We'd like you to have basic conversational ENGLISH as we do not speak another language. We have just moved to THE BEACH. In return for work, 5hrs per day for 5 days or 25gram per week we offer your own accommodation in a separate cabin, which is a caravan with its own Apple TV, Netflix and internet and fully stocked pantry and share our outdoor kitchen, a separate shower and toilet, a shared laundry tranquil life on the best tidal swimming beach on the island. There is also a ferry service to and from the island. Our island is surrounded by national parks, spectacular views, bush walks, deserted beaches and the island has a fun and easy going community with a bar, cafe and restaurant with much entertainment. Your stay length is for 1-2 weeks or so but can be negotiated to more or less. You will find us excellent hosts and a lot of fun!
