    Description

    Hi! I live in the lower Haight, an area centrally located in San Francisco. We live in a Victorian flat close to Golden Gate Park and many other parks, downtown, the beach and we are steps from buses/trains. Our family of 4 loves traveling and meeting new people. We love help with meal preparation and exchange, organization/tidying, room decoration, kiddy entertaining, pet care and hearing travel stories!

    We REALLY Could use assistance with many things at our Lake Tahoe place (next to Northstar ski resort) - with general upkeep, family and animals ! We have a new shepherd puppy (she needed a home so we took her in ) so PUPPY TRAINING skills are a great PLUS! My 16 year old could use homework help and my 5 year old loves to play with guests!
