    -due to covid we might not be able to host you. But applies are welcome-

    Hi, Im a mum with 2 kids (12,14) and a cat named Gizmo, awesome neighbours and my boyfriend living a block down the street.

    When staying with us, you'll blend in as a friend or familymember.
    If you like kids, a strange cat and helping us out? You are more than warmly welcomed. You’ll be Gizmo’s (the cat) servant during your stay.😂

    The project is most general maintanace like sanding, painting, woodworking and cleaning and vegan cooking.

    We live a 5 minutes walk from the forest, and the beautiful moor. You can walk and enjoy nature at its best.
    It is a 20 min. drive to the city of Eindhoven.

    Im working parttime at the Dutch railways, and always willing to help you with the best info about travelling trough the Netherlands. Im allso a self employed vegan chef, so I cook a lot. Most of the time i cook with an intercultural organisation to learn “newcomers” the Dutch language. Once a month I host a dinner at my place to show how tasty it can be, saving the world and its animals by eating plantbased. Thats always a joy with a house full of people to talk to and to get to know our culture from the inside out. I might need your hand and help in the kitchen!
    (Hope all this can start again soon as covid is not a partypooper anymore)

    We live with a budget that is paltry, and we’re not wealthy.
    That means we are not able to spoil you rotten, but I cook food for you with love.
    Because im a single mum, i have several jobs and not the time to do things like proper cleaning in the house. (That is where you come in!)
    The house is filled with thriftfindings, and we love to recycle stuff.
    We eat plantbased (Im vegan, my kids flexitarians) therefore I dont provide dairy products. (If you want to use those, during your stay, you can buy them yourselve)

    Contribution to the daily grind is a must. Like be it preparation, washing up dishes, wiping down the table, vacume clean or empty dishwasher (the normal stuff).
    We hope you to be pro active. So your stay does benefit both of us. (I dont want the feeling of me beeing a hotel manager 😣)

    And extra;
    If you stay with us, it would make us very happy if you would contribute to our world travel receipy book.
    Just bring your own favourite vegetarian or vegan receipy to add to the book.
    I'm planning on publish it in the future 😊

    Leaving a readingbook in your own language for the attic where you sleep, would be great to! There is a big pile of books to swop. Then maybe the next workaway guest is able to read it! A worldwide free little librairy!

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    In the days you stay with us, we see you as our family with all the things a Dutch family does. We wil invite you to join us on some events. Like a birthdayparty, neighbourhoodmeeting, festival etc.
    You are free to say yes or no.
    You have the time to do a daytrip. To learn Dutch or just realex in the backgarden or at the attic, where your private spot is.

    And... I wil cook typical Dutch food or learn you how to prepaire that (if you like), as; hutspot, bitterballen, pepernoten, appeltaart, kapsalon, oliebollen, poffertjes, erwtensoep etc. (Vegan ofcourse!)

    At days I work (late shifts) I can take you to the station when my shift starts. About 8 hrs later, I can taxi you back to our place.

    Eindhoven AirPort is near. Only 15 km away. Ofcourse you can use our WiFi, and if you are in to doing things together, we can. I wil help you with all cultural things you want to learn or know.

    There is no public transport here in the evening or during weekends. Ofcourse I can bring you to nearest public transport then. Late in the evening I am not able to help you with that. when kids are sleeping, I wont leave the house.

    And my bike is in the shed. If you would like to go for a spin, you can use that!
