  • Description


    Be a part of our family, who owns a beautiful accommodation with 18 rooms. The father designed the building and the daughter designed the interior and is in charge of managing in general. We wanted to design a place that suits Jeju's beautiful sceneries. We want our guests to rest in a quiet and comfortable environment, so we only accept a single or a couple guests. We would like to extend our boarder from simply being a space where people can appreciate beautiful views, to a place where both tourists and locals can experience art and cultures. We are looking for a proper way to achieve our goals.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A family owns the building. It is newly built, safe and clean place to be. The tasks we ask you to do won't be too difficult to learn and very flexible. We respect your time and experience, so I try to make it as flexible as possible. It is a beautiful building with a nice rooftop and a cafe. It won't be a bad idea to spend your whole day inside the building. But only if you can resist Jeju island's amazing nature sceneries.

    We encourage our guests to be sit back, meditate, slow down and daydream. It is important that our guests are provided with outstanding service and exceptionally clean rooms. We'd like to have someone calm, friendly, but rather quiet. We basically want someone who can keep things in order for our accommodation with us. We try to keep the building pleasant and tidy all the time. We outsourced housekeeping, but we still double check if the rooms are 'clean enough' and sometimes they need our extra support too. Other than that, simple tasks such as providing service for the guests, sweeping, moping the floor, washing dishes, emptying the trash bins and watering our plants are required.

    We currently have one manager, one staff and myself, but due to increasing (very gradual though) bookings, we are short-handed. We'd like to have one more person to work with. You will work 5 times a week, from minimum 5 hours to maximum 8 hours. Your daily work will be checking rooms, sitting at the cafe and supporting our the guests if needed. You will be paid minimum wage and a valid working visa is required to work at our place. We spend a lot of time together, so we'd like to have someone who can stay long (the longer the better) and who can enjoy living in the island. We feel very responsible of the coming Workawayers' experience not only in Korea, but also in Jeju Island.

  • Accommodation


    You will get a nice room, which is a private room with a private shower and a toilet. The room will be shared with one other person. Two people in one room. The whole building is designed by an architect and is located right in front of Jeju's beautiful ocean. We have all the facilities that you would need. A washing machine, a drier etc. can be shared and a separate kitchen is prepared as well. Our town is called Aewol, 30 mins away from the Jeju city or the airport and it's quite easy to access public transportation.

    What else ...

    I'm responsible of your time here. You can always talk to me about your concerns or problems. I lived abroad myself, so I have better understandings of how it feels to be abroad. You can also ask me about what to do, where to visit. I am exploring the island as well, so we can be a good company to each other too.
