    SHORT WORKAWAY maximum 1 week

    Returning from a world tour, we offer you a short workaway. We were looking for short workaways during this trip so that we could also visit the countries, but generally only found workaways who required a minimum stay of 3 weeks - 1 month. We did not do it and were disappointed with this lack of experience.

    That's why we invite you to come to our house even if it's not for long.

    We live on Reunion Island, in Saint Gilles les Bains, near the city center and the lagoon.
    We moved in November and have a room available to accommodate 1 or 2 people.
    We would need help with the garden, cleaning (such as cleaning floors with stubborn stains, interior of cupboards, windows, window surrounds...), and some small jobs such as painting or cleaning the terrace.

    The house is very well placed, there is a bus stop 200m away, local shops 200m away and the lagoon 50m away!

    We can lend you our bikes when we are not using them :)

    We have a cat, Gus, too cute with lots of hair, he's quite shy and won't stick to your paws but we prefer to prevent major allergies ^^

    WORKAWAY COURT maximum 1 semaine

    Rentrant de tour du monde, nous vous proposons un workaway court. Nous recherchions des workaway courts pendant ce voyage pour pouvoir aussi visiter les pays, mais ne trouvions en général que des workaway qui demandaient de rester minimum 3 semaines - 1mois. On n’en a pas fait et avons été déçus de ce manque d’expérience.

    C’est pour cela qu’on vous propose de venir chez nous même si c’est pour pas longtemps.

    Nous vivons sur l’île de la Réunion, à Saint Gilles les bains, proche du centre ville et du lagon.
    Nous avons emménagé au mois de novembre et avons une chambre disponible pour héberger 1 ou 2 personnes.
    Nous aurions besoin d’aide pour le jardin, du ménage (comme nettoyer des sols avec taches tenaces, intérieur de placards, vitres, contours de fenêtre...), et quelques petits travaux comme de la peinture ou nettoyage de terrasse.

    La maison est très bien placée, il y a un arrêt de bus à 200m, commerces de proximité a 200m et lagon à 50m !

    Nous pourrons vous prêter nos vélos quand on ne s’en sert pas :)

    On a un chat, Gus, trop mignon avec plein de poils, il est assez peureux et ne vous collera pas aux pattes mais on préfère prévenir les grands allergiques ^^
