Program Details

In our guesthouse we enjoy people (often young couples from the US) visiting from all over the world. This is a wonderful exchange and we appreciate helpers that can give their best, are motivated, organized, a little bit stylish and also enjoy what they are doing and have some fun and good exchanges at the same time.

We enjoy sharing ideas and being a contribution to each other in some way. We are open from may to september and looking for 1-2 helpers to help us throughout the summer season, on a longer basis than usual. If you can commit 2-3 months (or longer), we would love to hear from you. If you are looking for a shorter position, unfortunately we cannot accommodate you in summer but maybe there are other possibilities for you.

If you would like to join us out of season when the guesthouse is only a private home to help us with some work around the house you are also welcome.


Activities & Shift

We are always interested in peoples with a nice and fine attitude who would like to help with the following :-)

Everything around the guests: to welcome them, answers questions about the surroundings and restaurants, to help preparing the breakfast for them, to bring towels to the pool and sometimes to organize a barbecue in the evening, .....

Gardening: planting, raking up leaves, keeping tidy.
Watering the garden and pot plants three times a week.

General housework: cleaning windows, vacuuming, hanging out washing, ironing, cleaning up rooms (normally only the small daily cleanups for the big housekeeping we have a homemade)

Take care and play with the dogs :-)

We will try to take our meals together and make an exchange by preparing them. So cooking sometimes a meal and of course clearing up the kitchen afterward.
