Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
Your job will be to live here, accompany the owner of the house, and be available and keep the house occupied and the dog well taken care of. You will be expected to be here every day and sleep here every night. Some light cleaning involved. If you want to be a volunteer here, you will be living with the owner of the former PH Hostel in the big house that WAS the original hostel. There will not be other guests here. But it will still be fun and not a lot of work. If the owner leaves you will be responsible to supervise twice a month professional cleaning and gardeners. Non booze non drugs non smoking house. References required. Preference given to over 30 years old. Must speak some conversational Spanish.
This is is the physical site where the famous Purple House Hostel in David City WAS located. It has actual hostel has moved to a new location in David (La Pradera, cerca al bar La Brujita). We don't know if they are looking for volunteers.
Logan was a volunteer who stayed here for a month. All he did, every day for that entire time was to watch TV in our living room, use his computer to practice Portuguese for his upcoming trip to Brazil, and get up for an occasional cigarette and bathroom break. His only ventures out of the hostel were to go to the Supermarket for 15 minutes and to the gym for 30 minutes each day. That’s it. But that's all he wanted to do! He had no interest in exploring anything outside of the hostel, sometimes we had to beg him to stay out for more than an hour, he just wanted to keep coming back to our couch. That made him the perfect volunteer to leave behind so we could do the simple things to keep our sanity like walk the dog, go to the supermarket, or see a movie. If you are this type of person, with no interest (or money) to leave the hostel, then consider this volunteer position. Good English and Spanish necessary.
Even though the hostel is closed, we still have cleaning and maintenance projects to do. If you like to clean, this is the position for you.
THE RENT-A-HUSBAND (OR WIFE)
If in your real life you are an electrician, plumber, painter, carpenter, air-conditioner maintenance person, (are you getting the idea?) then we might have some work for you.

(Not for the Purple House website, for a different project we are working on)
THE HEBREW SPEAKER
We are currently looking for a native Hebrew speaker to help the owner learn the language. Pretty much 1-2 hours a day of formal “class” and then the rest of the time just offering help in speaking in natural situations while living in the hostel.
THE YOGA INSTRUCTOR or PHYSICAL THERAPIST or MASSAGE THERAPIST
Sometimes we look for volunteers who can offer some simple basic yoga instruction and/or massage to the owner of the hostel, specifically to help out with stretching exercises for some problematic tendonitis.
Specifics to be discussed depending on the agreement.
We can send you more pictures of the house, things to do in the area and in the neighborhood. Non-drinkers and non-smokers. Some Spanish is necessary.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Very flexible schedule.
