We’re looking for somebody to stay in our home on the beach in Ecuador from near the end of August to the beginning or middle of Oct. Dates are somewhat flexible right now, and due to Covid, may change entirely.
Although the house is a newer build and we aren't expecting problems, someone with practical problem solving as well as handyman skills would do best on the coast of Ecuador. Spanish speaking is a huge asset but not absolutely necessary. No smoking in the house. Must be good with cats.
Care duties include one indoor-only cat, one indoor-outdoor dog, and plenty of plants to water. We also have a family of burrowing owls to enjoy. You would need to go in person at the beginning of each month to pay internet and electric, we will provide the funds. We don’t have a car but busses go by frequently and cabs are inexpensive.
The house is comfortably furnished for one or two people. We do not have cable or satellite tv but the internet is good for streaming services such as Netflix. This time of year is generally quiet with few tourists, and the weather is warm but not hot. The house is only meters from the ocean where you can swim, body board, or comb the beach for hours. This housesit is ideal for somebody looking to relax and unwind.
