    Description

    We are a family of three in Ft. Collins, Colorado. We are very active...biking, hiking, yoga, mountain biking, dirt bikes, motorcycles, running, Crossfitters, we also camp and have a wake surf boat that we use on a regular basis in season. The winter season would include skiing and winter sports. We like to stay active and play.

    We have a five bedroom house and our guest would have their own private room and bathroom in the finished basement. Our home is modern with great views of the mountains.

    You would EASILY BE ABLE to work somewhere and/or go to and study for school being here with us.

    Only one volunteer at a time, so no couples, sorry. No other pets can join and no smoking in or around our home.

    We would prefer that someone stay for six months to a year.....and want someone that speaks Spanish!!! This is a MUST

    We have lived overseas working in the Peace Corps in Mongolia and living in England. We have traveled all of the continents except Antarctica and travel on a regular basis.

    We have also hosted two high school aged exchange students, one from Italy and one from Spain. We used to foster children that needed parents while they find a permanent home. We also hosted a woman from South African and another from Spain here, we are easy, chill and have a lot of fun.

    We are looking for someone fun and adventurous to live here more longer term, to speak Spanish with us and also occasionally hang with our 10 year old when we bike or travel. He usually joins us, so watching him is just on occasion. He is fun, independent and engaging and we want him to learn Spanish as well.

    We want you to be part of the family, not just help with easy chores. We also volunteer in our community with special needs kids and adults.

    We have two cute white dogs named Bentley and Baylor. I am a dental hygienist and I teach group fitness classes at a local gym. My husband is a real estate agent.

    Basically, room/board/food provided, asking for light housekeeping, cooking, occasional babysitting and that you speak Spanish. We have a home in Bocas Del Toro, Panama and may ask that you watch the house while we go back and forth.

    We are looking for someone to live here for free, do mild house keeping, we are very clean and organized, do laundry once a week, maybe cook dinner here and there, we want whomever to be part of the family, COME AND GO WHENEVER and just help with Skyler and our Spanish.

    We have the private extra room and thought that it would be fun to have someone live with us to help just here and there and be part of our family and speak Spanish with us.
