  • Descripción


    Hi we are Becky And Mahe living on Lifuka Island in Ha'apai, Tonga. We are a Tongan/ British free spirited and fun loving family and looking for different people or possibly a couple to help us get sorted as we are just starting a new tourism related business.
    *We are looking for a builder or someone who is experienced in construction
    *An architect or someone who can help draw some plans for a simple but stylish house or something more on a beautiful deserted beach
    *A computer wizz! Or at least someone who can help me set up a website for our new business and help me with marketing.
    *A keen gardener - We’re hoping to plant some vegetables, put a fence up and plant some flowers.
    *A teacher to follow a western curriculum or at least help out with our 3 daughters Bella 8, Leila 7 and Lili 5. (They also go to the local school so this won’t take up all your time).
    We love people of all nationalities provided you are a happy to embrace the local culture which is very simple and rustic. We are trying to improve the girls skills in reading, writing, maths and science so they can fit into a western school easily should we ever leave Tonga.

    (couple welcome)

    You will learn what life is like on a pacific island and learn about the Tongan Polynesian culture. You will live close to or on one of the worlds most beautiful sandy beach's which we love to visit. You can learn to snorkel, fish, cook Tongan food, speak the language and share this beautiful place that we live with all it has to offer. If you're here during the peak season you will have the opportunity to swim with humpback whales which can be seen from the beaches all around the island!

    We are looking for people with a variety or at least 1 of the following skills...
    A carpenter/ plumber/ builder.
    An architect or someone who can draw house/ building plans (think beach hut/house).
    Someone with experience of boats who can help sanding and repainting our boat.
    A keen gardener to get a vege garden started, put up a fence and plant some pretty things!
    A computer wizz or someone who can set up a website and help us with marketing.
    A qualified teacher to help educate our children following a syllabus probably from the UK (mainly English, maths and science). Aside from the basic academic teaching we want our children to be educated spiritually and this could include something like swimming, meditation, a martial art, yoga, or anything that would enhance their well being. We are very open minded with this but we believe that spiritual development is important. Our oldest daughter is 9 we also have a 7 and 6 year old. 
    We can provide accommodation and meals and will share cooking and washing up duties. Unless you want to cook your own food and we can provide a small allowance.
    We would also be interested in someone who speaks Tongan although this is not at all necessary or expected. 
    As it is a remote island and there are is a variety of help we need help with we feel that this position may be suited to a couple. It is a fantastic opportunity for the right person/ people.

  • Alojamiento


    Depending which island you are staying on a small private house with a shared bathroom in a house next door (with the family) or a tent on a remote island paradise with no roads, power or village.

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    Time off can be spent walking around the island, swimming in tropical blue waters, snorkelling, reading a book, meeting the locals, going to a cafe or bar, going to church, drinking Kava, diving, paddle boarding, kayaking, exploring neighbouring islands, etc.
    From July- October you get humpback whales which come to the warmer waters of Tonga to breed and give birth. It is one of the few places in the world where you can actually swim with these majestic animals and it is an absolute privilege to do this. My husband and I are a skipper and a guide for this activity so we would hope to be able to take you out!
    Unfortunately due to the remoteness of the location it is difficult to get a variety of food here so we prefer people who don't have special dietary requirements.
