Volunteers will stay in one of our volunteer houses with bedrooms sleeping 2 - 6 people. All houses are facilitated with electricity, hot water, a kitchen, one or two toilets, a bathroom with a shower, beds with linen (no towels). Male and female volunteers will share rooms unless otherwise requested. Upgrades to private single or double rooms are available at extra cost.
Volunteers are responsible for keeping their own room and volunteer house tidy. Once a week your linen will be changed, however the cleaning lady will keep the common areas clean 3 times a week. The volunteer houses are at walking distance from shops, restaurants, entertainment, bus stops and the beach. The volunteer accommodation has a pool. Accommodation can be upgraded to private rooms for an additional cost.
