We are in the middle of a renovation project in Torre del Mar, 30 kms east of Malaga.
We are looking for a workawayer to finish some rooms with painting and gardening etc. Painting experience is essential. You will have your own room and a mountain bike to use to go to town or the beach.
There are numerous other projects for workawayers with the right skills.
We are also looking for someone to help build a wooden patio terrace in the upper house which is part of my brothers family project. There is 3 bedrooms available for workawayers at any given time
There is a water tank and solar collectors to put up. Plumbing all in place just the frame and panels to put up.
There are a Rejas (Ironwork) that need glossing
Cupboards painting and doors fitting.
Pool that needs cleaning
Tiling & Plastering
Installing surface mounted conduit.
The property is 500m2 which includes 3 homes and a swimming pool and 2 large patios and is a 15-minute walk away from town. We have various projects to do throughout the property. The project will end up as a digital nomad centre with cinema, gym and games area and a vending area for drinks and snacks but that is a year to 18 months down the line. At the moment it is a large dwelling that needs some specific work done. We are reforming the property and if you can paint and decorate and want to be part of the project drop us a message and lets chat.
I am in a wheelchair I will need help with some of the hosting duties. The place is big and plenty of comfortable spaces for you to relax in in your spare time. We are in a great location the views are beautiful and sunrise is always stunning to watch, we are in the countryside with plenty of walks all around but we are also close to town. There is a mountain bike which you can use and the beach is a 10 minute ride.
We are situated a 15 minute walk from Torre del Mar where there is good bus connections to Malaga, Nerja, and Granada etc. There is also a bus stop at the bottom of our road which goes to Malaga. If you like to spend some time sightseeing we have Granada (1.5hr), Malaga (30mins), Marbella (1hour 45 mins), Rhonda (2 hrs) Seville (3hrs), and Cordoba (1.5hrs) away by bus.
We are fully equipped with kitchen, dishwasher and bathrooms etc we also have a laundry room & washing machine we have high speed internet throughout the property
I work as a web developer but during the next few months we will be concentrating on adding the finishing touches to the project. We eat a general mediteranean low fat diet with a lot of salads, pastas, rice dishes but also like pizzas, curries, soups and stews etc I don't drink or smoke but if you wish to, feel free to smoke on the patio/terraces. Age is not a problem as with it comes knowledge and skills.
I thank you for taking the time to read through our project and hope you come by and stay for a while during your travels.
