    Description

    You will fall in love with Victoria! My property is within walking and biking distance of beaches, parks, downtown, paddling, swimming, hiking etc

    YOU MUST KNOW HOW TO DRIVE A MANUAL VEHICLE
    I can only accommodate one person.
    The pay is minimum wage per week paid every Sunday.

    The most important part of this job is the ability to be a 5 star cleaner with an amazing eye for detail plus the stamina to work a 5 hour day running up and down stairs and climbing ladders into lofts.

    This job will take an incredible skill set in management and just plain old fashioned hard work.
    Are you up for the task as this really will take an exceptional person or persons,

    Working here is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn new skills, interact with people from all over the world and exchange experiences while learning how to run a hospitality business.

    Fully booked most of the year with visitors from all over the world, my house is a 10 minute walk from downtown Victoria, ocean views and many other attractions which is why guests love staying here. With tons to offer in the way of festivals, gorgeous walks, whale watching, hiking, biking, swimming, boating etc. Victoria is the 2nd most popular city in the world to visit. If you decide you want to work with us you will understand why.

    The hours will be a minimum of 3 to 5 hours a day and perhaps more if required or less depending on how many rooms need to be cleaned.

    I would prefer a person that chooses a healthy lifestyle as being up early is important. There is no smoking (of any kind) on the property, for those that wish to smoke there is a bench at the front of the property.

    This truly is a labour of love and the person who decides this a job they are interested in must take huge pride in giving guests a 5 star experience. The rewards come in many ways from accomplishing something that honestly most people cannot do and a sense of sheer joy in putting another's needs before yours and experiencing what that does for other people.

    I love this job and it is hard hard work yet I am thrilled to get up everyday and make other peoples experience here in Victoria fantastic.
