Hello! My Danish husband and I live in the beautiful Danish countryside near the fjord and forest near the town of Hals, not far from the bigger, and vibrant city of Aalborg. We have a large estate house and need help running our glamping cottage and holiday apartment and general household/garden help. If you like to cook, we have a huge kitchen and would welcome the help there, too.
We work alongside you--and do not expect you to take everything on yourself! We both speak Danish and English. I work from home and have my own consulting firm. My husband works in Aalborg, for the city. It is our country estate and we have had great success running it as a glamping getaway/small inn. We are looking for someone to help us run only the glamping part as well as help us keep our estate tidy. We are super neat people, just working a lot for the next months! We do not have dietary restrictions, we tend to go to bed early, but we love to make people feel welcome and at home. The house is really large, so we would not be in each others' way. We do not smoke and smoking is not at all permitted in the house, but outdoor smoking is okay.

As a Danish-American couple we can offer unique perspectives on Denmark and help people who want to improve their Danish and/or English skills (I am a professional writer). The area of Nordjylland, and especially Vendsyssel, has its own culture, separate from the rest of the country. The nearby town of Hals (5km) is also centered around an authentic fishing community that stretches back hundreds, if not thousands of years. The nearby larger city Aalborg (30km) is a lovely, bustling, student-rich area with great history and plenty of nightlife, sports activities and all-around fun experiences. Denmark in general, is a wonderful land alive with history, culture, and art.

We are looking for someone to help with general housekeeping and taking care of our guests, as well as gardening tasks. We also need to travel at times and would love to have someone to watch over our place and animals while we are away. We have a beautiful land estate and there are kilometers of forest and shoreline to explore. You would have your own large room with a small bathroom and shower, plus access to a tea kitchen, wifi- smart tv, etc. We can arrange sharing access to our very large kitchen as well.
Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
I would love to brush up on my German and Spanish and we, as a couple, can offer professional level English and native Danish.
You would have your own large room with a small bathroom and shower, plus access to a tea kitchen, wifi- smart tv, etc. We can arrange sharing access to our very large kitchen as well. The room is on the bottom floor of our large estate home that is located on the Limfjord with an expansive view to the water and surrounding forest. We have a gourmet coffee drink machine that makes amazing lattes, etc. There are also two good stand-up paddle boards you are welcome to use.
If you have a driver's license, and we can insure you, we have a car that you can use for day trips. Otherwise, we recommend a bicycle as there is no public transport directly from our estate, but there is plenty of transport in nearby Hals--only 4 km away, with easy bus trips to all points, especially Aalborg.

We have a huge home and really great mesh wifi network, so this is an ideal place for working from home--I do! There is also plenty of office space and desks, etc.
We have a large estate and there is plenty of room for vehicles.
Cats are very welcome, as are dogs, but dogs need to be kept separate from our own dog until they can demonstrate they are good together...we have a dedicate, fenced, outdoor dog run as well.
1-2 hours a day, on average.
