    We are a relaxed retired couple hoping to better maintain our gardens, house and pool for the summer. Our children are grown and out of the house so we could use some helping hands.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Denver was the gateway to the gold rush in the 1840's and trade center to the west and has many historical sites and western art history to view. It is also known for the most off road biking trails within the city limits offering many beautiful views of the foothills and prairies. We enjoy working along side our guests and providing them information about the many activities and events that are happening in the area. There are many festivals and events going on all year long, and fabulous concert venues.

    The odd jobs around the house are adding up and we would love for anyone capable of cleaning, gardening, planting, organizing. The jobs are not difficult. We expect 4 hours of work each weekday, but times/days are very flexible. We enjoy working along side our guests. Couples or friends traveling together is preferred.

    Separate living quarters, queen bed and futon, kitchenette and bathroom, with tv, high speed wireless internet. Our backyard has a pool, perfect during our sunny Colorado summers, and a hot tub as well. We have kayaks, paddleboards and a canoe that you are free to use in the lake behind the house. Mountain Views and only a quick 10 min bike ride to the train that takes you all over Downtown Denver including trains directly to the airport. We have bikes for you to use on the many miles of bike paths in and around Denver. No smoking indoors. We do not have any pets, and sorry our property is not appropriate for cats or dogs. Meals are not always provided, but we will provide ingredients for you to cook on your working days. We do enjoy sharing meals together, but depending on the schedule we may not always be able to eat together.

    We live in Littleton, an exceptional town with great local restaurants, breweries, coffee shops, and any shop you'd need, all within walking distance. Littleton hosts many events and festivals throughout the summer months. We are located close to the rail station with only a 20 minute train ride to downtown Denver. Denver has a very active nightlife, fantastic museums, most Broadway plays come to Denver and nearly every type of musicians. Also there are professional baseball, basketball, hockey, football and soccer teams, so the sports enthusiast is never without a world class game to attend. We have traveled throughout Europe and appreciate the traveller that is looking for a comfortable place to rest and easy access to entertainment.
