    PLEASE READ EVERYTHING FIRST.

    CURRENTLY I'M CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE (MOST LIKELY APRIL 2021).

    I manage a short term rental property in Boston. It is a hostel that feels like a home :-) Generally we need help with checking guests in, cleaning, daily household work, and some light maintenance work (painting, cutting grass, gardening, etc). We're looking to host and exchange different culture. Our minimum stay is one month, if you can stay close to one month, feel free to contact us. A plus if you are active physically and can help go lobster fishing in the summer months ;)

    Live in an American city and explore the best of New England, in the largest city in New England. You will be exposed to a lot of different cultures, since we host travelers. Boston is a vibrant city with lots of history. We are located near the Boston train red line and the city center is 3 stops from us. We're also located walking distance to the South Boston beach. Yes! The beach is swimmable, you wouldn't expect that in the city but it does exist! Our property is located on a quiet residential street, but a short distance to the main street and the public metro (the T, as it's called in Boston). We're near a swimmable beach in South Boston and Vietnamese town, where you can get great Pho and Banh Mi.

    For qualified applicants with a valid work visa, or for USA residents who don't need a visa, we can offer a paid wage. For workawayers with special skills such as tour guide, yoga, cooking, etc, we can provide opportunities to earn extra income to aid in your travel. Please do NOT ask about paid work unless you have a valid work visa, as we cannot offer payment to people without work authorization.

    In the spring 2021 I will also need help with building out a #vanlife van.

    What else ...

    You'll have plenty of time off to explore the city. Rent a bike and explore the city by night, see the historical sites, relax at the local beach, visit museums and famous universities around Boston and Cambridge. I also have a small motor boat and if you're interested, you can help me lobster fish in the summer months. So this will work well for someone who likes to be active and do sports.

    Space for parking camper vans

    I can provide a spot for a small/medium size campervan only. Something like a Chevy Astro, or max size dodge promaster... but the smaller the better. As an owner of a Chevy Astro camper van myself, we can work something out.
