  • Description


    Do you wanna spend the summer on the sea coast, to be part of a small family business in the tourism field and to get to know a different culture? You're welcome in our house, our family and our business!

    My wife and I are running a small guest house in COSTINESTI, a popular resort on the Black Sea Coast. It's a friendly location, positively reviewed on different booking websites for its staff and cleanliness.

    Here we like to treat our clients and our staff with respect, care and joy...and we'd love some people that share the same attitude. We're looking for enthusiastic, responsible, friendly and proactive people to help us offer a pleasant experience to our guests and keep up a good atmosphere in the house.
    Who wouldn't be a good fit? Party animals, messy, introverted or passive people.

    What could you get in return? Healthy food, good accommodation, insights in our business and our everyday life, a place to experience and practice things. You'll be part of our daily life practically (we'll work together, we'll eat together, we'll have fun together).

    What you can do in your spare time?
    Laying on the beach, swimming in the sea or in the nearby lakes, doing water sports, treating your bones or your skin with mud from the salty lake, clubbing... or exploring the area (you can have my bike)
    I would be happy to join you for most of the above activities.

    About us? We are enthusiastic, trustworthy, open minded, demanding and We love working with people. Come and see!
