  • Description


    We are a young and open-minded German-Mexican-Polish family with two little boys. With the help of a dozen amazing Workawayers, we finished renovating a beautiful villa in the old town of Guanajuato, Mexico. We now have someone administrating the rent longterm and could need some help with ongoing work in the house such as gardening and cleaning.
