  • Description


    Help a single mom with 2 adorable baby girls! Join our little female tribe in the beautiful city of Oaxaca! Looking for serious, dedicated workawayers who love kids (and don't have a hard time getting up in the morning). You will be expected to baby-sit in the mornings while I work from home. Please note that taking care of small children is HARD WORK. I am looking for someone who wants to be ACTIVE with the kids- take them for walks, organize activities. During the working hours, I expect you to be fully present and keep off your cellphone as much as possible. A minimum of 3 weeks is required.

    I work as a translator and have many connections in Oaxaca. I am interested in natural, holistic medicine, plants and herbs, spirituality, but also culture and mezcal... Our house is a 15 min bus ride from the city center. We live in a green, mountainy area with a big garden. Our house is a small, simple environment. You will have your own space but must be able to deal with the fact that the kids' presence is everywhere!

    I worked as a guide and have many connections in Oaxaca. I am interested in natural, holistic medicine, plants and herbs, spirituality, but also culture and mezcal... There are loads of those in Oaxaca and that's why I decided to live here. I am a vegetarian foodie, I love to cook and to eat!

  • Help


    Mostly, I need someone who can help me with the girls. This means playing with my 2.5-year-old daughter and her 8 months old baby sister while I work (from home), taking them to the market, to the park, painting, singing, dancing, reading stories... Any additional help with cooking, shopping and cleaning up would be greatly appreciated!

  • Accommodation


    Private room in my house, a 15 min bus drive from the center. It's a quiet, residential neighborhood, has a few shops and is very close to nature. If you like to go out at night, a cab drive home will cost you about 3 USD.

    I cook at least one hot (vegetarian) meal per day and there are always plenty of snacks in the fridge and around the house!! I will ALWAYS offer you a freshly ground and brewed coffee in the morning as that is my personal little luxury pleasure. I would greatly appreciate your help and inspiration in cooking / preparing healthy vegetarian meals as I sometimes run out of inspiration...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Please note that you will be living in a house with young children - their internal alarm clock goes off at 7 a.m. every day!!! Also, since we are vegetarian, we would prefer you not to bring any meat into the house. Other than that it's a friendly, relaxed environment! You can smoke in the garden, and enjoy a beer while talking about anything you like, I am a very open-minded person.
