    I would like general help around the house, living in the area we do we have lots of dust. Help with gardening, such as weeding and digging, strimming , tidying stuff from ex-build projects in the yard and the garden etc but we are open to people s abilities such as construction, building, general maintenance such as painting, anyone able to help with technology is always helpful from time to time as well as sharing cooking duties once in a while if that is one of your passions.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Puerto the Mazarron has a bus station from where you can travel to various towns and places. Having your own car or renting one would make it easier for you to visit local beaches and areas of interest.
    We strictly do not allow smoking as forest fires are very dangerous .
    We enjoy the quite life and nature and the tranquility.
    There is no or little telephone signal so unless in 1 particular spot you will not be able to pick up service. It is an ideal place for those people who like to disconnect.
    We are respectful of people s space and as this is our home that it is reciprocated. Although water is limited and gets brought in by lorry of course daily showers are permitted and we are happy to share the washing machine with mutual conferring not to waste water or energy. We will also have to discuss and teach you how to live with solar energy as there are certain guidelines.
