D'Hanis, ranch, San Antonio

For l year |

Looking for retired couple familiar with country life. Wanting to trade furnished living quarters (electricity, propane, and water provided) in original farm house (OR facilities for your RV) in return for looking after ranch in my absence. This would include feeding cattle, horses, and pets (cats and dogs). Occasional assistance with ranch work would be appreciated, and handy-man skills useful. Ranch is located 7 miles north of D'Hanis, which is on Hwy. 90 west of San Antonio. Must be able to operate tractor for cattle feeding in winter, and occasional shredding in summer. My new house has an above-ground pool which will need looking after in hot weather, and would be available for your use IN MY ABSENCE. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful place under giant live oak trees to enjoy your retirement years, please contact me. References will be required. I am looking for a long-term arrangement, but you would have the freedom to travel and leave as often as you like - just so long as we can coordinate our absences. Enjoy the lighted pavilion with BBQ pit and picnic table on summer afternoons, or the campfire ring in winter. Plenty of wildlife watching and solitude. Lake Amistad (Del Rio) and Medina Lake (Bandera County) are nearby for fishing and/or boating, plus antique shopping and dining in Castroville, Bandera, Boerne, Comfort, and Fredericksburg in the Hill Country. If this sounds like the good life to you, then I look forward to hearing from you!
