  • Description


    I am an English teacher at a high school in Coin, Malaga. I grew up there and I have always lived in Spain, but I´ve traveled around Europe quite a bit. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing our different experiences. This is my first time hosting a workawayer, and I am looking forward to hosting someone in my house and helping me with my project.

    I have recently bought a house in Mijas Costa, a beautiful small beach town in the Costa del Sol. The beach is actually only 10 minutes walking-distance away. There is a natural trail nearby that connects la Cala de Mijas to Marbella, where you can walk/cycle/run and enjoy the coastal scenery.

    I currently live in Fuengirola, so I will not be living in the house with you. I would come from time to time during the week in the afternoons after school hours and on weekends, and in the summer I will have more time to work on the renovations.

    I am looking for a hard working person to help me with renovating my house. Some tasks would include tiling the bathroom, replacing doors, repairing the walls, etc.

    As I will not be living in the house with you, I will not be able to cook for you everyday. I will provide you with the necessary groceries you will need to prepare your own meals. I can either bring you anything you need, accompany you to the store, or you can choose what you need for yourself. Whenever I have the time, I could cook for you.

    Mijas Costa is a small town with beautiful beaches, located 10km away from Marbella, a popular holiday destination, and 30km away from Malaga, a big city hub where one of the largest international airports is situated. Surrounding Mijas Costa are typical Andalusian towns such as Ronda and Mijas Pueblo. There is a natural trail that connects la Cala de Mijas to Marbella, where you can walk/cycle/run and enjoy the coastal scenery.

    You can easily find restaurants and bars within walking distance to the house, as well as grocery stores.

    There is a bus stop 10 minutes away from the house which can connect you to many different places around Mijas Costa.

    I am open to welcoming up to two workawayers, but if you prefer to come alone, that is also fine.
