Me and my boyfriend are a Swedish-Colombian couple living in Santa Marta. I work as a writer and Manuel manages a sailboat for a living. We have two (and one more recent rescued) sweet dogs that we love. We live in the centre of Santa Marta in a big apartment. Pool & sauna in the building and 1 minute walk to the main street of Santa Marta restaurants etc. Also 1 minute to beaach!
Help in the house
You will be able to practice your Spanish a lot meeting people on every day errands. You will for sure learn a lot about young dogs and their intense energy!
You will stay with us in the apartment on the tiny loft we have, including bed. We will need help during the whole day, but with free time in between, where you can relax on our private terrasse or at the common terrasse with a nice sun deck and pools.
The help required is around 3 hours per day. The help includes help with washing up, cleaning, other house work - but MAINLY taking out the dogs. Weekends off, but can be flexible.
We only accept single people, no couples traveling. However in November Vera is going away for 10 days traveling, so these weeks we can accept a couple to make it easier with the dogs. Please look in the calendar to see if there is anything available for the month you are coming. We only accept people that can stay 3-4 weeks.
When you write me please be kind and start write this in your field of topic "Coming to Santa Marta ~month~, am traveling alone". This is mainly to confirm you understood and read the information above. Looking forward to hear from you!
