    Description

    Stay in a beautiful house situated right on the Caribbean. Need someone to do some general fix up such as painting, varnishing,. I also want to build a beach bar and deck, so basic construction / carpentry skill is needed. Experience with solar electrical systems and pool repair goes to the top of the line!

    I will trade free room and board for 5 hrs a day of house maintenance and light construction.

    Hours would be completely flexible, though because of the weather an early start and early finish are the best.
    Projects include painting and varnishing, tile repair, gutter repair, building a beach bar / deck. You can work with local Garifuna and Maya or do solo projects.

    Your rooms have bunks or doubles so you can share a room if traveling with company. Kitchen is available and you are welcome to share meals when we are there. There's a nice beach restaurant about 10 minutes walk from the house, and the other direction has a bunch of bars about 15 mins away.
