We are back in business, albeit, at a snail's pace.The job is to help me with housekeeping, making beds, vacuuming, the reception duties. If you have some general maintenance skills that's would be really helpful. A basic understanding of Spanish is OK. 99% of our guests speak English. Your accommodation, breakfast and dinner would be included. No overnight shift here. Please respond in English only. Thanks!

Sandra manages her business like a pro,
They worked on the house facade that was eroded and damaged by graffiti. Having no previous experience with plastering they learned on the job. The wall looks really well done and ready to be painted. They also helped with the general maintenance and were really friendly and respectful.
