  • Description


    Help wanted at a vacation rental / ecolodge in Anchorage Alaska in summer, and on sailboat in Florida between January and March.

    Alaska: Primary work includes cleaning, yard work and being creative, decorating, cooking and gardening.

    Depending on season, other projects available include tending to gardens, permaculture projects, composting, recycling and walking/feeding pets. We’re putting in orchard and perennial gardens, building a composting toilet, and other things.

    I ask 20-25 hours of help each week in exchange for housing and food, usually between 9am -1pm, which means you have time to go exploring, make friends, get a part time job, etc.

    In winter, housesitting, shoveling snow, deep cleaning, pet sitting, and assisting my grandmother in her home with shopping and cooking.

    Florida: Cleaning and touching up paint on boat, keeping watch at night, helping prepare meals, doing shopping, film, recording, blogging and social media posting.

    The schedule is primarily 10am-3pm throughout the week. We try to schedule days off a week in advance, and you get two days off, but they aren't always together and they aren't on the weekend. Luckily, those that can keep ahead of the cleaning game and an eye on the schedule and the weather will be able to plan trips in advance. The more efficient and organized you are while working, the more time you will get off
