  • Description


    We are Pon and Meg, a Thai Kiwi couple, and owners of a handmade silver jewellery shop on Railay Beach. We are parents to three kids and a couple of cats and a dog. We live on a quiet road on the outskirts of Krabi town. Pon hand makes silver jewellery from our house and in the high season Meg travels daily to Railay beach to manage our shop. Pon spent many years working as a rock climbing guide on Railay before we opened our silver shop. Meg stopped in Thailand after many years in Europe and never quite moved on. Eight years ago Pon lost his left leg in a car accident and life suddenly became very busy and certainly more difficult. We are looking for volunteers who enjoy the outdoors, and are good with landscaping or construction. We have many gardening, landscaping and building jobs as well as indoor cleaning and day to day chores.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Being an English Thai speaking family we are able to show and explain the Thai culture from both the foreign perspective and the Thai perspective. We love thai food and live in a lovely quiet and traditional neighborhood as well as being close to all the amazing tourist attractions that Krabi has to offer

    We are looking for someone/couple to come and help out with a lot of outdoor landscaping and gardening work as well as helping out in and around the house with general cleaning and tidying up. We have three kids who are at school during the day but in the evenings and weekends are about. Ideally our workawayers wont be afraid to get their hands dirty and will be able to help out in the day to day running of our busy household.

    We live close to public transport and in your own time we are happy to play tour guide and show you the sights of Krabi
