    General help needed in my house in Baltimore - cleaning, de-cluttering, yard work and gardening, painting, small house repairs, and whatever else inspires us.

    I am seeking intelligent, self-motivated and enthusiastic helpers. Good interpersonal skills and independent problem-solving skills are essential. Candidates are expected to be honest and trustworthy, as well as reliable and disciplined. Cleanliness, in the assigned space, in shared spaces, and with personal appearance, are all required.

    Candidates who would not be a good fit are:
    - smokers, excessive alcohol consumption or stoners
    - slow, unmotivated
    - require complete and total direction on every task.
    - low hygiene
    - excessively demanding, entitled

  • Accommodation


    Baltimore is a really fun city with a ton of things to do, and is well located to visit DC or NYC by train/bus.

    Our house is in a quiet residential neighborhood in the City of Baltimore, near John Hopkins University Homewood campus, with good bus connections to all what the city has to offer. You will have a private room with a double bed which is comfortable in space and decoration, and share the rest of the house with the owner. The neighborhood is urban and diverse, within a mile of the main campus of Johns Hopkins University, Decent WIFI is at your disposal. Free parking. We have a YMCA sports center right near us, with a pool and other sports activities.

    What else ...

    Due to my schedule, I cannot promise to provide meals, except maybe some breakfast basics and occasional dinner together. Basic cooking supplies are available in the kitchen. 3-4 hours a day of help will be appreciated in return for accommodation. I do not own a car at the moment, so cannot pick you up or drive you please, unfortunately - I walk, use the bus or Uber. Happy to show you around the city as schedule allows. Maps and other materials are available for your orientation.
