We are a couple in our 50's, have a beautiful jungle house in Cahuita, caribbean side, Costa Rica with a huge natural garden. looking for a couple to housesit for us .
we have 1 amazig dog (mix of labrador&pitbull that needs care and love....
it must be a couple, no kids. this property does not suit for a person alone.
No guests allowed (family or friends) of the housesiter coming over to visit.
there is good internet Wifi system, but sometimes not always... in the nights it might be slow, so, for people who depend or need it for their everyday precise hour work , it might be problematic
the internet is usually great for commmunication, but not for people that sit all day on the computer .
we pay the bills of the electricity+ internet.
food ,and gas bottles are on the sitters expenses
The sitters must be phisically in shape, and healthy, cause the dog needs walks and the property is big, and you need to be able to move around. we would love people that are initiative, creative ,calm, positive vibes, willng to do some light gardening and small house fixing stuff if they know.....
