The Experience

I am looking for serious travelers who are willing to put in some easy work in return for accommodation. We appreciate some motivation and initiative in helping to keep the place clean and to get it ready for the next group on changeover days. When not working you are free to explore the area which has loads to offer, we are not far from the famous Puerto Banus and the Old Town of Marbella. Bus connections from the Diana Commercial Centre.

I had a great time at the Cortijo with Peggy, Manolo and the other employees. Great environment, atmosphere and surroundings. Marbella and Estepona are lovely towns and it is also easy to travel to other pretty villages around the area. Would love to go back someday. Thanks Peggy for welcoming us.

A passada por el cortijo, foi incrível! O trabalho é justo, estivemos ali fazendo pintura e manutenção nos apartamentos em troca tinhamos um flat a nossa disposição e maquinas de lavar. Peggy, Manolo, Linda e todos os outros foram sempre impecáveis conosco! Foi uma passagem linda! Gracias chicos!!!

So glad you had a good time, thank you both for the great help, would love to have you both back again one day, let me know when you need a holiday in Marbella! Good luck for the future xx


Hola! First, since I applied, Peggy it was always ready to help and answer my questions. I had a private room, with all the facilities that we need(an equipped kitchen, laundry, towels, wifi...) and then you’ll meet and work with Manolo! Manolo mi “socio”, fue un gran placer conocerte y pasar días contigo. Me río mucho con tu alegría, humor y aprendí mucho no solo sobre cómo hacer que las cosas funcionen bien en el lugar, sino con tu sencillez y espontaneidad para vivir la vida, gracias por todo, ya te extraño mi amigo!Te deseo lo mejor! Gracias Peggy por tu hospitalidad !Besos a todos!;*

Cómo primera experiencia de worldpacker no podría haber sido mejor. Estuve un mes ayudando en el Cortijo con la pintura. Las horas de trabajo eran flexibles y para nada agotadoras. Tenia tiempo para hacer mis cosas y recorrer los alrededores. Manolo es un excelente compañero de trabajo, nos divertimos mucho.
Gracias por confiar y darme la oportunidad!

Gracias por la ayuda Pau! Os echamos de menos! Besooo xx


Es mi 1° experiencia worldpackers y no podría ser mejor. Peggy es una excelente anfitriona y Manolo todo un genio. Trabajamos a diario con Manolo y los demás worldpackers en un muy buen clima. El trabajo esta muy bien y además te queda tiempo libre para otras cosas.
El lugar es un sueño y creo que en verano cuando el clima permite el uso de la piscina puede ser aun mejor. Así y todo, el invierno es este hermoso paraíso de la costa del sol tiene su encanto. Tanto es así que he alargado mi estadía en el Cortijo. Con cada trabajo que realizamos uno se siente parte de este hermoso lugar. Gracias

About the host

I was young once 😊 and can imagine this is a great way for you to see the world and keep it affordable. I will be happy to contribute to this idea in return for some help 😎 Work will be easy and never more than 5-6 hours per day so you can enjoy the rest of the time off :-) If you speak both English and Spanish reasonably you will get preference!
