A homely and welcoming B&B in the Tigre Delta, in the green, on the water
This is the Deal
We are a small B&B, 4 rooms, in the Tigre Delta, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. The guests come here (mostly in the weekends) to relax from the big city.
We want to be a welcoming place, personal, informal, not an anonymous hotel. People should feel at home, relaxed here.
Tasks are running the B&B in practical sense: preparing the rooms (changing the sheets), doing the laundry, serving breakfast, cooking the other meals for ourselves and the guests, dishes, general cleaning of the common areas (kitchen, living, 2 bathrooms), maintaining the garden (lawnmowing, tending the small vegetable garden), making jams, making food to be freezed, small construction and repairing activities. Whatever else is needed or what you like to do.
La Casona del Rio is a B&B. We provide the 3 meals, but not snacks, alcohol, etc, which you can buy next door, as our neighbour has a small shop.
we request some 4-5 hours works per day, which you should fill in by yourself, we are not checking ;) In the weekends it will be a bit more maybem when there are guests, and during the weekdays it is more relaxed, and you will have more free time, to relax, go to tigre, or use the kayaks, walk, fish, read, or whatever you like
we have good wireless internet and a spare pc to use.
