Since I moved to the island 7 years ago I am arranging 2 tiny houses by the sea in a beautiful bay called Stoncica. I am working on the surroundings, chopping the bushes, building dry walls, renovating the paths. I learned some construction and wood work last few years so my projects are mostly DIY and i am looking for handy or even better skilled people.
The weather does not really allow us to work outside until mid february so this winter I will be actually looking for PET SITTING. I have 2 cats and a dog. They get the very special treatment and attention like many people dont. :) And I would like you to come few days sooner so you can all get used to each other and see if we get along. They really mean the world to me so, i expect people to treat them as they would treat their own friend or a child ;)
If you come for pet sitting you will be settled in town of Vis in my home while i will be leaving the island for few days.
Im looking for a tidy person, who would love to spend some quiet time on the island in the town of Vis in my cosy home. While i am on the island we would probably go to the bay on daily basis and do some tasks there too. So i prefer handy, skilled and strong people that are used to solitude and some heavy work.
Next spring I want to make a pergola, plant more trees and make some garden beds, lay tiles in the outdoor bathroom and many other different tasks.

Help is mostly outdoor so you can enjoy a really beautiful nature. The island itself is just beautiful to see, hang around in the wild, meet some other local people.
During the winter I live in town of Vis but I still drive to the bay and do the work there. The tiny houses are distanced about 7km from town and then another 10 minutes walk from the parking. So drinking water and all the other things (food, material..) needs to be brought along. The water in the houses is from a wale. I always ask my volunteers to be aware when using water and other resources, to keep the place tidy and carefully use things like tools, house equipment...
You also need to be strong and ready to carry stuff most of the time. We might have to carry stones and other load, chop the bushes, mix cement, plant trees and do some other construction and DIY work. Therefore I wish to host people that already know how to do stuff and people with some skills are more then welcome. You also have to be used to live with nature and meet all kinds of animals, mice, spiders, wasps, bees and other insects. There are no poisoned animals on the island though.
When asking for animal care I prefer someone who has experience with all kinds of animals and who understand animal nature because my dog does not accept all the people. I guess they have to have a certain calm, confident and stable energy .
Some of the tasks:
- pergola construction
- planting trees and gardening
- chopping bushes
- repairing a stony path and bringing stones
- building dry walls
- mixing cement and making concrete stairs and shower
- puting tiles
- constructing a storage, painting wood
You will be sleeping in the bay in one of the secluded tiny houses or in town of Vis at my parents comfortable holiday house. Saving water is very desirable and I ask people to take a good care of the place they live in and keep it tidy.
Before we come together I usually talk with my volunteers about some other details by whats app. For example about the food and routines we have. I provide one vegetarian or vegan meal per day on the day of work. The rest of the food we can individually bring to the house and share. There are some basics already in the house (like oil , viniger, spices...).
On the day off you can do whatever you like (hike, visit some beach or another town Komiža, bike,...). Sometimes, if i have time i can join you and show you around too.

Sara not only welcomed me to this paradise but also made a point of introducing me to the whole island!
Thank you so much for everything you've done for me and I wish you all the best!
we are here and waiting for you to visit again :) The first time was beautiful but the second is gonna be fantastic :) as we already know how it all works out for both of us. One is a morning - and one an evening person, eating good food and just listening to the music is good enough for us ;) Thank you for your help and the dry wall
thank you so much for the time with you and Jolie, Charlie and Pika! Especially thanks to Jolie (her sweety dog) for having warmed my feets in the first night ;)
yes, it´s a paradise, and somehow absolutely different from other islands I visited before in Croatia. A nice funny mix between croatian and italian is spoken there to some
i miss you guys and hope to be able to come back soon!
courageous. She is discovering and learning about life and doing really good. :) see you soon <3
