Hedonisia Hawaii is NOT a traditional tourist establishment so our policies are a little different. Weekly/Monthly Guests and Virtual Volunteers are considered part-time community members. Longer stays are more affordable because guests complete one Community Support day of 3 hours per week. a cleaning/weeding volunteer work shift
Many Eco-tourists actually want to do something useful while on holiday. Having one work shift a week gives them a great way to contribute to the community and yet have lots of time to enjoy the island.
As a result, the Community Support Shift has had overwhelmingly positive feedback. Before, visitors often felt like ordinary 'hotel' guests. Guests are part of the community with one work shift per week.
Thursday is the default Community Support Shift for Weekly or Monthly Guests. However, we can make custom arrangements for guests who have special deals when it comes to their support shifts.
A volunteer work shift usually consists of cleaning or weeding. We are also open to work suggestions! For example, someone who is a carpenter might suggest a carpentry project for their community support day.
Guests who pay nightly rates are not required to do a community support day. However, they are welcome to pitch in on a project if they so desire!
Community Support Shifts are on Thursday starting at 9:30am and are 3 hours long.
Some Guests may not want to work at all during the time they are here and we understand that. After all, we live in paradise. A Community Support Day is valued at $20 per person. So if you don't want to work you can simply pay the fee and then you can completely relax into the soothing lush jungle of Hedonisia!
