8 Awesome types of accommodation that you could be staying in on your next Workaway

While living and travelling around the world we’ve been fortunate enough to see some amazing places, amazing people and amazing food. But when it comes to accommodation we are shocked daily by the sheer amount of damn right awesome places there are to stay in the world. And some of them are even right here on Workaway ready and waiting for people like YOU to stay in. Here are 8 that have caught our eye recently:

1. A magical cave in Petra, Jordan

Petra is high on everyone’s bucket list. But is actually living inside a cave right this wonder of the world? It’s on ours now. This family have lived in a cave all their life and practise yoga, meditation and show tourists around their beloved hometown of Petra. In return for a few hours of help a day, you could become a real life bedouin.

2. A sailboat in Bahamas

This group of friends started their life with “dessert first” and got themselves a sailboat to dedicate their days to enjoying life and exploring Bahamas meeting interesting people, learning tricks and skills from the locals, snorkelling (lots of it) and watching the sunrise and the sunset every day. Hard life for some hey? But, wait, you can join them too and live on board their sailboat living the good life!

3. Among a vineyard and olive orchard

“You only live once but if you live right, once is enough…” is the quote this host tells us. And we think that living right is living among grapes and olives, eating the finest food and the finest wine. Get in touch with nature at this peaceful vineyard in Spain and know that life is exactly the way it should be!

5. In Finnish Lapland

We are talking Father Christmas, reindeer, snow and a lot of husky-sledging. Childhood dreams are coming true as we write this. And in return for living in Lapland, you will help look after the huskies. Remind us again why we aren’t there now?

6. A treehouse in Colombia

This one is for all the hardcore adventurers between you. If climbing up to your bedroom in a tree every night sounds like your kind of fun, then this “tree temple” has your name all over it. Help the owners create a spiritual sanctuary in a beautiful part of Colombia, that also has beaches, hikes and rivers waiting for just you.
