Program Details

There are two houses on this property located 25 min by foot from the historic center. I rent the front house as a temp guest house by the room or the whole house. I live in the back house. I would like the property to be more sustainable and am slowly incorporating ecological principles (organic garden and fruit trees, worm bin, compost, solar showers, recycled wood). This position is to focus on cleaning the properties. I'm looking for someone who enjoys making things shine!


Activities & Shift

Work is 6 hours a day, with two days off. I expect volunteers to be hard workers and independent and to ask many questions.This is not a pousada or hostel so there are not usually lots of people around. If there is no cleaning to do other tasks may be included such as shopping, yard work, washing and walking the dog.


Rules

We offer either camping or a bed in the common area (depending on availability), and some basics for cooking (rice, beans, oil, salt, sugar, coffee). I do not provide food but we can cook together when it is convenient for everyone. I provide bikes for your use whenever possible (when not used by guests). They are your responsibility (upkeep). If you lose the keys or the bike, you will be responsible for repair or replacement. I expect you to keep the house clean and your room at all times and to respect any guests.
We have a dog and a cat, so if you are allergic or don't like animals, this is not the place for you. Taking the dog for a walk daily and is greatly loved by him.
