    ¨¨¨Update, Currently I have volenteers until the

    My name is Nina, I have lived in Lobitos for 12 years. I am looking for help converting my home into a guest house for surfer girls and other kinds of travelers from all over the world. Anyone with experience in carpentry, painting, gardening, marketing, are welcome!!! This experience is perfect for anyone who loves to surf or just loves to be close to the beach. I have a dog, a cat, I'm a single mom of a beautiful 8-year old daughter and we love to learn, play and spend quality time together.
    I'm looking for different kinds of volunteers, as mentioned above, who are willing to contribute 4 hours of work a day, 5 days a week in exchange for a bed in a shared room and a breakfast. Volunteers can use the kitchen and we can share recipes from our countries if you like!
    Unfortunately I don't speak English well enough yet, but I love to receive friends from all over the world and will make an effort to communicate and learn. And sometimes I have English-speaking volunteers here with me :).

    Hola mi nombre es Nina, vivo en Lobitos por los últimos 12 años con mi bella hija Emilia de 8 años un perrito y un gatito. Busco personas que puedan ayudarme a transformar mi casa en una posada para mujeres surfers de todo el mundo y no surfer también :). Necesito personas que puedan ayudar en carpintería, pintura, mural, jardinería/permacultura, electricidad, marketing, instructores de surf. Esta sera una perfecta experiencia para quienes amen lugares tranquilos y en la playa. Aunque no hablamos Ingles nos encantara compartir con personas de todos los idiomas. El voluntariado consiste en 5 días, 2 días de descanso 4 horas al día de trabajo, habitación compartida, agua caliente, wifi, cocina y podemos compartir ideas y recetas si desean!

    Espero conectarme con ustedes, amigos del alma!

    Please keep in mind this is my home and I like to keep a peaceful, family environment. Also be aware that there are not many stores in Lobitos, only some small local stores. Somtimes a fruit-vegetable car will pass. In Talara is a big supermarket so I advice you to takesome groceries from there.
