This is very short notice and short-term, so best for someone already in Ecuador or heading here shortly. Could become an ongoing gig, and more than likely, you'd be welcome to stay on extra days after I return, if you care to.

We are in the early stages of developing this project, so the main thing we need is simply the security of knowing someone will be there at night. Last time we were away, someone moved themselves into our yoga loft! Knowledge of Spanish would be helpful, for communicating with our neighbors. 

If you are interested in helping fix up the place, building, gardening, pruning, etc. we would love to have you and might be able to negotiate having you stay after we return, in late January.

We have a basic kitchen: refrigerator, toaster oven, one electric burner, electric kettle, Vitamix(!), dishes and utensils. What we don't have is an oven, but we are in the process of building a solar oven, so that might be available to you. Sleeping options are inside on a mattress, or in the screened kitchen, in hammocks. We do have wifi.
