Furbabies in the Rainforest are Looking for Doting Couple
Our little menagerie of pets is looking for a mature couple to dote on them in their rain forest home.
Our Home & Location
Our home is situated at the end of the "road" in the rain forest of Costa Rica. It is EXTREMELY quiet (except for the occasional Toucans and the Howler Monkeys) and secluded, is excellent for bird watching from the second floor balcony, and has lots of great hiking opportunities. We are located about 10 min. from the village of Ojochal and 15 min. from beautiful, expansive beaches. There are lots of day trip excursions in the surrounding area; zip-lining, sport fishing, diving, surfing, wildlife reserves, etc. There is also a myriad of volunteer opportunities available within the Southern Zone should you wish to get involved with the community.Our home does have WiFi but no cable TV (or any type of TV channels), however we have over 2000 DVDs of movies and TV seasons that are on-hand. We are an American couple who built our home to American standards and have all of the modern "luxuries" even though we live off-grid. DO NOTE: the living area is located on the second level of our house. We DO NOT have railings on the balcony so if you are afraid of heights, this is not the home for you. Transportation is not included; we are 7 km. from the nearest bus stop, so a 4 wheel drive rental vehicle is required. This time of the year is considered the "Green" season because we do get rain and everything is very green. Since we live on the side of a mountain, it is cooler than along the beach, daytime temps will be around 70-85 degrees. We do require a couple due to the fact that we are in a secluded area and, for our peace of mind, we ask that two people be present.
Responsibilities & Pets
Sami (Perisan) and Snoopy (Ragdoll) are fairly low maintenance for long haired cats - they require food, litter box cleaning and brushing. We adopted two domestic short hair kittens about 2 years ago and they have finally calmed down and pretty much keep to themselves. Our dog, Smokey, is also a rescue. We have only had him 4 months and he is still settling in. His owner passed away in her sleep so he is finally getting over his fear of abandonment. He is not very active and prefers to just stay inside but he loves to go for car rides.
Since we do live off-grid, the hybrid hydro/solar system needs daily monitoring but maintenance is quite minimal. A gardener comes once a week to clean up around the exterior....
Please note: our house is for sale and therefore our home should be kept in presentable condition should a realtor wish to show it (you will have 24 hours notice prior). + More info
