Hi from Kate and Gerard
We are a retired British couple living in a village overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the Greek island of Kastellorizo. We are 5km from Kas which is a small but vibrant tourist town. Gerard is a blues musician and plays in bars in Kas, currently 4 nights per week.
We have a large garden with a swimming pool, four dogs and around 14 resident cats.(the numbers vary!) We definitely need people who like animals and are comfortable with them. We also have a small boat.

We would prefer a couple but are happy to consider individuals.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
Please consider coming to Kaş and enjoy the place with us and our animals. We also have many Turkish friends who you will meet.
Mainly we need daily help with the garden and pool maintenance.
Gerard will explain the routine for the pool, but it's fairly straightforward.
The pool pump system needs to be turned on every morning and the pool cleared of leaves (and insects) if it's been windy. The bottom of the pool needs vacuuming once per week.
The garden needs sweeping and watering daily, which takes 1-2 hours, depending on the time of year and number of leaves!
When the weather is suitable (May to November) we host a live music event in our garden every 2 weeks. This involves setting up equipment and clearing away, which Workaway guests normally help with.
Our Workaway guests usually help with the general running of the house by doing washing up, occasional light cleaning and carrying things up and down the stairs (there's lots of stairs!)). We employ a cleaner who comes fortnightly and does a ‘big’ clean.
The dogs are walked morning and evening. Gerard takes them out early in the morning and Kate takes them in the evening. Sometimes we ask Workaway guests to walk the dogs in the evening, particularly when we are leaving early for a gig or some other event.
The House has four levels: The garden level; entry level; living level and top terrace. The entry level has two bedrooms, bathroom and the ‘dog room’ which has access to the garden level. (The volunteer bedroom is on this level) The living level has a large kitchen/living room, an outside balcony living room and an office/music room. The top terrace has the master bedroom (en suite) a laundry room and a terrace with a superb view of the sea.
Kaş is a small seaside tourist town on the south coast west corner of Turkey. The majority of visitors are Turkish, and it is very busy during July and August.
We live in Gökseki, a small village just outside the town which is peaceful and rural in nature. There is a regular bus service between the town and the village.
During the winter the town is very quiet although there are restaurants and bars open. The surrounding countryside is fantastic for walking and there are numerous impressive archaeological sites.
