  • Descrição


    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. I don't mean to be harsh but we get so many people that copy and paste messages to each host or just talk about themselves that I need to put this message here.

    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. You will just receive an automated message response saying that you didn't read my profile and good luck in the future.

    Curious about backyard small-scale home farming including poultry as livestock?

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

    Are you reliable, trustworthy, and strong?

    Are you a hard worker? I mean do you move fast, efficiently, and fiercely with attention to detail?!

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

    Examples of responsibilities could 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 (so much 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


  • Idiomas

    Inglês: Fluente

    Este anfitrião oferece intercâmbio de idiomas
    I speak English well and since it is all I speak, I will be sharing it :) I wish I had the bandwidth to learn another language but I do not. My daughter however is a second-year Japanese student so knowing Japanese would be helpful and could count as your hours if you're willing and able to teach it.

  • Acomodação


    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 each guest is expected to cook once a week per person not counted in hours. That way most nights you get cooked for by me or the other guests and then you reciprocate. It makes for a very tight community bonding experience. That said, if you are out and about and exploring, just text me and let me know you won't be home for dinner so I don't plan on you being here to eat. If there are dietary restrictions, it may be overwhelming for me. For example, vegetarianism is easy enough for me to adjust to for some meals but veganism or allergies are stressful and you'd be responsible for any special food and cooking it. 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 and to clean their own dishes and wipe down the stove and counters afterward. 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.

    Please note that this is a real small-scale farm so you will have roosters crowing at 2 am, smell animal smells and get dirty while you are helping. It is not a petting zoo type of farm but a small-scale working farm emphasis on working lol

    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
    An apple account as the schedule is put into "Notes" and it is just easier. If you do not have an iPhone, try and see if you can still have an Apple account and if not, we can work something out but you must have the American sim card for communication
    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. (This is changing as we speak, so look up the laws for O'ahu island at the time of your interest)
    Your personal soap, shampoo, conditioner etc
    Laundry soap if you want to use the laundry on site. I don't charge for the water, power etc but please just buy your own laundry soap etc

  • Algo mais...

    Algo mais...

    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 is 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 of anything even E-Cigs, 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 and small sedan available to rent daily or hourly but absolutely no pressure. It’s there if you want but the bus system is too. 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. Turo is also an option on the island and getting more affordable but have to rent it by the week etc. It used to be crazy high. Transportation to and from the airport can be costly if you take Uber or Lyft and the bus is long but send me your flight info and if I can get you, I will. Chipping in for gas is always welcome as gas like everything in Hawai'i is so much.

    Please reach out to me with any questions or if you see my calender is filled for the dates you want, I don't mind you reaching out if you just acknowledge that you are aware its booked but just wanted to check to see if any changes have happened.
