  • Description



    We only host international females. No Americans as we enjoy learning about other cultures and No Males due to sleeping arrangements.

    Looking for someone to organize and clean 4 hours a day and then you can walk to town, ride a bike to the beach, or hop on a bus to see the sites around places like Pismo Beach, Oceano Dunes, San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay. Come experience the new year in California!!!!

    Availability subject to COVID requirements.

    Our family is always on the go, very laid back, and enjoy going lots of places in the community that you are welcome to join us at if you so desire.

    We have very much enjoyed workaway and have hosted over 70 people and have met many great young women from around the world who my kids and my family have loved. Italy, Canada, Austria, Czech Republic, Mexico, Germany, Brazil, etc.

    My 8 year old son is VERY active but is super cute and fun to be around once he warms up to you.

    My daughter 12, is very talkative, especially with workawayers, and is very bright. If you want to practice your english, she will talk to you from the time you wake up until the time you go to sleep if you allow her. She loves music, mainly signing, and is very grown up in so many ways. She also loves the Beatles and wants to learn guitar if you can help with that.

    We live in a town called arroyo Grande. It is a cute town with lots of community events and we live in walking or biking distance to it all. 5 minute drive to Pismo beach, maybe 20 by bike, and we have a great park out our back yard.

    We are looking for someone who fits into our family, and helps out with our daily needs, and that enjoys being here just as much as we enjoy having them! We don't want someone we have to ask to do thing...we just want them to help out as they can if that makes sense. Sometimes we have had workwawayers we have to give very specific instructions to but we prefer workawayers who just take initiative and do things to be helpful.

    I am all about you also enjoying your vacation so how you help us is flexible, we just sit down every few days and talk schedules and see who has what going on and make a plan.........we will also help you find fun activities and outings in the area.

    p.s. no smokers, we have allergies, and we have a cat and a bunny.
