I am Paulina, a traveller, psychologist and owner of a small university students house located in Viña del Mar and focused on making this place a communitary atmosphere so everyone who lives here makes their part and work together sharing their everyday life. I have used workaway as a traveller in America and Europe, and I believe it's an excellent opportunity to meet interesting people and have a cultural exchange, helping each other.
The house is a two story building near a botanical garden with flowers and a small forest, the city of Viña del Mar where you can find a beautiful beach and lots of things to do, and Valparaiso is an interesting place with old markets and good nightlife, we are 2 blocks away from the bus stop that can connect you everywhere the 24 hours.
We also have in the house two small dogs who are loving and friendly, who love to go for walks to the beach (about a 20 minute ride by urban bus) and meet new people.
We are growing a small compost with the organic waste that we generate and we'd love to receive someone who is aware about the importance of the ecological responsibility of everyone on the planet.
As I've been a workaway myself, I know comfort and privacy is very important so you'll have your own room with a nice bed and fresh linen and a shared bathroom, and you can use the kitchen and common spaces.

Here you can learn Spanish and English, how to properly manage a eco friendly compost, enjoy nature in a beautiful botanical garden that's 20 minutes of walking distance, enjoy the different beaches and seafood that can be found in our shores, learn about chilean cuisine, do trekking, and see the sights of the hills of Valparaiso, the Sand Dunes of Concon and go to the concerts and many cultural events in the summer.
The help requested is pretty easy, help around the house (mostly maintenance, cleaning, gardening, etc.), just helping making the house a cozy and comfortable place.
If you also have other skills like being a Yoga teacher, know photography, alternative therapy, video edition, painting, etc. whatever that you enjoy doing and are willing to share an teach will be greatly appreciated and we can include that in your workaway hours, I'm always open to proposals and new ideas.
