Job Offered: Caretaker

25 November 2015 Jobs in Yucatan 4

For January and February, 2016, I'm looking for a person, couple or family to "sit" my five story home in a small Mayan village near Valladolid. You can see the house, descriptions and guest evaluations here on Airbnb. I've been a host for 3 years, have "super host" status (very good evaluations), and I expect up to a dozen bookings for the first two months of next year, during the "high season." These are guests from all over the world and are VERY interesting..

I want you to treat the home as yours. Almost ALL farm chores will be done by my neighbors. Neighbors are "family" as I've lived there almost continually for 12 years. I plan to use telephone as a resource as much as needed because I have a plan in California that allows Mexican calls to be local!

What I expect in exchange for free "rent" is for you to welcome the guests, attending to them (give key, directions and tourist pointers, continental breakfast if they want it) One or possibly two insured vehicles will be available for you for errands.

Please call my local cell number 985 852 5347, respond with a text, or get to me through WhatsApp.

    Dear Mr.Brookstone,

    I am interested in working as host and caretaker when ever you are in need of responsible and committed help. I spent close to a year living in Guyana, South America, where I lived and worked
    at a wildlife station. (So I am already familiar with much of the local fauna in your area). You may
    see my LinkedIn profile at for more detailed information on that experience. I also have worked as a seasonal education tour guide for Green Meadows petting farm in Los Angeles, California years 90 - 91. So I have experience in working with and entertaining a diverse clientele.
