Program Details

You are applying to help us with gardening in front of the ocean, art with painting or decorating our rooms and restaurant area or with maintenance & handyman work, while enjoying an amazing view to the ocean.
We also offer an "all-inclusive stay" if you prefer.


Activities & Shift

The shifts and activities are depending on your help, skills and hobbies. We will agree to certain working hours which will be fine for both of us as you want to enjoy your free time efficiency as well.

- Gardening will be more in the afternoon and at night. Sometimes early in the morning if necessary. You should have experience in working with plants and have a green thump.
- If you like to help with painting or decoration it's important that you are skilled in it because we need a professional hand and don't have time to explain every detail in our high season when it's busy.
- The same if you like to help with maintenance & handyman work. It's important that you are skilled and experienced in it. Our main basic team is not so skilled in it and we need help of a "professional" handyman. ;)


Rules

For us it's important that you like what you are applying for and that you are skilled in it.
It's not necessary that you are a vegetarian or vegan but please be open about this life-style and respect while living with us.

We also offer an "all-inclusive stay" if you prefer. Please let us know if you contact us.
