  • Description


    ****Updated May 15, 2022. I've really enjoyed the Workaway program, and I'm looking forward to starting again now that the Covid situation is improving. ****

    My husband and I have closed our bnb business that we used to invite Workaway volunteers to help us. We have moved to Vancouver, WA (actually much closer to downtown Portland than our previous location was). We now live in a community. I live in a tiny house located on the property. Jeff has a bedroom in the main house. We have a variety of roomates who love to travel, and they are willing to make their rooms available to volunteers when they are out of town. Our new home has a variety of maintenance tasks in the house, yard, and garden that we would appreciate help with. We also enjoy help with cooking and cleaning and always dog walking! Our new household multi-generational (ages from 72 years to 22), and is very non traditional. It works best if you are LGBTQ friendly.

    We love to invite people to visit our little corner of the world, and hosting them as they discover the Pacific Northwest is a real joy for us! Please feel free to contact with any questions you may have.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are happy to practice English with you. I am native to this part of the US, so I understand the history of the location, and am happy to share this with visitors. We also enjoy cooking the local, fresh cuisine and sharing meals with our guests. We like hiking and getting out in nature. We are happy to help with coordinating how to get to some of the best sites in the area.

  • Aide


    When we travel, we need someone to help with feeding our cat, and sometimes our dogs (although the dogs typically travel with us), and monitor the house. Walking the dogs is always appreciated! I have a lot of different projects that I am working on, and sometimes there are times when some help with these is appreciated. It's great to have someone help with light housework, including: laundry, dishes, vaccuming and some cooking. I'm always working on some sort of furniture project, so if you are inclined to help with this sort of project, that's great! I can also use some help setting up some computer projects. As we move into winter, the yard may also appreciate your assistance.
