We are a 37-year couple living on a small island in the Finnish Archipelago. We have 2 dogs and 6 pet sheep and few chickens. We used to travel and live in different countries but now we have settled in Finland. The Finnish archipelago is a very special place to live in and we are happy to spend time sailing and being outdoors. The island were we live is located 45 minutes from Turku city.

We would like to share our life style and give visitors opportunity to enjoy the unique environment in the stunning archipelago. We are native Finnish and Dutch speakers. We are happy to introduce Finnish lifestyle and sauna culture to the visitors and make some typical Finnish dishes for dinner. Please note that we offer only one hot meal per working day. The rest of the meals visitors buy and cook themselves. If the weather is good we should go for a sail, kayak or supping in the area. We can teach visitors sailing or horse back riding.
Normally travelers pay for horse riding, sailing boat rental , SUP use etc. Now we would like to have some extra hands to help us and would like to exchange some tasks to the island experience. We will not ask the guest to clean a cottage because it's our income to pay the rent and running cost of this place. The help we ask the visitors to do is in our opinion fun outdoor tasks, that we are struggeling to have time to do ourselves. During the day you can both do the the tasks independently or together with one or both of us.
Now in corona time we do welcome volunteers as long as you are healthy! We are now searching for 1-2 people for coming 3 weeks (until mid June) that would fit to our group. This island has only 4 people living here and small group of volunteers , so it is a very good place for social distancing :) Of course you have to be in Finland already to be able to come here!
During the winter months there is 4 persons living on the island and we do not have customers. Winter time you can stay in the cottage during our stay. The cottage has got sauna and kitchen, and 2-3 bedrooms. In the summer time we might not have a cottage available. If you stay in our guest room in our house we will offer all the meals for the helpers.
We would like to have help with all kind of maintenance tasks, painting, cleaning, building sheep fences, oiling piers, cleaning beaches, gardening, cutting fire wood, sewing curtains, picking berries, fixing sailing boats or outboard engines and taking care of our pet horses, chickens and sheep :)
Visitors can stay in a cottage or guest room in our house, those who like a to be really close to the nature can sleep in a tent or 7m sailing boat :D
Unfortunately there is no public transportation to the ferry port during the summer. We can pick up the visitors from close by town Parainen. Ferry to the island runs several times a day and it´s free of charge.
