Area: CaliforniaEnergetic, active, social, creative family of four. We live in a large house on an island/suburb of San Francisco (a 20 minute ferry ride to city) and 5 minutes to Oakland International Airport, 30 minutes to SFO & San Jose, CA. Family includes a First grade girl (age 7) and Second grade boy (age 8) and busy mom (former event planner and travel business owner), and dad who works in Banking/Real Estate in the SF Financial District. We have been married 21 years and enjoy stable, honest relationships. We are highly educated and hard working, but we love to laugh, travel, explore, and each day is an adventure! We would like to share our friendly home with someone who is respectful, honest, organized and kind. Reliability and dependability is a must! We have raised our two kids speaking some Spanish, but we would like to practice more! Our daughter is also beginning Mandarin. The kids ride bikes to school M-F. Our neighborhood is friendly; walkable paths on lagoons, with water views (including gorgeous San Francisco Bay!) We live on a safe cul-de-sac, in a suburb of SF. You can walk less than one half mile to the passenger ferry to San Francisco! You can also take a commuter bus or train to San Francisco. You would stay in our large guest room with Queen size bed and TV/DVD. We have free internet access in the house. You will enjoy meals during the work week with our family.
