  • Description


    We are a happy family of four. I(Sultan,30) am an English teacher in a public school. My husband Aykut(32) is an electronics engineer. My daughter Zehra is four years old. My second daughter Zeynep is one year old.

    Aykut works from 8 a.m to 5 p.m at weekdays. I work half - day from 8 a.m to 12 p.m on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. Thursday is free. On Friday I work from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Zehra is attending a nursery half - day till noon. I drop off and pick up her every day. One of my neighbours is taking care of Zeynep at her home when we are at work.

    Our house is located in the middle of a forest in Tavşanlı,Kütahya. Kütahya is a lovely city near İstanbul, İzmir, Bursa,Eskişehir.

    We need a FEMALE or COUPLE to spend time with Zehra and Zeynep and light housework.

    From the minute you arrive you will be treated as one of the family and we will also look after you as such. We hope you look after our house as if ıt was yours and do the chores that you would do in any place like tidy the kitchen after the meals, put in and take off the things of the dish washer, keep your bedroom and toilet clean, ....).

    We love travelling a lot. When I was studying at university, I was an exchange student in Denmark. I travelled all over Europe. In 2012 I attended a program called SWY ( The Ship for World Youth) in Japan. I visited Japan, India, Singapur,Sri Lanka thanks to this program. My husband was also an exchange student in Poland. He has been in USA for three months for work and travel programme. After we got married, we visited some European countries together (Greece, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosna, Spain). We are a travelling, open-minded, easy-going, extroverted couple. We love chatting with travel-lovers.

    My husband and I like to spend time in the kitchen. He is really good at cooking. You will be lucky to taste Turkish cuisine. If you are vegan or vegeterian, you are welcome to cook for yourself.

    As we are a non-smoker and non-drinker family , we expect you not to smoke and drink at home.

    P.S. We only can host people with a valid health insurance.
    It would be good if you provide us a copy of your passport on arrival, or we can take one by ourself.

    We want to create a natural environment for the girls to learn a foreign language. Your native language can be English, Spanish, Arabic, French or other. You can speak with them in English and in your native language. You can teach them some games, songs. You can sometimes come to my school to help me with language practice with my students.

    I would be really happy when you try to keep the house clean and neat while we are at work. You can collect the toys, vacuum the floor, load and empty the dishwasher. You will be free and alone till noon. I need your help with the kids while we are at home.
