The Exchange

The work itself is cleaning, making beds, mopping floors. We also sometimes need help with gardening, painting and carpentering. Working hours per day are 4h. So you will have enough time for yourself. In return, we offer free accommodation, laundry, and sometimes booze. The Villa is beautiful, has a large fully equipped kitchen, lots of hammocks and spacious rooms. We are close to surfing and swimming beaches (18 min).
