The Experience

Our 60 acre eco lodge, heritage site and farm has 5 guest cottages and a 180 year old plantation house which need to be repaired and upgraded on a regular basis. We typically do this in the off season from April to December. We are looking for someone primarily skilled in building and any kind of wood work - carpentry, framing, furniture making etc. Experience in electrical, plumbing, small engine and power tool repair is also a plus.

This was my first time volunteering abroad and I could not have asked for a better experience. I was treated like family and was fully integrated in a lot of activities, meals and just general hangouts.

The workload was reasonable and the hours were very flexible. I worked on a couple of different websites including some of their friends'.

There is a very relaxed vibe on the estate with lots to discover (including a cool yoga barn, an old sugar mill and two beaches on property). I had a nice private room in the main house.

I would love to come back one day. Definitely recommended!
