Come join us on the beautiful Island Lopud Croatia! We are a family that runs a small guest house, 50 meters from a sandy beach and near cafes, restaurants and market place. Lopud is a great place for nature lovers, yet near historic town of Dubrovnik. Lush nature, clear blue skies, stars, pristine sea, perfect for anyone looking for a escape from city life. Lopud is a tiny island with abut 80 year round inhabitants. You will not need a car, it is all within walking distance and Dubrovnik is one hour away by local ferry which goes 4 times per day. You will meet travelers from all around the world.
Lopud is a quiet place mainly for self reflection and for nature lovers. In the summer Lopud is very lively during day time, while nights are very quiet.

You will have a chance to enjoy one of the most beautiful islands in Croatia, as well as explore the city of Dubrovnik and its surroundings, enjoy the beaches, people, culture, and meet many wonderful people that come to us year after year. You will have us as a valuable source of information and support on the island.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
We need help with cleaning each day, ideally a person who has an eye for detail and with quick detailed cleaning skills.
There is cleaning each day, and sometimes ironing/laundry, bringing goods from ferry.
Once here, we ask that it is workaway only, if you choose to find paid work elsewhere without work permit, we will not be able to host you any longer due to liability reasons.
In order to get paid please organize own work permits and all necessary paperwork in Croatia, and please get own health insurance prior to arrival and we will be happy to pay the minimum wage requirement for all hours worked. Sorry, we cannot do this for you, you will need to get informed about Croatian laws and permits in Dubrovnik or at a Croatian Embassy so that we can legally pay you.
Accommodation is mostly a private room, and sometimes shared with 2 persons max in a room. There is one kitchen which is shared with other helpers.
Sorry we cannot provide a computer or a laptop but we do have wifi.
We will provide basic foods(rice, pasta, tomato sauce, polenta, barley, soups, eggs, toast...) for breakfast and lunch as you will have access to a full kitchen where you can cook.
Tap water is drinkable, if you prefer the taste of bottled water you will need to buy it at the market as well.
Please bring with you your favorite recipe so you can introduce us to your cousine at least once per week.
For lunch we cook local foods (which can involve some meat sometimes) which you will be invited to try, sometimes we cook and sometimes you. If you have special dietary needs please buy at the store next to the ferry in Dubrovnik as there is a much bigger variety than on Lopud Island and bring with you. If you are vegetarian, we encourage you to buy veg/fruits in Dubrovnik as Lopud has a market which is a bit more expensive.
You can easily move around without a car, there are no cars on Lopud island and the ferry is 5 min walk from the house, so you can visit Dubrovnik and other islands for about 5 Euros. House is the center so you have everything nearby, and the nature trail actually starts in our street. Hikes are beautiful, we have a bike you can borrow, and there are kayaks to rent 5 min away.
