Hi! We are Leaf and Irene, Kai, Til and Pia, who live in Venao Beach, Panama. Leaf is Australian and Irene Austrian and the kids where born here in Panama.
We own and run a beach hostel on Panama’s pacific coast.
Playa Venao! Panamanians dream to come to live and work at this beach. It’s known for its beauty, remoteness and waves. Playa Venao is also a synonym for a more relaxed and easy going life style.
It’s all about the ocean. If you don’t surf chances are you will after your first few weeks here.
We own and run a beach/surf hostel that is constantly fluctuating with people from all over the globe, the common area is a great place to meet and mingle. We also always have several other volunteers staying on site helping at the hostel.
We like to call Venao Cove "the quiet end of the beach" since it’s not a party place, but our volunteers enjoy the nightlife at the other end of the beach.
Ask for our website to get an idea what the place looks like!
If you don’t mind a little quiet and appreciate a beautiful natural environment by the sea this is for you!
We are looking for a someone responsible, reliable, energetic and fun to help us with the homeschooling of our eldest son, Kai.
He will be enrolled with Australian Distance Education: The Australian Department of Education will provide us with home schooling lessons material that is well prepared and easy to follow. You will be responsible of making sure that everything gets done, which will require you gain a good understanding of the structure of the homeschooling material and hopefully develop a fun and trusting relationship sith Kai that will enable him to enjoy his learning.
Working hours will be light, about 4 - 5 hours per day, 5 days per week. When the surf is up in the morning we May ask you to postpone some of the work to the afternoon so we can all go surfing together.
We will require your help for a minimum of one school term at a time. If you can come for multiple of the following terms, even better.
The Australian terms are:
Monday, 27 April 2020 - Friday, 3 July 2020

Irene, Leaf, Kai, Til and Pia
We will provide you with accommodation in one of our popular beach front hostel dorm rooms.
We think Playa Venao is one of the most beautiful places in Panama, especially suited for nature-lovers. We have a small beach-community of Ex-Pats as well as locals, who are generally laid-back, friendly and happy. There aren't too many people living in the area, we recommend our little paradise to people who like a quiet and peaceful surrounding, however, with the hostel constantly fluctuating with people from all over the world you really shouldn't get bored! ;)
