  • Description


    My girlfriend Maria and I are looking to share the beauty of southern Italy with travelers. There is so much to see and do and I love playing tour guide for my guests. I also enjoy sharing my love of kayaking. I have a kayak that can carry three people and I am usually on the water in the afternoons paddling to a beach which can only be reached by boat and then cleaning up plastics off the beach and out of the ocean.

    I am looking for someone to help with light cleaning in my apartment and terrace and help me with cleaning up the sea. Every time I come back from the beach with at least 20 pounds of plastics that people have thrown into our ocean. In exchange, you'll have a bedroom with a bathroom and a hot tub that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. All you will have to pay for are your food and drinks. So come explore Italy with almost zero out of pocket costs!

    I've lived in 5 countries and visited over 50. They will enjoy learning new things and I have a masters degree in International Economics. Near the apartment there is a two thousand year old Roman Amphitheater and a port which has ferries to smaller Italian islands

    For summer visitors I will need help with my son but the rest of the year, its just me in the apartment, so there will only be light cleaning required. I would also like to start a garden on my rooftop terrace which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea.

Everytime we go out to sea, we fill our kayak full of plastic and other trash. The amount of plastics in our seas is crazy!
This is why we spend our free time cleaning up the sea. Poor sea turtle didn't stand a chance with all the trash around it 😔
