  • Description



    We are a young family that lives between Puerto Varas and Ensenada, in a beautiful place with forest, beach and beautiful views.

    We have a cabin that we rent online and we are now building a new 5x5 cabin, a 5x5 gym and a 5x5 carpentry shop, so we will have things to do and learn, we will not get bored hahaha.

    This year we will have to travel a lot to Santiago to take care of my parents, so we will need someone who can stay and help us prepare the cabin, receive new passengers from the cabin and maintenance.

    you can help me build and decorate our new cabin, gim and carpentry shop, In addition, our 4 year old daughter will be happy to share her games and learn with you as a way to practice language with each other.

    On the days that we are not at home, we need you to help us maintain the garden, the vegetable garden, maybe do something in the new cabin and take care of the house.

    we will share a lot so that you can get to know us and practice Spanish, we will guide you on places to visit and we will try to help you as much as possible.
    I hope you are interested in this experience and I invite you to read the comments that other volunteers have left

    See you !!

    *We can only receive one volunteer*

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We like to share our experience, suggest places to visit, share, practice English and Spanish, etc.

    The idea is to do things with joy, music and good conversation, to have a good experience.

    We will practice Spanish and English, we will eat typical dishes (mainly vegeterian) and you can enjoy the beach, forests and activities near the place where we live

  • Help


    The idea is that we work together
    I don't have an established schedule, I just hope you can help me for a few hours during the day and also have time to rest and tour the places around.

    Some days we can work a little harder and other days we can dedicate them to enjoy and get to know the area.

  • Languages

    Languages spoken
    Spanish: Fluent
    English: Intermediate

    This host offers a language exchange
    One day we speak only Spanish and the next day only English, So we all practice and learn hahahaha

  • Accommodation


    you can stay in your own cabin, with a separate bathroom and other amenities
    The idea is that you are comfortable and have your space to rest, study or work if you need it.
