  • Description



    I am Eduardo and I live in a peaceful and beautiful beach called Armacao, and I am looking for basic help to fix up my two bedroom house. The house is simple, not for everyone, it is roots. So if you need lots of comfort and fancy things this is not it. But if you like nature and are grateful for having a roof over your head and good food on the table, I will be more than happy to share a bit of my life with you.

    I hope to hear from you.

    The house is in a walking distance (6 minutes) from the beach and there will be plenty of time to enjoy it. Surfing, taking long walks, swimming in the ocean or just relaxing by the beach.

    I've been living in Florianopolis for over 20 years and I'll be happy to take the time to talk to you about all the goods in the Island. As well as being very flexible with work hours so you can enjoy your stay here.

  • Help


    I need help with construction repairs, general repairs, wood work, painting, etc. As well as cleaning, organising things and taking good care of the house. The work is easy and doesn´t require experience. I basically need a helpful hand. But if you have experience it is even better, I can be your helpful hand then, follow your lead and we can do bigger projects.

    Please describe what kind of skills you have and what kind of work would you like to do here.

    What else ...

    There are a few Gold Tegu lizards that sometimes hang around in the front patio of the house, so if you are not chilled having wild life so near you it is best you search a different host. Also, I have a cat.
