We have a four bedroom house about 2 km from the beach near La Manzanilla, Jalisco, Mexico. For this house we need a caretaker and also a person who can do general maintenance such as minor repairs to roof, windows or do painting. The idea is to rent the rooms to tourists and in this we also need assistance as well as the marketing on the web. feel free to contact us for more information.
You can experience the living and culture of a very small mexican community, learn how things are done by rural folks like cooking on fire, hand-made tortillas etc.. we are also planting an organic garden, so a green thumb is an advantage :-). So far only some Moringa trees are in that garden so your help would be appreciated!
We, the owners, do not live permanently in the house but when we are not there a neighbour is looking after the house and also has the keys.
You would need to prepare your own food when owners are not on property but in that case we only ask for 15 hours of contribution per week.
