  • Description

    Description

    Made up of colorful houses amid bohemian cafés and neighborhood cocktail dens - the Bywater area is the authentic New Orleans.
    Live and experience the Jazz and culture which permeates here, with your private space, in a friendly, family atmosphere.

    Hey I am Joe! I am a Scottish native with a masters degree in mechanical engineering. New Orleans is my much loved, adopted home, where I stay with my partner and young son. I have a wide range of interests, from climbing and soccer (football) to astronomy and eco-housing.

    I am looking for some general help around the house which involves cleaning. Will involve approximately 3.5 hours a week during set hours in the afternoon, 7 days a week.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A chance to experience the real New Orleans and help outside, learning new skills. I love showing travelers our city. Just google New Orleans, there is a silly amount of great things to experience here.

    I also have a range of skills from finance, carpentry and many sports that I am always enthusiastic to teach (and to learn from) others.

    The help is light maintenance, cleaning and making beds in a larger house. It requires consistency. dependability and attention to detail - but the help is not difficult!

    The help involves being available all days from 11am until 2.30pm. Not looking for someone who is already living in the city or has a job etc. I am very much in to the traveler exchange part of workaway, so this is only open to someone who is a.) a traveler and b.) able to commit to this project as a priority.

    In exchange I offer a semi-private room (utilities included) with a shared bathroom in the Bywater, New Orleans - right off the St Claude arts corridor. A walkable area, Bywater is home to record and antiques shops, storied music venues, laid-back gin joints, and a growing gallery scene.

    If the helper wanted to take a few days off occasionally (say to go to the beach), I would be open to that, provided it was communicated ahead of time.

    Space for parking camper vans

    There is on street parking which is free, and New Orleans has many people who stay in campers - just wouldn't be possible outside the house because of parking limitations.
