    Hi! I haven't been on here for a while - that's why my reply rate is so low but don't be afraid anymore, we need help starting May 1st!

    We are a family owned small rental property business. Our property was entirely hand built by my dad over the last 30 years. We enjoy receiving guests from all around the world to stay with us, our booking are mainly coming from airbnb and our website. I, Julie and my friend Lara run the business for the most part of the year and are looking to find a little more freedom through help from a nice volunteer! :)

    I like simple things, no rush and good vibes! The tasks are quite easy, I need mainly someone to be present, able to welcome guests, clean rooms, general property and basic pool maintenance and someone that is pro active and willing to help us care and keep the place happy and welcoming! As it is already :) Looking for someone who is detail oriented and has a sense of what is expected as far as room cleanliness and general hospitality experience.

    Our place is pretty relax - if you're looking for a "hostel' vibe, we might not be the place for you :)

    Lara will be the one in charge of guiding you as I will be away for those months. You will be under no particular schedule as long as all is done and rooms get cleaned up after guests leave. You have access to a nice outdoor kitchen, brand new pool, gym / yoga equipment, wifi, free coffee etc. Lara is a fitness enthusiast, a surfer and she's also building herself a fully self-sufficient house near Quepos! Passionate about sustainability, she's willing to receive help and share great ideas on that topic!

    We also have 3 awesome dogs and a cat on the property, for animal lovers!
