Hello! We are a family living in the south of Spain, by the beach. We are Cesar, Luz, Pablo (10 years) and Gabriel (4 years) I used to work as a doula (supponting women and families during pregnancy, birth and first months) That was my work and my passion as well, so I was very lucky to do what I loved. Since I had my jungest son, I stopped all my work and centered on their needs. I want to start working a little again, that's why I need help at home and with the children.
We try to eat healthy, we buy locally and we cook more vegetables than meat. I am half German half Spanish, but I try to speak English to the kids (I try to give my best). We are 20 minutes far from Tarifa town, in Bolonia, the best beach from Spain they say! We only have two bedrooms, so the workawayer will be in a room that is also a playing room during the day (I know it's not the best, but it's what we can offer at the moment and the mornings are always tranquil). We will try to respect privacy and calm as much as possible.
Gabriel, our little boy, has Down Syndrome and we are blessed to have him with us and learn a lot with him. He had already two surgeries, but at the moment he is a healthy happy boy!

Help around the house
Tarifa is a magical place, we are just 14 km from the African continent. We have most of the time wind coming from somewhere, so it's perfect for wind sports such as windsurf, kitesurf and many other. We have beautiful beaches and mountains. You can learn Spanish too. Bolonia has beautiful Roman ruins and a Museum. Nature around is beautiful and in Tarifa town you find people from all around the world.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for a person full of life. We need someone with love for children, patience and speaking English. We prefer someone that has little experience or knows about respect to the natural development of the child, Montessori, Waldorf or other kind of respectful education philosophy. We also appreciate if you know about special needs. We prefer a minimum stay of one month and maximum of six. We are going to learn a lot together!
The helping time it depends of my partners work, César will be away for 3-4 days a week. Daily maybe 2/3 hours, but not every day. We have a lot of family around, so you will have always help if you need it. If you are open minded, you love nature and children, flexibility with time and love beach and mountain, that's your place!!
This host offers a language exchange
We talk English and Spanish at home, and I also can communicate in German.
You will have to share your room with some toys. We only have an extra room, so you will sleep there but during the day is also a plying room. We will share kitchen, bathroom and living room. We also have a little garden with some plants. The room has a single bed and access to a little terrace. You can see the sea from terrace and beautiful sunset!
5 minutes from the beach (walk) We are about 25km far from Tarifa and we have beautiful beaches with all kind of water sports and activities. The walks around are amazing.

We live in a very small town by the beach and many people spend months around in a camper van ... so it is a good option here
