During this time, depending on your skills, you might be required to improve the accommodation by doing small jobs (painting, carpentry, organizing, office and computer work...) and/or to cultivate enough crops to to feed a few people in order to make this exchange a win-win for all parties.
Non-smokers, nature-oriented and kids-and dogs-lovers preferred.

Apart from this defined time span of work which preferably takes place in the morning, we would appreciate your participation in any common chores such as keeping the place neat and clean, cooking, washing, shopping or doing the dishes.
This host offers a language exchange
I'm also interested in just practicing any language that I already know
Depending on the number of guests/volunteers in the house, volunteers will be able to enjoy a private room.
Special note: We do offer Internet access, which can be used for checking and sending mails or do some quick research on the Web, but being online all day is not possible.
Also, we prefer helpers to stay for a minimum duration of four weeks so as to allow time for a real exchange to take place.
The house is located in a beautiful area not far from the Pitons, in between the beaches of Choiseul, Piaye and Vieux-Fort.
Our hosts can also use the secluded beach 20 min walk away for swimming.
For waterfall lovers, the neighbouring parish of River Doree brags a silver-threaded stream which tumbles along at the bottom of a canyon 150 feet deep. A bridge, barely 20 feet wide, crosses it from side to side. If you stand on the bridge and drop a stone, several seconds go before you hear the splash as it hits the water.
Within walking distance also lies the Saltibus Waterfall Trail, a two-hour trek through a verdant, shady, rainforest at the end of which you will be rewarded by a swim in a series of waterfalls.
Further North, the pearl-black sand beach of Sabwisha offers the tranquility of the Caribbean sea next to the village of Choiseul.
On your way back, you could also visit the Maison créole, a charming little artifact museum.
Buses to Vieux-Fort and Soufrière pass quite regularly on the main road. The waiting time is shorter in the morning and in the evening though. There are no buses on Sunday and public holidays.
