I am a Brazilian guy who lived many years abroad in different countries learning languages and travelling. I came back to Brazil a year ago to open a small hostel in the paradise and establish in Florianópolis for my ideal life: living by the beach, being healthy and eco-friendly, cooking, writing, practicing sports and Yoga.
My hostel is like my child. I love the house, the garden, the flowers and my dog, so I like to keep it always super clean and organised. It is a different hostel, not noisy and not a party hostel at all! It is a peaceful, green, relaxing space for world travelers who want to explore the island during the day. We welcome mainly couples from all over the world. We have a library, movies, piano, hammocks. We have a silent time from 10pm so we can enjoy more the day with the guests to go trekking, hiking, surfing, cycling, watching the sunrise, visiting all the spots around the island.
Our family's lifestyle is healthy and green. Smoking, drinking alcohol, or any drugs are strictly forbidden in the house and are not tolerated. We would like to welcome a volunteer who enjoys a similar lifestyle, likes sports or wants to learn, likes languages (learning Portuguese would be nice, we speak also English, French, Spanish, Russian, Czech), and enjoys nature, mountains, beaches, dogs, waterfalls.
Help around the house
Our hostel is very small with 4 rooms only. We need someone to stay in the reception and take care of the house while we go out (4 hours a day). The help will include welcoming guests, being friendly, give local tourist information and easy general maintenance like making beds, organize linen and pillows, washing dishes, basic cleaning like taking out the garbage.
I usually do all the work myself (cleaning, making beds...) in the morning, but sometimes when I am busy or if a guest arrives and I am not here, some help is needed with the cleaning, mainly keeping it clean.
Bed in shared dormitory. Full breakfast included.
We are located by the famous lagoon in Florianópolis where we can practice/learn all water sports like stand up paddle, kite surfing, windsurfing, boat trips. There are trekking and hiking paths nearby into the forest and to waterfalls. Also we are near Joaquina Beach and Mole beach that are great for surfing. We are in the lagoon town where there are many cafés, restaurants (mexican, thai, brazilian, japanese...), food truck parking lot, spas, gyms, sports centres.
I practice many sports, mainly SURFING AND YOGA. I can teach basic surfing and give some Yoga classes for free in your spare time :)
