Come to the Austrian Alps and help at my guest house.

my name is Thijs (originally from Holland) and since 2006 I am the owner of an apartment house in the most beautiful valley in the Austrian Alps. The house is beautifully located in Bad Gastein in a car free zone and in the middle of nature. We offer 8 apartments in different sizes. In total we offer place to 40 guests. Some guests also order breakfast but most of them make their own breakfast.

I offer a unique opportunity for people with a wish to have their own b&b sometime in the future. A lot of people have the dream to start a b&b, but they never got the chance to test it what it really is like. Buying a b&b or renting a b&b and starting up your business costs a lot of money and energy. I know many examples of people who did it and who were dissappointed because the dream was not like the reality. Luckily I also know a lot of examples of people who prepared the new adventure very well and succeeded to live the dream.
In this situation there is not something like working hours or an inflexible time table with fixed working hours. Every day is different and it is not to predict how next day will be. You take over the responsibility to run the house in a team with 2, 3 or maximum 4 participants with the same dream. The guests are going to be your best friends and you are going to offer them the best service that they do not expect. You have to be ready for that challenge. Are you?

I am looking for helpers coming winter season who want to stay in the Alps a whole season (approx. Dec. 15th until Easter).

Things to do:

Check in and out of the guests
Prepare breakfast
Making beds
Hiking tours with guests
General maintenance
Satisfy the guests!

I am looking for helpers with a dream. I offer an independent and unique opportunity to run an apartment house in a beautiful 2 season touristic area in the Austrian Alps. Under my supervision you learn all ins and outs and you will find out if your dream can be reality. Some of my ex-helpers are now actually owners of a b&b themselves!
You get a weekly reimbursement for buying food and you cook yourself in our fully equipped kitchen.
I offer a 4wd small car for doing groceries.

Do you have a dream to be owner of a b&b in the future and do you want to find out if this really is what you want?
Are you ready for this challenge?
Did you ever dream about working in the Austrian Alps?

I am looking forward to all reactions and offers!

You must be service minded and be able to work in a team. You get a lot of responsibility.

I prefer life experienced (older) people who speak German and English. You need a drivers licence B(E).

Bad Gastein is a town filled with nature, art and beautiful buildings and is very attractive for active tourists and artists.

It will be approximately 4 hours of work per day, so you have a lot of freedom. You can offer the guests some activities like hiking tours, yoga lessons or massage or just use your time to explore the beautiful mountains.

There is always something to maintain in the house or around the house or maybe you can instruct yoga or something like that, so you can make some additional money. I am open for all your suggestions.

I offer a private 2-room apartment with balcony and private bathroom. It is big enough for 2 - 4 persons. You possibly share it with other helper(s).
