  • Description


    I am from Switzerland, but I was in the Swiss merchant navy for 20 years traveling all over the world. I met and married my Ecuadorian wife 30 years ago. We moved back to Switzerland, and I finished out my working career at the Swiss airport for 23 years. We bought property in Ecuador from my wife's family and I have now built our retirement home, along with a bed & breakfast and gardens. My wife is still working in Switzerland and will join me full-time when she finishes her retirement. I speak English, Spanish and German and enjoy meeting and knowing people from all over the world.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You will enjoy many opportunites for cultural exchange. I am from Switzerland and enjoy sharing stories about my travels. You will also meet people from other countries who stay in my bed & breakfast. There are a good number of ex-pats from N. America and beyond in Puerto Cayo. And of course, you will have many opportunities to interact with the local Ecuadorian culture.

  • Aide


    I am asking for 4 hours a day per person, 5 days a week. In exchange you will receive lodging and breakfast. There are various things that I can use help with:
    - Watering, weeding, trimming and planting in the gardens;
    - Painting, repairing, and maintaining buildings;
    - Cleaning rooms & changing linens;

    I also have two dogs, and sometimes need help caring for them. And people with computer skills can sometimes be helpful as well.

    You will have one of the private rooms and bathroom. You will also have access to my large, commercial kitchen for preparing meals. You need to buy your own groceries to prepare your own meals. Internet is available throughout the property. It is very close to walk into town and you are very near access to the quiet and beautiful beach.
