    Good Host
  • Description


    I live in a quiet area of Belfast(UK) close to the lovely Queens Uni & Botanic Gardens,shops & pubs.Its only 20 mins walk to the city centre........Its a small,comfortable terrace house,with wifi in Belfast

    I need help at different times with gardening , inside painting, cleaning, organizing both at my small home & another house possibly .

    If there is another helper you MIGHT be asked to share the bedroom.If you are female you would only be asked to share a bedroom with another female.
    You would receive accommodation & meals and you would be asked to help for 25 hours/week over 5 days with 2 days off. Also it may be possible to receive accommodation and pasta/rice/tea/coffee in return for helping 15 hours/ week. I am a veggie but you do not have to be to help here.

    You would get a chance to go sailing(May-early Oct) & hill walking ....
    Also Belfast is a good base to see our lovely nature & coastlines, the Giants Causeway, the Mourne mountains etc

    Normaly you can enjoy the endless Belfast free live music scene but difficult to find at the moment. You can go into the pubs at the moment but you usually have to buy some food. I have had volunteers before & have volunteered myself.I enjoy outdoor(cycle/hillwalk/sail) activities,music, the odd pint/glass of wine, meeting friends & I am a big animal lover! I volunteer at a local animal sanctuary sometimes.I owned & ran a Backpackers hostel for many years.

    Any questions just ask.....
