  • Description



    Bob and I are in mid life but we love to mix with people of all ages. We speak English. Jennifer is also fluent in Spanish and studies German. Bob understands a great deal of German and needs to practice speaking. He is also studying Russian.

    We are looking for workawayers to help us with our household chores, like cooking, cleaning, GARDENING, and minor repairs at our summer home in Vancouver, WA, USA.

    We take care of 30 horses and the summers are busy! We would be happy to arrange for some lessons for you if you are interested in learning how to get along with horses.

    We have a spare bedroom with a semi-private bath, and we provide all the food.

    We also have three active cats - so you must love cats. There is no way to escape their playful romps through the house!

    For the summer months we would prefer a one month stay please.

    We would love to hear from you!

    Jen and Bob

    Don't we learn something from literally every person we meet in our lives? That is why this network of workawayers and hosts is so awesome! Let's meet and discover what we don't know! For the summer of 2022 we are also offering country living with horses all around. If you are interested in horses we can teach you how to interact with them safely. If you REALLY adventurous you can ride my horse as well.

    If you are visiting us for cat-sitting, the only requirement is that you love cats :-)

    If you are visiting us in the summer, must love the outdoors. We will be working in the garden a lot.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Is helpful to have a car here. We are not close to public transportation. If you would like to spend a weekend on a wine tour, or at the beach, renting a car is also possible. Seattle, Wa, is two hours away by train, and Portland, OR, is a 30 minute drive. Hiking trails are abundant in the summer!
