Emilio is a really nice and flexible guy and he mostly lets you decide what you want to do and at what times. The most important thing for him is that you enjoy your stay at Gran Canary, so I most certainly did!! :-) I had enough free time to explore the whole island, which is really beautiful! I worked/travelled alone, but I was always welcome to hang out at Emilio's place. Great experience, thank you Emilio!

It was a really good experience. Work was not hard (you are free to use your imagination), the guest house is super comfortable, and it's near to an amazing beach.
