    Help run our bar and guest house

    Our place is a new beach resort in Winneba in the central region of Ghana between Accra and Cape Coast. We have rooms to rent, a beach bar, a big sound system and a stage for events. It is run by Judah a Ghanain Rastafarian and Caroline a British born Actress and Musician. Winneba is a vibrant university town . You will live by the beach and enjoy the sun, sea and sand, go to sleep with the sound of the ocean waves and wake up to the sun rising over the sea.

    We are looking for hard working, open minded, patient work aways who have a good understanding of different cultures. You will be working along side Ghanaians and will be expected to follow the Ghanaian work ethos which can be a bit different from what you are accustomed to. You might be required to wake up early in the morning as cleaning and daily tasks are often done before the sun gets too hot.

    All work away applicants will be required to do a minimum of 4 weeks.
