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.
Babysitting and creative play
Our girls are bilingual (Spanish-English) and will be happy to speak to you in Spanish (but can understand English). Relaxed family environment in a quiet residential neighborhood one block from the beach.
Help us spend the summer on the beach near Canet, Spain, watching our twin seven-year-old girls while we spend the mornings working remotely on our laptops. Good swimmers a must :-)
You'll have your own room in a two-story duplex, with a little garden in front leading to a pedestrian street that takes you straight to the beach. Shared bathroom (2 full baths in the house).
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.
