  • Description


    Hi everyone, we are a family of 4: me (45), my husband (48), my daughter who is in her teens and my son who is 11. Our summer routine is quite quiet because I have holidays during this time (July and August). 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 about 14:00h and in the afternoon we often go 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 housework, such as ironing, hanging clothes, tidying and little things like these. Really, I would like someone who wants to play with my son so that he can learn/practice English. He loves playing basketball and doing sports.
    When staying home, you can take the bus. You can catch the bus in a village next to our house. But, we can always lend you a bicycle to go around our area.
    Saturdays 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.
    I'm also interested in yoga, better said, in restorative yoga as it really helps my body and mind function better!

  • 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


    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.
