  • Description



    We are a big family but we have now only two kids at home , 17yo boy and small 5 yo always happy and smiling girl called Clara. My son Hiro is no bother for you, he is at school and spends most of his time on different activities like tennis. Someone who can play with him tennis , cycling would be a great help. Hiro would like to improve his spanish , he is a chatterbox too.
    Clara is very well mannered, polite child , very talkative and asking questions all the time. She loves drawing, reading books , dancing and learning languages already. She is at school from 9-2pm so you can go explore. Mum Beata runs cleaning company, dad very often abroad .Grown up kids ( students) coming during the weekends sometimes and they are very open minded for people from other countries .
    My 20 yo daughter Alice would love to learn italian during the weekend.
    Sorry, we are not vegetarians or vegans! We eat healthy food, mostly cooked from scratch . I love baking but no free time so if you play/teach Clara I can do more cooking/baking.

    Because of our daughter, we expect the house to be appropriately quiet in the evenings and surely at night but when my students are sometimes back home at the weekends, they enjoy to have family evening fun including our little one or you can go with them to the local pub or meet new friends. We are open to different arrangements. If you would like to visit us with your child please let me know.

  • Help


    I appreciate if you teach us your native language. I would also appreciate a bit of help in the housework, like light cleaning, ironing. We aren't a hostel so cleaning after all meals don't qualify as a work.
    You can choose to do any type of house help , or we can arrange individually.. I prefer early bird person as we wake up around 6.30-7 am.
    If you wish to you can help prepare or cook dinner yourself for the family.

    Additionally, we are especially looking for a Spanish or Italian ( native) speaker who can teach/speak with the family.
    Other languages also welcome;-)
    If you are a lady with a child that's not a problem for us as Clara will get a new friend but your child must be happy to play with her not forced and looking forward to seat in front of computer or mobile.

    In exchange we offer accommodation (own room with shared bathroom) with food , in a town near a beach , with a friendly,open family . In exchange we can also show you a bit around the area that we live in , and teach you English/ and help you improve your English.

    The babysitting help is flexible, the time will be arranged individually.
    Because of our daughter, we expect the house to be appropriately quiet in the evenings and surely at night.
    Your free time hours will depend on the babysitting times , which will also be arranged in person. You will however have the whole Sunday off.

    Anything else we can arrange in person or over email, depending on the situation.
    My friend have kids and sometimes she needs help, if you can cope with 2-4 kids together its the possibility to get extra work paid but its up to you!

    No smoking, drugs, alcohol or mobile addiction;-)

    Also some help welcome from person who knows some DIY like painting, decorating, gardening
    Any hidden/usufull skills please let me know.
    I am looking forward to hear from you .

    As such, Wifi access will be restricted particularly during work time hours, unless essential.

    I personally do not want a slave to the world of Google while playing / staying with my wee girl.
