I am Vivian and my mom, husband and I, run a hotel on Rhodes island in Greece! The hotel has 15 rooms, and is located between the airport and the city of Rhodes that hosts people from all over the world!
Since our first Workaway experience and till now, we still love having more new people in our home and business to help us and exchange new experiences and cultures!
Althought we are a small 1 star hotel, we still have very high standards when it comes to hospitality, housekeeping and cleanliness! The hotel industry on Rhodes is very competitive and we are very proud to have excellent reviews from our Guests!
We can accommodate 1 person (NON SMOKER / FLUENT in ENGLISH / using Social Media / TIDY!!! ) who would like to help us on our everyday tasks, from socializing with guests, cleaning, and help in the house in general.
Due to everyday tasks and the fact that we will be sharing the same apartment, it is very importand that you are someone who likes cleanliness, is tidy, handy, polite and of course fast and willing to learn!
Being Fluent in English is absolutely necessary since we have guests from all over the World :)
The basic duties during your stay will be HELPING WITH THE GUESTS (check in, car rental, excursion info) AND EVERYDAY HOUSEKEEPING (room and common areas cleaning, change sheets, sweep floor, kitchen, WCs, stairs, do laundry). Our terrace needs sweeping approx 4 times a day, because of the beautiful jasmin flowers! We also rent a small appartment on the city so we will need some help there as well with housekeeping! :)
Sometimes we need to prepare BREAKFAST for the guests, so some basic cooking skills are important.
If you have previous experience on hotels and housekeeping or you have studied hospitality, you will find this workaway very interesting (and easy) ! If not, you will learn a lot about the hotel industry, the greek hospitality and sociology of the Guests!
The last couple of years we have started a recycling project for our Guests so we try to be as eco friendly as possible :)
Communication through FACEBOOK is absolutely neseccary.
We also have some painting projects going on (for the furniture, walls and garden) and also we are organising a herbs garden ecoproject on a small plot we have next to the hotel with fruits and trees and a traditional windmill!
You are welcome to join our team !
We cannot host smokers and smoking is not allowed (Sorry guys!)
See you on Rhodes!

The best part is that you will meet people and make friends from all over the World! The difficult part is to learn to work fast and efficiently . You will learn a lot on how to communicate with other people from other countries and coultures and you will make new friends! You will also have the opportunity to experience the greek family life (we are a bit loud but we don't fight haha) , traditions, amazing greek food and the surrounding community. Rhodes is a very famous and touristic island so you will be able to meet people from all over the world in and out of the hotel and also enjoy the beauties of the island!!! You will also live for a while on the place where Colossus used to stand! One of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World!
We need help in guests check in and car rentals, housekeeping, ironing, some painting and gardening. We also have a small vegetable garden that needs watering and care a few times a week. We also take care a few stray cats that we have neutered.

Rhodes island in Greece is famous worldwide for its sights and tourism. You can visit the Medieval Town, the ancient cities of ialisos, Kamiros and Lindos and swim in the beautiful beaches of the island.
The Valley of the Butterflies is a unique place worldwide and the Monastery of the Knights (Filerimos) next to the Studios (45 minutes hike ) is one of the most popular places for weddings because of the unique forest with the peacocks.
