    Description

    My companion, Amelia and I are creating a little paradise on our 2 acres of land here in a beautiful mountainous area in Nayarit, near to the Santa Maria del Oro crater lake. Amelia is Mexican. I was born in England and I acquired Mexican nationality after living in Nayarit for many years. We both love to travel and meet people from all over the world, especially those with a sense of humour! We enjoy having international visitors here as guests and to learn about their home and experiences. I am a keen gardener.

    Help

    We need help mainly with the maintenance of the place, painting, landscape gardening and cleaning of our four rental accommodations. I usually have other projects and at the moment I am tiling some floors and doing some landscaping. I may soon start on the building of a shade house with hammocks.
    Meals would be self catered, as we provide you with a trailer that has a refrigerator, stove and cooking utensils. You are welcome to pick fruit such as papayas, guayabas etc. and take some fresh eggs from the chicken coop for your breakfast. There are some nearby stores.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is transport via combis to the town of Santa Maria del Oro, which is 15 minutes away, and from Santa Maria del Oro there is very efficient and plentiful transport to Tepic. The attractive Santa Maria del Oro lake is just 5 minutes away by car and 20 minutes walking.
    I am usually available to take you in my car to and from Santa Maria del Oro to some shopping.
    A stream with a swimming hole borders the property, there are shade houses, a wi-fi area in front of our house, a barbecue area and outdoor kitchen, table football and a pool table.
    We maintain a huge tropical garden with fishponds and many exotic plants.
    It is a beautiful area for hiking, biking (we can lend you two bicycles), bird watching and kayaking (you may rent kayaks at the lakeside). If you enjoy being in close contact with nature then you will love this place!
