We are a 5-member family, formed by our 3 kids (ages 5, 7, 9), my husband and myself (late 30's), with us lives also our 12 year old Riesenschnauzer (nice dog, donīt panic).
We expect to share our everyday routines with any kind of people willing to learn more about our island, language, culture...
We own a nice old stone house in a small town at the centre of the island, well enough communicated by bus, and there are plenty of tracks if you like riding or trekking.
It's easy to reach the most beautiful beaches (if you like surfing, you'll enjoy your time here) or almost any place almost anytime.
We're looking for someone who becomes a new member of our family for some weeks (6 or more), not for a short-stay visitor, principally because of the kids.
My husband is in charge for the cooking, and I take care of cleaning and all the stuff.
On the other hand we expect some help with the children and household. No heavy work or strong timetables.
Internet access at home is also provided, or you can take a walk to the culture centre (100 mts from home).
We can manage with english and german.
There'll be plenty of time for whatever you like and of course weekends are non-working days.
Please have in mind that your main role will be taking care of the kids, which will take a lot of energy and requires a proper attitude, for you'll have to play with them, take them to the playground or the beach and whatever comes.
Due to the "special" attitude of some of our last helpers, just some advice:
*if you find a proper attitude to sit alone 8 hours a day watching tv or a pc screen, while there's some else home, better go somewhere else.
*if you're too shy or too cute or too whatever not to say a word to anyone the whole day through, better go somewhere else.
*if you think you can stop two kids from fighting with some super-mind-power just by staring at them, better go somewhere else.
*if you think dishes and clothes have an auto-cleaning system, better go somewhere else.
*if you don't have nothing to share, better go somewhere else.
*have in mind you'll have to live WITH 5 other people TOGETHER, not just near 5 other people who give you food and share a bathroom with you.
We're open for any questions and/or suggestions.
Hoping to see you soon.
*****SORRY, BUT WE NEED A BREAK IN HOSTING. SOME OF OUR LATE EXPERIENCES HAVE BEEN HARDER THAN EXPECTED, AND WE'RE RE-CONSIDERING OUR EXPECTATIONS AND WHAT WE'RE READY TO OFFER. WE ALSO NEED TO GAIN NEW GAS TO CARRY ON WITH THIS PROJECT AND TREAT YOU PROPERLY. HOPE IT DOESN'T TAKE TOO LONG.*****
