Area: England*** I AM NOT HOSTING AT THE MOMENT Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to read about us. I am looking for a FEMALE, to come and join my daughter and I in south Manchester and help with light housekeeping tasks: cooking, washing dishes, hoovering etc. and with some childcare tasks too. My daughter is almost 15 months old now and is a very lively, active little girl so I hope to find someone with lots of enthusiasm to talk to her and play wih her. She attends nursery 4 days a week so I can work and study ( I have recently returned to university to continue training in social work) so the workawayer would not be expected to spend several hours a day with my daughter. We live in a part of Manchester that is very popular with students and has a thriving Couchsurfing community with lots of meetings in local bars etc. So, you would have lots of freetime during the day (on weekdays) to explore the area. I am quite flexible. We will be able to spend more time together at weekends. There is a lovely, large park 5 minutes walk away from our home with a lake, wildlife and a children's play area. We are a fun loving family, enjoy having people visit, like to go out for walks in the park, go for coffee/ lunch in nice places :), play music / watch movies at home and do many other activities. Manchester is a great city, with lots of places to visit and explore in your free time. I don't have a car, but live 15 minutes from the city centre and close to a frequent bus service.
Area: Concordia is 5 mins drive from Scarborough the capital of Tobago.I am a single man 46 years old and I like nature I live in a little wooden house with a loft on an acre of tropical land. I am a carpenter/craftsman, builder, iron welder and small organic gardener. I also play a little flute and guitar. I also like yoga, hiking and swimming as the beaches are not too far away. Providing food is sometimes a little tough for me so I am asking volunteers if they can come with a little if possible. Working hours could always be adjusted.
Area: Beragala HaputaleI own and operate a 15 acre estate in the Uva Province of Sri Lanka. The land is located on Colombo / Wellawaya main road 185 KMs away from Colombo in the village of Nikapotha / Beragala. Beragala is a small town famous for it’s natural beauty and scenery. When we bought the land in 2009, it was neglected with about 2 acres of Black Pepper. We have been working towards turning this beautifully located jungle land to a more habitable exclusive holiday location without disturbing it’s character. We have introduced Tea and a small scale Dairy with a daily production of about 70 liters of milk. The dairy helps us maintain the estate as grass is supplied within and the waste is utilised as fertiliser for the enrichment of soil. The jungle is still intact. We have been investing heavily to develop infrastructure and in the process, built adequate and basic facilities essential for comfortable accommodation. Additional features include use of renewable energy in the form of Bio-gas. We plan to introduce Solar power in order to reduce cost of Electricity. We work closely with local Government Agencies for help and guidance. We welcome guests from all countries but we kindly request that you stay with us for a minimum of 7 days so that we have the time to get to know you and make your stay a great experience for you and for us. This will enable you to visit other tourist locations in the province and also make your stay mutually beneficial. You will have space for a calm and comfortable retreat with breathe-taking views of sunset and sunrise. The jungle is full of birds with a few resident bird species. Other activities recommended – Hiking & Trekking Nature Trails and countryside walking Photography and Filming Bird Watching Beragala is centrally located with easy access to many well known tourist hot spots in Sri Lanka. A few locations are given below for your guidance. Transport could be arranged via a 3rd party service provider. To Haputale and Railway station – 5 minutes To Diyatalawa – 20 Minutes To Bandarawela – 20 minutes To Ella – 30 minutes To Horton Plains – 45 Minutes To Udawalawe National Park – 1 ½ hours To Arugambay Beach – 2 ½ hours To Yala National Park Entrance – 2 hours
