  • Description


    Hello Amazing people out-there,

    We are a family of three, Luna my 6 year Old dog, Suki 1 year Old Cat and me.

    //***// Hosting from 1 month , but ideal looking for long term //***//

    I am an Ecuadorian girl, who are looking for friendly people to help me to care for my home, my pets and the garden. I travel a bit and need help to look after my home, my two babies Luna and Suki and my plants: walking with Luna, feed them and watering the plants.

    Friendship, respect and the environment are important values ​​for me. Live in a beautiful house. With an ideal location between Puerto Lopez and Montañita, it is quiet and clean, but you can still reach the city or the mile of the country party in a few minutes by bus. I live on the outskirts in the mountains, about 15 minutes walk from the village and 25 from the beach.

    You do not consume drugs and you are always responsible? Then feel free to contact me.
    Besides a fantastic ocean view and peace, we offer you free internet, own kitchen, a clean bed and private bathroom.

    At this moment we are on a quest for different personalities and skills :

    1) Long term stays as we both agree , we loved them
    2) Also looking for Language practice
    3) Yoga Teacher (don´t need to be certify but experience)
    4) Or just convince me I have to host you :-) (It worked already several times. Teach us about your skills and we will certainly consider your proposal. We love to learn.

    Works to do :
    Walking the dogs , in the option of house sitting
    Cleaning and maintaining the propriety
    Household duties

    **Also, after thinking about it for over half a year, we decided to set a minimum age limit at 30.

    Around the town there is great opportunity for exploring the beaches and local flora and fauna. Surfing is known to be very good in the area and is still largely unknown to most tourists. If you are looking for a great whale watching experience, then Ayampe is a must stop for you. Puerto Lopez, the near small-city is known to have some of the best whale watching opportunities on the coast. The migration of the humpback whale takes place from June to September.
    Puerto Lopez is also the gateway to Parque Nacional Machalilla. This large protected park created in 1979 also incorporates Isla de la Plata.
