  • Description


    Hi! John here! I’m an entrepreneur, a Harvard Business school grad, currently residing in Kuala Lumpur. I am involved in the startup scene here in KL.

    You will be staying with me & my wife. I love hosting and have MANY references so feel free to ask me for them. We live in an affluent area in Kuala Lumpur which is filled with food and convenient transportation, located in a serene peaceful hillside area.

    We have a dog, but he spends most of his time with my retired mother , My wife and I prefer to have female workawayers. We are NON SMOKERS, and don’t drink or do drugs, so I prefer the same as well. You are welcome to go out and drink of course.

    My expectations:
    -Minimum 6 weeks stay (8 weeks preferred)
    -VERY proficient in English
    -Up to 4 hours a day work, or accumulation of 20 hours/ week
    -Can financially support your own.

    What I need help with mostly:
    -occasionally taking care of my dog: Fender is a 5-year-old Staffordshire that needs lots of love, attention and cleaning. He’s the sweetest dog you’ll ever meet!
    -Mostly House work: home cleaning, tidy up, house sitting
    -Attend to the door (clients sometimes drop off/pick up stuff at my house)

    My contribution:
    -Stay in a private en suite room with private bathroom, air con, and high speed internet
    -You are welcome to use our shared living area, workspace, laundry and kitchen, provided you clean up after yourself.
    -I know all the best food spots in Kuala Lumpur and will be happy to take or recommend you to a lot of them!

    If you have any of the following skills, that would be a bonus!
    1. Knowledge on baby care ( we’re expecting in 6 month ! )

    Anymore question? Hit me up!

    I want to show you the upper-middle class KL lifestyle. KL is an awesome city with tons to offer in terms of culture, food, attractions (both in the city and surrounding areas), and great people.

We love going on food adventures, weekend trips, and sometimes just chilling at home watching movies :) who knows, you might find your second home here!
