    Description

    Got a little tired of travelling (after 3 yrs) so thought about coming home for a while to surf and put up a small guesthouse in Sitio LiwLiwa, San Felipe, Zambales.

    In front is a river (where we fish at times; some swim; then behind about 200m, is the beach). Quite laid back in the area; 1 hostel, a few resorts. It's a nice detox area though urban people might die of boredom; If you're the party guy, this is 0% for you. Yet, for those who appreciate nature sounds (croaks, crows, birds, waves,) this place is more than cool. Some days the trees fronting the river are flocked with fireflies.

    We've opened up to workaway from day 1 of the the bush clearing up to construction and so on. I decided to open up to volunteers to give back the opportunity i had when I was travelling.

    As we are already in operation, right now, we ONLY need creatives and upcyclers. Quite interested in those who can do molding and sculpting, and wood carpentry.

    At the moment, There is 1 cottage for the staff. We roll a thin mattress (1 inch thick) in a 3m x 3m area and share the space together; Quite basic, but its mostly how i'd like to run the hostel.

    as I don't look at this as work, and that I am more into the flow of ideas, I don't have a defined hours and duration for this exchange so help as you please. But as adults and travellers, I am expecting the volunteer to know what is less and excess. I may have to get into details of what you do, how long you are going to stay, and expect the outcome after the duration. There are surfboards on site, but these are friends' so usage will be charged on a discounted rate.
