    Looking for someone to work on sorting and hanging pictures, organizing the garage, helping with ebay listings, and deep cleaning. Also looking for someone with experience with social media, Minecraft, basic coding, and cooking.
    Looking to barter about 4 hours a day of help however you want to do it. Early, late, a little here or there. You have an open schedule to 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 California!!!!

    We are half way between San Francisco and los Angeles off the Amtrack/ Greyhound.


    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 9 year old son is VERY active and loves to play soccer and video games right now and learn about animals especially big cats.

    My daughter 14, loves books and reading, history, writing, music, theater, and is grown up in so many ways, a mini adult. She used to love to chat the workaway's ears off and help them practice english but during the pandemic fell in love with reading so it is hard to pull her away but we can try!

    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 have lots of projects to choose from, but the the kids older now, mainly the chores we have are household or social media, but we also love to hear your interests and skills so please share.

    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 two cats. While you are here you have your own room but a shared bathroom. You may eat what we have but we don't cook much so that is on you.
