Hi, I'm an active 60er, living on the belgium coast in beautiful De Haan.
I need some help in the garden and indoors for do-it-yourself jobs. I can't do it all, because of artrosis. Besides that, my partner Lydia needs some help in the house or driving to appointments.
We would like a Workawayer from at least 40 years old, capable to drive with automatic gear.
We have a large bedroom with wooden floor for hosts. The bathroom is opposite the bedroom.
We have a very gentle 11 year old indoor cat. Our doggy Tiki (nearly 15 years) passed away in August.
Help around the house
Help with Computers/ Internet
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I can teach Dutch and English; guiding the host in the area (cycling routes, interesting pittoresque places around), and of course explain a bit of Bruges (only 15km away)
Gardening includes mowing, clearing shrubs and weed. Indoors are some painting jobs, putting shelves, ...
It's a semi-detached house with a basement (3 rooms, incl. a bathroom), ground floor including hall, living and kitchen. On the first floor is the bathroom and bedroom for guests.
My partner is an excellent cook and like to prepare healthy food. Normally we will have breakfast around 9am, lunch around 1pm and dinner around 6 pm.
Spare time is no waste time: there are many attractions on the coast, and you're in the vicinity of Bruges and Ostend. Public transport is well organised. Cycling is ideal (flat space all around)
We like the quietness, walking and talking. TV is not the main focus.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
