For 4 months until 11th July 2016 | Long Term

The beautiful wooden house is surrounded by jungle. Wake up to the sounds of birds and insects and watch monkeys play in the trees. The house is located in a private 8ha jungle reserve between two jungle villages. Experience the local life of farmers, and visit nearby lagoons, animal rescue center and national parks.

I`m looking for a responsible person or couple who will take care of my jungle off -grid, off-road house and my dog while I`m traveling for 4 months. You can also stay longer for free since there are 2 bed rooms in the house. Please also contact me if you can only house sit for one or two months or if you can only arrive later. I have no problem if four different house sitters take care of the house for 1-2 months each. But I would prefer a house sitter who can stay 4 months.

I`ll try to rent out 1 bed room via , so from time to time you will have some company. Your bed room is on the second floor and has a bed with a big mattress (for two people), a desk and shelves. There is gas stove and a big table in the house. There are two shared rain water showers and one shared toilet. There is NO electricity, Internet or TV in the house. Your cell reception or mobile internet might also be bad.

Please visit the ad and my facebook page “Reserva Copoazu” for more information on the house and its location.

The house is located in the northern jungle of Peru, close to the Amazon River, south of Iquitos, near the village Moralillo in a private jungle reserve called “Reserva Copoazu”. Please visit my facebook site “Reserva Copoazu”. In the photo album “Directions to the Reserva Copoazu” you find a detailed description how to get to the house.

Your tasks:

  • At least on person has to be in the house during the night. You can leave the house during the night (e.g. travel a few days) if guests are staying in the house and they are comfortable to be alone in the house.
  • Clean the house once a week and before guests arrive and after they leave. Change and wash linen of the guests. Collect fire wood for you and the guests.
  • Cut the paths with a machete once a month. It`s best to do a bit every week (1-2 hours).
  • Apply a mix of gasoline and used oil to the wooden floor one time after 2 months to protect it from termites. Check the house for termites once a week and apply anti-termite powder if you see termites on the outside, under or inside the house.
  • Buy dog food or cook and give my dog left overs (I will pay for it) and feed the dog twice a day. Clean his ears every second day, check for wounds and if necessary apply antiseptic. Everything you need is in the house. Walk, pet and play with the dog regularly.
  • If you like you can work in the garden. At the moment I only have a few sweet peppers.
