  • Description


    We are an adventure loving family of five in Northern California. We currently homeschool our two youngest kids while our oldest is away at high school. We LOVE to travel and have done quite a bit in the past five years. We love workaway because for us it is the next best thing to travel. We have hosted about five different individuals over three years and all were great experiences. To this day we have kept in touch with all of them. :)

  • Help


    At this time, a French-speaking guest with a driver's licence would be best. (We have a car for use.) While our needs have been very different in the past, we really need help with driving now, getting kids to and from classes and sports. My daughter studies French and to have 30 minutes of conversational French each day would be great. She's super easy and an excellent student. Help with cooking and light housekeeping also ideal. While this may come as unexpected, a great candidate would be an independent traveler who enjoys getting out and exploring by themselves during the day, utilizing public transit. We love to have guests but don't have a full days work and so we'd like to know our guest is comfortable taking advantage of the surrounding community in their free time.

    What else ...

    We are a short walk to downtown San Anselmo where there are lots of restaurants and cafes to choose from, as well as stores and a beautiful, small town library. In the opposite direction there is easy access to great hiking and biking trails that will take you up to Mount Tam, the gem of Marin. San Francisco is about 15 miles away, accessible by bus or the Larkspur Ferry. While public transit is available, it is not up to the standards of an urban area.
