---> I AM CURRENTLY TRAVELLING, I WON'T BE ABLE TO HOST ANYONE BEFORE MID FEBRUARY! THERE IS JUST NO CHANCE, I'M NOT EVEN AT HOME!
Please forgive me if I set the wrong category, I suppose I'm a "homestay", but I'll tell you who I am, whatever label I'm supposed to put on me :o)
I live in a flat by Lake Como, that I sometimes rent to tourists for a couple of days just to earn a little extra that allows me to dedicate more to my poorly paid job.
I love this area but I see it can be expensive for youngsters traveling, so I would be glad to offer accommodation for short periods in exchange for a little help to keep the flat clean and tidy.
At the moment, I am looking for helpers for these main tasks:
- paint the walls in the stairs
- spend some time in the under-roof/loft to tidy it up and clean it, because right now it's a big, big mess, with a lot of dust that I am allergic to. But I'd like it to become an extra space to live in
- help me with the paying guests: welcome them when I am away for work, and clean up the room for them when I don't have time.
The first two are for short-term helpers, preferably between mid February and mid March
For the third I prefer a longer commitment, possibly at least a month (but contact me even for a shorter period and we'll see if that can work).
For short term helpers I can probably provide a private room.
To longer term helpers I can offer a shared room with myself or paying guests, depending on how busy it is.
There is only one bathroom with a shower.
There is no internet connection at the moment, but I am going to work on that.
I can also offer simple board: if you like what I buy, you can have it.
I can't tell you a specific amount of hours, never mind about that, I'm not strict if you're not: there might be tasks that can be procrastinated, but other that need to be accomplished straight away. It all depends on common sense.
I hope to see some of you soon :o)
