Hi: We are looking for independent and reliable house sitting couple for our 14 acre mountaintop Hacienda on the Caribbean island of Vieques PR. We have small, but charming guest/house sitter apartment with private garden enclosed patio and ocean views. Need to be willing to look after two small dogs as well as do a little mowing and gardening which could be on average 6 hours a week depending on rain.    August 1st to November 10.      Read more below.

Located on a remote hilltop farm adjacent to 28,000 acre wildlife refuge this is a hobby farm and not entirely a casual house sitting arrangement.  The guest apartment below the owners main residence has a bedroom living room and a full kitchen and bathroom with a washing machine.  Broadband internet may be provided as well as a two old toyota rav4s .  Requires at least 6 hours of labor every week to maintain property, including  mowing easy to use with zero turn mower.  On top of this there are three dogs which roam free on the 14 acres.  Fenced and gated we have never had any crime of any kind.  The owner will be able to be in constant contact for any questions or assistance.  Applicant will need to provide a security deposit of $250 at time of contract.

Able bodied single male or couple interested in living and working on a remote hobby farm on the island of Vieques.  This individual or couple should be prepared to work at maintaining the property for the 6 month period we will be gone an average of 6 hours each week.  We will overlap with you at both ends to provide training and a comfortable segue to life here on the farm and island.   Experience with gardening and it's appreciation is needed.  Someone who enjoys eating freshly harvested vegetables and fruit and wants to keep them coming could enjoy the pleasures we find here.  Also provided is a delapidated old toyota Rav4 for getting about the island. 

The island has very good quality markets and restaurants and great beaches to make life very comfortable for your stay.
