  • Description


    We are a family of 6: Edu, Livia, our baby girl Nina, 2 dogs and a cat, living in slow, quiet and beautiful Barra de Ibiraquera. Edu and I used workaway as volunteers while traveling the world, and now proudly turn to the platforms as hosts.

    Long story short: we need to go away for a week and need help sitting the house and pets.

    Soooo.... looking for a mature, responsible, independent, loving person or couple to enjoy this piece of paradise. We also have a few tools, lots of wood and many ideas in mind — so if you happen to know how to work with wood, it’s a big plus.

    We offer accommodation in your own bedroom in the house, with private bathroom. Public transport is a bit on the low side, so u can use our bike to explore the surroundings. There's wifi, a big garden and many house projects to work on if you are so inclined. Get creative - we'll love it. ;)

    Ibiraquera is known for its beautiful surf friendly beaches and untouched nature to appreciate around.

    It's a typical small Santa Catarina town, where traditions are strong and much of the local culture may be experienced.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Edu and I are brazilians, living in Portugal for 2 years now. Aljezur is a typical Portuguese village, where much of the traditions are still alive (u can get food directly from the farmers, fish from the fisherman, enjoy the local festivities such as the sardines and sweet potato festivals, etc). We look forward to exchaning in many ways: stories, recipes, ideas, etc.

    It’s pretty basic “keep the house clean, the pets fed and have a good time” kind of deal. As we’ll be away, we do not provide food. But.... u get to have the house to yourself (which is a nice break from long travels and crowded hostel rooms, sometimes). \o/

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Ibiraquera is a nature oriented place. Not much of a social life, but amazing beaches, waves, trails and historic sights. The sun shines here 300 days of the year, which makes it nice to be outside.

    In the house we are very laid back and chill. Mostly spend our time listening to music, watching surf videos, hanging out with friends and now taking care of the little one. Edu is a surfer and a brewer (yes, we make our own beer) and Livia is a gemini, meaning she is a jack of all trades, master of none, always trying new things (from meditation to kabbalah to drumming to african dancing... Depends on the day).
