    A family living in a traditional 90 year old house and garden in Svolvær, Norway

    We are a small family. Baby boy born 1st April 2023 has joined and we also need help with the baby (playtime, meals, change, walks etc)
    We have also been renovating the traditional, three story Norwegian original modernism vila from 1930 in Svolvær, Lofoten.

    A jungle garden, leaky garage, windy walls and winding staircase will be renovated back to 1930 style. There is a tenant in the middle floor and basement. You will live on the top floor with us.

    We reach out for mature travelers or couples, able to adapt and eager to explore what Lofoten has to offer. Prefarable minimum 30 years old and with lots of life experience and travel stories to share.

    You will have your own bedroom, there's a shared bathroom and kitchen and a large comfy sofa.

    We both work shifts on a ship and will be away at times, up to several weeks sometimes, but for now one of us is always home with the baby.

    I love big indian stews with lots of spices and lentils and will often cook up a big warm pot of this when im home.
    When at home we can go fishing and harvesting from nature depending on the season, my diet is usually freeganism, and supplying when needed from stores.

    If we go away to grandparents or such and you stay at the house the basic will be all at your disposal, but if you need anything special/extra you buy this yourself. Same with candy, snacks or alcohol during the stay.

    We can not accommodate smokers of any kind as I'm very sensitive to the smell and don't want the baby around smoke. We can not accommodate very strict diets. Vegan/vegetarian are very welcome as long as rice, pasta, potatoes and grains are included

    There are very many outdoor activities in the area, some are charged and some are not. We have access to some gear if you don't bring your own.

    If this sounds appealing to you please drop us a message. Minimum include who, when, how long and what you can help with for a start.

    Look forward to hearing from you!

    Kim, Anker and Karina
