    Hello I'm Lucy,

    I live on Curacao since 2016, first managing a B&B, until it was sold in july this year, and now doing all sorts of things which is why I am so busy. For the B&B, situated on the west side of the island, I did jeeptours with my guests, After the B&B was sold, I continued doing the Jeeptours with the old jeep. Besides the tours, I help manage some properties, assist in renting them, doing the admin, welcoming guests, picking up and bringing them to the airport, organising cleaning and daytrips, giving tourist information, organizing small events, and more ....

    Since february 2019, I own my own guesthouse, it is simply beautiful, but always in need of TLC.

    As you see, there`s a lot to do. There are busy times and calm times. Most of the time it`s BUSY! I could certainly use a helping hand now and then, someone who is an allrounder, handyman, adventurous, but most of all.... FRIENDLY! Working with tourists is the main job here, their happiness and Curacao experience is the most important thing. I need someone who can handle that. Hospitality is a gift you either have or you don`t.

    Besides being handy, it would be FANTASTIC if you know how to fix cars.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Curacao is a FANTASTIC island. For those interested in learning how to dive, it is paradise. The ocean is clear and amazingly blue. We have coral reefs and lots of fish to observe in it. The locals are friendly and helpful, most of them speak 3 languages (Papiamentu, dutch, spanish) it is ALWAYS summer. You can learn how to: dive-dance-speak foreign languages-meet people from all over the world-make friends for life. The best thing of all: you will live the laid back carribean island lifestyle for a while. No matter how busy you get sometimes, the beaches and the ocean just ooze away your everyday stress.

    Help

    I need someone with a drivers licence, a handyman to maybe fix minor problems, (electricity, plumbing), someone with a positive and hands on personality. Your work will be: airport transfers, welcoming tourists to this amazing island, taking care of checkins and checkouts of the holiday rentals, fixing minor casualties, doing my tours if I am too busy, sometimes cleaning apartments if my cleaning staff is too busy, just aiding me in everything I do. The work is VERY diverse, every day has a little surpise in it somewhere.

    Accommodation

    You will be staying at my place. I am hardly ever home, always on the run doing something (of course when you are here, I will have more time ;) ) We cook ourselves, I pay for the groceries. If you want to eat out, it will be on your own expense. You will have your own room and enough privacy. I live on the west side of Curacao, an hour away from the city.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    After your work is done, you will have so much to see and do. Take a PADI Open Water Dive Course, take salsa or bachata lessons, learn a foreign language, learn about our history, be a tourist yourself, just enjoy our heritage, nature and ocean, whatever you like!
