About this assignment

We're looking for a housesitter who is comfortable in a very rural, natural environment. We live in the middle of forest, separated from the road by a small river. We need someone who will not cancel last minute under any circumstances.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

To feed our three dogs twice a day. Other farm/garden activities are optional. You will be able to harvest much of your own food, and should come a couple of days before our departure so we can show you which trees are fruiting and how to make the most of the vegetable and herb garden.

What are the good features of the property and location

We live surrounded by nature, there are countless birds, you wake to the sound of howler monkeys in our 90 hectares of protected forest. We have 120 different species of fruit and nut tree and a thriving vegetable and herb garden. You can spend your time swinging in the hammock looking out onto countless trees. The dogs are cute and friendly. This is a place to relax, eat from the earth, live slowly.
We have fibre optic wifi and a lot of books.

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

We have a composting toilet, so human waste can be recycled back into the land once it's decomposed. Housesitters won't need to deal with the solid waste but will occasionally need to empty the pee receptacle.
The nearest town is 25 minutes away.
