The Experience

Just moved to this house - only accessible by foot 30 min or 20 min boat on the lake Lagoa da Conceição. It needs improvements on the doors, windows, ground, garden, painting, building a deck. You can also help with cleaning and cooking. We can track around, go to the beach, watch movies, meditate, do yoga, have a beer or wine. I have 2 big and friendly dogs and the neighbourhood is absolutely safe and relaxed. Cheers!

Infelizmente a experiência não ocorreu, pois o anfitrião teve "imprevistos".
Cumpri minha carga horária da semana e mais um pouco (da qual foi acordada fazer em dobro para aproveitar melhor a folga e proteger o serviço da chuva) mas nesse dia depois do trabalho mais difícil se feito o mesmo disse que teria que viajar e cancelou o voluntariado.
Também informar que o mesmo não tem experiencia no serviço que está fazendo e nem a competência nem o tato de ensinar. A necessidade do anfitrião é de um profissional em carpintaria e não um ajudante para aprender.

Não usamos drogas aqui.

About the host

I moved by myself one month ago to my new house and I want to start a hostel here. It´s a nice house just accessible by 20 min boat or 30 min tracking (none cars or buses around). Boats leaves each hour from Lagoa da Conceição bridge (from 6am to 11pm - so its not a place for you with you like to go out often).
