  • Description


    Hi can you help us to finally finish renovating our beautiful Andalucian home?
    Covid sadly lost us our jobs of 23 years as BA cabin crew so now we have a fun new project for our future.
    We have two great teen girls who are crazy about everything water sports and two old loving labradors but the project is running a little slower than we would like. Spare hands would be amazing to help us with finishing our home and future business. Ideally a traveling couple who are pretty handy in the painting/gardening or general building field. I love to cook and promise to feed you well in exchange for 5 hours of general work and help a day alongside my husband.
    We are between the enchanting white village of Mijas and the bustling resort of Fuengirola where the sun always shines. Close to the train station it’s a fantastic base for exploring and discovering everything Andalucia has to offer whilst escaping the winter blues.

    A very comfortable private bedroom with a double bed within our family home. I am a keen cook and experiment with foods from around the world. You will eat as part of our family as we share good food together around the table. We love to eat all cuisines and if you want to help in the kitchen and teach us your specialities that would be amazing too.
