Guesthouse by the beach in a UNESCO geo-park.

The Exchange

During the busy summer season we mainly need help with housekeeping at our 2 small guesthouses and 2 rental cottages. Although we are a casual accommodation we aim to maintain a high standard of cleanliness and will need people who can pay attention to small details. From July we will be adding a cafe / chill-out space / reception area with a large deck. We need ideas and experienced people to get it up and running.

Must have a Working Holiday or other Work or Student Visa if not a resident of japan. We expect staff and volunteers to be mature, responsible, punctual, and respectful towards guests and other staff and volunteers. Even though it is a volunteer position we need people who will take the job seriously and take pride in their work. We also hope people will make the most of their time off by exploring the area and enjoying the beach.
