  • Descripción


    We are a couple, Arja and Tommi, with four small dogs. We live in an apartment with a small garden. Our place is located about 5km away from the Oulu city centre. We would like to get some help with cleaning, cooking, gardening and with the dogs. We might also need some help at Arja's childhood home which is located in the neighbor town. This would be during the weekends but we can always agree about that together in advance. In the summer time we also spend some time in our summer house. It's located about 100km to the North from Oulu. There's always quite a bit to do too. In the summer and in the autumn there are more things to do in all of the places. We grow some vegetables and we also pick berries and mushrooms. There are also some small things to fix, such as the fence. In the winter time there are fewer things to do outside. Mostly shoveling the snow off from the driveway and from the pathways. We will also be doing all of those things, so you won't always need to work totally alone.

    We are very flexible with your working hours and the days when you need to be working. We we don't necessarily need you every day and some days might include only a walk with the dogs, some days a little more instead. We can always agree how many days a week and what times of the day you should stay at home and when you are free to travel or just have some free time at home. We hope you still tidy up your own mess even if you are having a free day. However, we are always willing to negotiate about everything. The important thing for us is that you also feel like home and you can have an enjoyable stay.
