  • Descrição


    I own a little jungle home stay on Langkawi island. I am very passionate about off grid and sustainable living.

    I have only two rooms, an outdoor kitchen, a tree house, a huge courtyard. My living room is actually under the bamboo tree with recycle tables and chairs.

    My guests would sit around at the open space, BBQ, singing under the stars. You can bring your books to read on the hammock under the trees. Use the open space to do yoga, Tai Chi or meditation under the sky.

    I am growing herbs, fruits and vegetables. I have free roaming chickens around. It is my little farm and animal sanctuary.

    As my establishment is small, I am basically doing a "one-man show" most of the times. I am the full time employee. I am doing all the cleaning, setting up beds, gardening, cooking, laundry and maintenance work.

    I have four lovely dogs who are the main attraction to my animal loving guests. They too 'work' for me to keep the guests entertained.

    I have daily visitors sometimes just for food and drinks. I would serve them under the bamboo tree.

    I am looking for workawayers who are adventurous, not afraid of tough work, getting dirty, responsible, independent and passionate about the work that I am doing to assist me for MINIMUM A MONTH.

  • Acomodação


    Tree House. A 8 feet x 8 feet small tree house with a 4 feet balcony on the rock hill over seeing greenery of the jungle. The height is 8 feet above the ground.

    It is breezy and constantly you can see birds, monkeys, squirrels running around. A mattress or two (if couple). A table fan, lights and mosquito net.
    A separate bathroom and toilet down the rock hill.

    You will need to be adventurous and be prepared to stay alone in the nature. I am not staying there all the times. There are snakes, scorpions, geckos, mosquitoes and other wild animals and bugs around.
