Please only contact us if you can spend at least one month here. We are looking for help in the garden and with construction projects. We speak English at home, live in the country with a good amount of outdoor space and tranquility but are 2 minutes (by car) from the third largest city in the center of Mallorca (Inca). We are also 20 minutes from the capital of the island (Palma). The price of the train/bus (1.5 kms from home) to most of the places on the island varies: single trips are expensive (3 euros) but if you get a train card you can buy 40 trips (to use within 45 days) it costs 45.80 euros ( 1.15 euros per trip) and if you buy 20 trips to use within 1 year it costs 30.40 euros (1.52 euros per trip).
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
There is work outside (gardening, etc.) and we have some construction projects we would like to finish, so somebody with experience in construction would be a plus.
Private room, kitchen and bathroom in separate house (adjacent to our house) in the countryside. We will lend the workawayers bicycles to move around (deposit required). About the Internet: we use our Internet for work, but we like to offer it to the Workawayers who stay with us as a courtesy because we know it can be a help for them to stay connected with email and to look things up on the Internet, but it should not be used for downloading movies, music, constant video calls like skype (a little is okay), or other high-bandwidth or illegal internet uses because these cause problems for us (we will know if these activities are happening on our network). If a workawayer does this we then have to stop providing internet and they have to go to an Internet cafe or a library to get internet and this would also make the living situation and our relationship more difficult, so please be responsible. Thanks! You can get lots of movies for free from the local library and we also have lots of DVDs (mostly cartoons) that we can lend you that are good especially if you are trying to learn English or Spanish..
Another reason why we need couples is because we are very busy and don't have much time to spend with workawayers, that's why we will give you 50 € a week (total for both Workawayers) and you can buy and cook your own food.
This way you can be with each other during your free time, explore the island together and have touristy adventures. We have already seen the island and can't take workawayers to the touristy places we have already been many times. Sundays would be the only day we could spend time with you if you want to go somewhere with us (unless we are invited to a friend's house and we can not include you). Otherwise we will ask you if you want to come with us when we have an outing.
