    Description

    In February 2015 we started this family owned Bed and Breakfast in the countryside, near Quito's international airport. Since then, our idea has had a great success so now we need some help to run the place.

    The house is surrounded by a calm and nice environment (many bio farms around), away from the problems of the big city but close enough to all services, highways and even cinemas and big malls. Our facilities include a 24h available pool, soccer field, BBQ area, a mini lake, strawberry field and lots of fruit trees in a 5.000m property.

    Few minutes away there are some traditional towns like Yaruqui, Pifo, Tababela, Tumbaco, Cumbaya where you can experience the typical ecuadorian culture and traditions. We also are on the way to the amazon rainforest and the cities of the north side of Ecuador like Otavalo, Cayambe, Ibarra and Tulcán so you can easily visit those places on weekends.

    We are looking for highly motivated friendly talkative people to help us run the place. We prefer volunteers who are able to drive and have a valid driver license. English and spanish communicative skills are a must.

    House capacity is maximum 15 people and rush hour is at afternoon/night so most of the work takes action at that time.
    We expect 5 days a week volunteer work, we can organize an schedule for days-off depending on the number of guests per day.

    Chores may include housekeeping, pick-up and drop- off service to our guests, gardening and cleaning.
