  • Description


    Availability from 1st January 2023.


    I am a single mum up for sharing my home in Palma on the beautiful Island of Mallorca. I am looking for help to take care of, teach, play and adventure with my baby boy on weekdays whilst I work.

    I am mummy to Felix who will be 6months old by the end of December. I have just gone back to work full time. Candidates should be comfortable / have experience with little one's.

    A bit about me - I was born in England, and I’m half Italian, I’ve worked & travelled internationally using the Island as a home base for over 7 years.

    I am looking for someone to take care of Felix while I work and to help keep on top of the house work.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have been sharing with housemates for over 10 years and love meeting new people to share hobbies with. I’m into yoga, cycling, hiking, swimming and exploring the Island and festivals, going on excursions as well as chilling on the sofa and watch a good series together.

    I am English & speak basic Spanish and would love to improve! I intend for Felix to be bilingual at the very least so both languages are spoken at home and Birgit speaks German to him as well!

    I’m currently working 7 hours a day, Monday to Friday,(9-1pm, 2hr break to feed/express for F & then back to the office 3-6pm). I will have some flexibility around these hours and might be able to work at home partially. Felix is still breastfed so I express for when I’m in the office.

    I already share home with one AMAZING work-awayer, Birgit, who has been here since September and has decided to return after Christmas (hurray)! We are getting on so well and its wonderful to have Birgit stay longer since by now, Felix has formed a strong bond. Birgit is Austrian, a life coach & spiritual healer and works mostly online. She has two grown up kids herself, and speaks fluent German, Spanish & English! I’m also happily hosting short stay work-awayers until Christmas to give the extra pair of hands and then have availability January onwards.

  • Accommodation


    Join us in our shared apartment with sea views and a communal swimming pool!

    We have a bright and airy double bedroom, and a shared bathroom, in a wonderful apartment which is all open plan and includes a large, decked out private roof top terrace and balcony.

    The apartment is in a great area. We are close to Palma centre but enjoy a peaceful neighbourhood.

    Whilst the childcare is the main focus, I am opening my home as a friendly, fun & respectful housemate and it is important we maintain responsibility to share the housework. I’m very clean and tidy and expect you to be too.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The apartment is located 10mins bike ride from Palma centre with direct access to the bike lanes opposite the house. There are several buses that go from a bus stop within a 3mins walk, with regular buses to the beach or into town.

    I love sharing activities such as hiking or rock climbing at the weekend or visiting a nearby Cala for a SUP! I have been teaching yoga in the centre of town for several years and would welcome any interest!
