Server/Bartender Couple for Live On SWFL Private Island - Bokeelia, FL

Posted: 10/19/2020 - 7:00 am

We are looking for our first, LIVE ON seasonal teammates to start off our 2020-2021 season, positions available now through May/June and potential to stay on for superstars . The rent is low and the Island is a safe, beautiful, caring community....there is good money to be earned but will mostly be in November-May all things considered.

We are located outside of the Ft. Myers, FL area which would be the airport you would fly into if that is your preferred travel. We own Bocilla Marina at the North end of Pine Island which has a lot to park your car and features boat launch transportation both at no cost. Boat runs are several times a day 7 days a week, any after hours boat runs are by water taxi and cost about $ 100. Bocilla Marina is about a 20 minute boat ride to Useppa, a 15 minute drive to the closest store/banking, and about a 40 minute drive to the closest "city" attractions.

Housing is based on availability and currently we have room in our dormitory which has 5 rooms, most at $ 100 monthly. The dormitory is a vintage 100+ year old building above our reception center at our main marina, has a central kitchen with limited cooking ability and two full restrooms, the rooms are 10 x 10 furnished with a bed, dresser and a lamp. Rent includes all utilities and Wifi is typically strong enough to run streaming services. We would also like you to feel as comfortable as possible, so bringing a few special items from home is ok, whether that be photos, music, movies, or a laptop.

Employees enjoy a 40% discount on all food items as well as a 25% retail discount in our store which carries a limited amount of food and Useppa Merchandise. Kayak Rentals, Fitness Center, Pool/Jacuzzi, Tennis Courts, The local area is an amazing place with a local Bar Restaurant on another Island nearby, a state park with 5 miles of secluded beaches and two close by Islands with restaurants, etc....On your days off you may enjoy relaxing by our refreshing pool, jump in a kayak and explore the barrier islands or simply take in the beauty and history of our island paradise.

Food servers earn Florida Minimum hourly + $ 250-1250 weekly depending on business levels; the workweek is usually 35-40 hours..Direct deposit is also available. Summertime is our "off season", with our peak periods between November and May. We also are operating a small restaurant, the Tarpon Bar which is a beach style bar overlooking our Marina with about 80 seats, which operates as a restaurant seasonally. We do frequent group and special events.

Please think about "Island Life" and if it's for you......you may only leave the island every couple of weeks at times and there is a small group of staff (about 15 currently) who live on the Island and create the social offerings. Please get back to me with your level of interest, available start dates and why you would like this opportunity, positions are available tomorrow-I look forward to hearing from you....

We are renewing our search for re-opening service staff and have staff housing available on Island for a couple of select employees to be part of our summer team on Useppa. The Food & Beverage business as we know it has changed and we look forward to operating responsible operations as local and state government makes the decision to do so.

You must have a commitment to be part of a small Island community, to represent our business well in your on and off time on property, be a good resident and accept background and drug test screening, pre-employment.

The rewards are great for the right person, subsidized rent and expenses, a safe beautiful community with amenities available to enjoy and a driven and caring management team to support you in our service to guests.

We are not sure what the next year and beyond looks like but we greatly look forward to continuing to be the great private Island Club we are.

Looking for serious, knowledgeable applicants, please consider the situation and review our website before responding.

Thank You!
