    Description

    Hola workawayers!

    I am Nino (31 years old) and I live together with my mother and two active dogs. My mother is 60 years and has low vision, that means she is nearly blind. But from the middle of january she will work in the afternoon. I am working every day and have weekends off.
    We are usted to have people around our house from all over the world, but not anymore. My mum speaks just Spanish, but she understands some English. It would be good if you can speak a bit Spanish, but it's not necessary.

    Next to Santa Cruz you can see a lot of different nature and animals. At weekends we sometimes go out together. If we have time I can show you around in the city. We know a lot about the country and can give you good recommendations what to do here.

  • Help

    Help

    Mainly we look for someone who stays with us to help with daily tasks. For example gardening, weeding, cooking dinner, spend time with my mum, feed the dog etc. My mum looks for someone who spends time with her for example talking, playing games, hearing from travels or she loves when someone read a book to her.
    Monday till saturday we have a women who helps us from the morning till after lunch with cleaning and cooking, so you don't have to prepare lunch when she's here.
    Honestly there is not much work to do, we want to have someone around when we need it. But you will have enough spare time.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our house is in the principal avenue of the city, which is connected to the international airport.
    From our house it's 10 minutes by bus to downtown or 30 minutes walking. There you can shopping and you will find nice cafés. We can give you suggestions.
    Our area is pretty safe, so you don't have to worry. The supermarket and a small shopping mall is 3 blocks away from the house.
    There are many bus connections to different towns nearby. You can go for daytrips or go for sightseeing for max. 3 days in a row. This would be okay for us we just need to talk about. Because it's important for us that you have the chance to travel here as well.
