Area: Finland - Southern Savo: KangasniemiThe house is in Finland 14 km from the next town. I am looking for People who would like to come help with getting the place fixed up. The buildings date in part to the 19th century. There is no electricity nor running water. For a true Finland Country house experience, it can't get better. There are 2 kayaks and 2 rowboats. You can relax by exploring the lake and wildlife. Or go berry picking in the forest. Due to the remoteness of the house, tourist attractions are far and few. This is a great place to disconnect from your devices. This is a summer only location and I am the one who cooks and fixes things up as well. Sometimes a friend from abroad joins in.

Area: Ao Nam Mao, KrabiHey volunteers! I am Junko (Thai guy) and I am looking for some extra hands in my bungalows resort: I am located in Ao Nam Mao on a secluded golden sand beach between Krabi Town and Ao Nang (4km from Ao Nang and 13km from Krabi Town). Here you can enjoy the peace and nature. Bungalows on the beach, without disturbance from the noise. A place to rest, not touristy, as you would imagine to be a peaceful time on a private beach. There are only a few places in Thailand like this. The bungalows are simple but cozy with comfy beds, hot water and front porches. Those nearest to the beach have sea views through wide windows so you can wake up to the sight of lapping waves. There is a restaurant, beach terrace and a community pavilion. I have own WIFI and it is very good signal. You can use it without any restriction. Several lounge chairs and swings are set up along the sand as well. I just take over this property from the previous owner and run this friend business that’s why I need volunteers to different kinds of works (landscaping, gardening, bar tending, cleaning ect…) during high and also low season. We will take care of you during your stay so JOIN US!
Area: Rheinland-PfalzWe have about 30 alpacas, 2 dogs, numerous cats. Animals are part of our lives and so is their hair :) So if you are allergic to cats or dogs, or even dust and hay, you should consider a different place to stay. There is no public transportation, but usually there are lots of young people here, so you should not be bored. The area is great for hiking and cycling. The Rhine River, famous for its old castles and ruins is not too far away and we would love to take you there. If you consider to stay with us, you should be able to stay for 2 weeks minimum. Exceptions are possible sometimes. You should be over 20, physically fit and don't mind physical work. One last thing: We love dogs, however, it will not be possible that you bring your own dog, since one of our dogs will not tolerate other dogs in our house, sorry!
Area: OregonHello, Our home is located in the mountains on a river 4 miles from the largest lake in Oregon. Last summer we transformed our garage into an art/dance studio. This experience was wonderful working with the workaway program and the people who joined us. This April 2014 we are looking for carpenters, drywall and landscapers to help finish the art studio and build natural tent platforms using logs from the forest. Starting April through June we need help. We are located 2 hours from Portland Oregon and 1 hour from our state capital Salem. I do commute to Portland weekly so you can have transportation to and from the city to dine out or enjoy theater or a movie. I am asking for 20 hours of work a week in exchange for a room and board. We also could use help in creating some elevated garden beds, decks and paths to the river.
