  • Descrição

    Descrição

    We are a young married couple. both 33 years old.

    We've been a part of the hosting community for some years now, hosting people and making great friendships. Hearing stories from travelers all over the world has made us wanting to try it out.

    A bit about us. We are both from small villages in The Faroe Islands, born in 1989 and got married in july 2012.

    John is a salesman. He is really into sports especially soccer (BIG Liverpool fan) , but any sport in general is good. Loves to try out beers from all over the world, playing soccer and just hanging out, talking over a good meal. He does most of the work on our house to and we consider him quite the handyman.

    Harriet is passionate about photography and has her own business mostly doing photography and fine art photography posters. But she'll take on any creative actives like: sewing, knitting, crafts and you name it. She has her own business selling posters and other things with her art.

    We are also foster parents through child services, so any workawayers will have to keep that in mind and like children when applying for work at our home.

    UPDATE: We now have 2 children. Our older daughter mostly will need a bit of entertainment and likes to play games, so childcare for her is needed.


    Both love : Specialty coffee, animals, traveling, nature, good food and good company.
    We are easy going, calm and friendly.

    We now have two dogs called Scott and Jess both Border collies. Also a barn cat called Zoe and 15 chickens providing eggs for the household.

    We are farmers with 68 ewes + lambs, 4 horses, chickens, ducks, geese.

    At the moment we are building a B&B to be done in July 2022 - there is always some sort of building and maintenance job going on on the farm, since we took over an old farm and it needs to be updated.

    JUNE-September
    *Getting the B&B done, building, painting, decorating, tidying etc.
    *Planting potatoes and other vegetables/herbs in our new garden and fields.
    *Packing orders, posters and other merchandice
    *Help with farm visits
    *Helping out with daily tasks on the farm and in the house like childcare, bottle fed lambs, horses (riding, training, feeding), food, tidy etc. We all pitch in.


    DESEMBER 2022 : We are looking for house sitters over Christmas, since we are going traveling. Mainly to take care of the dogs, cat, chickens, ducks and horses - while living in our home. We also have a farm hand, he will be helping as well but mainly it's the dogs that we would like to stay at home in our house and have some company.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Æðuvík is a really small village and our house has the perfect ocean view, waking up to the most amazing sunrise every morning is one of the reasons we chose to live here. With only 28 houses, nature is at your feet, great hikes and lots of fun fishing, catching crabs, walking in nature, long nights just sitting outside and looking at the stars or even the northern lights if you are lucky.

    We love good homemade food, hosting dinners, cake and good coffee these are things you'll always find in our home :)

    We are both very easy going and see any guest as a friend.

    Also our foster daughter is quite an active little kid, so entertaining her and maybe babysitting if needed :)

    Otherwise we appreciate that our workawayers feel at home during their stay and that means also participating in daily chores like cooking, cleaning, tidying, walking the dogs and so on - If we all help each other, things will go way faster and more smoothly :)

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    We have one extra bedroom built for guests - with your own door out on the (upcoming) porch a double bed 140 cm and fold out baby/toddler bed if needed. With a beautiful ocean view and the most amazing sunrise.

    Our house is the closest to the ocean and built on farmers land, which means no right next door neighbors, no one blocking our view and lots of free range for our dogs to play on.

    Since the house is now almost completely new we have all facilities needed.
    Washer and dryer
    Dishwasher
    Two ovens
    Stove
    Fireplace
    Internet
    Television
    Netflix/ viaplay

    Outside hot tub

    The dogs live inside and sleep mostly in the hallway.

    We like taking workawayers for a drive seeing some stunning places and experiencing the Faroes at it's best, when the time is for it. Otherwise John works in Tórshavn and the busses go most places from there.

  • Algo mais...

    Algo mais...

    Generally we don't have any rules but no drugs please and smoking will be enjoyed outside :)

    The Faroe Islands are not tropical islands, so you need to be prepared that it get's cold up here and the weather isn't always nice, especially in the winter. So bring warm clothes, rainproof jacket and some decent shoes. We can't do anything about the weather unfortunately ;)

    Also Electricity and heating(oil) is really expensive, so we try to take short showers and remember to turn of the switches when not used. Environmentally friendly and all :D

    We are looking forward on meeting you.
