  • Description


    We are Christian couple 58, 70 moved to Spain - nearly 5 years ago (wow that went quick), we have a large garden area and my husband is trying to keep on top of it, although he is still little an action man he is struggling a little with arthritis. Jim is also working on a dry stone/ Japanese style garden, so lots of moving stone and building and developing this together. We really could do with some help re painting our home, Just a few hrs a day will be such a blessing to us then the rest of the time is yours. Of course we will feed you hahaha All this is very new to us as well.
    We live 4k away from the beach but happy to drive you there if available, previous work-awayer's have had either a car or bike.
    Jimmi & Shelli

    ✔️Dan helped with this as well as vital piping around the house it was great to have hot water in the kitchen)
    ✔️Painting pool area (Marco has helped us to complete this).
    ✔️Building up a dry stone wall. (David our first experience of WA. supporting us with this so all completed).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have a car and happy to show you around local town which is 4k away. If you want to come to church more than happy as well, there will be no pressure at all from us. Our home is your home. Please be aware that if your not great on your own ( I'm not great on my own, so i can say this) it can be pretty lonely, esp. If your young and hanging out with a 58 and 70 yr old might not be what your looking for. Saying this we have had workaway's from 20-30 plus and are very adaptable & welcoming.
