The Experience

5-8 hours a day depending on the day. We try to practice child lead and free range parenting approach and would hope to find someone comfortable and familiar with this. We are looking for someone who would be more than a nanny. Not someone to just watch that Jethro is safe and ok, but someone to engage with him, play with him, take him on excursions to the beach, mountain, neighbouring farms etc

I enjoyed this work experience so much, Alexi and his family are bloody legends and were so welcoming. They had extremely reasonable expectations with the tasks that we were given around the campsite, and were extremely helpful when I had any questions or was unsure about what I should do. The food that Louisa and Maddie cooked for us was always amazing too which is lovely bonus :D Thankyou for having me guys!

The work after the season is physical but a lot of fun and most days the 4.5 hours flew. We were given a lot of freedom and I never felt bad asking for help if something went wrong. Lunch was delicious every day and while the area is very quite in the off season we usually found something to do in the afternoon or evening. On days off we had the chance to go on day trips with the other volunteers which were a lot of fun. I loved spending time with the family listening to some mad stories and sharing laughs. Anyone with a sense of humour will love it here! Thank you to Maddie and her family!

Absolutely stupendous time. Great location and great hosts. I heard a number of great stories from Alexi and George and had the privilege to meet some of the local characters. The work is very liberating, you are given a job with the trust that you'll get it done without anyone looking over your shoulder. Once the work is over you have the freedom to do whatever you want in the local area. I loved to run around the abandoned buildings and bunkers in the area. Kind and Interesting people in a beautiful beach and mountain side area. You can't go wrong.

I had a great time on the camping property! I got a very warm welcome by Alexi and his family and felt like a part of the group from day one. The life together was very relaxed and casual, I could decide by myself how much I want to be part of social gatherings without feeling pressure to participate in everything. Work was very hands-on and sometimes a little improvised, working hours were respected. Breakfast and lunch was provided, always freshly cooked and very delicious. The island itself is very quiet in off-season, great for a relaxed time. Thank you for the very nice experience!

Jelena: This was my first volunteer and I had the most amazing experience! I learned many new skills (thank you Louisa💜) and had so much fun working along side other volunteers. I felt like being a part of the family and made friends for life!

Thank you to you both for being here with us, Thank you Diego for the exotic meals you provided for all as well as helping in the kitchen with the main menu. Jelena, bless you for your balanced and comitted presence at work. It was great to have an adult couple as part of our team instead of the typical gap year students. Hope you having a great time with the new venture , please keep in touch. George
