    Description

    Aloha!

    My name is Laura. I was born here but raised on the east coast. I have been back here since 1989.
    Hawaii is gorgeous and you will be in Paradise. Here on the Big island we have a laid back life style.

    I am a real estate agent and work mostly from home. I have one indoor cat, Cutie.

    I also foster kittens (one at a time) for the Humane society.

    We will interact some doing these projects or you may wok on your own at times. We will be happy to teach you about the Hawaiian culture, the Volcanoes that make up the island and experiencing a tropical Polynesian climate.
    You will be surrounded by tropical plants, birds and you can learn about the Hawaiian history,

    There are many things to see and do such as many beautiful beaches near by, snorkeling, bike riding, hiking, diving, etc

    I will be happy to pick you up at Kona airport.
    I hope to learn about your country or your area.

    Help

    I have just moved into a 2/2 condo in Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii.
    I need help with painting the walls, putting up shelving, putting boards in attic for storage, set up TV's, securing towel racks, various small repairs, hanging pictures, etc. putting up or replacing ceiling fans, therefore, we am looking for someone with “Handy man” skills.
    We are looking for someone starting ASAP through August 30th.

    The Kona condo is a 2-bedroom, 2 bath so you will have your own bedroom and bathroom.
    Breakfast and lunch are included in exchange for 25 hours of work a week. we usually have a healthy smoothie for breakfast and lunch varies daily. Please let us know if you have any dietary wishes.

    If you are interested, please let us know your “handy man” skills.

    Mahalo,
    Laura

    You will have your own bedroom & bath. We will share the kitchen, living areas, etc
    Condo has 2 pools and 2 hot tubs and is located across the street from the ocean.

    What seems to work best is 5 hours a day Mon-Fri for a total of 25 hours a week OR 6 hours for 4 days so you can have 3 days off to enjoy the island life. The evenings and weekends will be your own time to explore and enjoy the area.

    No smoking anywhere on the property. 4/20 friendly but there is no smoking allowed on the premises anywhere,
    Condo in Kona does not allow this.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT AS OF RIGHT NOW, 7/17/21, IF YOU FLY INTO HAWAII, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO TAKE A COVID TEST ONCE YOU ARRIVE IN HAWAII. CHECK WITH YOUR AREA TO SEE IF YOU NEED ONE BEFORE YOU GET ON THE PLANE. YOU WILL NEED TO FLY INTO THE KONA AIRPORT. CHANGES MAY HAPPEN DEPENDING ON THE VIRUS.
