We are a kiwi couple with a small mountain Lodge in Hakuba. We love the outdoors (which is why we have chosen to live here!) and have recently brought our lodge so that we can enjoy the amazing mountains, lakes, rivers and community that we now live in. We're currently looking for friendly helpers that are keen to assist us in running the lodge (house keeping etc).
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Hakuba is a wonderland of nature a and outdoor activities. In the summer/autumn there is mountain biking, hiking, rivers and lakes to enjoy. The winter it's a mecca for skiing and snowboarding. We live down a friendly street with close contact with our Japanese neighbours. We are an easy going couple that are keen to share our home and local knowledge with like minded and helpful travellers (we are travellers and have done workaway ourselves in the past, so we get what you're up to).
We're needing someone who is happy to help out with house keeping tasks (making beds, cleaning bathrooms etc.) and liaising with our guests. If the lodge is quiet/few bookings, there may be gardening or other odd jobs around the house to do. Good English language is a must, Japanese language would be extremely helpful!
Own bedroom with plenty of space. Can have single or double bed. We provide breakfast and will have evening meals together (we'd love to take turns cooking with our workaways).
There are some bikes here that helpers can use. We're happy to pick you up from Hakuba station or Hakuba bus terminal. We're also easy walking distance to echoland Main St which has convenience store, restaurants and bars. In winter there is a free bus service to the resorts.
