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

The house is located on Vieques, a smaller tropical island off the mainland of Puerto Rico. A US territory, It is remote and romantically rustic. You should be comfortable with being off the grid and away from the hustle and bustle. This is a peaceful place to reconnect with yourself and mother nature. You will be surrounded by natural beauty and wild creatures on the islands including horses, birds, iguanas, bees, dogs, insects, roosters, etc. Vieques is a charming place to recharge, and our casita is a peaceful space to do it in.
At the Casita, we use solar power for lighting and charging our USB devices. Our shower is gravity fed, the toilet system uses gray water flushing, and there is a stove and oven for cooking with propane. There is a kitchen sink that is gravity fed as well. Two 600 gallon rainwater collection tanks store our water and there are two 55 gallon water tanks upstairs that uses a well pump to fill. A ladder on the first floor will take you up to the loft that contains a queen-sized bed with a zippable bug net and a breathtaking view to the sea. We do not live on the island full time so you need to be very self-sufficient. We are very communicative with our guests and will do everything we can to make sure everything goes smoothly for you. The house is a joy to be at and is very easy to maintain( daily sweeping inside, mop occasionally, and overall kept tidy to assure no insects or rodents are attracted and that the house is locked when not there. There is a weed whacker for yard maintenance and other tools. You will need to bring some items with you that we do not store there such as sheets, towels, and food.

Awesome experience with communicative owners

If you want to go off the beaten path i highly recommend this house sit, but beware you 100% off grid ! If you want to live the simple life and have a little casita on the hillside about 4km close to the beach this is your jam! Brandt and Susanna were very responsive if I needed anything and really want to make the casita and experience a joyful positive one.
