  • Description


    Family would love a little extra TLC for home and yard. Painting and cleaning projects, weeding/ gardening and yard work, walking the dog, playing games, sharing your talents like visual arts or crochet etc on Kauai, HAWAII. USA. Have fun in PARADISE!

    We like to go with the flow day-to-day. I get up around 6am (depending on the season) and work online from home in the education field. Usually in the later mornings we homeschool or do errands. In the afternoons/evenings, we like to have another kid over to play or go to swim. We spend most of our time at home. On family days, we might go to the beach or watch movies in the evenings. Or we may do house projects all morning and then make a nice meal and play games. There is a gym within walking distance from our house where you can get a pass, if you're interested.

    **WE ARE ONLY OPEN TO HOSTING THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY BEEN ON KAUAI FOR A MINIMUM OF 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO STAYING WITH US (AS A COVID PRECAUTION). Thank you for this consideration. If you would like to come, please consider making other arrangements on Kauai for 2 weeks and then reaching out to stay with us next. "-)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Kauai is a beautiful place and brings out the ALOHA in people. We'd love to serve as your local "Ohana," (family) while you're here. Before we moved to Kauai, we visited and always appreciate the local hospitality and want to return that to our workaway guests to make it the most fun and memorable experience for them as possible. You will learn how a local family lives and thrives here.

  • Help


    We'd love help with everyday chores like dishes and laundry. We’d also like help with painting indoor and outdoor and other landscaping projects like digging and pruning and weeding and possibly building. We have a few fix-it projects, if you're handy, but it's ok if you're not. We have a small terrier-mix dog who is very sweet and active. We'd love him to join you for a walk or beach outing perhaps. We have an older cat, chickens and guinea pigs. We think a great match would be someone who loves kids and animals and is laid-back like us.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are a short walk or bus ride from the beaches and Kapaa town with food trucks, natural food stores and coffee shops. You'll want to rent a car to make the most of your trip however. You're welcome to join us for outings.
    We are usually in bed around 9pm ish and the house is quiet. You will have access to Wifi but we don't have TV. People on Kauai tend to go to bed early and get up earlier, going with the natural flow of daylight and making the most of hours at the beach in the sun.
