Welcoming help maintaining small house and land in Sabana Grande, Puerto Rico



 Estancia mínima:  Al menos 2 semanas



  • Descripción


    I live on my aunt and uncle’s property in Sabana Grande, Puerto Rico with my 14-year-old son.

    We take care of a dog we rescued from the streets named Mango, who’s possibly a German Shepard and Husky mix. He is very well behaved and friendly, and spends almost all of the time outside.

    There are two houses on one acre of land. My aunt and uncle live in one house, and my son and I live in the other. We have a few chickens, one sheep, and one goat living on the land.

    I'm looking for someone who is interested in staying for at least 2 weeks in the spare room of the house my son and I live in. The stay could be longer if we find the right person. I can host one person.

    I work cleaning palm trees, and helping people with their land projects. I work nearly every day, plus I maintain the land, two houses, and care for the animals. On the weekends, I often travel to the west end of the island to take my son surfing. We have and apartment in Rincòn. Help with cleaning and cooking for the living areas is much needed.

    Because I’m occupied with multiple projects at once, I could highly benefit from a helping hand. Certain areas that I needed assistance with are:

    - Keeping the house tidy
    - Cooking meals (I will provide ingredients)
    - Occasional building, fixing, or painting things
    - Garden, nursery, planting
    - Feeding the animals

    You will have plenty of alone time while I am at work and my son is at school, as well as time to dedicate towards any leisure activities or hobbies you may have. We will commune together at the end of the day.

    If you are interested in this living arrangement, please schedule a phone call with me so we can discuss in more detail.

    There's a world of hidden knowledge about agriculture and caring for livestock. Coconuts in particular have a ton of benefits and uses unbeknownst to many people, and are particularly dear to me.

    Spending time at the ocean and surfing is a big part of our lives.

    My aunt and uncle are retired army personnel with incredible stories to share.

    Overall, you’ll get a chance to be part of peaceful areas of Puerto Rico.

    Puerto Rico is an island rich in natural beauty, arts and culture, and things to do, see, and discover. There are countless reasons to love this land and its people!

    We personally love to spend our free time soaking up the sun on the beaches, cooling off in the rivers, foraging for fruit in the forests, and hanging out with our friends and family. You’ll certainly find something here that piques your interest and makes it easy to live in the moment and fully enjoy it!

    In terms of transportation, you would be welcome to tag along with me in my work truck on some adventures or spend the night at the beach with me and my son, although I do not have a vehicle that you can borrow.
