We have a small exotic rustic private island located in represa de Betania a 7000 hectareas lake that generates electricity. The whole island belong to us and only 2 keepers live permanently in the place. You will enjoy the magnificent views from every place.
My husband and I speak english fluently as we have live many years in USA. We both have degrees. We have three kids but they live in USA.
We are looking for somebody who enjoys nature and could help us in cleaning the debris that water brings to the sourrandings of the island. We also need help in general maintainance like painting, gardening,cleaning and all other ideas are welcome.
Island is only visit by people we invite. We do not live in the island but we spend all weekends there.
Keep in mind that there is limitations and you will not be able to be going out of the island frequently and at night time is impossible so you really need to love being in an island with no places to go for drinks or to eat. The port is 5 min away from the island but it is very rustic and the traffic is from workers of fish farms in the lake. Neiva is a big city 40 min away from the island.
