About this assignment

Looking for an independent animal and nature lover to be a surrogate mom or dad for my 3 dogs, 2 cats and 4 chickens. Lovely farm in the mountains of southern Costa Rica near San Vito. Short trip for 8 days from July 4th to the 12th, 2019. Small renovated house with high speed internet, hot water shower, washing machine, and all amenities. Small organic greenhouse. Peace, privacy but only 15 minutes from town by car. There is no bus however, so transportation is an issue; taxis are available and cost $10 US to town. I provide all the animal food. I am willing to pay for the best care!

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Taking care of the animals and plants. Normal house keeping, giving lots of love and attention to my pets. The dogs live outside, the cats have their own door. Chicken house needs to be opened at 5am and closed at dark. Eggs need to be gathered. Dogs need to be walked daily. Cuddling with the kitties. Composting, weeding the little greenhouse and watering the plants.

What are the good features of the property and location

Beautiful mountain views, peace and tranquility, privacy, close to town.

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

This farm is isolated so you must be comfortable with your own company. There will be NO CAR so trips to town will be few.
Speaking Spanish or having the desire to learn Spanish will be helpful. There is also help available nearby for problems. A local telephone will be essential.
