Sails On Kos

Hello, my name is Alexi, and with my wife Madeleine, father George, mother-in-law Louisa and our two young sons we run a glamping resort on the island of Kos. To start we would like to express that not only is this our business and income, it is also our community, passion and home where we believe you will have an unforgettable experience.
We aim to provide an inclusive community for people to enjoy our site, the island and the culture of Greece. We absolutely love having volunteers and staff from all around the world work and live alongside us to help run our eco village resort, contribute to guests having an amazing experience, and to maintain and love our property and business in a way that nourishes everyone involved. As a volunteer we welcome you into our home as a personal guest, and many of our volunteers return on following years. We have volunteers from all over the world come to stay with us and in the height of the season you might be living alongside 20 other people at any time, so we have a real community spirit.

We have a mixed team of staff, from the village we live in to all around the world, Yemen, UK to Canada and Australia. We try to bring our staff into our family and work as a large family team

Learning & Fun




Had an amazing time at Sails on Kos! The family that runs the place are super cool and some of the nicest people I’ve met. Dinner everyday is really good, and the work is as described and very straightforward. They will give you a job depending on what your strengths are which is great! Anyone looking to get out in nature and spend time with some really cool people I definitely recommend this spot!

Being able to live on Kos Island and working with the family was an amazing experience , I learned a lot of different skills and made amazing friends ! And also the food was very good! I will for sure keep in touch and comeback sometime to visit!

During my stay they weren’t open, so it was very quite and there weren’t any tourists yet which I really enjoyed. We started out with four volunteers and by the end of my stay there were around ten. All of them were very nice. The family was amazing and I felt very safe. Their sense of humour is also great. The food was delicious and the work hours were always respected. The kids are super cute and fun to play with/look after. I already want to come back :)

It has been a nice experience volunteering here, work hours as agreed & nice people. The place is quite remote, but close to the beach. Reception work was a little quiet due to the end of the season but still nice.
