What I can say from my experience is that I made a second family, you really feel a member of them. Working with the cleaning of Cabains is not difficult, from to execute even for those who do not experience you like me, even more with the best teachers Georgia and Lauren, the ride with Hamish and Malky is the fun of the day, Chris a very special guy and a great cook Scottish and Irene simply fantastic, patient, gentle and a great cook. What I can say is that I recommend and intend to return soon to review everyone and live special moments that I lived there.

This was my first experience using WorldPackers and it was amazing! Irene is great, always cooking nice dinners and worried about if we had enough food. Chris was really nice too. The dogs walk is the best part of the experience for sure! I cried saying goodbye to them, they're gonna be your best friend if you're the only volunteer. The only thing that the appliers should know is that you walk the dogs every day, even in your day offs, but this is not a big problem because as I said it's so good to be with them. Thank you Irene, Georgia, Chris… hope to see you again sometime.

My first volunteering and it was a great experience, I really felt very good, I would have loved to speak more English and communicate better. Irene is a great hostess, I felt very comfortable at home, she is very kind and was very patient with me, the work is not heavy at all, the schedules are met and also the days off. Malky and Hemish the dogs are lovely. The place is fantastic, the lake, the mountains seem like a place from stories. Dalavich people are very friendly. I want to thank Irene, Chris, Georgia for this great experience and a hug to Iona, my little teacher.

This was my first volunteering experience. Irene is like a grandmother, she has a big heart and always makes us feel at ease. The work is not difficult, but it has to be dedicated. My favorite part was walking the dogs, Malk and Himish, I will miss them so much. I loved my stay, it was an amazing month, Georgia and Cris are very friendly. Hope to be back soon. I wish you all the best! It was a pleasure to be part of the team.

I don't even know what to say, what a wonderful place, I had a great long time there and I can say it's my second home now. Everyone so welcoming and lovely, I made good friends. The job isn't hard, just can't say that about the bunk beds 😂. Thank you Irene, Georgia, and Chris for everything, I'll miss u all mainly Hamish and Malk 🥰. I'm certainly coming back, hopefully very soon. I wish you all the bests, thank you ☺️
