What are the good features of the property and location

A really old farm that has been neglected for a long time with beautiful views, fantastic bird watching opportunities, a lot of space and land that if you have an idea for a project I would be willing to entertain the idea and allow you to implement your project if it would benefit the farm. The location is remote and quiet.

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

You will be living on a working farm in a remote location and will be expected to help out. The farm has been neglected and we are working to restart it on a low budget in the most sustainable manner possible. This region of Ecuador is hot and dry. Working the land here can be difficult and tiring. You will be fairly solitary on the farm, removed from towns or cities. So this opportunity, although a unique and exciting one, can be a real challenge.
