About this assignment

My hope is to find an individual or couple who will over-see care of our villa here in Nayarit, Mexico while we are absent during the low season. The villa is 4 levels all together. Different levels, though connected by an interior staircase, are independent of each other as suites have their own kitchenettes and bathrooms and balconies. There may be guests on the 3rd level during this time period who may book through airbnb or VRBO. I have a property manager so care of guests is in his capable hands though a welcome on your part and sharing of house "how to's" helps and is hoped for.


What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Overseeing care of home and garden: Water plants as needed. Make sure housekeeper cleans thoroughly. Housekeeper comes 2 days a week and attends to all areas of cleaning from dusting to mopping. Be adept trouble shooters: Make sure all is in working order, ask that lights are replaced as needed, etc. We have a handyman/ landscaper who comes every Wednesday, full day, who can attend to any "fix it" or "replace it" needs should they occur. Your job will be to point out any house needs as soon as noticed and report anything that goes amiss to me and property manager.

What are the good features of the property and location

The Villa is located on the hillside that overlooks the entire Chacala Bay. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach. The Villa is located in town, but remains very private. Villa has 4 bedroom suites (2 of which have kitchenettes), 5 bathrooms and one main kitchen, and living area. Villa also has cable television, AC and WiFi. Chacala is an amazing coastal village nestled alongside the most beautiful beach in all of Nayarit according to Moon's Pacific Coast of Mexico. You can see more pictures at our website. Write to us through MindMyHouse for the address.

What’s being offered:
1. To start with: Villa’s Studio and after my daughter, current host departs end of May, you will move to owner's suite on 1st level also known as Garden level. Vila is located in an Extraordinarily Beautiful Beach Village = Chacala, Nayarit, Mexico!
2. Full use of main kitchen, bar, living room and dining area.
3. WiFi, Cable T.V., electricity & propane gas included
4. Essentially you have no rent to stay in one of the world’s most beautiful settings in X-change for: DEVOTED care of villa, greeting & welcoming of vrbo and/or airbnb guests (few & far between in summer months but hopefully we'll have some guests as they help pay the villa's upkeep costs...)
Chacala has markets that can supply all the basics, a veggie and fruit market that's devoted to presenting the freshest selection, tortilla factory, fish markets and multiple restaurants.


What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

Villagers are friendly and internationals who have discovered Chacala appreciate its specialness and are a great group!
Summer time is the rainy season in this part of Mexico which is refreshing when it occurs -- usually evenings. Though we have internet, VOIP phone service, cable t.v., abundant lighting throughout home, losing electricity for a day during a summer storm can and does happen. It could be a whole town event which is usually a better condition than just our neighborhood event as "the fix" happens more quickly when it's the whole town that lost power.
Last but not least, we will give special consideration to any person or couple who would like to contribute a couple hrs a week to working with our primary school children. Our primary school is very small (17 students all together, 1st - 6th grade and the school yr ends July 7 and resumes August 18). This hoped for link up is not a make or break deal, more like the icing on the cake deal if the most important component is in place and that is: vigilant villa care = Being observant, pointing out a roof leak, plugged toilet, torn screen, tile crack at onset & contacting our property manager who will send the pros to fix as needed, when needed.
