  • Description


    We are an Ecuadorian German couple, who are looking for friendly people to help us to care for our home and garden.
    We travel a bit and need help to look after our Home and plants: Watering, weeding, trimming and planting in the gardens.

    Friendship, respect and the environment are important values ​​for us. 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. We 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 us.
    Besides a fantastic ocean view and peace,we offer you free internet, own kitchen, a clean bed and private bathroom.
