We are a South African family (Kevin, Lara & Tommy) living on the lovely island of Mallorca. We have lived in various areas of Mallorca for nearly 10 years after travelling and working on private yachts since 2002. We own a food business specialising in South African foods. Lara works at the business full time and Kevin is a private yacht captain, and travels away for work during the year. Our son, Tommy is an energetic and confident 12 year old and we have 3 very friendly dogs, Layla (8 yrs) Buddy (4 yrs) and Oreo (10months).
Help in the house
We are english speaking South Africans, so workaways will enjoy a taste of South African culture. We also speak Spanish & Lara speaks French too. Binissalem is in an agricultural area where not much english is spoken, so a great opportunity to learn spanish or even some Mallorquin.
In January we moved house from the SW coast to Binissalem, the inland wine making region of Mallorca. Our new home is in need of reforms so we are looking for someone to help gardening, carpentry, building projects or handyman type work to make our home look as beautiful as our surroundings. We also have a caravan that we are converting to a food truck, so anyone who has experience in this field would be welcome. Since we are self employed we tend to work very long hours so it would also be lovely to have someone who is happy to hang out at home with our son if we are tied up at events that run late.
English, Spanish, Afrikaans & a bit of French
Own room with double bed (or 2 single beds), shared bathroom and shared kitchenette.
Binissalem is inland and is the wine making area of Mallorca. There are mountains close by where walks and hikes are abundant. The country side is also criss-crossed with little single lane country roads which are great for cycling. There is a train station in the village so Palma is easily and cheaply accessible.
