    Description

    Hi, we're an English family living in Ibiza and are looking for more helpers to join our family, and help with the house, garden our three children, and lots of other animals. We have a lovely little community of helpers already, most of them long term - our house is full of creativity, work and fun, and Ibiza is a wonderful island.

    Right now we are looking for extra pairs of hands to help in the house and garden, - hardworking team players with a friendly and positive attitude are welcome! We currently have space for April/may and at least part of June.

    We have a project in a large finca very close to Santa Gertrudis and we would love help with renovations, gardening, traditional wall building, painting and whatever else comes up! The house is comfortable and habitable, but we're constantly updating it and making cosmetic improvements. We have a small team of workawayers, right now we have 4 lovely people with us and it's great fun! The house is large and rambling with several different living spaces, so people can have their own space as well as being together.

    As the covid restrictions are still strict, and the island is still recovering from the 3rd wave, we want people who are happy to follow the guidelines so we can all keep each other safer.

    Trustworthy, open minded and level headed people with a great sense of fun who adapt well to different environments and love kids and new experiences are ideal.

    If that sounds interesting, do get in touch!

    We welcome lovely people with an interest in organisational skills/design/gardening/building skills/eco building, general enthusiasm and good humour. We offer a wonderful space in the heart of the island, a fun and supportive environment with good food and company, and hope for really great help in return. We've got lots of rooms to house workawayers, and there's always something that needs a hand....

    Here's a little list of some of the things we're working on:

    Gardening - working in the vegetable garden, general garden maintenance, watering, redesigning, landscaping & planting a low water garden/ planting and arranging containers.
    Animals: we have a flock of rare breed chickens who always need feeding / cleaning/ stray chick rearing plus lizards, tortoises, dogs and guinea pigs who need care and feeding and human friends.
    House - painting inside & out, redecorating, building/renovating furniture & lighting, cleaning, organising, sprucing up the spaces, and adding some decorative touches.
    Swimming pools - cleaning, grouting, landscaping & eventually we want to create a solar hot water system for heating.
    Household - helping with our kids, tidying, shopping, cooking and the endless laundry!

One part of it is a large guest house, currently called 'the workaway house' which has its own kitchen, several bedrooms and bathrooms. It's in a lovely area of Ibiza within walking distance to Santa Gertrudis.
