my name is Thijs (originally from Holland) and since 2006 I am the owner of an apartment house in the most beautiful valley in the Austrian Alps. The house is beautifully located in Bad Gastein in a car free zone and in the middle of nature. We offer 8 apartments in different sizes. In total we offer place to a maximum of 40 guests. Some guests also order breakfast but most of them make their own breakfast.
I offer a unique opportunity for people with a wish to have their own b&b sometime in the future. A lot of people have the dream to start a b&b, but they never got the chance to test it what it really is like. Buying a b&b or renting a b&b and starting up your business costs a lot of money and energy. I know many examples of people who did it and who were dissappointed because the dream was not like the reality. Luckily I also know a lot of examples of people who prepared the new adventure very well and succeeded to live the dream.
In this situation there is not something like working hours or an inflexible time table with fixed working hours. Every day is different and it is not to predict how next day will be. You take over the responsibility to run the house in a team with 2, 3 or maximum 4 participants with the same dream. The guests are going to be your best friends and you are going to offer them the best service that they do not expect. You have to be ready for that challenge. Are you?
Winter 2019/2020 is already full.
Things to do:
Check in and out of the guests
Ski tours with guests
Satisfy the guests!
You must be service minded and be able to work in a team. You get a lot of responsibility.
I prefer life experienced people who speak German and English. You need a drivers licence B(E).
Bad Gastein is a town filled with nature, art and beautiful buildings and is very attractive for active tourists and artists.
Gastein is a big and high (up to 2700 m) ski area with 200 km of prepared slopes and a lot of freeriding possibilities.
You can offer the guests some activities like ski tours, yoga lessons or massage or just use your time to explore the beautiful mountains.
There is always something to maintain in or around the house. Maybe you can instruct yoga or offer massages or something like that, so you can make some additional money. I am open for all your suggestions.
I offer a private 2-room apartment with balcony and private bathroom. It is big enough for 2 - 4 persons. You possibly share it with other helper(s).

Bad Gastein is a spa town in the Austrian state of Salzburg, situated at the northern rim of the Hohe Tauern national park. It has about 4,000 inhabitants. The name "Bad" means "spa", reflecting the town's history as a health resort. It is located at the head of the Gastein valley, about 1,000 metres (3,280 ft.) above sea level. The townscape is characterised by historic multi-story hotel buildings erected on the steep slopes. The name is occasionally rendered in old books and newspaper reports as Badgastein.
