the isolation and peacefulness of the PurePod. Forward bookings are very strong so we are looking for another housekeeper to join our team of three. This is a role that is slightly different from normal! Along with our guests you will get to enjoy a 600m walk in through bush to get to work. We will train you in cleaning the PurePod.
Duties include:
● Changing linen and towels ● Washing dishes
● Cleaning floors and windows ● Transporting food (sometimes)
As a luxury destination there is a high standard of work required.
