This workaway is a homestay in a family environment, therefore we welcome enquires from NON-SMOKERS ONLY. We are looking for willing workers to help us out in any aspect of general maintenance, landscaping, planting, sanding, painting, garden maintenance, including weeding and watering, mowing, mulching; housework and ironing.

In return we will provide a comfortable private room with own bathroom, linen, bedding, pillows,towels and meals,plus wi-fi internet access, terms negotiable depending on hours worked etc. The expectation is 24 hours a week, with at least 2 free days but longer working days with more days off and flexible start/ finish times can all be negotiated. We offer stays of at least two weeks at a time. We work hard but are easy going and play fair! We are able to collect from the local bus station in Margaret River Town, less than 10 mins away. Town is 7km by road, or a 5km walk on bush trails. There is a strict NO SMOKING policy on the property.

Area: EnglandI am a single Male with 2 children. They mainly live away atm. One is still at University, and the other is taking a "gap" year after having just graduated. I am a Chartered Engineer by profession, but need to spend a significant amount of my time maintaining my largish house, and the land and outbuilding that go with it. An additional pair of hands might help me get on top of these jobs ! In return I would be happy to show my local "sights" to friendly, sociable, & educated Europeans for visits of arround 4 weeks or more. I would also be happy to assist volunteers to improve their English Language skills. They could join me on when I visit my friendly "Local Pub" , where they could meet and "chat" with some of the "locals". Please note, I can ,normally, only take one volunteer at a time and I will NOT host "smokers".
Area: SacatepequezI live on my own. This is my house. I also have projects at lake Atitlan where I'm building houses and starting community and permaculture projects. I travel a lot. One big reason is to visit my 9 year old daughter in the canary islands. I love meeting new people if there is a connect connection ( same frequency, inspiring, interesting in what they do, what they aspire to).
Area: Venta Valero / Alminidilla, Cordoba, AndaluciaAVAILABILITY FROM 12TH TILL 26TH OF SEPTEMBER- We are a Ricardo and Anton, a Dutch couple living together with our very friendly dog Yuran, wich is a Maltezer Bichon. Our official home base is Rotterdam the Netherlands. Ricardo (49) among others, travelled 10 years around the world mainly as a tour guide, but also lived in Bali en Thailand and had art gallery in Mallorca Spain. Now a day’s he’s a manager developing new services at an organisation for elderly care in Rotterdam. Anton (54) had various management jobs in catering & tourism, business services and Human Resource at the Dutch local government of Rotterdam. We both have a broad cultural and social interest. For a long time we dreamed of buying a landhouse in Spain. We found a landhouse exactly on the crossroad of three Spanish provinces ( Granada/Jaen/Cordoba) in a rolling green and lush environment. A place with Spanish beauty we like to share with friends and travellers. The house is in good condition, with all amenities, but dated and and (still) basic. The land wich has to become a garden (1500m2), contains almond, fig and olive trees, is situated on a gently sloping hill and is unimproved. Basically we like this land to become a garden and the main attraction of the spot help is here needed but experience in contructionwork in the house is also most welcome such as brickwork/ plastering/ painting /carpentry etc.
