Help me around my home and teach me about your customs in San Miguel, USA



 Min stay requested: No minimum



  • Description


    Hi I'm Kimberly. I like to think that others see me in the same way I see myself, and these are some of my personality traits I am most proud of:
    I am I
    Fun...hardworking.....nurturing...honest....playful...athletic.....considerate......bold and adventerous. I suppose I am too loud and too talkative for some!
    I am a newly divorced gal who lives in a " too big of a house" to be alone in all the time and the tasks are too plentiful for one person to manage alone. I crave travel, yet I can not leave my home at this time, so I'm reaching out for cultural exposure and connection. If I can't learn and grow from world travel, I'll invite the world into my home and life!
    I wish to grow from other people’s life experiences. I strive to experience various cultures, times and places through other peoples eyes. I am a psychology major and I practice this discipline as a professional. I also teach and practice holistic healings, and I want to share that gift with my guests. I am seeking creative hands and minds to help me run my home and enjoy my life more. Lets celebrate and accomplish things together for any and all moments that we may share together.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I will invite and encourage my guests to learn about, teach and replicate holiday traditions and festivals from all around the world here in my home and neighborhood. I will introduce guests to local food and wine festivals, concerts, sporting events and art/dance. I want to host international food and beverage dinner parties followed by music, games and dance from that country.
    Guests and I will embrace and promote our personal and cultural practices and offer to share that with each other. I will teach/share my gifts as a holistic practitioner, as I am a Reiki Master and practice healing and balancing via Chakra work.
    I will be a tour guide for my area and share my community memberships with my guests. I am located in the heart of a famous wine destination with over 300 wineries, 16 wineries in my (San Miguel) neighborhood alone, not to mention word famous golf destinations less than 24 miles from one of my homes ( Spy Glass at Pebble Beach and Spanish Bay). I have a beautiful pool and large jacuzzi and amazing sun sets. Hills all around to hike and bike at the end of my driveway. I am within 30 minutes of beautiful beaches, at each of my two homes. I am 15 miles outside city limits in the breathtaking rolling hills and surrounding Vineyards. I will provide a beautiful home away from home for my guests and lots of exercise opportunities to keep and minds and bodies healthy, active and peaceful.

  • Help


    Looking for individuals or couples who are handy with creating, building and organizing. I have many hopes of adding playful charm and personality to my home and the 10+ acres I live on. I would like to build a vegetable garden, create a privacy fence and living area for my guest quarters, build furniture and organize my garage. I would love to build an outdoor pizza oven or community over like the old days in Italy. I invite my guests to create and infuse various cultural foods, music, dance and art into my home and my lifestyle. I am looking to create new friendships and support the love of travel and adventure, as I too am a world traveler. I see this program as an advanced and expanded spin off of Youth Hosteling. I am hoping my guests will teach me new games, family traditions and celebrate their national holidays with me and my community.
