I am a divorced business owner that owns an incredible lakefront home in the Ocala National Forest. I also own my business property ( a photography studio) in Ocala. It's a beautiful part of Florida close to many crystal clear rivers and springs. Only a little over an hour to the beach.
I discovered Workaway about a few years ago and have been dreaming of the day when I can be free of my responsibilities (mortgage payments) and travel the world helping others. I have 40 plus adventures I want to volunteer for in my host list. In order to do that, I need to fix up my properties and get them in shape to be sold.
I'm looking for some help in doing this. We are in the woods and there are spiders and spider webs. You will rarely see a live spider but you will see a lot of webs and they need to be constantly cleaned. If you have a problem with this then this is not the place for you. Also if you are just looking for a free place to stay on your holiday and are not prepared to work then please go elsewhere.
I love to show the area and experience it through the eyes of those who are seeing it for the first time. Lots of canoeing, kayaking, swimming. I could take you somewhere one day per week - other than that you would need your own transportation or can hang out on the beautiful lake.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
Next to The Ocala National Forest - On a beautiful lake - swimming, kayak, and paddle board available to use. Great fishing on the lake as well.
Centrally located in Florida, so you can see many places on your days off. I can drive you somewhere one day per week if you contribute the gas money.
I have a wonderful dog, but don't want anyone who is bringing a pet.
25 hours per week - less if you are productive. If you are a good helper you can help three or four days and take the rest of the time off. Or if you would prefer to spread it out that is OK as well as long as we make progress on my projects.
Building skills really appreciated. Landscape and gardening. Lakefront also needs some weeding and cleaning.
I really need someone with initiative that can supervise themselves. Please don't apply if you are the type that needs to be told every little detail over and over again.
Spare bedroom in my home. Shared bath. Full use of kitchen and own refrigerator but I am on a very restricted diet so you must provide your own meals.
I'd want to speak a bit on the phone to make sure we communicate well before making final arrangements for your visit.
You would be staying in my home with me, so if you don't have any references you can provide, then don't bother applying. A reference is a letter from someone you have worked for that attests to your character and working habits.
Must be 21 or older.
MUST HAVE REFERENCES!!! PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU HAVE NEVER HAD A JOB BEFORE AND CANNOT PROVIDE A LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION!!!!!
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
25 hours per week - flexible on times if you want to use my place as a base to explore other areas.
