After 20 years running a big guesthouse and receiving hundreds foreigners, I sold that house and moved to a smaller one. I need to finish settling down and to install a workshop. I'm a retired engineer and travelled man (also I was a workawayer years ago).
Now I would be very pleased to give to creative, practically minded helpers a place to stay, and to bring them info about Buenos Aires, this huge and amazing city.
I can receive JUST ONE NO SMOKER traveler for 1 - 2 weeks.
Please write me only if you are near to come and have comfirmed dates.
Notice: if you never took a broom or a brush, or you have problems to wake up at 8am... don't write me. Lie will not last and you will be invited to leave. Thanks you for understand.

Also you will learn many tips and tricks to improve your handy(wo)man capability (many guests call me "Mc Giver" ;-).
Duties: 3hs a day Mon to Fri in the mornings (shifts possible) to help me in cleaning and maintenance of the house, painting, wash and fix some small repairs in my cars. Not heavy works.
Knowledge of Spanish is a plus.

Free accommodation in individual room + shared bathroom + breakfast. MEALS: I don't cook many times neither for me!. But you will be free to cook or we can share some cheap takeaway meals.
Buenos Aires urban area holds more than 150 cinemas and theaters, many art centers, all kind of museums, in summer many open air free shows...
The house is a residential area not far from downtown, with 2 subway + 12 bus lines around (most buses runs all night in BA). A good, quiet and safe location. There is a very huge park at 3 blocks. Remember this city is so big that to cross it takes near 2 hours in bus.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
