  • Help

    Help

    We are looking for a workawayer who can spend at least two month or more with us.
    Help required:
    - household tasks: cleaning, laundry, and other household tasks. In general - to keep the house clean.
    - gardening
    - reception assistance (check-in/out)
    - providing help to our guests
    - inside/outside decorations (if you are an artistic person you also can try yourself as a decorator or a painter :))

    We are also looking for a person with a driver's license and experience of driving a manual transmission in case if we need help with the transfer of guests.

    In general, you work three days a week and you will have 4 days off. The days you are working, its cleaning tasks in the morning and during the afternoon doing check ins. As it’s important to us to provide our guests a place where they feel like home, the days you’re working you are supposed to stay all day in the hostel. So the guests always have always somebody to reach out to. We really want to be the volunteers part of our project and share the philosophy of sharing to grow and learn together. So if there is anything you are really passionate about or you’re good at it would be great if you use the afternoons your spending in the hostel to contribute some of your knowledge.
    Anyways I like to do video calls, so we can get to know each other and I can explain the work conditions with more details to you.

    Bed in a nice and cozy shared room with 3 other people. Your house is just next to the beach and has a great garden. So if you need some privacy for sure you’ll find it outside of the room ;)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Fuerteventura island is the best one for surfing in Canarias. So if you are not surfing, you have to try at least once, or two) It's a MUST!
    The name Fuerteventura literally means "Strong Fortune" or "Strong Winds". It's true indeed! Strong winds also attract lots of people who are interested in kitesurf and windsurf. Nice, ha?
    The landscape of Fuerteventura is impressive, wild coasts along the ocean, volcanoes, deserts are eyes killers)
    You can take a bike or bus, or a car and explore the island.
    Lots of people come here also to train themselves for different kinds of marathons, iron man, etc.
    Corralejo city, where we are located, is full of nice places, cafes, restaurants, shops, and bars. So you won't be bored at night time :)
    We can continue to describe all advantages of being here...but the best decision will be just to come here and try all these by yourself being a part of our team!

    Looking forward to seeing you soon! :)
