  • Description


    Hello !
    We are a young healthy couple, with a nice log Cabin in Chilean Patagonia, close to Palena and Chaitén.
    GIRL/ Early thirties, yoga practitioner , nature lover, interested in NGO work, fashion, photography, hiking and gardening. Former fashion model and social worker in India.
    BOY/ Early forties, businessman and environmentalist, addicted to whitewater kayaking.
    Both hosts travel often.
    We do not run a business. Patagonia is our 2nd home and we come here on holidays, several months a year.
    Both nomads, schooled (Ivy league) in the US, Spain, France and Europe.
    Minimum stay two weeks please.
    No internet at the property, closest 25 km away.
    Please you should cook your own meals. Big comfortable kitchen provided.
    Mainly looking for (non hierarchical) house type of help, to work mainly with the GIRL.
    This is our first workaway experience. Apologíes in advance for any imperfections.
    Happy travels. Thanks for your interest.

  • Help


    Good attitude is the most important trait, as we can adjust workload to your skills.
    Ideal help sought with varnishing cabin, outdoor gardening work and household chores (cleaning, cooking)
    Practicing yoga a plus, but not required.
    Work Not complicated at all.
    Friends visit us often, so help with them is also appreciated.
    We do not like or accept drugs, sorry.
    We do not smoke but we have no problem with smokers/ outdoors.
    We are quite independent and like people with positive and easy going attitude.

    We love nature in all its forms.
