  • Description


    We have room for a Workawayer again from August 24, 2024!

    Hi everyone. We are Menno (44), Yvonne (41), Amadora (9), and our twins Rowan (3) & Gwendolyn (3). We live in a village very close to the beautiful city of Gouda, world famous for the Dutch cheese! If you like a rural setting with all major cities just 60 minutes away by cycling + public transport then this place is perfect for you. There is even room for your car or camper.
    Yvonne works in communications for the Dutch government and Menno works for an international insurance company and speaks fluent English. He worked in many countries all over the world and has a lot of experience dealing with cultural differences. We are very practical and no-nonsense people.

    Share the fun, share the work, and make our house your home. We are a busy but happy household. In our spare time we like good food and movies, reading, walking in quiet nature or visiting a lively city, swimming (there is a swimming pool nearby for summers), and other sports like fitness, karate (Menno has a black belt and can teach you), and cycling.
    If you don't have your own car, being able to cycle (5 kilometers) is really important. if you are a sauna fan you have come to the right place as we have our own outdoor sauna in the garden.

    You will become part of our family, that’s why we want someone minimum for two months. We like to go out exploring and you are welcome to join us.

    Your main task is to help us with the young twins. So we look for a woman with affinity with young children.

    You would help (more or less):
    🦋 Help prepare the twins for (pre-)school at Thursday and Friday (starts at 7 AM, ends at 8:30/9:00 AM). This is a pretty hectic time of day for our family where a lot needs to be done in a short time.
    😃Bring the twins to school 2 times a week (by bike or by foot, 1 kilometer away)
    🦋 You babysit every Monday from 7:30 AM till 12:00 PM, Tuesday from 7:30 till 12:00 AM and on Tuesday from 17:30 PM till 19:30 PM
    ✨Cook a healthy dinner 2 times a week (we are easy eaters)
    💡 Every other week you babysit on Friday evening (17:00 - 22:30), so we can go out and the other week you babysit on Friday afternoon (11:30 - 17:00).
    🦋 Occasionally babysit last minute in case of unexpected circumstances.
    😃 Help with the laundry 2 or 3 times a week.
    🦋 Other light household chores, cleaning out the dishwasher, help cleaning up after dinner, pick up the children toys, etc.

    You mainly help in the mornings and on most days you are free for the rest of the day. It’s a total of approximately 20-25 hours. You are free on Wednesday and the weekends.
    From November 2024, the twins will go to kindergarten 5 days a week and the schedule will change.

    We live in a beautiful new house, with an unobstructed view over the polders / meadows and a big garden. We are surrounded by nature and have a few sheep as pets! You can also regularly see hares, pheasants, cows and sheep in the meadows next to the house.

    You will have your own room of approximately 12 m2 with your own shower and sink on the ground floor. We have a beautiful log cabin with sauna and bathroom in the back of the garden. Which you can also use .

    All meals and normal household facilities (WIFI, laundry etc) as well as bicycle usage will be provided.

    Autres infos...

    Being able to cycle is a big benefit because you can reacht Gouda train station easily. From there you can reach the major cities by train easily. If you can't cycle you are dependent on the bus service which isn't as frequent.
