  • Description


    We are a laid back couple (Frenchman 52 and American Woman 35) with a 15 boy looking for help in building our organic veggie garden project and random child care when we travel and help build websites I am currently working on. We are looking for a handyman for odd jobs around the villa. If you are an architect we are interested to plan another villa.

    We live in Phuket, Thailand in a villa overlooking Chalong Bay. We are divers, travel adventurers and enjoy connecting with good people. Typically when we have workaways here, they are given one of our available separate apartments and come up to help for a few hours and then stay independent the rest of the time. We would love to have someone teach their own cultures food and on some days join for a family style sit down meal when we have connected.

  • Help


    The lady of the house is currently in process of building an All Natural Body Care Collection Company
    (Unisex Products including Body Oil, Wash, Scrub etc.)
    We are interested to learn more about Healthy Vegan/Vegetarian cooking.
    We would love to create an organic vegetable garden.

    We also need assistance with looking after our 15 year old son sometimes as he is still learning how to cook for himself and has to be reminded when to go to bed, brush his teeth, turn off his electronics and help with homework on some days.
    We travel frequently and would love to have someone with him during those trips to stay with him if we are unable to take him along.

    Looking for trusted talented individuals with any of these skillsets:
    - web designer and understand business
    - organic gardening expertise and skills - natural pesticides/compost
    - Vegan/ Vegetarian diet knowledge (not a necessity but would be great)
    - Understanding children on the spectrum
    - Architect to help draw up plans for a new villa project
    - Handyman abilities (painting, fixing random things)
