Area: Ansteys Beach, Bluff, Durban, Kwazulu Natal, South AfricaHello from sunny South Africa! We are a happy, easygoing surfing family who have owned and run our backpackers hostel for the past 14 years. This is a friendly, happy place with a great cosmopolitan vibe. We cater for backpackers, holiday makers and business people, which makes for a great and interesting mix of people! Our place is situated on the main beach on the Bluff, a suburb about 15 minutes drive from the Durban City Centre. The beach is a quick 30 metres from our front door :) We offer surf lessons and reasonably priced shuttles, there is a small surf shop as well as a fantastic little on-site cafe/coffee shop run by our daughter, which serves great filter coffee, breakfasts and delicious home baked treats. We are looking for someone who is willing to stay for 3 months or more and who would work about 25 hours per week. While it is a happy and relaxed place, it does get pretty busy at times, especially during peak seasons and we would require someone who is a friendly, people's person, hands-on, proactive and able to deal with difficult guests from time to time. This is not just a backpackers hostel as we have self catering apartments and we do get a lot of South African holiday makers that stay here, especially over weekends and during school holidays - that is when it gets really busy. We have systems in place that we are strict about following to ensure the smooth running of things at our hostel.
Area: Ariège, Midi PyréneesCome and make the most of all that the mountains and the natural unspoilt environment have to offer! We are really fortunate to have fantastic volunteers who are not only hard-working, but also interesting and fun to be with. At the moment we are COMPLETELY FULL for the rest of the 2014 season. If you are thinking about spending time with us next year, we will be recruiting for 2015 from early in the New Year. We will be looking for people with specific skills and interests in dry stone wall re-building, general building, plumbing and tiling, outdoor maintenance, use of chain saw, brush cutter and strimmer, log splitting, wood stacking, gardening. Watch this space for more details! We, your hosts, Karen and Matthew, are an English couple in our 50's. We have lived here for the past ten years, but have recently moved from a tiny village to an old stone house higher up the valley. The setting is very peaceful, with access by footpath only. We are enjoying the challenge of restoring the land around our new property. It is currently overgrown and the former terraced vegetable gardens and stone barns are in need of restoration.
Area: ScotlandOn the remote west side of Shetland you can find spectacular scenery, peace and the ideal refuge for the escapist. We have a small guesthouse, sleeps up to 14 guests. I run the house by myself with some help. I am happy to answer all your questions you will have.
Area: Kyoto-fuWe are a Japanese / English family of 5 who have very recently returned to Japan to run a traditional guesthouse and set up projects and residentials around food, sustainability, music and theatre. Ours is a beautiful old kayabuki (traditional thatched) house, with two iori (indoor charcoal fires for cooking) and a kamado (special wood burning oven with a metal pot to cook rice). Come and experience Japanese life from days gone by. The guesthouse is located in Kanbayashi on the outskirts of Ayabe city, it is a very rural area in the mountains. Kanbayashi is known for viewing fireflies in June. Behind the guest-house there are walks up the mountain and small water falls that we have yet to discover. There is also an onsen nearby with a rotenboro (outdoor bath) with lovely views over the mountains (probably could walk there in 30mins).
