We are a family of four (parents 32 yrs, kids 5 yrs and 3 yrs) + big dog and pet rats. We are looking for a helper to stay with us at our home but also at our summer cottage. We need help with ordinary gardening work, making fire wood, painting and some small repairs. On rainy days, you might have to do some cleaning indoors. We are not expecting you to cook or to take care of the pets. We like to visit our relatives in Helsinki and in Lovisa, so you are welcome to follow along if you wish.

Plus sides:
- 5 hours of work per day, two days off.
- You can enjoy swimming, rowing, fishing, berry picking etc. at our summer cottage. The cottage is by a beautiful lake.
- We will give you free language lessons (Finnish or Swedish), if you wish.
- We speak fluent English and Swedish, some Russian and French. The kids speak only Finnish and Swedish.
- Our home is only 1 hr away from Helsinki, so you can take the train and visit the capital.
- We like going to events and museums, we like board games, books and movies.
- WiFi
- Piano
- Sauna

- No smoking, heavy drinking, inviting friends without our permission.
- You will have your own room, but it is small. Our house is not luxurious by any means.
- Our cottage does have electricity but no running water. The main building has seen better days, but it is spacious.
- The kids and the dog make a lot of noise, so if you are a very private and peace loving person, this might not suit you.
- Maximum stay 1 month
