    Meet tourists from all over the world. Maybe share a beer in the weekends :)

    Also, make use of free time to chat with the guests who check in (positive chat only, please, but Trump bashing is allowed :) share experiences and foster friendships. Yes? :)

    General help around the house, especially cleaning, is a must for all volunteers. From raking the garden in the morning, cleaning rooms after guest checkouts, helping enter tourist data in register, computer, etc. Our guesthouse caters to International and domestic travelers and thus, there's always cleaning, maintenance work needed at home- from art work in the themed rooms to painting of walls, carpentry work, etc.

    The owner is in the process of writing a historical novel, in English, and so needs volunteers who have completed creative writing courses who can help proofread and edit. Those familiar with and are experienced in the use of grammar, tense, style, passive voice, point of view, show don't tell techniques and other writing tools are welcome. Qualified proofreaders who have completed relevant university courses only need apply for proof reading or editing posts. They can , if they so wish opt to use their 5 hours for this duty alone.

    We have an array of pets including a horse. Ria, our 5 year old horse, needs to be broken and the owner needs help in learning to ride. Again, only experts in the field are requested to volunteer.

    Owner also has 20 month old baby. Bewarned, both the baby and pets may vie for your attention, and affection:)

    Prefer volunteers to start early and finish early, so they can have time off for the rest of the day. Our volunteers are encouraged to interact with inhouse guests - in a polite and respectful manner.

    While most of our Workawayers have extended their stay, there are an increasing number who left earlier than their stated tenure, which naturally puts us to difficulty and remove chances for others to sign up with us. We prefer only those willing to keep their commitments, as we endeavor to keep ours to you.

    Alleppey is the center of backwater tourism in Alleppey. Nice to take the local ferry (very cheap) and explore the villages that dot the beautiful scenic backwaters. Also as we are close to the beach - stroll down there to catch the sunset.There are a couple of other beautiful beaches not too far from the town - the Marari beach - 20 minuteness drive is really beautiful. The snake temple is about 40 minutes drive. The guesthouses and lake side houseboat jetties are all spread out in Alleppey, and although tourism is big here, one cannot yet call it a touristy place. It's a nice place to chill and relax.

    For Ayurveda practitioners, there is an ayurveda massage parlour a minute's walk from our house where ladies can recieve ayurveda massage training.
