  • Description


    I came to Puerto Rico with my business partner after hurricane Maria about 1.5 years ago to do disaster work. I am still here and expecting to start doing more disaster recovery work in a few months. My business partner is here about 50% of the time. I was a former Chef and don't feel like cooking often anymore so here I am. We have a 3 story house 1 block from the beach (walking distance) in a safe gated neighborhood on the south end of the island. You can see the whole beach from the top sun-deck. The beach is active with a lot of music, many people and the water is calm. They even serve Mojitos on the beach and there is a bar on the far side that has live music and foam parties sometimes. The whole south end and SW end is very friendly and family oriented and is home to some of the most amazing beaches. We also own 2 jet skis that we ride a few days per week and can take our guests to a few private islands where all the boats and jet skis go to anchor and enjoy the sun and fun! We need 1 or 2 individuals to cook and do some light cleaning in exchange for staying with us and we will also pay for all food and drinks.
    Not too much work for the beautiful, tropical experience in paradise.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Many people speak Spanish here and some are bi-lingual. We speak English and are trying to learn Spanish. We know a few bi-lingual business owners that have helped us tremendously. If you speak English and Spanish, that would help too but it is not a necessity.

    We need 2 individuals to cook and do some light cleaning for exchange for staying with us and we will also pay for all food. We will go to the grocery store every few days so you can select what you want to eat. You will not have a food or drink expense. If we happen to go out as a group, I will pay for all food and drinks.
    Not too much work for the beautiful, tropical experience.

    What else ...

    Every Monday, a stage is set-up before dark on the beach next to our house where they have several live popular singers perform and about 200 people set up chairs, bring drinks, food etc to enjoy the awesome music and atmosphere. We can hear the music from our house as if they right outside. It is a great time to enjoy the culture.
