Relaxing stay in informal setting at Bed & Breakfast in the Tigre Delta
We are a mixed intercultural couple. Carolina is from Argentina and works as an accountant and system consultant. she is working from home during the day from monday to friday . Stef is A dutch guy who studied cultural sciences and traveled a lot. He is at home most of the time but now starting to study in the city, so we need people to help and take our place when we are not at home. We both speak fluently English and Spanish.
The project is a fairly new Bed breakfast in the Tigre Delta. We opened July 2011.
What we need is help both inside and outside the house: with preparing the food, cooking, baking, setting breakfast, doing dishes, cleaning, changing sheets, laundry, bathrooms . Or whatever else you think that needs to be done.
At the garden to cut the lawn, mind the crops (planting, watering, harvesting) and some small construction and repair works.
Own initiative is needed, we don´t command people, we provide a schedule to organize yourself but we prefer you feel comfortable organizing your routine. Be creative and a self starter. It is a quiet place most of the time. the paying visitors mostly come during the weekends.
We prefer stays of about a 15 days at least, longer stays are possible and welcomed If we get along very well, there are no other volunteers coming and both enjoy it.
We have WIFI Internet free. There are kayaks to use, and we have many books, most in spanish, but also in english and french.
We try to be most sustainable possible, so we appreciate you take care do not waste water, recycling as much as possible and take care of consuming the food on time. Some people has nothing to eat,and we are lucky to have so dont put in the bin fruits than can be recovered (for doing jams by example).
Last minute request also welcome. Anybody with the right spirit and mindset is welcome.
