Parts of this fall and winter, another helper (girl) and I would like help and company in gardening, house painting, maintaining my boats, daily household like cleaning, and more. Not the least USING the garden, house, boats and the nature on this beautiful shore of The North Sea! :-)

You and the other helper(s) must share one of my two guest rooms some nights, as we host paying tourists etc. too. Therefore new helpers should be female.

My home is on rural Tofterøy island; 40 km south-west of Bergen. Wild and beautiful nature. Great for hiking and sea experiences.
Bus connections to Bergen and the airport (BGO).

The short video below, is from Tofta bay, just beneath my house, and the close surroundings. It shows mainly what we can see from my house and garden.

My work capacity is unfortunately rather low now. I provide the tools and instructions you need, but you’ll be relatively independant in your work. You and the other helper(s) must to a large degree structure your time yourselves. Do the work almost whenever you want. :-)

I am happy if you join me on boat trips and on storysharing in our fire heated garden tub! :-) I am introvert, but I overcome it easier there.

You should work 15-20 hours a week in average.

You normally keep your own household and prepare your own food. (You buy; I pay.) You share kitchen with the other helper(s) and a female long-term tenant in rooms next to yours.

You'll have free access to my boat club's kayaks etc. (12 km away.)
You may lend my row boat and fishing equipment.
Lend my bicycles.
I have an assortment of work clothes and boots.

I host a dog sometimes.

I am retired from my job as government adviser on education.
As a trusted member of the Humanist Association, I sometimes perform weddings; being a licensed Registrar/Ceremony Officiant.

Basic values here, are: mutual respect, fun, consideration for people and environment - being trustworthy and responsible!

Welcome to a place for stress-free activity, teaching, learning and great nature experiences; in good company!

2: My 24-foot boat on one of the many islands around here. Guests vading and jumping in for a swim; me diving. (I swim all year round, and company is appreciated!)
3: The ocean and a part of the garden; seen from the ground floor. Tree house under construction. Fire heated tub. Me and two guests in it. A place for relaxing and connecting.
4 and 5: The two guest rooms.
6: My guests are appreciated company both in and around my boat. Me to the right.
