Kip & Kaboodle
: Volunteers Wanted for our Country Hostel
We are a small hostel located between Mahone Bay & Lunenburg in Nova Scotia and close to many truly awesome beaches and hiking trails, farmers markets, whale watching, kayaking, sailing .. and only 1 hour from Halifax! We need somebody to help out for a few hours each day answering the phone, housekeeping and chatting with the guests. You should also be willing to assist cooking lobster (we'll teach you how to cook a lobster if you don't already know) and making our guests feel welcome when we're not around.
For one to three hours work each day (depending on how busy we are) we will give you a free bed for the night and use of a bicycle if you need one. There are lots of pubs, restaurants, cafes & shops nearby that are always looking for employees -- many of our past volunteers have worked in one of the nearby towns. It's a perfect opportunity to rebuild your cash levels!
We are looking for a responsible, outgoing person happy to chat and give advice as needed. Our house is separate from the hostel, and we have three kids in our house ages 3, 7 and 10, so if you don't like the sound of kids playing soccer in the back field or playing with fairies in the forest this might not be the position you're looking for!
Minimum one week, but longer stays are welcome!
