    The first thing you need to know before you apply, is that we live in a small town Close to Antigua Guatemala, maybe 30 minutes away in car, chicken bus perhaps more.
    Second gas for cooking is provided by us but if your plans are to make money out of cooking, then you need to fill up the gas tank.

    We are a 41 and 42 year old couple. Our 4 bedroom project just finished, so some small duties are requested as:
    - If guests shown, you need to show the place and show them everything about the place in English or Spanish.
    - the wall of the house in the front mut be painted.

    - gardening
    - water plants every night
    - clean common areas.
    - Cleaning after dog, feed, walk and shower him.

    - Help if any task shows. Nothing hard, just help.

We don't have any hide camera, you can see all of them, some times, we like to play around and talk with the pets trough cameras, it has nothing to do with you and your tasks, only for security, so if you feel uncomfortable with this, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY for the position, since we WILL NOT REMOVE THE CAMERAS by any means.
