  • Description


    - Preffered skills: carpenter and construction help

    Are you ready to spend your time on the sunniest Croatian island? I am more than happy to host travelers from all over the world that are ready to experience a unique & authentic Dalmatian life.

    The work includes general help around the house and the garden, and some renovation work to keep the house looking good. This can include keeping the terrain in shape: cutting the grass and keeping the plants and the bushes looking great in the garden; and also help with building on a small scale so that the house maintains its full potential. Work inside the house will include cleaning and tidying and help with the shopping and cooking to keep us all fed during your stay.

    You will stay in the downstairs part of the house, which has its own apartment, kitchen and bathroom.

    I am currently learning Spanish, so I will be more than happy to practice it with you :)

    It has all the necessities you could need for your stay here. You will have your own kitchen equipped with a stove and an oven with an open plan living room and nestled in the other side of this space is a large bed which accommodates two people, underneath the air conditioning.

    You can slip out onto the private terrace facing the sea where you can take in the fresh smell of pine trees and enjoy the sounds of nature. If you're the sporty type, you can take advantage of the volleyball court located next to the house.
