Assignment Description:

My wife Veronica and I, Mark are blessed with owning and operating an off-shore private island eco-resort on the island of Eueiki in the Vava'u island group in the Kingdom of Tonga, South Pacific. We happily live year round on our island with our dog Rocky and our cats Shadow and Nacho. I am a boat designer and sea captain and my wife Veronica has many years of experience in the hospitality industry. We have had our resort for the past 17 years which consists of 8 traditionally built small "Fales" (Tongan word for house or bungalow). We are a seasonal business that specializes in “whale swim tours” from 1st of July to the 15th of October of each year. Please see our website

We are currently working on updating it.

We focus on nature, history, culture and sustainability. We love Tonga and we strive to promote its' beauty and its' unique eco-system of 56 islands within a 20 square mile area. We endeavor to make Vava'u, Tonga and our beautiful off-shore island resort a desired tourist destination for the future.

We want to take some time off and we are looking for a responsible, middle aged and healthy couple that have nautical skills to take care of our property while we take an approximately one to two months break overseas. Nautical skills include knowing how to drive an outboard 40HP aluminum boat

The assignment is to stay at the resort in one of our lovely fales and look after our property, pets, equipment and to help out and oversee the day to day chores on the island including going to town for supplies. Neiafu is the nearest town on the main island of Vava’u which is a 40 minute boat ride, hence the requirement for nautical skills. We plan on having another couple from overseas as volunteer part time workers in exchange for room and board during this time as well to help out with the daily chores whom will look after themselves.
