  • Description


    Good day! My name is Michelle and My wife is Heather. We have two young children who keep us active and on our toes. My wife Heather is in the US Coast Guard and I run our business. Here is where you come in... Myself and my kids will be leaving for several months during the summer. We run a charter business on a 48 foot Yacht as well as an airbnb rental in our home. With Heather working for the coast guard she often gets called in. So we would use your help with the guest rental and picking guests up from the airport and possibly getting the room ready (we would pay you cash for this). If we take guests on a charter we would use you as a crew member, unless you have a captains license then we can use you as a relief captain. In between guests it would be odd jobs around the house or boat.

    The guest rental portion is easy. You may need to make the bed and do some cleaning. We have had hundreds of guests in our home and have had no crazy messes or problems. If you are curious I am more than willing to send you the link so you can see it and the reviews. They are very respectful because they are in our home we do not attract they party type.
    The Charter boat is busy and will be where most of the work will be done.
    The house work would be basic upkeep, maybe some painting, yard work, etc...

    What else ...

    If your car insurance covers you driving your "friends" car you are welcome to use our car when not being used. I would imagine you would do 2-3 hours a day of work and the remainder of your time is for you to go explore. There are some beautiful beaches like Sapphire Beach and Meagans Bay. You could take the ferry over to St John and check out Maho or any number of beautiful beaches there as well. We have paddleboards you can use as well as snorkle stuff.
