    Description

    Hi everyone, we are a family of 4: me (43), my husband (46), my daughter who is in her teens and my son who is 9 . Our summer routine is quite quiet because I have holidays during this time. We normally wake up at around 7.00 and we are going for a walk and after that we have breakfast. We have lunch at 13:00h and in the afternoon we are going to the beach. Dinner is often at around 20-20.30. However, my summer schedule is pretty flexible as I'm on holidays. I'd love to welcome someone we can practice our English with. This is actually my main aim (improving my speaking skill). Besides language practice, I'd also like someone who can give me a hand with the house work, such as ironing, handing clothes, tidying our garage, and little things like those.
    When staying home, I recommend you to have a vehicle to move around as the public transport here is pretty bad. But, we can always lend you a bycicle to go around our area.
    Satudays and Sundays will be the days when you're off, and the rest of the days, if it's ok, you are going to do the stuff required, which will never be any longer than 5 hours.

    Help

    The required help will be generally helping in the house...things like (cleaning, tidying, ironing, hanging up clothes...) I don't have a big garden but I have lots of potting plants and it takes some time to water them all. I would also like my daughter and my son, as well as me, practice some English. Our level is basic-intermediate but we'd love to learn it better. My husband can't speak any ...

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have a big house in a small village in the southern part of Mallorca. It just takes 5 to 10 minutes to the beach. Our workawayer will have his/her own bedroom and bathroom. Kitchen and living room will need to be shared.

    What else ...

    Where we live is a remote area, when off there's the possibility to go to any beach around here, visit any other place by bus or if I'm also off, I can show you around. There is a wonderful sea-side as well as nice traditional villages. We are close to a tourist destination but not so influenced by it. To reach the capital will take you 1 hour and there's a bus stop 20 meters from home.
