I am a lifetime traveler (110+ countries visited and gazillion stories to tell) who finally decided to buy an old house and refurbish it in my beautiful hometown. I rent the house (sleeps up to 28 guests) nightly and 2 apartments at the front monthly (usually very cool tenants live here with us) . Querétaro is one of Mexico´s hipest and safest cities. Downtown is a UNESCO World Heritage protected place and the guesthouse is one block away from main square. Its a beautiful old colonial house that has been turned into a comfortable, inviting and modern place with a small swimming pool, terrace, BBQ area and great common spaces (including a TV room and a piano). We are into people and our customers become our friends. This is why the minimum stay we ask for is 8 weeks and longer stays are preferred. Most of the workawayers who join us usually extend their stay.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
You will be part of a super friendly work team, where we value human interactions above all. Living in a very privileged location (guesthouse is 1 block from main square) you will have a unique oportunity to experience life in Querétaro. Its easy to meet locals and create life lasting friendships. There are spanish and dancing schools nearby. You will leave the city with a bunch of new friends.
We need general help to run the place. Most of the help is cleaning (yes including toilets). Other tasks are: laundry, watering the plants, help with bookings, taking out the rubbish, walking Frita (most loved dog on earth), checking people in/out and some shopping. Our amazing locally paid staff includes Manuel and Chucho, who make sure our faciities are functioning and in top shape and Alicia and Juliana who are responsible for keeping the house spotless.

Our on site staff room has 2 single beds, shower and toilet. Ideally you will share the room with a same sex fellow traveler or with a previous friend/partner. You will be able to use our big kitchen, terrace, swimming pool, TV room, piano, super nintendo, etc. You become our family on day 1.
Workawayers will have free use of full kitchen (stove, fridge, oven, toaster, microwave, coffee machine, kettle, etc). Simple breakfast items will be provided for workawayers (coffee, tea, jam).
Walking distance from guesthouse you will find cafés, bars, restaurants, museums, cinemas, parks, markets, supermarkets, etc. Querétaro is a young, vibrant city. We have a bike sharing scheme station 20 steps away from house. So basically you will only need public transportation when going further (uber and cabify both work amazingly well here) Nearby there are other beautiful cities that can be seen in daytrips easily (San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Bernal, Tequisquiapan, etc).
Mexico City is a 3hrs bus ride away. Querétaro´s own small airport has flights to Cancun, Mexico City (ridiculously short), Acapulco, Ixtapa, Huatulco, Tijuana, Monterrey, Huatulco, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Atlanta.
Querétaro´s Sierra Gorda is an amazing natural destination, off the gringo trail and only 5 hours away.
There are hiking and biking areas quite close to the city.
I have been a traveler all my life so I naturally promote that our workawayers travel around here. I´m flexible towards arranging days off so you can explore more.
