  • Description


    Hello and Welcome!
    I do Holistic Therapies and I am a musician. I've spent a lot of time in various communities including Buddhist centers where I volunteered and lived.
    I like sharing and exchanging skills, ideas... I lived in a very multicultural society in Oxford for many years, so I am very cosmopolitan, open-minded but also down to earth and like to cooperate with others. Cooperating means being down to earth and taking/sharing responsibility.

    Only for people over 26 years old or preferably over 30.
    I AM LOOKING FOR someone who would stay for at least a month.
    (Please relate/reply to the questions in the description.)

    1. To help a bit around the house, tyding up, some gardening, organising space, etc...
    2 some DIY tasks (easy or more advanced depending on your skills)

    I am offering a place to stay for someone mature with good understanding of English. You will need to be happy to do tasks unsupervised. You will be left alone at times. So you need to be problem solving type/a thinking person 😀.
    I would prefer a mature person who has experience in running a house.
    At the moment I do not have a capacity to host a young person who has never had their own flat/house.
    I need someone who is able to share all types of house duties from day one.
    We need someone who is able to blend into our rhythm - a small house with a small child 😀😁
    You will need to organise your social life
    and plan your activities on your own.
    (go visit places, do some studies or simply spend time outside the house and adjust to our rhythm.) Ideally when you spend sometime out when we are in - so everybody has some space for themselves. We spend a lot of time out as well.
    Saying this you need to be comfortable with the English autumn weather - please write to me about your plans.
    I am Polish and very direct and I like to make things clear. Studying Social Anthropology and living in a very multicultural societies/communities I became aware of cultural differences.
    Therefore it is very important to get to know each other a little bit before you come via whats app or another video

    IF YOU would like to learn someting from me or swap skills, treatments, etc... it would have to be organised outside the workaway hours. )
    I would ideally have someone staying longer then a month.
    In exhange you get a nice double sized room with entrance to the garden (and to the the corridor). Lots of quiet time but also some kids "liveliness and noises".
    Our place is quiet and lots of places to walk, cycle and swim in the river ....

    Thank you for reading and please write a short description of your skills. when is the earliest you can arrive. Also did you apply somewhere else?
    Can you please provide your phone number or whats app, etc... for faster communication.

    We can share cooking depending on your way of cooking. We have a very specific cooking requirement. ☺
    I receive a large number of requests. Therefore the more specific and detailed (but not too long) description of your skills and requirements and plans - the better for us.

    You will stay in your own room.
    We will share the kitchen and the bathroom. (there are 2 toilets in the house).

    It is a quiet neighbourhood so no loud music will be allowed,etc...
    There are meadows right behind our house where you can go for walks, etc...
    - village green on the other side.

    Bus to Oxford every 20min (it takes about 35-45min to get to the City Centre). The route is through the nearest town Abingdon (only 5-10min by bus). Very good connection for London. (the fastest train connection through Didcot Parkway -only 45min)

    Autres infos...

    You can go to visit as much as you like. I am flexible.
    My requirement is so that my visitors spend at least one day a week out (not the whole day necessarily but most of it preferably). This gives me and you more space and time for oneself.
    You will be required to do some activities of your choice then either in Oxford or anywhere else.
