  • Description


    This is my home, art studio and healing center in the wilderness on the water! Part time rental is randomly active to have guests and so I could use some short time helpers in between (weekend) guests. It could be a week - 3 weeks of needed help, as the healing centre is going on the market. The main goal is to continue maintaining, enjoy this fabulous place with the volunteers and friends of our culture, it is UNIQUE.

    SPECIAL LOOKOUT for 1-2 caretakers to mind the house for July and August-- the house is not taking in paying guests during this time. One must be durable for the heat and maintain the property with general maintenance, mowing, some gardens. Must have a vehicle and references to review and then discuss matters by phone. If you from the north and haven't experienced the southern heat during July & August don't bother, you won't survive....A/C is not in the picture but fans are sufficient and cold outdoor showers is great.
    This place is located on tranquil Native American grounds which slowly (over 200 years) developed into a rustic community. You can entertain yourself with nature walks, canoeing and fishing. There are great places to visit, explore and experience our culture, all within close distances. Inquire for more details. The embodiment of positive energy, mindfulness and quality work we enjoy the time sharing basic needs in a safe environment.

    I am a multi-talented practicing artist and experienced carpenter with expertise in historical restoration, solar passive concepts. I worked 10 years as a property developer for Belize ecology & wildlife projects and a guesthouse. The guesthouse is my biggest accomplishment as it was built using recycled materials all completely from scratch. A super cool place on the lake now used for retreats and guests.
    As a board member I have helped to develop an Art & Culture Center. Our progress and popularity is nationally and internationally recognized by its unique activities and devotion with warm hospitality and mindfulness.

    The Art Culture Community Center that I am associated with is a non profit and this is the hub of a lot of activities and
    volunteers are welcome there too, randomly. The above information applies and if any questions please inquire. You can find both places on u tube.
