Hello there!

We are Sunny ( originally from China) and Jeff (relocated from New York) and we now live in a small town in Oklahoma called Olustee of about 500 people. Nearby is a city called Altus with 19,000 people, stores, bars, restaurants and entertainment. You are invited to our place, either just to visit or to stay and help out. We have 4 bedrooms for travelers and helpers in our guest house available for you (can accommodate up to 10 people) and there is also a game room, swimming pool (in the summer) and basketball/volleyball court on the property. We would like help with cleaning of guest rooms, cooking, painting of walls and murals, some light construction work (very simple, you don't need to know anything), fixing bicycles for the neighborhood kids as well as maintaining the pool (in the summer). We have been doing this for about 17 years now and had guests from all over the world stay with us. We can show you around this part of Oklahoma and you are welcome to explore the area by yourself as well. Beautiful (hiking) destinations close by are for example Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refugee, Quartz Mountain State Park or Copper Breaks State Park in Texas. We have tents available if you want to go camping overnight in one of these beautiful spots.
If you don't have a car to come to Olustee we are happy to pick you up from places nearby (e.g. Lawton airport). We also host students during their school breaks from university , so depending on how long you would wanna stay with us that could possibly be arranged as well. If you have any dietary requests, we are happy to accommodate.
Come and see the heartland of America!

Here's a video one of our helpers made of our place :

We enjoy having people around, especially international ones where we can get to know different cultures. You will be treated as a friend, if not as family - you are welcome to celebrate holidays such as Thanksgiving or Christmas with us.

It was a good experience. I met a beautiful people and I learn so fast the lenguage.
Maybe a little boring, we stay in a small village and all the afternons you have a lot of free hours.
I think if someone like painting, writing... and search a place to disconnect is a good option.
The tasks are simple: to reform Jeff's properties like painting, cleaning,... Is not a hard work.

The best thing about being here is the incredible people around you.

If it's your first experience, I have no doubt that it's the best place to start.
Jeff gives you an incredible confidence so that you are comfortable in that place.
I am very grateful to have met such amazing people and I will never forget all the people I have met there. I am leaving happy knowing that I have formed a beautiful family.
Both Jeff and Sunny are there for whatever you need. And I will definitely be back soon.

We read the reviews ,the profile and what this place could offer us, what was our surprise when we realized that this place does not look like what we had read.
There are many things that pose a problem for us, for example regarding the grocery: Jeff gave us 100 dollars for us to go to the grocery store for the week; there were 7 of us (which means 14 dollars per person ) which didn't keep us going through the week. For the activities we actually had a car at our disposal, but we could only use it to go to altus, only once a day and we had paid for the gas.1/2

Another thing that is not written in the profile ,you have to pay for the washing machine.
For the work there on the other hand I rather agree with what has been said, the work is rather easy and lasts 3 to 4 hours,however Jeff can sometimes be rude ,do not hesitate to tell him when he does that,he accepts criticism you just need to talk a little for him to realize certain things.
Fortunately the volunteers we were with were incredible and fun, we are glad to have met them !
We can't lie about that, this place allows you to meet great people. 2/2

I spend a really good time at Jeff's place. It was my first time in USA and it couldnt have been better. He was always concerned that we could have fun and not get bored here. I met wonderful people and I had so much fun with all of them. The tasks are very easy. We were fixing a house, so almost every day we did something diferent. Plumbing, electricity, gardering, etc. But I mostly did painting. Jeff always provided us all the food that we need. Usually one day per week we worked in Altus, and the rest of the week we worked in the town, Olustee. I have many photos of Olustee in my profile!
