  • Description


    Before i've decided belongs to the WA, i've read the Workaway Guide for get to know, how it works (First instance it is culture exchanging, scambio culturale).

    I work like engineer and take care of the houses for renting in vacation seasons!

    Why am i here?
    I think to receive host and help!
    Because we practices sports!
    Because We are a family.
    Because we love hosting people from the other side of the world! :)

    Working like teacher and engineer, i got very good skills to pass on the others.

    Almost every weekends we have Basic Sail Classes! This opportunity can give good skills, for people wishing to join a sailing crew, in regata around the world.

    We are developing others amazing experience to our guests like diving and Oceanic Sail School (coming soon).

    See you at our beach!

    Good Winds!
    We have some tasks to do at my rentable house - some maintenance work like painting, repairs, gardening, etc... everything very feasable and without stress. Everyday we can do something before having fun!

    \ Our past hosting history!
    I wanna improve my french as well!....and speaking in english!
    PS: change in your mind Surf for Sail ...Please... i did not have Sail's option to set! :) ... even though, in our local, we have a small surf school close here as well!

    I think that is enough ... and we hope you keep in touch using the cellphone "by whats", while you are coming!

    O que acontece no nosso ambiente de trabalho e convivência, é que não temos uma configuração parecida com um hostel, ou hotel ou uma pousada, aonde as atividades são mais formais, com horas bem determinadas, aonde o faturamento (lucro), normalmente é o objetivo maior do empreendimento.
    O que esperamos dos voluntários que venham estar conosco, é que eles mesmos sempre façam um balanço entre o que recebem e oferecem de trabalho, pois não usamos de nenhum controle rígido, ou muitas regras ou formalidades.
    Deixamos fluir os trabalhos normalmente e nunca exigimos mais do que damos em troca.

    What happens in our work environment and coexistence is that we do not have a hostel-like configuration, or hotel or hostel, where activities are more formal, with well-defined hours, where revenue (profit) is usually the objective of the enterprise.
    What we expect from the volunteers who come to be with us is that they always make a balance between what they receive and offer of work, because we do not use any rigid control, or many rules or formalities.
    We let jobs flow normally and we never demand more than we give in return.
    But: Although we live on the beach! We are always working and improving our installations, to receive tourists, and make a few money, to pay the bills and taxes.
    Case your plans are doing only tourism, our hosting, will not be the ideal place for you!

    Mas: Apesar de morarmos na praia! Estamos sempre trabalhando e melhorando nossas instalações, para receber turistas e ganhar algum dinheiro, para pagar as contas e os impostos.
    Caso seus planos sejam apenas turismo, nossa hospedagem não será o local ideal para você!
    Also: We hope the volunteers do the housekeeping of place, before they have leave the private chalet we have offered them!

    Também: Esperamos que os voluntários façam a limpeza do local, antes de deixarem o chalé particular que lhes oferecemos!
    Important know: 1. I do not smoke. 2. I do not drink alcohol.

    Some times we don´t do the lunch time, because we are sailing or in some long we eat a good dinner!!!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our helpers can use the free time to do the rides, stay on the beach, surf, sail, ride by bike, use the internet, sleep, and do some local traveling by bus or by car together us! ...because we are almost in front of the beach and it is easy to take the road!

    I prefer that WAs volunteers, do not get involved, with the customers that are renting my 3rd house.
