This is not yout typical house-sitting gig!

Do you love gardens and gardening? Whether you're a retiree seeking to keep active or a career-mobile person looking to take a break from the fast paced world, try volunteering at a private botanical garden on the beautiful Caribbean island of Nevis, while also relaxing and enjoying the fresh air exploring the great outdoors and mountain peak on this naturally beautiful sland.  We've got the right gig for the adventure seeker in you.

The island is intimate, tropical and has both beaches and mountain areas to explore.  The Garden is a privately funded labor of love with no subsidies, hence we work on a limited budget.  We need skilled and unskilled volunteers to keep up with landscaping and infrastructure maintenance.  

We will provide private room accomodation with shared kitchen, transport to the Gardens from another property where we house our volunteers, a 20-minutes walk from the Gardens.  We'll even provide lunch from our Thai restaurant on premises on days worked when we are open.  Length of time volunteering is flexible but we require a minimum 4 days/8 hours or 5 days/6 hours a week.  We pay for all utilities and provide 24-hour internet service.

Couples or singles welcomed!  No prior experience necessary, just willing hands.

FYI, for those who are pet lovers, we also have our amazing friendly dogs, cats, a goat and parrots within the residence and Garden premises.

If you're adventurous and would like to try something different from the norm, please get in touch for more information.  

Hope to hear from you!
