Hello we are Gustavo and Marco and we are friends searching for waves, we live in northern Peru in the town of Los Organos and we started taking people in our house that come and stay all year round surfing with us or doing some other water activities, and sometimes they stay with us just to get away from the noise of the city.
We have a beautiful home with a Ocean view and 4 bungalows ( hoping to build more in the near future ) we are located in a gated condominio we have a large swimming pool a restaurant and free kayaks to enjoy for free, surf boards, and ATV for rent. We are located just 300 meters from the ocean in a private beach.
The town is about 5 minutes walking distance and the pier is about 500 meters from the house, at the pier you could get fresh fish from the fisherman that come in every morning with loads of the days catch ( we love it ).

With us since we live in a small town, they will learn the town and they culture, the typical dishes from the area and wonderful experience in our vast ocean ( surfing, Kayaking, Wind surfing, fishing, deep dive fishing( when available)
The people in our town are very friendly so you would enjoy many of the local traditions, depending on the dates of arrival.
Another great thing is that you could get from the ocean what ever you give, the love we have for the ocean and to keep the beaches safe and clean for everyone to enjoy is a reward on itself.
We are growing so we need all the help we could get.
We are still learning on how to use the internet so help is need it, for some marketing and publicity, also we do have clients from all over the world so with so many languages sometimes is difficult to attend all the tours that we do.
We have swimming with the turtles so every time we will go out we need a volunteer to help us with the clients the attention explications and translating and also you get to enjoy the tour for free.
Some gardening is need it as many say we need a female touch around the garden and house, like we mention before we are soul surfers and may lack a bit on the beautification of the place.
Also with construction, since we are growing some plumbing, some building and heavy lifting may be need it but mainly some remodeling around.( we have tools )
We would like to start some new projects with teaching people from the town ( English ) and we could use someone for that as well.
Forgot to mention that all volunteers get free surf lessons and tours.
The room is a share room with a private bathroom, we do have a kitchen and several common areas aside from the whole condominium that is at your disposal.
We have a rich wild life, from exotic tropical birds and beaches, to predators as well, like the residence hawk. ( only around on migration season )
Whale watching in the months of August till November, mother whales teach they young to hunt for fish right in from of our house, its quiet the sight!!!.
Lots of sea lions in the months of March till June that come to mate in the Lions Cave ( local given name ) 15 minutes south of us in the town of El Ñuro.
In the pier you guys could swim with the turtles and if your lucky some baby hammer heads around ( they dont attack )
The town of Mancora ( party central ) is only 10 minutes away by colectivo ( small private cars that drive from town to town taking people for 5 soles each ride. You could also take EPPO a bus company that travels from Piura to Mancora every day for only s/. 2 soles to the town of Mancora from Los Organos.
The Manglares are a bit inside the mountains but still could get there by car only, other wise do a tour.
And the best thing to enjoy around our house is the WAVES...Cabo Blanco a few minutes south as well as Panic Point, Lobitos is an hour away, Punta Sal 45 minutes north, Mancora 10 minutes north, and hundreds of virgin breaks all around.....just have to wait for the swell and your gold.
