  • Description


    Every year, our family rents a house on the beach between Canet and Almenara, Spain. We're multicultural (mother American, father Spanish), sociable, and love cooking! The beach house is about 40 min from the city of Valencia, and every weekend we will have friends coming over to spend the day in the clear, clean water, eat paella, and drink mojitos and white wine.

    Our girls are good swimmers, good eaters, and very good friends. Both are very active and sporty, but they can also spend hours drawing and playing with each other.

    We're looking for someone to spend about 4-6 weeks with us in July and up to mid-August, so we can work out of our "garage-office" while you take care of the girls from about 9 am to 2 pm on weekdays.

    If you're interested in discovering Valencia, too, you would be welcome the last two weeks of June. We live in the historic center (El Carmen) and are fabulously located to explore the best parts of the city.

    What else ...

    Spend your free time chilling on the beach or checking out some of the beach towns just north or south. Bike can be provided, but note that this is a quiet area - far from the high rise hotels, apartment buildings, and nightlife that characterize so much of the coast.
