  • Description


    We are a friendly Chilean/French family, German, Stephanie and Noah.
    Our Ecolodge is located at Cardonal, 6 km south Curanipe. Half hostal half backpackers ecologic conscious format.
    Runs on dry toillets, solar energy, and solar heated water. We tried to be eco constructors, working with palets, and recycled materials.
    We are now finishing a house for us to leave the Ecolodge only for guests.

    We need help to run the Lodge, cleaning, making beds, helping with reservations, compost maintenance, and basic construction tasks.

    German love's surfing/snowboarding and he knows very well the area and their people.

    We offer accomodation for some hours working, you have free time to go surfing or touristing, and we will do everything to help you to discover the area.

    The Ecolodge is at 200 meters from shore and huge and almost lonely beach.
    This area it’s great for surf.
    We are at 1km from the Chovellen River, where you can do kayak, windsurf, stand up paddle, or just relax !
    You can visit and buy organic vegetables in our neighbor's garden.

    Hope to see you soon !

    German and Steph !
