    Hello everyone,

    We are Gonzalo and Javier, two Spanish guys who are the hosts of a Guest House in Malaga. The house is a beautiful villa in a great location, very near the beach and the city centre.

    We are looking for a new workawayer to join our team and help with the housekeeping of the B&B: duties include cleaning, laundry, cooking –just for ourselves, not guests- welcoming guests and maybe some administration. These are tasks that can be done by anyone, but we require that the workawayers carry them out at a fast pace and to a high standard. Ideally, we would like to recruit someone with good organizational and administration skills, as well as a good level of English and possibly some Spanish.

    We will consider all the applications, but preferably, we will be more interested in workawayers applying on a single account –not couples- and aged between 21 and 32. Gender wise, we don’t exclude anyone for being male or female, but you have to keep in mind that you might have to share a room with someone of the opposite gender.

    We will never ask you to work extra hours, but we do ask that the hours you work really count. We offer accommodation in a really nice house, all the bills including internet and three meals a day. If you find our profile on some famous hotels web, at the time of writing these lines our overall score is 9 out of 10, being the staff friendliness our strongest point. Guests' satisfaction and subsequent good reviews are essential to us. For that reason, we recruit workawayers who can really commit to helping this new venture and are good with people, naturally attentive and friendly, in order to keep receiving good comments about our service.

    Basically, there are three qualities that we really value in any person joining the team:

    1- EFFICIENCY. Efficiency and reliability at work: we'll need everybody to turn up on time and in good shape, and carry out your duties in an organized manner and to a good standard.

    2- EMPATHY. Interacting and empathizing with all our guests is a must, we ought to listen to their plans, questions or requests and respond in the best possible manner. It is essential to have good people skills and go the extra mile in terms of kindness and friendliness towards our guests so they can feel like at home.

    3- ATTITUDE. A positive and sensible attitude towards the team and the villa. We recruit people willing to get involved with the team, who want to participate with the rest of the housemates while being respectful at all times, including sensible housekeeping when not on duty. We need good vibes and harmony in the house so that all workawayers can feel happy, which reflects in a naturally friendly service to our guests.

    Please note that our house is not a backpackers hostel, it's a beautiful B&B in a good area and so the standards of cleanliness and service expected by our guests are also higher; therefore, the quality of our work must be up to those expectations. If you have some experience in the hospitality industry it'd be great.

    We would rather recruit someone willing to stay at least 7-8 weeks. There are plenty of things to see and do in Malaga, so you won't get bored!

    If you are interested, please get in touch and explain briefly a few details such as: your age, main skills, intended length of stay and date of availability.

    To speed things up, when you write please pass a mobile phone number we can contact, especially good if you have Whatsapp installed.

    Thanks very much!

    The house is now shared by a team of great workawayers from many different countries, so you'll get to live and work in a very international enviorement.

    English is the language mainly used at home, but if you'd rather learn or improve your Spanish this could be a great opportunity. Besides, we would gladly show you around the city whenever possible and would tell you all the cool places and villages to see in the province.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The house is in a nice area of Malaga city, within walking distance from the city centre and the beach. Anyway, if you prefer not to walk, a bus stop is right outside the house and the bus will take you to and from the beach or the city centre. The cost of living is very affordable.

    The house has views to other hills and the the sea, it's in the way to the Gibralfaro Castle, from where the views are amazing (check it out on Google).

    Malaga is a big and vibrant city, with plenty of museums, bars, restaurants and places to go out at night. Besides, there are lots of cool towns to visit along the coast that are easy to reach by train. Plenty of youngsters come here to study Spanish and the University of Malaga is pretty big, so there are lots of people in their twenties or early thirties that always want to enjoy their time off.
