    We are next in need of a work-away in the summer to help with garden work, family maintenance (cooking, cleaning, and helping get the kids to swim camps/activities), as well as some dog sitting and childcare.

    Hi! We are a family for four and one pup living in the Bay area. We moved to the quaint island town of Alameda CA and need support with some home projects (if you happen to be into DIY projects), but also help with general home and life maintenance with two very active children. Jay works in gas control for the local utility company and Andrea is a social worker who currently owns her own practice. We have a 9 and 6 year old daughters and a 12 year old dog, who all love attention, music, dancing, nature, and general shenanigans.

    We recently moved into a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home. We are just a few blocks from the beach, the ferry into San Francisco, and the very bustling Park St. of Alameda.

    We ask for general covid safety and are only looking to host other vaccinated and boosted adults. We are also looking to host either a female workaway or a couple.

    We currently looking for help in the summer, helping us to care for a small edible garden, cook meals, help us organize the home, clean, take the kiddos to camp, and just help us manage our chaotic life. Bonus if you have has some carpentry skills and could refurnish a table or build a mantel.

    We are only looking to host female workaways or a couple. We are also only looking to host vaccinated guests.

  • Arbeit


    As we move into our new home, we need help organizing, building and getting our garden/backyard in working order. We would love someone who can help with some cooking and cleaning as we get settled into our home.

    We would love someone(s) who has skills in gardening and/or carpentry. Our main projects include building a cabinet and a fireplace mantel. We would want someone who knows something about plants and taking care of a garden. We also want someone who is able to cook healthy meals for our family and manage general household activities. We would also love to consider someone who could help us build or upgrade a website, and has a good understanding of SEOs.

    You will have your own bedroom in our three bedroom house and a shared bathroom with the girls. The home is not super large, but we will try to give you the privacy of your own room as much as we can. Andrea asks for access the the room for 30 minutes a few times a week so that she can use the elliptical which is housed in your room. We currently have a queen mattress, which sits on a bed frame. We are heathy eaters, and will have dinner together many nights, unless Jay is working on night shift, but hope you can help with cooking some of your favorites through your stay. We will provide breakfast and dinner, but ask that you provide to your own lunches, as we are not typically around during the day. We also are sometimes busy on weekends and ask that you be independent enough to manage when we are out and about.
