About the workproject

We need 8 volunteers

We own Huelo Pt Lookout, a vacation rental/B&B situated on the gorgeous North Shore of Maui, Hawaii and have been here (and organic) since 1992. This side of the island is particularly beautiful, as it's the 'non touristy' side - but we're still close enough to pop into town for the conveniences. (We're about 20 mins out of Pa'ia, along the Hana Highway, then down a small gravel road to the ocean). Summer is our great weather season, and being in the sun and salt and wind of Hawaii is tough on our little cottages, so we're always seeking help with maintenance and construction/ restoration etc. So if you have construction skills - carpentry, painting, landscaping ... knowledge of power tools (and be able to use them!) ... we'd love to host you. 25 hours a week (but that can be flexible if you're highly skilled) - happy to host couples or singles. Accommodation is in an older house, an 'arrested remodel' we like to call it - but private bedroom, kitchen, bathroom etc so you won't be camping out. Fabulous ocean views, easy access to waterfalls etc. $150 security deposit ... just e mail me for an application ... dreamers@maui.net

I and my husband, Jeff (I have to find a pic!) have owned Huelo Pt Lookout since 1992. It's been totally organic since that time. We have a 4 bedroom B&B which consists of small cottages on 2 acres, with lush landscaping, fruit orchard and herb garden ... lots of weed whacking, lots of maintenance. I'm from Australia and was a speech therapist & radio announcer there. Here, I run the B&B, write poetry & scripts, and enjoy theatre improv. Jeff is a retired dentist - he specialized in treatment of phobic patience through hypnosis and counseling and still does a little of that.
