    For our summer season we are looking for a couple that can help us with guest services, errands, laundry and cleaning.

    We are looking for people to help us for our busy 2020 season. If you are making early plans for 2020 we have lots of spaces from May til September. If you would like a long workaway on the Island, we like to have one couple from June 15th until August 31 if possible. We always have many applicants for this spot so if you are interested, please contact us early.
    We have very nice accommodations for you, this is really a wonderful area. This would suit a couple or a very independent single. Please email if you are interested in part or all of these times. Please look at our feedback on this site. Need more information? Just send us an email.
    Thanks and safe travels!
    Rick and Karen
