  • Description


    We are a very busy couple and own a successful business in Boulder, Colorado.

    We are looking for someone to help us mainly with yard work and some other building projects or help us with some household chores (cleaning, preparing food, doing some projects with our 3 year old boy. We would welcome someone who has experience with wood and or landscaping and maintenance. We are looking for about 25 per week of help in exchange for food and accommodation.

    We love to meet people from other cultures as we have both traveled extensively and have friends all over the world.

    We have a beautiful modern house in in Lyons. We have a 1/3 of an acre which backs up to open space so we often see wild life such as a herd of deer, foxes or even a bear on our property. In spring there a lots of flowers.

    You will have your own private room. We are very much into health and make mostly organic meals. We can accommodate any dietary restrictions. Petra likes to cook, so you will be well taken care of.

    We are currently looking for a helper for a longer term stay for at least 2 months if it is a good fit. We are really looking for the right person who can help us. We always try to make sure our helper gets to do what they came to do in Colorado. So we try to make connections for them and help them any way we can. We will make sure that you will have a wonderful stay.

    We usually like to have a short face time with helpers before they come to make sure it would be a great fit for everyone. Once we agree, we really want the helper to commit to us as we are committing to them and not searching for a different situation. We have had a couple of helpers recently to change plans on us at last minute which we feel like it is not right. We have purchased special food for one helper and said other people no because we were led to believe they our helpers are coming. So if you are not sure of your plans or prefer another situation then please don't string us along. We will do the same.

    Please email us if you have any other questions.

    There is a bus stop a few minutes from our condo which takes you to downtown Boulder. You can do anything you like with your free time from hiking, working out, rock climbing, biking or just relaxing at the house. We like our house to be kept clean so we are looking for someone who cleans after themselves. We are pretty easy going and flexible and looking for the same.
