Hygge; Pronounced “Hue-gah;” is a fundamental quality of Scandinavian life. Danish in origin, It means; in essence, to include several of life’s smallest pleasures included in everyday living into one philosophy while creating a sense of warmth and contentment: the gathering with friends for a meal, enjoying a cozy fireplace in the great room after a day skiing or snowboarding on the mountain, and indulging in a glass of wine on the patio after a Summer’s day at one of Tahoe’s pristine local beaches. These are all examples of how you can “Hygge.”
Hygge Haus Care is the South Shore’s premier start-up Home-Care service; with the main services being Housekeeping for Local Homeowners and Private 2nd Homeowners. The owner of Hygge Haus Care boasts over 15 years of experience in Housekeeping, Home Management, and Hospitality. This Spring, this young entrepreneur decided to create her own small business based on her experience, love for homes, and love for “Hygge.” She works exclusively and directly with homeowners and clients when creating estimates and performing work on the home. The list of services include:
-Housekeeping; using a specified top-to-bottom system with high-end non-toxic products
-Linen turnover/staging for guests & arriving owners
-Staging/turnover for in-home entertainment such as dinner parties, birthdays, special events, etc.
-Vendor Coordination to ensure the upkeep and maintenance of the home for 2nd homeowners.
What sets Hygge Haus Care apart is that it’s a very exclusive relationship between client and the owner. It’s not a maid service, and it’s not a housekeeping company. The owner will cut flowers from your own personal garden and place them in a vase for you before you even arrive; and uses Lavender scent packets that she places around the house and natural plant-derived products to enhance the essence of your home. Linens are folded with care and staged with simple elegance that is pleasing to the eye. She uses European styles and techniques to make beds to stage for arrival. She cleans using a systematic procedure to ensure optimum cleanliness; and has both eyes open at all times to ensure the safety, security, and quality of your home. Hygge Haus Care uses old-world charm and techniques when it comes to the care and keeping of your home; but maintains a fresh and “hip” attitude in her relations with clients. It’s a “new but old-school” take on Housekeeping & Home Services; but is totally unique in comparison to other services in the basin right now!
Communication is the number one tool she uses when taking on new homeowners; and once that relationship is established the home flourishes with an essence of “Hygge.” Rates are dependent upon the square footage and the specific needs of each owner. Your greatest asset is in the greatest hands possible when you become a client with Hygge Haus Care: a small business that is so much more than your average housekeeping company.
So, how will YOU Hygge this Summer?! Hygge on!
