I've had a wonderful time walking the donkeys with Jana and getting to meet all the beautiful animals she has. Did some gardening as well, and cleaning, as the kitchen and cat area need to be cleaned regularly. The working hours were respected as stated beforehand, and on my free days I'd hike around Hvar or go downtown to the old port. It's a beautiful island to visit, definitely recommend going there in the spring or early autumn, when it's not so full of tourists. This is paradise for animal and nature lovers!
Oh and the WiFi was strong enough for video-calls, so that's a big plus!

Our stay here was truly wonderful. The island is beautiful and Jana and all the animals will make your stay unforgettable. The working hours are always respected and you are really flexible. Also the work is fairly easy and will not exhaust you at all. Probably one of the best options if you are looking for a peaceful place with lots of cute animals and incredible scenery and views.

My experience at Jana's place was really amazing. Her home and the surrounding nature was stunning and I'm really grateful for my stay there. The tasks were really easy to do and you have lots of free time to explore the island. It was great living together with her animals and we could spend lots of time with them together like going on walks with the donkeys and Toto or caring for the cats. I had such a great time with all of them and absolutely recommend this place for everybody who wants to live and work at a beautiful place together with lots of animals!

This was my first experience and I couldn't have chosen a better place to start. The work starts early in the morning but is not difficult. After helping Jana with the donkey's, I went home to clean the cat area. I spent countless hours in front of the fireplace with cats. They are really sweet and cuddly. I miss them a lot. For the entire duration of my experience I always slept with some of them :)
During the winter it is actually very cold, so I recommend bringing warm clothes even for staying indoors. I really thank Jana for the hospitality, I hope to meet you again! <3
