  • Description


    We’re a young couple from California. After traveling for 4 years we decided to settle in the exciting city of Medellin. My daughter will turn 5 months in October and I could really use a hand with her. Since I’m trying to raise a multi-lingual child, it’s a requirement that you speak French, Portuguese or Mandarin as we already speak English and Spanish in the house. Minimum length is 2 weeks.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are digital nomads, we work from home and coffee shops. Colombia is a great place to learn Spanish because 95% of the people you’ll meet will only speak Spanish. Since we speak English and Spanish fluently, you may practice with us as well. We can hook you up with a private Spanish tutor that charges around 50,000 COP per hour, suggest Spanish schools and language exchanges. There are plenty of them in the evening almost every night of the week!

    We’re looking for someone to take my girl off my hands so that I can work. Someone who can interact with her in French, Portuguese or Mandarin ONLY. Play games, invent games and help with house chores when she naps.

  • Accommodation


    We’re located in Envigado. Nearby offers over 40 restaurants ranging from vegan, Peruvian, burgers, pizza and several sushi spots. Within steps, you’ll have several lunch options for $2.50 - 3.00 US including my favorite Peruvian restaurant which sometimes offers ceviche.

    You’ll have your own room with a semi-shared bathroom. We offer breakfast Monday through Friday and an ample kitchen with the basic spices for you to cook.

    What else ...

    We have an amazing terrace, a friendly cat and we live in a lively yet quiet neighborhood. Poblado is 10 - 15 minutes on Uber and the metro stops are 15 minutes by foot. The giant mall Viva is also around the corner and is a great hangout spot. Since we've been in Medellin for over a year, we know the city pretty well. Looking for a place to make new friends? To hike over the weekend? Trivia? Just ask!
