The Experience

Hey! We need help assisting in both household duties and outside chores: cleaning, making beds, laundering, pressing, helping with kids and cooking. Outside jobs relate mainly to looking after chickens, ducks, dog, maintaining the grounds and garden, weeding and looking after veggies and the poly tunnel. Your daily routine of 5-6 hours is divided into a series of time chunks in order to maximise your help exactly when we need it.

Definitivamente a pior experiência de todas que já tive! Resumindo: me colocaram em uma casa de madeira fria e sem banheiro, onde não tinha acesso a sanitário e chuveiro. Condições precárias para residência. Detalhes me mandem mensagem no particular.

So pleased we have the right to reply. Your review is not only incorrect but blatant lies. We explained everything to you very clearly and you had options for bathroom and shower. You came directly from a climate where the temperatures was 46 degrees - to the Highlands of Scotland - what exactly did you expect? This is our summer and temperatures are normal here for this time of year. The cabin is insulated and you had the fire on so it was like a sauna when I came to see you there. You left with no notice after just three days and Liliana doing only 5 hours work because we were empathetic to your long distance travel. We explained the reasons why temporarily everything was a bit chaotic and if you had tried to understand our business and stayed for longer you would have a much better understanding of how not only business works, but what customers needs and expectations are as well as the very high standards we set. They are the most important - not you and not us. We gave you spotlessly clean accommodation which has been used without complaint by many previous helpers and volunteers without any complaint. You left it in a total mess - complete with empty beer cans, cigarettte butts, suitcases with clothing and your soiled underwear. Nice!! A complete lack of understanding, commitment and willingness to learn - interested only - repeat only - in your needs and not to satisfy any of ours. We contacted your previous host hotel in India and were told that you were even worse there - not willing to listen to instruction, nor to work and were drinking and very demanding of them - and in the end - you did a disappearing act before your time was complete, the same as you did with us. Any potential hosts beware this couple as it looks like they only want what is best for them and cannot discuss issues but choose to 'run away' from any problems. Bad attitude and poor collaboration with your hosts.
