  • Description


    Hola! Bienvenidos! :) My name is Dayana, I've been a workawayer myself, so I've convinced my family to join this amazing platform as hosts and they are looking forward to welcoming you here!.

    Our cozzy home is located in the city of Ensenada, Baja California (75 miles from the border with the US). We live on a hill and we have a beautiful view of the city from our terrace. Our neighborhood is nice and quiet, and well connected by public transportation/uber, or even walking! so you can explore the city everyday :)

    We have a tiny dog called Joey that is part of our family, he is one year old and lives inside the house. He is very friendly and a true explorer, and I take him to beach every weekend.

    My dad Rafael and my mom Hilda are both retired. My dad used to be a teacher and my mom is an entrepreneur who had a business for many years. I am 26 yo, hold a Bachelors Degree on International Business, I studied abroad twice, and love traveling. I took a gap year after school to workaway in Central and South America and it was one of the best experiences of my life! I recently quit my job to work on a film project and may start volunteering soon again!

    My dad is a true handy man, who loves carpentry and my mom is passionate about gardening. They have started an amazing project at our house with our organic garden. They do composting (some neighbours even give us their organic waste) and developed their own water recycling system. Additionnally my moms recycles plastic bottles and creates pots for her plants.

    We are preferrably looking for someone with some experience on gardening, permaculture, green architecture, etc., that can bring new ideas to this project! :) If you do not have any experience but love nature, are a fast learner and very creative, energetic and proactive, you are also welcome to join us! :)

    The help consists mainly on helping with the garden. 25 hrs per week, we are very flexible and we also want you to enjoy your time here and this beautiful city, but please be aware that we are a smoke and drug-free house. Our family and friends come visit very often, so we would like someone that is respectful, kind and enjoys social interactions.

    In your free time, you can chill at the hammock in the terrace or in our small pool outside (available spring and summer). Ensenada is a very touristic city, so there are many things to do. You can walk to downtown, go to the beach, try the local cafés and taste our delicious local food!
