"Included in the job assignment is going on outings, lying on beach chairs, drinking wine in local taverns and other ordinary assignments found in a commercial beach and tourist environment," read a March ad for the position in Amelia. "In certain areas, receiving a full-body massage, testing drinks, snorkeling and book reading may be required."

Dejus said she applied for the position despite skepticism brought on by the ad's proximity to April Fools' Day.

"It's unbelievable, really. I am going to get paid for going on a dream vacation," she said.
