

    We have two horses, a few pet lambs, a few ducks and two happy dogs that all love the extra attention! We need some friendly soul to help with keeping the house and yard tidy, cook if you enjoy and help take care of the animals to some extent. Our garden also desperately needs some work done during summer.

    Cleaning up the place after kids and animals is the main thing we need help with. If you are good at amusing kids you get extra cheers! :)
