    Do you dislike walking on the Beach, feeling the warm sea breeze on your face ? Do you feel uncomfortable with sand between your toes ? Do you not like eating fresh fruit straight from the trees, vegetables straight from the ground, fish fresh from the sea ? Do you just get bored waking up to 20 C every morning knowing that it is going to be another + 25 C day ? Do you get fed up watching the Whales splashing in the sea, Pelicans and Blue Footed Boobies diving for their lunch and Frigate Birds drifting on the wind ? Are you annoyed by those Kite Surfer Dudes turning tricks on the waves ? THEN THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU !!!!

    We are a Canadian couple who are in the process of renting our guest houses on the beach. We are in need of friendly people to help us manage and improve our home. We (Anna &Steve) live full time on the property. We supply coffee and an occasional meal or treat.
