  • Description


    Hello my name is Ben, I have a real estate company in Taiwan for about 5 years, with three employees.

    Not far from Taipei is a place called Waiao. It has an amazing beach and many things to do around.

    The place is very small: 8 double bunk beds, 5 longboards 4 body boards. Its 100m away from the beach.

    We are usually full during week ends but mostly empty during the week. t would be nce to fnd a way to get more customers durng the week.

    So far the place is about 80% renovated. I stay there three days per week on average with my border collie Chewkie who is 4 month old.

    Longer term position could open, you will get health insurance through the company.
