  • Description

    Description

    We live in Brasilito in the beautiful province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Our home is a few hundred meters from the most beautiful beaches in the world. I have 3 older children (20, 16, 15) who are in a local English speaking private school. I am looking for a person to help prepare meals for the family, and occasionally do light house work. Depending on your language and experience, I might also ask help with tutoring on homework. Shopping and food preparation would likely take about 3 hours daily, and less than one hour on cleaning and other help.

    The Costa Rica motto is: "PURA VIDA" meaning "The Good Life". The area where we live is very relaxed, and is a beach community. Here you will see the "true" Costa Rica as it is outside the city, and the people are open, kind and "good". If you like the beach and nature, you will love our location.

    I am looking for a person to help prepare meals for the family, and occasionally do light house work. Depending on your language and experience, I might also ask help with tutoring on homework. I am a single father raising three very intelligent and very independent older children (Boy 20, Girl 16 and Boy 15).

    The work week will be Monday through Friday or Saturday, and times will be around meal times. This will mean about 3 hours daily in shopping and meal preparation, and maybe an hour daily in other help, such as cleaning, tutoring or having fun with the kids.

    This is a beach community, so life is relaxing. During your free time you can ride horses at the beach or a nearby farm, visit nature reserves, swim in our pool, go jet-skiing, ride an ATV, ride a bicycle, get a massage, surf, skate board, or do any sport you want. You can go hiking, river rafting, snorkeling, scuba diving, zip-lining, whale-watching, bird-watching, volcano-watching or just get a tan on one of the gorgeous local beaches. There is a gym 5 minutes from our home, and an international airport (Liberia) just 45 minutes away. Nature is preserved in most of Costa Rica, and especially in our area. This means that sometimes the howler monkeys or parrots will want to talk to you at 6:00 in the morning...
