Area: Los Angeles, California - near Downtown LA & University of Southern California (USC)I am a middle-age Asian-American male in Los Angeles who is looking for help with House Work, Yard Work, Light Building Repair, and helping me (I have some health issues). I am very busy with work and need someone to help me. I am a teacher who is well traveled, very friendly, very open-mined and easy to get along with. I enjoy people from different backgrounds, nationalities, and orientations. I am looking for someone who is VERY CLEAN, NEAT, and RESPONSIBLE. I am also very particular about certain routines around my house. And, I can only host only 1 person for a MAXIMUM of 2 weeks.
Area: Oxfordshire, EnglandHi! We are Maddy and Neil and have two young children aged 5 and 7. We live in the countryside in Oxfordshire in a pretty 300 year old cottage with views of fields and animals and red kites circling above, just 10 miles from the famous city of Oxford and within easy reach of London (40 minutes by train from our local station). Although our house is in a rural location, we are close to a motorway and do sometimes hear noise from it although this is not intrusive. Maddy is a part time teacher and Neil works for a fashion company in London. We hosted three Workaway couples in 2013 and will have availability again from May 2014. We are looking for hard-working, motivated and committed couples who know what they are doing and can work alone without too much input from us as we both lead busy lives and are not always here to monitor what's being done. We need people who can manage their own time effectively, can complete tasks without supervision and are happy to work outside in typical British weather (often wet, even in summer!) Volunteers need to be physically fit and have plenty of stamina and have suitable clothing and footwear for outdoor work. They need to be able to get themselves up and start work by 9.30am on working days. All volunteers need their own suitable insurance. The opportunity would suit an English speaking couple (non smokers only please) who are looking for self-contained accommodation and their own space who have plenty of energy for physical work (mainly outdoors if weather allows). We have 8 acres of land, a cat called Oscar and have a small herd of black Dexter cows which we breed for meat. We have planted an orchard and dug vegetable patches. Last summer we bought an apple press to make our own juice. We also have an acre of garden and a heated (in July and August) outdoor swimming pool which you are welcome to use if the weather is warm enough. The nearest village is 0.4 miles away (10 minutes walk) and has a village hall with yoga and dance classes and a lively cricket club. There is a bus stop in the village with regular buses to Oxford (the famous ancient university, lots of culture and museums, galleries, shops, bars and cafes, shops, cinemas, theatres etc) and our lovely local market town of Thame (beautiful buildings, weekly market, lots of pubs and cafes, supermarkets and shops, a library and a leisure centre). We live opposite an organic farm (vegetables, pigs, sheep and horses) and they have a weekly farm shop selling produce, bread, cakes and local jams etc. Our local train station (Haddenham and Thame- 8 miles away) has frequent trains to London but Neil is also happy to give you a lift to North Acton tube station in London on Mondays to Fridays as he drives there each day for work, as long as you can manage an early start! He could also bring you home again in the early evening. There are also pretty walks to explore from the house, including the Oxfordshire Way, and sports facilities at Thame leisure centre.
