We are an open-minded, down-to-earth honest and caring family who loves adventures and to have fun. Apart from me Elsa and my husband Micke, we have three children; a boy born 2006 and two girls, one born 2009 and the youngest 2012. They love to go on the trampoline, play games, go on their bikes…more or less all activities outdoor as well as indoor.
We also have a red little cat Simba, a rabit Zingo (which is free to move around the house as it wishes) and a white hamster by the name Lady.
Since we have lived in Boston for a year, the older children speak English. The youngest has picked up alot from our amazing workawayers and she loves speaking English. I also know a little French and am starting to learn Spanish.
We live outside a smaller town (~22 000 inhabitants) 40 minutes by train from Stockholm. There is a nice lake with a beach less than 5 minutes walk from the house where it is also possible to play beach volleyball and miniature golf in summer
We are very lucky to have an outdoor spa and a sauna which you are of course free to use.
Since both Micke and I work a lot and we need help keeping up with the house-hold chores. We also a garden and a few maintenance projects that we'd like to finish. Tell us what you like doing and I am sure we can find a way that we can make your visit to as a good experience as well as great help to us!
We have had many workaway visitors and this way to meet new people and friends is great. The way they have contributed and helped us has been amazing.

We’re a family of global influence having lived in Boston. I have also spent a few years in Australia (my sister still lives there), lived in France, England and Switzerland, we love travelling and meeting new people.
We live close to Stockholm but also towns like Västerrås and Strängnäs. We can also offer the best of Swedish wildlife; 5 minutes walk from the house there is a lake good for swimming and fishing (fishing license might be needed).
The area is fantastic for walking or cycling , we have bicycles here for you to use to explore the area. The track starts only meters from our house.

We are interested in motivated and practical people who likes to have fun. We’re very relaxed and enjoy having visitors, especially ones that like to help out!
Your job can be gardening, housework, cooking, baking, cleaning, childcare (spend time with the kids when they get back from school, do homework and other), occasionally there is some building and fixing. If you’re into sports our kids love to play ping pong, badminton, soccer, beach volleyball and all sorts of kids’ games. Our kids love to go to the pool, maybe you could take them?
You can let us know what you like to do and we're sure we can find a mix of work that will make your experience here good as well as very valuable to us.
We offer meals and accommodation in exchange for 5 hours work a day.
We love to cook and enjoy a nice meal together. We have two "teams" in this house; the team cooking and the other clearing the table and making sure the kitchen is back to "spick and span condition" after the meal. Sometimes you might be part of one team, sometimes the other, whatever suits the plans of that day!
We see that the duration of a stay is around a couple of weeks , it's fantastic to have people visiting us, lovely big dinners and the house full of laughter and fun. We also appreciate the times when it is only the five of us so we try to plan so we get this time on our own every now and then.
We appreciate thouroughness; we prefer quality rather than quantity.
What is also very important for us that we both honour the workaway agreement; we will do all we can to make your workaway experience as nice as we can and you take responsibility for helping the agreed hours.
