  • Description


    We are a organisation that provide accommodation in places where people can interact with outdoor sports and nature. Our goal is to create an atmosphere where costumers can feel the comfort and coziness of the place support by a team who shows a respectful and friendly way of relating. Because the location of our lodge is surrounded by nature and outdoor activities , is important that the staff like this way of life , telling about their experience, supporting and helping the guest . The help we need is in our lodge located in the middle of a valley in the south of Chile, near to a ski resort that in the summer becomes in a bike and hike park and in the winter a ski resort. The house is near to the principal road, we are connected to the main network electricity and the water comes from a private waterhole.

  • Help


    Operating a lodge for 35 people includes different tasks every day, it's like keeping a big house, so help can be needed in all areas, for example, repairing things, helping in the garden, cut firewood and sharing with tourist . But mainly we need help in our small restaurant, setting up the tables for breakfast in the night and during the day attend the tables at meal times. These also include do the washing up and clean the kitchen. Sometimes we have lots of guest, specially during the weekends, and then nothing happens during the week, so we need people that can be flexible with the working hours on busy days.

    Our lodge also has others service, such as a pool , hot tub, fire pit, sauna and kid's games. With this saying we also required help with, for example, light the fire in the hot tub and sauna , and general maintenance of the services. It is very important for us tocreate the environment that makes people feel like in home , being part of that moment of their vacations or travel.
