    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a family who love to get outdoors! And if you're interested in learning more about nature &/or portrait photography I'd love to assist you as I've enjoyed being a professional photographer for years. You'd be welcome to join us in arts and crafts projects. And if you're willing, we'd take you along to art shows and little shops where you may find little treasures unique to our area! I am an English teacher (ESL) and would be happy to help you improve your English if needed.

  • Help


    A couple of extra hands would be great to help get our home fixed up, better organized, redecorated (like painting), and staged to sell within a year or so... (Not certain about selling but sure about getting it all fixed up for our enjoyment anyway!:)

    May also need a math tutor for a 14 year old, & a bit of general supervision for an 8 year old. Both are very well mannered children who love to sing, dance, play piano, draw/paint, & learn new languages. So if you know Spanish or French, that'd be lovely!

  • Accommodation


    We have a guest room that also serves as a library/study. However, during your stay you would have privacy. And though I checked several boxes of how you may assist around the house, we may negotiate meals based upon how many tasks you may wish to help out with, and rather you may choose to eat out yourself. We'll be happy to discuss/agree to terms up front, so everyone is comfortable with whatever arrangements we may work out. We're pretty easy-going and flexible about all that!

    FYI: Our area is rich in historical sites, and plenty to do for entertainment! As mentioned previously many places of business are within walking/biking distance. And there is a bus stop nearby as well.
