Maintenance and General help at Eco Lodge, Museum & Farm in the Caribbean

We are looking for a volunteer or volunteer couple to help in exchange for room and board and small stipend for 2 - 6 months, anytime between March and November 2014. We are a family owned and operated business on the island of St. Lucia. Balenbouche Estate is a former sugar plantation which is charming and beautiful, with magnificent old trees and historic buildings, nature trails and 2 small beaches within walking distance. Our animals include cows, horses, dogs, cats, tortoises, many birds and other local wildlife.

Because our paradise also requires a lot of work and dedication, we sometimes take volunteers, usually outside of our main tourist season, which runs from December to April. During this time we do a lot of maintenance and construction, getting the property and business ready for the following season. The ideal volunteer will be positive, hardworking, practical, responsible, organized, clean, polite and discreet have a background and skills in a relevant trade (carpentry, construction, furniture restoration, electrical, plumbing, general maintenance, farming) as well as be prepared to do some gardening, cooking and general housework. Our volunteers generally work about 30 hours a week but the days and times are flexible. Depending on your skill level and contribution, we may be able to offer you a performance bonus.

Previous travel experience, especially to a developing country is a plus. We value good manners and a healthy, environmentally conscious lifestyle, and do not tolerate any alcohol or drug habits.

If you are interested, please send us a resume, cover letter and photo.
