  • Description

    Description

    We are a mixed nationality couple with a three years old daughter called Summer Lily, currently living in Spain.
    We share our house with 3 dogs and 2 cats and whole lot of friends, family and work away travelers who we enjoy inviting and sharing our house with.

    Being environment conscious, we are proud to be living off the grid and producing our own energy using solar and wind power installed by my husband. We are also learning - every year more successfully - to grow our own fruit and veg which is not as easy to do here, comparing to our home countries.

    The renovation is an ongoing project, currently being about 95% finalized, yet there is always something to finish, change or improve.
    We host work away travelers to help us mostly in the garden, which we have whole 20 000 m2 of and to help us with various things in the house, this being painting, cleaning after the reno, some creative things, carpentry and some very special people will sometimes have the honor to look after my sun and moon, my daughter Summer while I am out food shopping:)

    As a couple we enjoy the very simple pleasures of life such as cooking, making pizzas in our outdoor pizza over, baking fresh sourdough bread, working in the garden, doing up-cycle projects, furniture painting, playing board games and bocce and watching movies from a projector.

    I believe experiences and non monetary exchanges such as this one are a great way to share what we have with others while being enriched at the same time; it is giving and receiving in the most natural way possible.
    Every one of our work away guests have been a great experience and we we keep in touch with most.

    That's about it, really. :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The house is located in a peaceful country side of Mallorca, about a 1.5km from the center of town called Porreres.

    The area is lovely with beautiful views, about 20min drive from the loveliest beach on Mallorca, Es Trenc. There are too many things to do and enjoy on the island to mention them all here!!

    Hello travelers!

    Thank you for stopping by.
    We host work-awayer's regularly to help us in the house and garden. We like to host like minded people to ensure a positive experience for all parties. I read and consider all messages and profiles carefully before deciding who to host.

    This time, as of October 6th I am looking for CREATIVES, FUNNY and CLEVER individuals to help me complete the Kickstarter campaign I am working on, to launch all plant based, planet and human safe sunscreen.

    It is a project I have been working on for the past year and I am almost there... but looking after the house, garden and my daughter means the time necessary to bring it to light is constantly being cut short by the demands of normal every day life.

    I am hoping that by inviting like minded, nature loving creative energies, I will be able to set an environment of creative and achieving power this project needs in order to materialize.

    What I really need and am lacking right now is having someone to talk to about my ideas as they come about, in real time, hearing an honest first impression opinion that will help me refine the script ideas, someone to help me with making pictures and videos, finalizing research, making meals, house and garden maintenance, or help looking after my daughter when I need to work with no distractions.
    While many individuals and business professionals volunteered to help with my eco project via social media platforms, the time and distance constrains proved to make it hard to utilize.
    I hope that by having a few extra brains, opinions and good energies around, I will be able to make it happen.

    If this sounds like something you can contribute to and think we could be a good match, send me a message!

    Few things to know:
    1. I mostly host couples. Because I live alone with my daughter most of the time, for safety reasons, I don't host single man travelers (unless I am hosting other people at the same time)
    2. The minimum stay is 2 weeks

    If this speaks to you, send me a message.

    I want to hear from you!

    Sylvia and Sami

    Accommodation

    You will have your own bedroom and a shared bathroom.

    I like to keep things clean and tidy so you will have to keep your room in perfect order:
    bed made every morning, twice weekly dust, vacuum and mop.

    We will provide one cooked meal per day - that being either lunch or dinner - and I will appreciated if you can help me cook or clean up after. Two remaining meals will be up to you, so you will be free to use whatever we have in the house.

    We are on a Plant Based Diet, but if you have other requirements, you are welcome to cater for yourself according to your own like.

    I eat rather healthily and there is always plenty of fruit and veggies in the house, aside from bread, baguettes, cereal, cheeses etc. I don't consume snacks, soft drinks or fruit juices, but you are welcome to buy those for yourself if this is what you like, my big request will be for you to be discrete with sweets so that my daughter doesn't see them.
    It is hard to explain to a two year old that she should not eat something she knows taste sweet...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Best way to get around Mallorca is by rented car or a motorcycle. There are buses that run from Porreres to Palma and other parts of the island too, but obviously car is the easiest. Porreres is a cute little town with a bunch of bars and restaurants in the center.

    It gets super busy and popular with tourists during the season. There are over 300 beaches around too, from small and private, very busy ones with bars and long and sandy. Mallorca is also famous for hiking and there are many trails from easy to hard and probably most popular for cyclists.
