  • Description


    Hi, we're an English family living in Ibiza and are looking for a lovely helpers to join our family, help with our renovation project, getting ready for the tourist season and/or our three children. I'm a jewellery designer and maker, and Oli is an artist, so our house is full of creativity and fun, and Ibiza is a wonderful island.

    We're looking for a few different kinds of help, short and long term..

    *️️️️*️️️️*️️️️*️️️️ *️️️️*️️️️*️️️️*️️️️UPDATE We're looking for help from the 27th June to 14th of July *️️️ *️️️ *️️️ *️️️ *️️️ *️️️ *️️️ *️️️ *️️️

    We've started a new project in a large finca very close to Santa Gertrudis where we will be living and working, and would love help with renovations, gardening, traditional wall building, painting and whatever else comes up! The house is comfortable and habitable, but we'd like to update it and make cosmetic improvements. We have a small team of workawayers, right now we have 5 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.

    We're looking also for a long term person/couple who are available for at least 6 months or longer ideally, and who can drive to help with the kids and in the house. (driving isn't absolutely necessary, but would be very handy) We need someone flexible, cheerful and If you're looking to put down some roots in Ibiza, we can be a perfect base to get started! Of course we don't expect anyone to commit to that long a stay immediately, just to be willing to stay long term if we all get on well.

    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!

    You can learn English and/or Spanish and Catalan, get to know the wonderful island of Ibiza, gain a relationship with a warm, happy family, learn about painting and jewellery making, learn cooking. (we love to cook) You can meet other workawayers and local friends, and have a great Ibiza experience - what you make of it is up to you!

  • Help


    For the childcare side of things, we're looking for someone who can stay with us for at least 6 months, or longer, to provide continuity for the children. In terms of help with house renovations etc, we can consider shorter stays, but prefer at least a month, unless it's a person with special skills.

    The long term workaway suits someone naturally spontaneous who's kind, patient, cheerful and loves kids! We ask for about 25 hours work a week, helping in the house and looking after the kids. (We've got 3 year old twin girls, and a 8 year old boy).

    We're looking for someone who will be playful and engage with the children, get down on the floor with them and sing songs and play, but also take responsibility for helping in the house. We have a cleaner, so you're not expected to do bathrooms etc, but definitely washing up, laundry and general household tidying up after the kids. If you're interested and willing, you could get involved with the jewellery or art, or have time and space for your own projects.

    We can offer a lovely bedroom with its own private entrance, so you can go in without coming through the house, and with its own bathroom. If you like I can send you photos of the house and the room too. We have a car for our helper/s to use, as long as you're over 21 and have had a licence for at least 2 years, and we can pay part of your phone bill too so we can communicate. We travel at least a few times a year, and normally ask our helper to come with us.

    For the finca project we need lovely people with an interest in design/gardening/building skills/eco building, general enthusiasm and good humour. We've got lots of rooms to house workawayers, and will post more information as the project evolves.

    Here's a little list of some of the things we're working on:
    Gardening - creating a food garden, redesigning landscaping & planting a low water garden
    House - painting inside & out, redecorating, building/renovating furniture & lighting.
    Swimming pools - redesigning, retiling, creating a solar hot water system for heating.
    Household - helping with our kids, tidying, shopping, cooking and the endless laundry!
    general - building play structures & treehouse for the kids

    We live in a beautiful area of Ibiza, close to the centre of of the Island. There's lots of things to do, Ibiza isn't just about parties and clubbing, there's beautiful nature and creative people.

    If that all sounds good, we're keen to talk to you!

    We're in a beautiful restored finca with a garden, two pools and several terraces, it's normally a high end holiday rental. It's a big house with lots of rooms and separate spaces. 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.
