The month I spent at villa eshta was easily the best month of my life. I met the most beautiful people and lived in the most beautiful place. (Two minute walk to the beach). Walid is an incredible boss, he built this business and cares deeply about it. He has done an exceptional job creating his team. If you are selected to come to villa eshta consider yourself very lucky. The work is very easy mostly reception duties with a lot of time off. You will make so many friends here and feel like your part of a family. I could not recommend villa eshta and Walid enough!!!

Working at Villa Eshta is an once in a lifetime opportunity full of life changing experiences! Walid cares deeply about the staff, business and local community and you can see this in the day to day operations. The work is rewarding and very flexible, while also being in close proximity to everywhere in San Juan there is always something to do close by! I would fully recommend this adventure to anyone wanting to have an beautiful experience with beautiful people!
