Area: ColoradoWe are a middle-aged couple with 3 daughters from each of our previous marriage. Our two youngest girls are seniors in high school and will be going to college in the fall. Francie is a business professional currently doing consulting work for nonprofits. I am a private client jeweler. We both work at home office/studio and have a busy calendar. We also have a dog and a cat. I love to cook and tend to do a larger share of dinner preparation. We are all on our own for breakfasts and lunches. We frequently host and attend dinner parties. We are early risers (6:00- 7:00 am) and enjoy our quiet time together, reading the paper and walking our dog before jumping into our work day. I love to work in the garden but find it difficult due to joint problems in my knees. Our home is adjacent to open space on the edge of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado. From our home you can access many dozens of miles of beautiful hiking trails and bike paths. You can also walk 2/3 mile and catch a bus anywhere. Denver is a 40 minute bus ride away. Forty minutes north of us is Rocky Mountain National Park and hiking trails, camping, fishing and skiing. There are also 15 golf courses within a 30 minute drive. Boulder is home to the University of Colorado, wonderful restaurants and a vibrant recreation and art scene. It's a beautiful place. Over the past 10 years, we have hosted Rotary exchange students from Denmark, Belgium, Romania and Croatia and greatly enjoy meeting new people and traveling the world. Life with us would provide some time with our family and lots of independent time when we are out at social and community engagements which generally have us out 3-4 nights/week. We hope that our workaway guest(s) will join us for dinner when we are home and, otherwise, as with breakfast and lunch, prepare and enjoy their own meals. Our needs for workaway visitor(s) are 1) 1-2 weeks in late April/early May and 1-2 weeks in late October/early November. We understand this is very limited and would appreciate only hearing from interested workawayers who can match these timeframes, and who are qualified to help with our work requirements.

Area: Koh LantaOur guesthouse is situated on the beautiful beach of Klong Nin on the island of Koh Lanta. We're open all year round and provide bamboo hut accommodation and have a great reputation for our friendliness and relaxed approach and guest who stay with us often comment that they felt more like family than paying guests. This low season we're planning on making some alterations at Roundhouse, including converting an existing kitchen into bungalows, building a new kitchen/bar area, maintainance of existing bungalows, building a clay oven and constructing a sunset view platform and roof. There will also be opportunities for the artisticly minded of you to get creative and help brighten the place up. We're seeking volunteers to help us out with the project during the months of June and July and are seeking hard working and motivated people to come and stay with us and get stuck in. I'm afraid that until June we won't be able to accept any volunteers as we'll still be busy with guests (PLEASE SEE OUR CALENDAR FOR DETAILS) We ask that volunteers are able to commit to a minimum of 2 weeks stay in order to get stuck in to the project, and in return for your help we'll feed you and provide accommodation on one of the best beaches in Thailand. We do ask volunteers for a donation of 100Baht per day to help pay some of the costs towards food. Preferably we're seeking volunteers with some experience of construction of any form, although if you think you have any skills that'll come in handy then get in touch. We also believe in the old saying, 'All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy', and with the sea on our doorstep we like to take time to relax and enjoy life. Volunteers are asked to provide 5hrs a day, and due to the heat during midday this'll mean working 8-11am and then 4.30-6.30pm (roughly) and the rest of the time is yours. We have a bar here and hammocks on the beach to relax in, the sea to swim in, paddle boards to play on and quite often Paul will get his guitar out in the evening.

Area: British ColumbiaWe live in a Rural area in central BC. We have 2 dogs, whom we love very much. My husband works at home operating our own business building log furniture. I work away from home doing bookeeping. We live in a mountain forested area, and we receive quite a bit of snow in the winter months, so an ideal place for a nature lover or someone who is looking for some quiet time. Our house alows for a private room, with Digital Cable TV and wireless internet. You would also have a private bath. Summer time is great here as we are a 5 minute walk to Mara Lake, beaches, fishing and boating. The forested area behind our house offers many hiking trails with gorgeous views.
