    Description

    Hello, my son and I want to transform our house into an ecological place to live in. Daniel is a professional musician and I am an English teacher. We both speak it fluently. In our home there is always music and good conversations. We need people to help us realize our dream. Our house is located 5 km from Achao , main town of Quinchao island, where you can find a bank, a post office, a harbour, restaurants, supermarkets and beautiful views to enjoy.

    We need to finish building the house, finish the second floor, put on the ceiling, painting the house and work in the field cutting bushes and grass and collecting the firewood. I like to walk, ride my bike and drive through fantastic places to take good pictures.
    Also, it is important to mention that I have several dogs and a cat, all of them rescued. I have room for two people and I need you to work 4 to 5 hours a day from Monday to Friday. I hope you like this project and you can be part of it. If you have knowledge about self-sustainable green-houses we would love to learn from you.

    Accommodation

    My house has 2 comfortable sofas that can be used as beds, with a bathroom that must be shared with my son. There is wifi connection, as well as satellite tv. The house is big enough to feel comfortable. I cook every day, I prepare breakfasts, lunches and dinners, but if you want to help me, you are most welcome.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In your free time, you can walk around to know the area, you can get to the shore where, if you are lucky enough, you can pick up seafood or even fish. People here are really friendly and hitchhiking is very common. You can visit the great island of Chiloé and many national parks, such as Cucao and Tepuhueico. If you like taking pictures, this is the exact place to become a professional photographer, there are many rainbows, amazing sunsets and colourful flowers everywhere.
