    I am looking for skilled helpers to brush up the homestay. Gardening, landscape gardening Planning and building a forest school playground, outdoor lounge area, small stage. Skills in carpentry, construction,
    electricity for putting on lights, internetrouters, decorating and refurnishing rooms. Painting.

    only after COViD 19 2021

    I need someone to be present at the property to help with guests check in and check out, organize transport and possibly advise for tours.

    Experience in hospitality business, but especially gentleness, kindness, open mindedness, manners this means a good portion of social skills and common sense are highly appreciated. Being handy with little repairs and around the kitchen is no disadvantage.

    We are operating a small homestay in Ninh Binh province right at the buffer zone of UNESCO natural and cultural world heritage of mankind site Trang An landscape complex also known as Terrestrial Halong Bay.

    We grow organic tropical fruit, vegetables and herbs. Our property hosts many kinds of wildlife, birds, insects etc. We had many volunteers staying since Oct 2015 and mostly it was a unique and rewarding experience for both sides.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    little grocer shops and market in the village 10 min walking distance, free bicycle use. We expect our helpers first they have been introduced into their task basically to work on their own and clean up when work is finished. There will be always somebody around to answer questions or help along. Usually they should work 5 hours on 5 days a week in average depending f.i. on weather. We are easy going and it is our aim that everything works out as a fair give and take for both sides. We like to have our helpers to live with us like family, we shall take care on their needs and preferences but expect them to give also a helping hand at housework and keep their accommodation and tools they are given to work with clean and tidy.
    The helpers share our freshly homemade meals with vegetables and herbs from our organic garden, we will do our best to meet their likes, also free organic fruit of the season and herbal infusions.
