We are a 'familia numerosa' of 8 with 6 boys aged 13, triplets aged 12, a 3 year old and 10 month old! Our house is busy and sometimes noisy, but people are normally surprised how calm it is! We are relaxed and easy going but always have a lot going on. Every summer we rent out our beautiful home and go on an adventure. this year we are looking for some help to sort the house and garden out before we go.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We live in a really beautiful area by the sea in Javea on the Costa Blanca. Its an area renowned for cycling, hiking and water sports including surfing. We are English but our children are fluent in Spanish and Valenciano as well.
We are looking for someone who is happy to muck in and provide general help around the house; cleaning, tidying and watching the younger children whilst we get the house ready for summer rentals. We also need help in the garden with weeding and tidying and some painting. A bit of evening babysitting would be great too.
We can offer a comfortable double bedroom in our 5 bedroomed, 3 bathroomed villa. It has lovely open views, a huge garden, several terraces and swimming pool. The bedroom is on the ground floor and has patio doors leading to the naya. We are happy for guests to eat with us at meal times and/or for them to use our kitchen and cooking facilities. The house is spacious with satellite t.v. and WIFI.
If over 25 we can offer use of a car to get around. There is a bus service but the nearest bus stop is a 15 minute walk away. Otherwise, it is hilly and to walk to the main sandy Arenal beach area takes around 35 minutes. The area is stunningly beautiful with numerous beaches, walks and hiking trails and diving and water sports. There are loads of restaurants and bars and a picturesque old town and fishing port.
