    In Valencia, Spain: workawayers welcome from September 1st, 2023 to December 22nd, 2023 and from January, 7th, 2024 to March, 12th, 2024.

    In Vitória, Brazil: workawayers welcome in August, 2023.

    We are a Spanish-Dominican family of 4. Mum and dad are uni professors, and our boy and girl are nearly 1 and 3 years old,respectively. We love meeting people from different places, enjoying nature, going to the beach or the mountain and taking family trips. We are also big music and dancing fans, and one of hobbies is to learn new languages.
    Hi! Me (Ana), my husband (José Luis), our 3 year old daughter (Yara) and our 1 year old son (Nilo) welcome you to our profile! We are a Spanish-Dominican family and currently live in a luminous and spatious penthouse in Moreres, which is near the seafront of Valencia and right opposite one of Valencia's main attractions, the City of Arts and Sciences, as well as close to some of the city's main green areas, the Turia River Bed Park. Our penthouse is part of a condominium which features a community swimming pool, a padel-tennis court, a gym and a social room. It is very well connected with the rest of the city by metro, tram and bus, as well as by bike: you can ride your own bike, like we do, or use the city's public bike rental system, Valenbisi.
    Valencia is a beautiful seaside city, the 3rd biggest in Spain, and has so much to offer.
    We are looking for someone to integrate with our family, help us with light house chores (we have a cleaner who comes once a week so those chores are mainly laundry, dish-washer duty, trash and/or cooking, and cleaning up after breakfast/dinner and after our baby eats) and help our daughter and son improve either of the languages we speak at home: English or Portuguese. Therefore, fluency in English or Portuguese is a must.

    We are an active and dynamic family, as well as very social. We enjoy family outings in the nature, cultural activities in the city, music, dancing, hiking, and sports.

    José Luis and me are university professors (our fields are Business Management and Applied Linguistics, respectively) so we are very busy and also very passionate for our profession.

    We can give you advice about many interesting spots in the area, and about cultural and social events you can attend, as well as tips about places to visit around Spain or even abroad, as we have extensive travelling experience. We love nature and sports (although we are now a bit limited with our daughter and our baby boy), and can show you beautiful hikes and places to explore.

    We'd love to share aspects of the Spanish and Dominican cultures and we would also love to cook some of tasty meals (José Luis is a great cook!). I'm vegetarian and the rest of my family eats mainly vegetables, fruits and grains. We are friendly and active, our daughter is very funny and kind and our baby boy is a sweetheart and always has a big smile on his face.

    You will be included in our social plans for the weekends if you want to join in, and even though they will be children-adapted, family-friendly events, we will try to think of interesting sights or activities for you.

    José Luis is a great cook so we can share delicious meals, which are mainly plant-based.

    Valencia is a must-see in the Mediterranean, it won't disappoint you!

  • Arbeit


    We are going to spend around 1 year on maternity/paternity leave but could really use a hand with light house chores and with our kids' language learning.

    The main help would be:

    1) We welcome help with light house chores (mainly hanging/folding laundry, dishwasher duties,taking the trash and recycling downstairs, helping with setting up and cleaning up breakfast/dinner before and after our baby eats (we follow the BLW approach) and/or cooking and with keeping the house tidy (e.g. encouraging our daughter to pick up her toys and help her and little Nilo do so) when our daughter is playing independently. We have a cleaner who takes care of the heavy cleaning once a week so only light chores are required. Also, for feeding our baby we are following a BLW approach, so we would very much welcome help with cleaning up after he eats. Finally, the workawayer should keep her room and bathroom clean and tidy.

    We are looking for a girl/woman who is active and energetic, tidy, organised and responsible, and who should ideally have experience working with children. We would like to welcome someone who is independent but who also enjoys blending in with our family. Of course you are welcome to leave on the weekends or on the agreed days to explore Valencia and the rest of Spain (Barcelona, Alicante...) but if you stay we expect some help around the house (maybe not 5 hours but what would be expected from any other member of the family - i.e. some help with putting the dishes in or out of the dishwasher, cooking or laundry, some time of playing with our daughter and son...).

  • Unterkunft


    You will have your own room with a single bed, some storage space and a "nearly private" bathroom that we might use occasionally when we are downstairs. We currently live in a beautiful, luminous and spatious two-storey penthouse in a wonderful newly-built condominium with a pool and different common areas which is located right opposite the City of Arts and Sciences and has impressive views to it. Our diet is mainly vegetarian. We have high-speed Wi-Fi. We hardly ever watch TV but we enjoy movies and have access to a very wide offer of both movies and TV shows via Amazon TV, etc. We are very conscious of energy and water saving. Even though we have air-conditionning we prefer not to use it, we try to have short showers, we use electricity (specially the oven) within reason, switch on one light at a time... so we are looking for someone who is comfortable with this style.

    Our current neighborhood, Moreres, is conveniently located opposite the City of Arts and Sciences and very close to the seafront as well as some of Valencia's main green areas: the Turia river-bed park (the longest one in Europe), the Albufera Natural Park and some nice beaches in nearby villages such as El Saler, Perelló and Pinedo.

    The workawayer will have her own private room with her own "nearly private" bathroom in our 2-storey penthouse. It is located in a condominium opposite the City of Arts and Sciences, and it has a community swimming pool, a gym, a padel-tennis court and a social room.

    Our penthouse is in a outstanding location in the gorgeous city of Valencia. It is also very well connected with the rest of the city with public transportation (metro/tram, bus and public bike rental). However, our favourite way to move around is by bike and we'd love to host travellers who also love biking. There is so much to do, see and explore in Valencia and around, and we can share information about the best places to visit.

    Please, bear in mind that we won't be in Valencia during the months of July and August. If you are interested in joining us in beautiful Vitória in Brazil, we'll be happy to share all the information with you.
