    Beschreibung

    I own a little jungle retreat, home stay and spa in the nature of Langkawi island.

    I am very passionate about living partially off grid and sustainable living. That is why I chose my establishment right in the jungle. It is very secluded and there are always works to do to keep up the place. The retreat has only two rooms, an outdoor kitchen, a tree house, big space at the lawn and a day spa which only serve two people at a time.

    I love living in an outdoor concept. So my living room is actually under the bamboo tree with recycle table and chairs. The dining area is also made of wood and sit outside the rooms. My guests would sit or lay around on the open space, BBQ, singing under the stars. You can bring your books to read on the hammock under the trees.

    Use the open space to do yoga, Tai Chi or meditation under the sky. I am now also in the process of growing herbs, fruits and vegetables and farming chickens. It is my dream to turn this place into a little holistic sanctuary.

    As my establishment is small, I am basically doing a "one-man show" most of the times. I am the full time employee. I am doing all the cleaning, setting up beds, gardening, cooking, laundry, maintenance.

    I have four lovely dogs who are the main attraction to my animal loving guests. They too 'work' for me to keep the guests entertained.

    I am looking for workawayers who are responsible, independent and passionate about the work that I am doing to assist me, exchange knowledge and skills to assist me for MINIMUM A MONTH.

    Tree House. A newly built 8 feet x 8 feet small tree house with a 4 feet balcony on the rock hill over seeing greenery of the jungle. The height is 8 feet above the ground. It is breezy and constantly you can see birds, monkeys, squirrels running around. A mattress or two (if couple). A table fan, lights and mosquito net. A separate bathroom and toilet down the rock hill. You will need to be adventurous and be prepared to stay alone in the nature. I am not staying there all the times. There are snakes, scorpions, geckos, mosquitoes and other wild animals and bugs around.

    I have wifi but as the location is in the jungle, the signal is not so strong. For instance if you do a zoom meeting, there will be lagging and skyping occasionally turn to audio only, browsing, surfing, emailing is fine.
