Hello friend :) and welcome to our homestay,
We are four young female friends from three different places in Viet Nam (Saigon, Hanoi and Ninh Binh). Few years ago we have fallen in love with Hoi An and decided to move in. We love to travel and make friends. With a warm hug, we welcome you to Hoi An to explore Hoi An and find your way.
Our home stay is located in a tranquil little vegetable village, called Tra Que, 15 minutes cycling from the centre of the ancient town of Hoi An and 5 minutes cycling from the beach. Our two puppies Nau and Den love to run around, dig holes and steal random objects – it takes a while to gain their trust, but if you try they will love you 😊.
Every morning we serve breakfast to our guests, prepared either from the ingredients from our garden or bought from the early local market. All the food is prepared with a lot of passion and love and is never the same – we love to be creative and make tasty food from simple ingredients we have.
Our home stay has got a few rooms and we have guests coming from all around the world. Because we also love travelling and we know how it feels like to miss home when you are away, we are always trying to make our guests feel at home. We run various free/donation based activities such as: cycling food tour, simple leather workshop, camping, renting bikes, yoga, etc …
We are looking for a volunteer who can can come and stay to help us with taking care of the home stay 6 days a week (working on weekends might be needed) between 8:00 – 14:00 (time might change upon agreement). The tasks will be welcoming guests & check in/out, sometimes preparing rooms (when the staff is off), chatting with the guests, helping in the garden, simple maintenance/manual work (building stuff from eco-friendly materials), run free bike food tours, practice speaking English with us, …
We also need help with social media, hospitality management and brainstorm creative projects. So if you happened to know or are experienced in this field, we would love to learn from you!
*Please be noted that we are not vegan place and please consider carefully before apply if you can flexible your dietary while staying with us. Thank you!

Besides, we are super open to any new crazy ideas to make out place more fun for the guests and also for us (and for you when you stay here of course!)
