  • Description


    We are a newly married couple trying to get our place in ship shape. We would love some help now, for one to two weeks of it works out longer stays may work out.

    Some painting, cleaning and general tidy up is required.

    We are pretty chilled have travelled and done workaway together quite a bit. Cormac plays all sorts of instruments, I shake rattle and roll along with him. We love a good gig open mics, festivals, exploring and having a good time.

    We are Irish so we like to have fun while working, all work and no play makes life extremely boring.

    Send us a quick message with dates included.

  • Help


    We've both volunteered on workaway. No heavy work required.

    Painting and helping our place needs a mini makeover to our liking.

    Myself and my husband both work and will be helping out also but there may be times when your doing tasks solo.

  • Accommodation


    Own room, shared bathroom across the hall in a bottom floor apartment close to Oakland city center, three blocks from Lake Merritt. Lots of artists in this area, always loads of festivals and exploring in this area.

    We have hosted couch surfers, couch surfed ourselves in many different countries. I've managed volunteers for other hosts. We've both volunteered, me more so than my husband. So we are aware of the chilled enviroment travellers enjoy.

    What else ...

    We are based a couple of blocks from the beautiful lake merritt. Bart to SF is close by, we've got bikes you can have. We've got a car and if our work allows we can all go on a day trip and show you around the local area.
