We are a Costa Rican austrian couple in their 50's who own and run a B&B and art studio. We are centrally located in Escazu, the nicest quarter of San Jose, Costa Rica. We have a beautiful home, and we are very relaxed. My husband Otto is a programmer and I am an artist. We work from home and like to travel around the country selling our souvenir line. We love our small 4 bedroom B&B business, we meet people from all over the world.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Travelers can enjoy the natural beauty of Costa Rica and can learn about creating and managing small businesses and building a lifestyle that is based on loving what you do.
We would like a nice person with a healthy lifestyle, clean, gentle and considerate, who can teach me to use Illustrator CS6, I am a painter taking a leap into graphic design. I am not interested in photography. I work with a brush. I need to learn to photograph my work and pass it easily from my phone or i-pad into illustrator in my computer, and take that image and do all these amazing wonders you can do with illustrator. I plan to design a series of 3 marine bandanas and would like to have someone next to me in front of my computer to help me, in order to direct my own learning, hands on the project.
Please do not apply unless you are an expert in CS6 Illustrator
We have a small but comfy room with private bathroom, a queen size bed, garden view and high speed wifi.
We provide the food and would like our workawayer to share in the meal preparation. Even though we eat everything and will indulge sometimes, we eat healthy for the most part, we like to eat well so we spend quite some time in the kitchen. We buy from local farmers and our greens are organic. We love to try foods from all over the world, so if you like to cook it will be an added bonus, otherwise we would be very happy if you help with the dish washing.
We are 3 blocks from the bus stop and within walking distance to the town center, convenience stores, banks etc. For day trips there are volcanos, beaches and mountains to explore just 1.5 to 2hr away.
