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

Foi incrível trabalhar no empreendimento do Alexi e família. Eles tem jeito acolhedor e isso passa para toda a equipe, de voluntários e refugiados que trabalham com eles. Uma experiência inesquecível !!!

Alright I'll try to explain this SUPER cool volunteering in few words:
The glamping is located in the beautiful island of Kos. Couldn't be more perfect.
About the hosts, those are the coolest people I've ever seen. They all excel as family, hosts, friends and bosses.
About the tasks: could be challenging but these guys are putting their best and they work as much as any of the staff, so here we are all pulling in the same direction to make the place run smoothly.
In exchange for 5 hours, you'll enjoy a paradisiac Greek island, delicious food every day, make new friends and have fun!

My stay at Sails on Kos was more than I could ever hope it would be. I stayed during the month of February which was very nice because 1) the resort was not yet open and 2) I was the only volunteer. Right away I felt I was a part of the family and felt taken care of, and cared for. I was always made the most amazing breakfast and lunch, and allowed to help myself to whatever I wanted for dinner. Everyone was always very flexible with allowing me to choose what I wanted to do for the day whether it be childcare, cleaning, repair jobs, etc, and after I completed my 5 hours I free toexplore/relax

I enjoyed this work experience so much, Alexi and his family are bloody legends and were so welcoming. They had extremely reasonable expectations with the tasks that we were given around the campsite, and were extremely helpful when I had any questions or was unsure about what I should do. The food that Louisa and Maddie cooked for us was always amazing too which is lovely bonus :D

Thankyou for having me guys!

The work after the season is physical but a lot of fun and most days the 4.5 hours flew. We were given a lot of freedom and I never felt bad asking for help if something went wrong.
Lunch was delicious every day and while the area is very quite in the off season we usually found something to do in the afternoon or evening. On days off we had the chance to go on day trips with the other volunteers which were a lot of fun.
I loved spending time with the family listening to some mad stories and sharing laughs. Anyone with a sense of humour will love it here!
Thank you to Maddie and her family!
