We live in a house in the suburbs. If you google Hanauma Bay - you will know that it is located on the nicest and most sought after part of the island. It's a beautiful home with an indoor heated pool. We live seconds from the nearest beach. Close to an outdoor rock climbing wall. A few blocks from the golf course, and literally have a hike in our backyard that has the most amazing view! We also have a beautiful monstrous Banyan Tree in our backyard...we have hammocks in it to take naps in.

If we don't have any guests, we will put you in our guest bedroom. There is no AC in that room, but we have a fan =) If we do have a guest (curse of living in Hawaii! the revolving guests lol) we have a futon in our downstairs living room/ Daughter's playroom. It is also MUCH cooler down there.

If you know how to build a tree house and put in a toilet in our backyard...well guess what? you can live there too! Gas pipes, electricity wiring, and toilet drainage has already been installed to the backyard.

We have been renovating our home. So if you have the skill - then we want you! Right now we are renovating our backyard ...Putting in 2 gas fire pits (lines are in), and eventually a treehouse (as mentioned above) that has running water and a flushing toilet.

I travel a lot for work...and need HUGE help in organizing our home!

Our daughter also may need help with pickups and drop offs to her lessons and school. We are trying to teach her Polish and Indonesian - so if you speak any of those languages it is a HUGE plus! And if you can teach her singing, gymnastics, skateboarding, swimming, surfing, tae-kwondo ...another huge plus! Childcare ability is a bonus but not something we need....we are mainly looking for someone who has carpentry, electrical, and plumbing skills.

We also have an adorable baby boy who is always giggly and learning new things.

My parents live with us to help with child care, but the extra help is always welcome.

Specific Projects we could use help in:
- interior decorating of our office, daughter's room, our pool room
- landscaping our front and side yard. Would love to start a beautiful and organized herb garden in our side yard. We just installed sprinklers!
- painting some walls, hanging up paintings. We have a TON that need to go up! Maybe more shelves?
- really need help organizing (and tossing out junk) kitchen, dining area, daughter's room (need help with making a closet in there), daughter's play area, pool room, hubby's garage

Our guest bedroom can squeeze 4 adults TIGHTLY. Ideally would like to take 2 people. We don't want to commit to anything more than two weeks. IF everything works out...you guys like us...and we like you...we are more than happy to discuss a long term stay!

Groceries are on you, we provide a microwave for you to utilize. I am kind of a health nut and make my own Almond Milk, low carb bread, kefir milk etc...

There is an organic farm close to us which we get some produce from. In fact we heard about HelpX from that farm!

I will try to be better about responding to all your inquiries. Please be patient with me...and don't feel bad about harassing me lol. It's not you..it's me! I promise =)

....if we are taking in 2 people...at least one person needs to have the skill to do home renovations and build projects. We unfortunately do not have the time to teach someone :( we need someone who is very comfortable with power tools. Someone who can do carpentry, electrical and/or plumbing work :) the other person can assist in home maintenance, backyard, landscaping etc.

Thank you ??
