We have an Ocean front beach house on the pacific coast, which we have partially for private use as well as the renting of two fully furnished apartment.
We are looking for a retired person preferably single house-sitter/carekeeper not only to see that all is well and take care of our dog, but to also welcome our guests, hand them the key to their apartment, kindly assist them if needed, etc and do some minor things like raking the leaves of our almond trees, cleaning the outside tables in the mornings, feed the dog and maybe a small repair of a faucet for example.
We have a cleaning lady that takes care of the cleaning of the apartments after the guests leave, washes all the linens and towels. etc. A gardener comes regularly as needed.
The apartment that we have for the house-sitter is a Studio apartment, fully equipped, with 3 Murphy beds 1 single and two doble . Enough storage space in the apartment, and a bathroom with a wall to wall closet. Two of the Murphy beds (the single one and one of the double one) when the bed is up have two couches.
The Apartment has Wi-Fi, a flat screen TV s, air-conditioning and ceiling fan, big refrigerator, microwave, stove/oven, a washing machine would be there for you to use.
The electricity is quite expensive in Costa Rica so we do ask to be careful with the use of it specially the airco.
There is public transportation on the main road and the walking distance is about 10 min. No grocery shops or other in the direct area, therefor you would need a car or public transportation.
This is a rough description of the place and our needs.
If you are interested and have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting me.
