    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Miami is the Magic City , the gateway to Everything Florida. The weather is wonderful in winter, a get-away from ice and snow, but very tropical , humid and hot in summer - that 's great for swimming in the warm oceans . Not so great for any garden or outdoor work. The heat and humidity of summers can be debilitating. We still have to clean and attend the gardens here.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Attention workawayers!! Please read our listing carefully & thoroughly & contact us only if you are a serious inquirer, & you feel that you are a good fit for our home stay, & that we are a good fit for you. *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️. This is a rather long host profile but hopefully you will have a better, thorough understanding & familiarity with us as people , as a family, as Hosts. These posts are the results of years of hosting experiences. No Surprises .

    We worked with The premier world airline Pan American World Airways for almost 40 years , have traveled the world, have seen many countries, loved the experiences of doing that, of knowing other cultures. We welcome the opportunity to host volunteers from around the world to come to stay with us. If you are interested, please contact us. We can fill in with more details for you.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Be sure to include travel dates of your availability also check our Calendar . We can accept stays of 4/3/ and 2 months , but we prefer only a 1 month stay . Ask me and I will tell you why. We are a private family ; we feel its not proper to host very short stays, in and out, like a hotel or hostel does. . We are not a commercial hostel / hotel.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ We have 5 little dogs who live with us as family pets, inside / outside our home - they have their pet door to go to the outside garden. . We do not often use strong disinfectants to clean and laundry . . how ever If you have any allergies, this is not the place for you.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ If you don't enjoy dogs, don't want to hold, pet and comb them , then you will not be happy with us, And we won't be happy with you either. We are not complicated.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Jose normally works 12 to 14 hour days, so he is up very early . That means that in the evening he is in bed early, The household has to be quiet. If you want to party & make noise, great, but *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ NOT inside our home. We are very quiet people and I want to stress that - we don't talk loudly, try to always be soft and gentle, not make noise.
    * Noise is just not our style.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ We Don't smoke, don't ' party', don't entertain. I emphasize this - We do NOT talk loudly, We are private, quiet people , pretty happy I'd say, maybe kinda' boring.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Again I want to emphasize that Our area is a safe, family neighborhood, not near the tourist areas and Miami Beach. Still, major transportation via bus and metro train is minutes away .

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ We are not a restaurant . We do not serve meals. For the most part you * have to supply your own food. Many near- by markets with excellent prices are walking distance. Even better, there are a dozen good little restaurants from every country . Our Kitchen closes at 10 p m. Important issue - we are committed VEGAN * and do Not permit bringing or cooking animal flesh nor animal products in our home. We do not eat animals.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Early is the Key Word here - but some days, we are sleeping late. The dogs are awake at 7 a m and so are you . We have had some volunteers who wanted to stay out all night and that is fine but coming back in the middle of the night is not fine. If you want to stay out late then you have to stay out the entire night and return the next day after our household is waking up. .

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️. There is valid reason for this - the little dogs will bark loudly at any movement during the night . Sleep at night, awake during the day is the rule here. Night time is quiet sleep time.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Help is appreciated doing everyday housework, laundry, keeping the garden clear of fallen leaves and twigs , washing the cars, taking the trash out, normal things done in life every day , sweeping floors, mopping floors. Nothing complicated. But it IS housework. It is cleaning and laundry.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Some few hours in the mornings does it all, then the day is all yours. That really says it all. Of course, nothing is written in stone and we can always vary what we do here and the hours we do it

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ If you have dog allergies , forget about coming here.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ We have a laundry room, & kitchen , Air Fryer, Toaster Oven, & Microwave , must be kept clean ! We provide spices for cooking & sundries products for you. Condiments and mangos in season.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Everglades and Biscayne National Parks, provide comp/ no fee entrance and transportation but only November to May may be cut down to fewer months, and only on week ends. . look up Homestead. National Parks Trolly.

    House Rules
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ NO vulgarity,
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ NO smoking .
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ NO drugs or alcohol . Any questions - just ask .
    *️️️️️️️️️️. *️️️️️️️️️️ No animal products
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ We will try to be great Hosts if you try to be great Work Away - ers.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ We love waking up to the new day, a fresh cup of coffee, with a happy smile to say Good Morning.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
    Many stereotypes about Americans will be changed. We have had so many people tell us how different life is here compared to the ideas that are held about us. They will see and learn the reality for themselves about Americans and our many life styles.

    IMPORTANT. UNTIL WE RECEIVE A COPY OF YOUR * AIR TICKET, SHOWING FLIGHTS, DATES, NAME AND A COPY OF YOUR * PERSONAL ID (LIKE PASSPORT) , WE can not accept you .

    Help
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ We require that our cultural guest volunteers maintain themselves in all ways, as well, financially, and respect our home family rules. I repeat - NO vulgarity, NO smoking, NO alcohol. NO drugs No Animal products. I am so weary to hear vulgarity in my language that now seems to be a fad.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Showering each night before going to bed is mandatory. After a day of work and play the human body needs a good cleaning . Or your bed will stink. So will you.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Important *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️
    We require a copy of a photo ID such as passport, divers license, also copy of the ticket showing name and flight information both before arrival. and fully vaccinated for covid virus.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Kitchen is closed at 10 p m. *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Neither is it ok to be up during the night prowling around the house or trying to cook . No No No

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Night time here is Quiet Time. *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Sleep at night, *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Awake and up during the day.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️ The help appreciated is to keep this little house clean, dusting, sweeping, mopping, etc etc - nothing difficult . Also to keep the drive ways and walk ways clean, and we have blowers that do a great, easy job.

    *️️️️️️️ *️️️️️️️ There was some issue of how many hours to help but that depends on you . I know from living here since 1971 raising 3 children, having a full time job at. the airport and more, just how long it takes to do each and every task here - I have done it all myself over many years. Some of our volunteers get everything done in a couple hours and some of them take a couple days to accomplish the Same Things. Some of our volunteers never get it and struggle just to do anything. They seem to see this program as a Play Away not a Work Away. The hours you spend will be up to you and what is accomplished will make the difference for both of us. We discuss this more in details as we go along. Remember that if you are not happy and agreeable, then neither will we be so its much for both of us. We are not a business so we do not have a time clock for you to punch or to hold you to . Some of our helpers have worked for some full days doing many extra things so they could take extra days off like for a 3 or 4 day trip to Key West. Flexible works best for all.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️We are actually easy-going and will do our best to be great hosts if you will do your best to be a great volunteer. fyi. My telling you or showing you, how to do anything is not a complaint. Please keep this in mind.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Most of All - *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Must love Dogs,

    We are happy to teach correct, proper, grammatically correct English , very able to do so thanks to years of teaching English, but we have also learned that our work away -er has to have a basic knowledge beforehand or it is just too- too -too difficult for both work away-er and for hosts. We also have allowed some time to study on the computer and we have DVD s to share in English on nutrition.
