    Description

    Aloha! We are a family who raises our own food right here on the beach in Hawai’i. I started back at work now that my children are older and have found I could use some help with the care of the plants, house, and animals. We live in a town with the highest amount of native Hawaiians in the state and the best weather and beaches. Our home is located across the street from a gorgeous secluded beach and a small mountain hike that is perfect for sunset.

    PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS TO WHAT TASKS ARE EXPECTED AND HOUSEHOLD RULES. PLEASE ONLY RESPOND IF IT ALIGNS WITH YOU PERFECTLY. If you email without reading the profile in it's entirety and email accordingly, I will feel like you sent a copy/paste message and I won't host you.


    Curious about backyard small-scale home farming?

    Wanna learn what it takes to plan, maintain and run? Not afraid of dirty work?

    Are you reliable, trustworthy, and strong?

    Two-week minimum commitment as it’s a lot of energy for me to teach

    Examples of responsibilities would be:

    Feeding and watering ducks, quail, chickens, rabbits

    Sanitizing feed and water containers and habitats

    Turning animal manure into healthy fertilizer

    Cleaning out animals coops

    Learning how to diagnose basic bird disease and treat

    Planting, pruning, fertilizing, mulching, and harvesting fruit trees

    Starting seedlings and transplanting

    Gaining knowledge on weeds. Most can be made into medicine or food. Removing them from places they shouldn’t be and feed the animals with them

    Collecting, washing, and packaging eggs from all the birds

    Basic repairs on cages as needed

    Mowing, weed whacking, sweeping

    Helping maintain the community living space an hour a day or so. (not counted in hours as you will be using the living room, kitchen, bathrooms just like at home.)

    Maintaining a live compost pile

    Handy(wo)man skills

    Ethically harvesting birds (if you’re comfortable with it)-absolutely optional

    Deep cleaning inside the house

    Random things that I need help with

    PLEASE WHEN REACHING OUT TELL ME SOMETHING THAT SHOWS ME YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND THE TASKS. ONLY REACH OUT IF YOU DO AND SEE THAT I HAVE AVAILABLE. SO MANY PEOPLE REACH OUT AND DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO THE CALENDAR OR TASKS and that makes me feel like they wouldn't actually pay detailed attention to rules or work. :(

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    Private entranced, beautiful, well maintained shared large bedroom with small walk-in closet, two beds, microwave, and mini-fridge. The commitment for the room is 25 hours per person each week. Shared bathroom with the other room downstairs. Shared kitchen in main living space.

    Security cameras on property and gates help keep everyone safe but the neighborhood has some houseless folk that can be visually rough if you're not used to it. No danger to your person but you don't want to leave things in your car or loose on the beach.

    I cook dinner most nights for the family anyway and have always included our work-trade friends. I LOVE when guests cook for us and usually people offer once a week per person not counted in hours. If there are many dietary restrictions, it may be overwhelming for me. For example, vegetarianism is easy for me but veganism would be hard to help with. I cook mainly dishes from the farm. So fresh veggies, side starch, and a small animal protein. I love to cook and with help on the farm, I will have more bandwidth to do so. Breakfast and lunch are the responsibility of our guests to care for themselves. Fresh chicken, duck, and quail eggs are always available. I am happy to provide food for you but specialty foods will be the responsibility of the guests.


    Alternatively, if the studio bedroom is occupied by other workawayers, we have hosted people camping. We have a large tent on our raised deck under a large banyan tree overlooking the mountain range with a super comfy thick air mattress, power cord to the tent with three outlets, access to kitchen, bathrooms, laundry etc. the work commitment is only 20 hours a week each instead of the 25. We can even host couples with this accommodation I have added photos so you can see what to expect. If my calendar has it marked in yellow, that means the rooms are taken but the tent camping is available. Please only reach out of that is something you’d feel comfortable with. People seem to really enjoy it and I get many many emails every day.


    Please note that this is a real small-scale farm so you will have roosters crowing at 2am, smell animal smells and get dirty while you are helping.

    Things to make comfier/easier for you:
    Earplugs/white noise machine if you are a light sleeper
    Sunscreen and bug spray as you are in the tropics
    Closed-toed shoes but also flip flops (we call them slippahs here)
    Shorts with elastic band for ease of movement
    Tank tops or yoga tops
    Sunhat if you want. I don't use one but I have had guests really like having theirs
    US sim card if your phone is foreign. Walmart carries them here on the island
    Copy of vaccination card as a lot of indoor activities on the island need a copy of negative test result within 48 hours or vaccination to enter.

    We live across the street from the beach, the bus line is within 150’ and takes you anywhere on the island but takes a while, hikes across the street, waterfalls within 2 miles, camping near as well. It’s the countryside in Hawai'i and everything you think it is :)


    Expectations are that we are a family so please be well mannered, non-smoker, not religious, kind, not a huge partier, communicative, help clean up after meals like good guests, and connected. We want to learn from you as well! I know it sounds like a lot to absorb but we have hosted a lot and know what works and makes everyone happy. COMMUNICATION! Can't wait to have fun!

    There is a truck available to rent but absolutely no pressure. It’s there if you want but the bus system is too. The truck is old but dependable and $50 a day. Most of the time the workaway guests chip in so it doesn’t cost anyone much. Again, this isn’t mandatory or expected. Just if you want. Touro is also an option on the island and getting more affordable. It used to be crazy high.
