  • Help


    Some or any of the above depending on our needs and your interests and skills. Also occasional house caretaking duties. We like our workawayers to have some practical interests and skills and we enjoy helping foreign language speakers improve their English. We need help with day to day house cleaning, bed making, serving guests, etc.. Also outside there is work with the grounds and some help with basic maintenance could also be useful.
