Hi! We are a family for four and one pup living in the Bay area. We recently moved to the quaint island town of Alameda CA. 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 7 and 4 year old daughter and a 10 year old dog, who all love attention, music, dancing, nature, and general shenanigans.
We recently moved into a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home and need some help making the place into a 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 adults.
Due to restrictions in our lease agreement, we can only host guests for up to one week.
We would love someone who has skills in organizing, painting, gardening, carpentry.

Our family is vibrate, with regular family dinners and dance parties, We celebrate shabbat most Friday evenings and try to spend time in the redwoods. . We live in a small island town just across the Bay from the vibrant city of San Francisco and bridge of Oakland.
As we move into our new home, we need help unpacking boxes, hanging things on the wall, painting, DIY or getting our garden ready for the summer. We would love someone who can help with some cooking and cleaning as we get settled into our home.
This host offers a language exchange
We currently speak English in the home. Andrea speaks a little bit of Spanish but would love to learn more. We would love to expose our children to a variety of languages and ways of being in the world.
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 only have a twin bed, which sits on a trundle, lower to the ground. We are working on getting a taller/larger bed. We are heathy eaters, and will have dinner together most nights, but hope you can help with cooking some of your favorites through your stay.
The Bay area is an amazing place to explore nature, food, and water sports!
