  • Descripción


    We are a family of 8. Me and my husband and 6 children aged 3-17. Unfortunately my husband got severe brain damage in a fall last year so he now lives at a spesial home where he receives the care he needs. We moved here from the Netherlands about 8 years ago and now live in a somewhat rural area about 10 km from the village center in beautiful Sunnmøre. Right in between sea/fjord and mountains so plenty of things to discover. I work at a primary school as a teachers assistant and all the kids are in school/kindergarten and have various activities during the week (training, gymnastics, hiphop/jazz, swimming, piano, choir to name some).
    We have a big family and can be pretty chaotic and loud at times so you have to be able to live with that 🙂. We are looking for someone that is used to that and is self-confident and social/outgoing. Ideally someone that enjoys to have a good chat as well as for example watching a movie together. Living with us means you become part of the family for the time you are here.
    No smoking household. We have a cat. We eat both fish and meat and besides trying to eat healthy in general, part of the family eats keto/lowcarb. I must admit though that with all that's going on here we don't always manage to find enough time for this so help in this department is well appreciated.
    Apart from that we are open and direct (maybe cause we are dutch and all), we like to talk and do that a lot 😉. Communication is very important and is being all different ages, you have to be able to communicate with both kids and adults. Being able to make a connection is key.

    With us you can get the best of two worlds/cultures. We are a (originally) Dutch family living in Norway. We can help you with the language. We like to go out and enjoy everything Norway has to offer as much as possible and we can share about all the things around here that can be done. During wintertime you can choose from different skicenters and we like to go ice-skating on the lakes. In the summer you can swim, hike or cycle to explore the beautiful nature surrounding us. In the village center you find different shops, gyms, a movie theatre, a library and more. We also have a local airport. The nearest city is Ålesund where you find a bigger airport with direct flights to different places in Europe (f.ex. Amsterdam). The city center is full of history and worth a visit and you will also find a saltwater aquarium here.

    There's lots of things to be done in and around the house that we need some help with. Primarily cooking, cleaning and helping out with the children. In case we have more then one workawayer staying, we also have a long list of things that need to be done in and around the house. Painting, fixing, gardening and so on.
    It is important for us that you have a driving license for two reasons. First, i need help driving the children to and from school and other activities. Second, we live a bit further away from everything so it's nicer for you to be able to get around.
    The kids would like to add a few 'requirements' as well 😉. These are no deal breakers but would be a plus.
    They would like you to be sporty so you can join them in the gym.
    Can you cook healthy meals as well as the occasional pancakes or pizza that would be great, especially if we are allowed to help every now and then.
    We watch every F1 race and we would be happy if you'd like to enjoy a race or two with us.
    It's appreciated if you are creative and like to do arts and crafts.
    You have to be funny and kind.
    It would be nice if you at least know who Naruto is.

  • Alojamiento


    We have a guestroom with double bed and bathroom on the ground floor and an extra smaller bedroom on the first floor of our spacious home. The house is located in a quiet area, the nearest neighbors live a few hundred meters away.
    We do have internet but it's not the best connection and with all our kids, I'm afraid there is not much bandwidth left 😂

    Algo más...

    We have a busstop at walking distance. We have an extra car that could be used sometimes. Besides that we have a family pass for our local gym which is available to use for someone staying here a bit longer.
