Programa detallado

I live in the hills over the city of Skopje, walking distance to everything, but in a quiet residential neighborhood. All the city has to offer is withing your reach, and the rest of the country can be easily explored by bus. Right up the street begins a forest and you can hike to the Millennium Cross, a 12th Century monastery, and views of the whole valley.

A few years ago I started a small hostel/guesthouse on the ground floor of the house - by small I mean 3 bedrooms and total of 10 beds. I have since added a small apartment in the center to our offering. So, I need help with running my mini-hostel - cleaning, changing sheets, reception, work with guests... At times I need to go out of town and leave you to manage things, housesit - let me know if that is something you can handle.


Actividades & Turnos

This Fall/Winter 2018/2019 I will need help with running the hostel/guesthouse - cleaning, laundry, gardening, receiving guests... I may go out of town, so interested in people who want to stay and hostel/housesit. Moreover, I want to begin work on restoring a mural that got a bit damaged by moisture, with paint or by incorporating tile mosaic in it, so anyone interested in engaging in some painting or mosaic. Other tasks as things come up...

I usually need help with tasks in the yard and some other plots of land I manage (picking fruits, cleaning leaves, clearing plants, weeding, composting), and house maintenance/repairs (cleaning, painting, organizing, small repairs, carpentry, electrical work for people with that skill, laying tiles) depending on your skills. I like art on the walls and furniture, and in the garden, so that is something for an artist.


Reglas

For short term stays in my house the guest would have a bed in the dorm of 4 or possibly a modest private room if the place is not busy, occasional meals, and access to a small kitchen. I live upstairs in separate quarters. I do not have time to cook every day, and definitely not three meals a day, so you would be often on your own - I may provide some basic food supplies, but please plan to cover most of your meals on your own. If meals are provided, more work is requested. You will share bathroom with other guests. I have a WIFI and can offer an older computer to use if you do not have your own. You enjoy relative privacy freedom with your time in return for a bit of help with the yard and house maintenance/repairs, and/or non-profit help as described above. I would not expect more that effective 3-4 hours a day, depending on schedule.
