  • Description


    Hi there, I moved to Spain 3.5 years ago and with my (now) 8 year old boy. Combining my professional activities and social life with my kid/household is not an easy task, so I'm looking for some help. Tasks will be mainly cleaning and other domestic services and looking after my kid when I need (or just want) to go out. You will have plenty of free time to work on your own projects, go out yourself or to just enjoy the region, the sun and the sea. My boy is very energetic, but he easily adapts to new people and is very outgoing. Between us we speak Spanish but I also speak English, Dutch, French and some Portuguese. My son speaks Spanish and Dutch, but also understands some English as he's on a bilingual school.

    Veni a España hace 3 años y medio con mi hijo de (ahora) 8 años. Trabajar, una vida social y un niño no es una combinación fácil, por eso busco a alguien que me ayude en casa. Mi hijo tiene mucha energia, pero tiene un caracter muy abierto y se conecta fácilmente con otros.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    - Language exchange: I'm fluent in English and Spanish and Dutch is my native language. There's also a language school at 1 min from my placen- Cultural exchange: I like to do excursions or small trips during the weekend and workawayers are welcome to join. And there's also plenty to visit during your free time. I've had Workawayers visiting me or joining me to places such as Granada, Ronda, Gibraltar, Nerja, Sevilla, Sierra Nevada (skiing!) etc.
    I sometimes also host couchsurfers so you can meet more people (you will always have your own private room though)

  • Help


    I usually work from home (or any place nearby with an internet connection). I will need your help when I have appointments with clients or just social events. Normally this is mostly in the afternoon/evening. Examples of tasks: Cooking lunch- Taking my kid to school/activities (soccer, athletics) or picking him up Putting him to bed "Entertain" him - his favorite activity is playing soccer! Also some general housekeeping tasks (cleaning, ironing). In case of long-term stay: Your schedule might be different from week to week, but in general we should be able to work something out which suits both of us, depending on the purpose of your stay. For example, if you want to take a language course, it shouldn't be a problem to have mornings off to attend classes.
    Other information:
    - We eat mostly organic food at home
    - I prefer people who can stay 4 weeks or longer (but this is not a must)
