  • Description

    Description

    We are a busy family who could use help in the house. We love to travel, but because of the little ones and life stay mostly local these days. Our kids are fun and energetic. We have a great community and love having friends over often (or did, pre-Covid).

    We live in a beautiful area of California. It's a small, quiet town, but close to San Francisco and Berkeley, with decent public transportation (good by American standards) so you can get around and explore but have a safe, quiet base to come home to.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A chance to explore a beautiful part of the country, and of course practice speaking English. There are many other workaways nearby so it's easy to make friends from around the world and explore together.

  • Help

    Help

    A mix of light cooking, cleaning, and errands. In addition would love language practice/teaching if you speak Mandarin/Spanish/Turkish.

    We're also open to other ideas if you have particular skills or interests that could be helpful. (For example if you're a great organizer, our house can use some help. If you have a green thumb we'd love to grow some vegetables in the yard...) Basically helping me manage our sometimes chaotic household. If you can speak Mandarin or Turkish to the kids and/or cook Turkish food a plus!

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Private room in our house. We live in a great place, it's a small island (Alameda) with views of San Francisco and the bay. We're just a few blocks walk from the ferry to San Francisco, and bus lines run near the house for travel around the bay area. It's quiet, safe, lots of walking and bike paths along the bay and lagoons. (We can provide a bike for you to use.) It's a quiet suburb, but 30-40 minutes from San Francisco and Berkeley, 5 minutes from Oakland. Also, there are a number of other workaways and au pairs staying in the neighborhood, so you'd have adventure/travel buddies to explore with if desired.
