    My husband and I need help with our small shop located in the East Coast of Taiwan. We don’t have kids yet but we have one very loving, friendly and adorable dog who likes to welcome everyone. If you are a pet lover, you will definitely fall in love with her. We like cooking, traveling, going to the beach, and attending different activities and events in the area. My husband, Will, likes to surf, dive, and cycle. The beach is our favorite hang out place. I like baking and making crocheted bags and clothes - you can learn from me if you want.

    Our location is in the surfing capital of the country between the ocean and the mountains. It is just walking distance to the beach and there are lots of fun things to do on your free time such as hiking, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, cycling, soaking in hotsprings, and many more. This is the place that most of the travelers want to stay for a long time, if you are an artist, musician, nature lover, you will definitely love it here.

    Taitung Green Island is just a 40-minute ferry ride away, where you can experience saltwater hot springs that can only be found in 3 places in the world.

    We need 1-2 people who can welcome the customers and create a warm and lovely atmosphere in our small shop. At times we might need your help to make simple food and cleaning, help in gardening — we have many plants to take care of (such as basil, rosemary and mint which we also use in cooking). We also do some wood crafts like making chairs, table, lamp and decorations. Your ideas and help with this will be very appreciated. Our lovely dog also sometimes needs your attention. She is very sweet and clingy, likes to show her chubby tummy and ask for a belly scratch.
    If you are an artist you are welcome to give us ideas to create decorations or paint our wall on our free time. Our wall decorations and paintings are actually made by Spanish and British artists residing here in Taitung. If you are a musician, feel free to use our guitar and we can sing together. You can also attend a local-visitor social night on weekends where you can have drinks and listen/play live music.
    Any nationality is welcome to apply as long as you can communicate in English.
