Cheryl is a fabulous host, truly a joy to volunteer for! She went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was comfortable and that we had plenty of time to explore Seattle. Her support made it very easy to organize and achieve our responsibilities as volunteers; our tasks were thoroughly documented, and Cheryl was extremely responsive when we had questions or concerns. We adore the family dogs and the warm space they've cultivated in the city! We would do this experience again in a heartbeat :)

This was a great opportunity for someone who was trying Worldpackers for the first time like I was. The hours are limited, the work isn't too hard and the family is super sweet. Thank you Cheryl for a wonderful stay!

Thanks, Romina. Best of luck on your future travel and education plans. :)



I spent 3 and a half months with the family and it was very nice! I got there in the midst of the pandemic, so I didn't have many places to go, but I traveled with the family 2 times. We went to 2 other states, it was amazing be able to meet them and spend that time with the kids and family. It was also great to meet and spend time with the dogs. My goal going there was to practice English and it has improved a lot. Seattle is a wonderful city and the accommodation at the house is very comfortable. Cheryl, Chris, kids and dogs, I am so grateful! It was an incredible experience.
