  • Description

    Description

    We live on a farm in the mountain in a rainforest type of environment, with lots of streams and waterfalls in the area. We have also a house on the beach on the west coast of Puerto Rico, where we do short term vacation rentals.

    Must like dogs! We have eight rescue dogs that will appreciate any attention you can give.

    Our latest project is building a treehouse for rental here on the farm. we would love to have help with this, starting as soon as possible.

    The farm is where we need the most help, since we are still in recovery mode from hurricane maria. the gardens are in desperate need of attention. ..and the dogs always need some extra love! sometimes we just need people to farmsit while we are off on errands/
    Occasionally we may need help with resetting the rooms at the beach (cleaning and laundry)

    We prefer helpers who can stay at least 4-6 weeks and are always on the lookout for long-term help.

    We house volunteers in our cabin, which is very private and comfortable. It has minimal electricity, but does have a stovetop burner and hot water. There is a kitchen with a fridge nearby. We use our telephone service for internet...att works best in this location.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We will only take volunteers for a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks, and would prefer longer, due to the amount of orientation involved.
    Room and partial board is provided for about 3 hours daily, with days off, and when the season is busy, we also compensate for extra time, if it is requested.
    We only work with people who are interested in what we are doing and are not looking for clock-punchers.
    Any accommodations available for helpers will be relatively rustic, but comfortable.
