  • Description

    Description

    We will begin the search for a long term caretaker. The position will become available by spring or mid summer 2022 .

    We are an off grid yoga and adventure oceanfront retreat in Hawaii.
    we are not a farm.

    Other seasonal positions:
    we are also in need of a seasonal kitchen manger and chef. this position can morph into the oversight of our home when we are away and be sure it is clean and taken care of ; flowers changed, rooms kept clean and possibly some gardening. When we host groups mostly in our winter season the home manager would become a full time chef and kitchen manager. it is ideal that one person or a couple can take on this important position; however we may have an overseer/caretaker year round and a chef /kitchen manager seasonally ? we also take on one-3 seasonal helpers for the kitchen . High season is normally our winter fall , winter and spring months
