  • Description


    Hello Workawayers,
    My name is Bárbara I'm 35 years old and I live near to Coquimbo in a farm area which is called Pan de Azúcar.
    I work in a Hostel in La Sarena and am a Tourguide too.
    I will travel to Temuco and Rancagua this December 21st to January 5th and I need a couple could stay in my home, water the trees. Is a beautiful place with a lot of birds and two dogs Tomate (brown) and Pepa (Black).
    I do not have a tv, you can use my computer were you can have internet.
    I a very peaceful place.

    Because I work a lot and spent less time at home I need your help to turn my place step by step into a beautiful oasis.
    We would live together in my house where you have your own room to stay. I would offer your breakfast and in the evenings we could have a nice talk.
    I could show you La Serena and Coquimbo or we can do a trekking tour. There is a lot to do here so it will never become boring with me :)
    If you want to spend your Freetime in the bigger cities around you can take a bus or do hitchhiking.

    Also, I am looking for someone who wants to teach me another language and I could help you with your Spanish.
    I am very interested in learning German because I have german roots but all other languages are welcomed too
    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions :)

    You are going to experient life in the Chilean countryside and will improve your Spanish skills. In exchange, I hope to improve my English or learn another language. In addition to that you get to know Coquimbo and La Serena explained by a local :)

  • Help


    Help is needed in lots of different tasks and any special skills are very welcomed.
    My property is very big and the garden needs a glow-up: The trees need to be watered and I would love to build a fireplace, a greenhouse and a composter. I also have the vision of my own vegetable field.

    Also in my house is something to do: I could need help to fresh up my bathroom and create a shower curtain.

    During the time I am not at home I need someone who takes care of my house too.
