One person for HORSE & CAT CARE & another for GARDEN, MAINTENANCE (& Cats) ETC. - From NOW for a few months. (We are happy with long stays) DO YOU LOVE HORSES, CATS, BEAUTIFUL BEACHES, NATURE AND A RELAXED LIFESTYLE?

We are looking for two responsable, patient, easy going, with positive communication, who loves Horses (and has experience)..
Also looking after our 4 cats.

To look after our 26 year old horse who is healing well from a fracture just above her back right hoof.
Daily care (7 days a week) for Topaz would be; give homeopathy, Chinese medicine more than four times a day. Food, water & clean the land. 

Casas Karen is a natural, eco-minded business between a forest and the sea. We rent eco-houses: traditional Spanish all-thatched houses, an original old farmhouse, and other studios. We’re situated in a beautiful spot, one minute walk from a large forested natural park, great for walks and jogs, and five minutes walk from the wild Atlantic sea excellent for surfing, windsurfing, Kitesurfing and swimming.  Check out our website!

The owner is Karen. She’s originally from Belgium, and spent some time in the UK. She has been in Los Caños de Meca for around 30 years. She loves nature, hiking, languages (she speaks five!), veggie food, and is interested in personal development like The Work of Byron Katie & J. Krishnamurti, alternative lifestyles and medicine.

In low season you will stay in a small caravan, or a room in a house. During the summer months you will have a small caravan to stay in. A bit hot during the day in summer months - has a fan which helps! There’s another space where the kitchen is, to cook for yourself (we do not prepare meals, we do supply food). A separate outhouse with a hot shower in low season.  It’s not the Ritz, but if you like a quirky place to live, it’s pretty awesome.

 The work here would suit someone independent, responsible, and patient. Ideally 25 or older. We love all nationalities, and Spanish is not required, but is obviously an advantage. Preferably a non-smoker and someone who doesn't drink too regularly. It would be a great escape for an artist, or writer, or generally someone who appreciates spending time in a peaceful eco-friendly retreat.

We’re aiming for a minimum of a month stay. We are very happy with long stays. 


20 to 35 hours a week, this can vary from one week to another. We can also adjust when some weeks have been more, at some point other weeks can be less.

1. The horse carer´s core tasks include caring for our horse.
If you´re open to it, we can allways use an extra hand around the land.

2. The land, garden carer´s core tasks include gardening, watering, maintenance etc..

Various other skills are useful, and what you’ll do will depend on what you can offer. 

If you’re interested, send us a message.

IMPORTANT: at the top of your message please include
- the dates you’re thinking about arriving and departing, and
- your phone/ WhatsApp /Skype contact details
so we can get in touch faster! :) Thank you!
