    Description

    Nice to meet you!

    We are Samuel (4 years old), Alejandra (9 years old), Miriam (40 years old) and Daniel (40 years old) a family from Madrid very interested in having a living with you.
    Let us to briefly introduce ourselves. Samuel is a very joyful boy, always ready for playing specially in swimming pool, his favorite place in Summer. Alejandra is a nice and curious girl, attentive to all what may happen in her little world. No one of them need for special attention or have medical problems.
    This one will be our first experience with an international exchange at home. We are respectful, polite and without political or religion convictions. We love our respective jobs (entrepreneur in the education sector and logistics), but we try to balance them with our personal life. We are used to have international relationships in our jobs, so we don´t have cultural prejudices.

    We were born in Madrid where we live too. If you trace a straight line from the airport to city center (Sol) our 3-bedroom apartment is in the middle point, well connected to the city with public transport (metro and buses). For example, you can walk 10 minutes to the San Blas metro station, (line 7), or 20 minutes to Suances metro station (line 5). You can also take the 28 bus that goes directly to the Retito park on Alcalá Street.
    If you want to browser our neighborhood click here and have a look! The apartment has around 110 m2 surface where you would have you own room next to the children's, where we have a sofa that when opened is a 1.20 x 1.80 comfortable bed. You can see our pictures to show better how is the place.

    We are very interested in giving to our children a new living experience with a non-Spanish speaking person from another country with, why not? A different point of view about habits and everyday things, of course always in a respectful and polite framework. We want also Alejandra to practice English. We are sure she will help her brother Samuel to communicate with you.

    We are working until August 26, (we go on vacation on 27), needing at the same time your help to taking care of our children for 5 hours per day, from 9 am to 2 pm.
    The idea is you have breakfast with them, play with them and take them to the pool in the morning, (they love it).
    There is a lifeguard, but we would like you to pay attention to Samuel, since he is only 3 years old, (for this reason we would prefer that you do not look at your mobile when he is in the water to avoid any distraction). Miriam works from home and the pool is in our garden, so you will never feel alone with children.

    Afterwards, you can eat with us if you want or make your own plans every day, (we would only ask that during the week you do not arrive late because we get up early and the children wake up easily).

    Daniel arrive home around 3:30 pm and in the afternoon we return to the pool with the kids or make some family plans.

    We hope you can enjoy the experience a lot.

    Warms Regards
