  • Description


    We are a family of 5 (plus a dog) living on the outskirts of Düsseldorf (S-Bahn a 1 minute walk).

    We have 3 children (9, 17 & 18) and are looking for support in the house with household chores, cooking, ironing, gardening, driving, helping to support the children with their homework and my business as I work from home.

    The accommodation offered would be very comfortable, a bedroom with a bathroom in the main house. We had a couple of students from all over the world to stay with us to learn German we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We are looking for someone with a sense of humour who is happy to muck in with an uncomplicated but energetic family. There is never a dull moment with us and we often have visitors.

    The location is well connected by train and you would be in the centre of Dusseldorf in 10 minutes. It is a beautiful area with plenty of activities on offer from tennis to horse-riding, golf, football and hockey. Swimming is close too, the setting is idyllic but with an excellent infrastructure.
