You must be Neat and Tidy.
You will have you own detached wooden house in a semi-jungle environment. Your own pantry, sink, toilet and shower. You won't have to share with anyone if you are a couple, if you are a solo traveller you will have to share room with another volunteer because there is only one room available.
My place is very quiet . It is in a mini jungle with lots of trees, even though we are just 2 km from the city centre.
Although there will be mosquitoes, there is mosquito netting for the windows. Your own room has 2 single mattresses on the floor with pillows and blankets. There is a ceiling fan and electricity sockets.
There is a fridge, kettle, small cooker , electric rice cooker, wooden table and chairs just outside your room. my maid will use the common space for laundry twice a week but only for a short while. other times it is very quiet. You can drink your tea in a jungle. 😁
Make your own breakfast, coffee, tea and toasts. Uncooked food will be provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You will prepare your own meals. I am a vegetarian so I can't buy meat for you, sorry. I buy food once every two weeks.
WiFi is Not available in your room, it is only available up in the main house. Your house is located below a hill, you will have to walk up and down the hill everyday, not that high. Sometimes my dogs will accompany you : )😊
