  • Description


    I've just moved to a beautiful spot in the jungle, with a view looking out to sea. I'm in love with the place. It's only 7 minutes down the hill from the beach, and 20 from real night life action. I completely flat line chill here.

    I've always wanted to grow my own food and I now have a garden area to do that. I am following permaculture techniques that I am happy to share. Search 'Morag Gamble, No Dig Gardening' on Youtube for an idea of what we are doing.

    I am leaving for the UK for two months, at the end of May and want (ideally) a couple to come in and look after the creation of the garden, look after the chickens, possibly my dog. All very easy stuff as the property is large and has lots of land so the dog just has to be let out. Ideally you would come a week before I leave, stay upstairs (nice, but basic) for a week - we can discuss plans, then move into my place for the 2 months.

    I'm looking for enthusiasm and for people who are trustworthy, keen to get stuck into the project and who will give it some love. It's an amazing experience for the right people and it's not ridiculously hard work (see Youtube), so you can chill and enjoy the experience. I will have every step ready and explain. It's all very easy (when you know how).

    You will need to feed the chickens and collect the eggs (for your breakfast).

    The house itself is, well think New York loft in the jungle. It's all very open plan and a delight to live in, I am sooo happy here. I think you would be too. It has a fully fitted kitchen, bathroom and one bedroom. Pictures will follow once we have finished the decorating renovations.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are natives of Thailand for 25 years in total. We know where to go and what to see, what to eat and what to do. We're happy to pass on this experience.

    We also offer the experience of working with a start-up digital business in a foreign land. We've been nomads since 1995 and digital nomads since 1999, it's not a new thing :) Previous Workawayers have walked away from here knowing how to live and work on the road, a skill that will now be with them for life. Between the housemates we have run and sold between 20 and 30 businesses all over the world. This is currently working with the likes of Vodafone, Orange, FIFA, BBC and other major, global, brands. Working with us will give you an insight into how we have done this. As I write this I look out onto a view of the ocean, this is my working life and we have shown others how to do the same. This is a unique experience for those looking to travel and find their way/ themselves in the world.

  • Accommodation


    Garden job is in Cape Panwa.

    Generally, there are 3 of us here permanently. Both are very cool and peaceful people. Big into kite surfing and other water sports.

    Beaches are all around as we are on the Southern tip of one of the most beautiful islands in Thailand (albeit parts are tourist trodden now, the south still has charm and old style Thailand).

    Separate, very private, cabana style accommodation.

    Fiber internet.

    We like a party, but if you're bringing bar girls home each night then we'd politely boot you out.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Thailand is Thailand. We're in Cape Panwa, South Phuket. It's the number 1 holiday destination in Thailand for one main reason, it's truly beautiful. We've lived here for 3-6 years (there a 3 here who work for the business), so we can give you very good advice on what to do whilst here. It's a perfect introduction to Thailand.
