I live in Vieques, Puerto Rico, a beautiful island in the Caribbean. I need someone to look after my animals when I go away.
This involves feeding a bunch (9) of cats twice a day, feeding 2 dogs twice a day and looking after (15 or so) chickens; watering, feeding and collecting eggs. The dogs are healthy, happy and well-adjusted -- very good company.
The house is a "work in progress", with plenty of space and all of the basic amenities. It has a comfy, rustic Caribbean ambiance, including the sound of frogs at night and the rustle of palms in the breeze. That said, there are neighbors close by, and their geese and roosters can make a lot of noise, especially at dawn. Yard maintenance is not required, beyond sweeping the patio and watering plants close to the house. You will have a car to drive.
I have already found a housesitter for my yearly fall trip. This listing is for a shorter trip, 2-3 weeks in May (coming right up!), which is a really nice time to experience the island. I am keeping the dates open until I find someone.
Well, thanks for reading this. I look forward to hearing from you!
