Hello! Now I would love to have a responsible house sitter for about 2 weeks to take care of my bunnies in Espoo. You would share this big terraced house with my two tenants, sleep in my room (double bed) and feed and keep company to two lovely bunnies. In this house there are two bathrooms and sauna, and its nice place, close to the sea. 25 min bus ride to helsinki. I leave 19.9. come back 22.9, leave again 23.9 and return 4.10. You can come already earlier and leave later, or come for part of the time. I still need to meet you! Ask more!

After being a helper myself I would like to host a helper at my summer cottage.
Would like to have some help with garden, and with fire wood.
For a helper we could agree about 4 hours work 5 days a week. You could stay few days or few weeks.
Simple food. I don't eat meat, but you can.

My cottage is very primitive, no running water, outside toilet, solar panels for electricity. I do have a sauna. And wifi!
There is a small guest cotta... more inside
