  • Description



    Hi there I am am an Englishwoman in need of some skilled support and help. On the property. I have a keen eye for what I’d like to do but cannot do it alone. I’ve created a very private enclave nestled in the middle of town. a garden idyll There is room for together, apart living within the space.I am looking for help as soon as possible with a view to getting the roof up before the rains in June. Depending on suitability, it would be possible to dog/house sit from end of June to end of Sept.

    What I’m really looking for is someone who has the requisite skills for the projects listed and then also would like to stay a while to share the space up to a year or more if suited. I leave each year for 3 months so it would be good to have some one the dogs know to be with them. This would be a great place for someone who wants to still awhile yet be away from where they are from. A beautiful hide out in a lovely tropical Pueblo .
