Work Exchange Program

Just a couple more days left to apply for our Work Exchange Program this summer & fall!

Each year we accept applications from December 15th through April 15th for positions starting May 1st through October. For those unfamiliar, our exchange program allows a person to work (30 hours per week) in exchange for lodging and a 40% discount at our Maho General Store and Restaurant. What a deal!

We do require a minimum stay of one month, or as we're forced to enjoy Maho and St. John for at least one month! Often times we hire full-time staff from those in our exchange program, so if working here full-time was of interest then this is your ticket!

Be aware that you would be working at times in high heat (summer temperatures range from 90 to 95 degrees) and high humidity. All our tent cottages are connected by staircases starting at sea level and going up the hill side several hundred feet. The no-see-um's (a variation on the sand flea) can be a major annoyance to those who have a reaction to their bites. This program is not recommended for anyone with health conditions, which may be exacerbated by strenuous work in a hot climate.

If you've never been to Maho, if you're looking for a plane ticket to buy with all that tax refund money, or if it's been a long time since you've visited us here at Maho then send us an application really soon!
