I am Bob and my wife is Leanne, we host guests in 2 tiny houses on our family acreage. For now, we have stopped hosting guests in our home and would like to offer a room to a lovely young person interested in helping us be the best hosts in the best spot out there! We are seniors and it can be a lot of work during busy times so we would be happy to have some help with the day to day housekeeping and outdoor yard and garden maintenance. Golden is a mecca for anyone wanting to experience outdoor mountain life - hiking, mountain climbing, mountain biking, river rafting - and the list goes on.
We are looking for help from June first to the end of September
Help in the house
Being a part of a tourism community is vibrant and exciting and you will have the opportunity to interact with the most interesting people from all over the world. We enjoy exploring the fantastic back country in the area and can share some of our special places and give suggestions for places to visit or accompany us on outings.
We need help with the two tiny houses when one group of guests depart and another group of guests arrives. If both tiny houses have been full to capacity, there can be 10 beds to change so laundry is a big factor - we have a reputation for the cleanliness of our cabins and maintaining it is very important. I must emphasis that we would like our guests to experience the cleanest possible environment so as well as doing lots of laundry, this involves cleaning & polishing bathrooms and kitchens, dusting, vacuuming and washing floors etc - but remember - they are tiny houses. It typically takes two to three hour to clean each unit.
We take care of it now so don't worry - you won't be overworked! General maintenance and help with lawn care and gardening is a small part but it all adds to our guests experience and comfort level so will be part of what we need help with. We are looking for workaways that are willing to work with a flexible schedule as the work load depends on when guest arrive and leave. there may be multiple days with none arriving so little work those days. Our guests are usually scheduled well in advance so workaways may be able to plan multi day trips to explore the area when long stay guest are here.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
We live in a large house, with a very well equipped guest space in our walk out level. You will have a large bedroom, a separate bathroom ( might need to share if we have family or friends visiting) and use of the remainder of shared space on that level including a movie room and bar/kitchen space. The family kitchen is on the main level so shared kitchen time and meals is inevitable and details can be worked out.
