  • Description


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

    Whether you has ben finished your university graduation, and you are looking some help, to do the professional intership, and or you are doing yourCourse Conclusion Work, in the engineer area or similar; I can help you to do that as well.

    I was ownering of one engineering enterprise for almost 15 years, and had many students finishing their studies with me.

    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.

    Important know: 1. I do not smoke. 2. I do not drink alcohol.
