Cottage guest coordinator

Looking for another superhero to join us

Are you charming, organised and a FAB socialiser?  Do you enjoy getting to know people - listening & engaging with ‘em?  Are ya sweet as a bee charmer, while also being an organisational whiz?   Do you find socialising (whether in person or over the internet/social media) as simple as going for an evening stroll? Great, let’s get to know each other ...

We’re a small, close-knit group that work together to rent out all year 'round, our beautiful, family owned & adored, vacation cottage in Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. 

We’re in need of another superhero to engage wholeheartedly with potential guests over the phone and internet.  Simply put, we need you to be the charming person who answers potential guests’ questions, uses your organisational prowess to book out the cottage for them, and then lets the rest of us know what’s happening, when.

You’ll also keep us motoring on social media, help out with back-end guest coordination (using google spreadsheets & documents), post cottage advertising & marketing, and generally give a hand with some wicked business development that comes from the heart.

We’re different. Both in the way that we operate and what we offer to our guests, so if you love people and enjoy work that adds real zest to other people's lives, you’ll love working with us :)

We’re looking for someone full-time who’s able to work independently from home and to respond to people faster than small-town gossip.  Our busiest times are from Sunday afternoons to Tuesday evenings so enjoying flexible working that includes weekends and evenings in EST (Eastern standard time zone) is essential.   You, however, can be located anywhere as long as you have internet access - yaaaaaay.

You’ll rock at this role if you’re:

In exchange for arriving with a smile & enjoying your job, you’ll get good pay which also includes some heartwarming extras like meals out with your loved ones, wacky & wonderful experiences such as go-karting and roller-skating, and your very own cottage getaway with a dozen of your favourite peeps :)

Interested?  Great.  Show us!  All ya need to write in your cover letter is: "I’d rock at this because…” and then tell us the greatest quality you feel you possess to excel at being the Guest Coordinator for our cottage :) Hint: if you’d like a call back, be sure to listen to the tone of this posting and show us what yer made of!

(Sorry but applications that don’t answer the question won’t be considered.  This is our standard practice to filter out folks who respond with canned cover letters without actually paying attention to what we're looking for.  We’re different and we’re looking for someone who’s equally passionate about being different :)

All the best,
Laura & the rest of the cottage posse :)

Life is bigger with wicked work
