Caretaker Couple - Costa Rica

Caretaker Couple - Costa Rica

Posted: 8/3/2017 - 12:35 pm

Villa Hermosa and Tucan are the two guest houses associated with the house we’d like a couple to watch over.  Each has a complete bathroom.


The House: they would have a two-bedroom home, with study, living room and dining room with kitchen area, laundry area.  One bedroom is near a front porch with a view of rolling pasture and cows and the other bedroom is near the back yard with banana “trees” (they are actually a form of bush) that attract Costa Rica’s amazingly diverse bird population. There is one complete bathroom and one half.


The house and guest houses are on an acre of land and there is a large game room with pool table and darts and other amenities (including a complete bathroom) and there is a gorgeous large new swimming pool with electric waterfall and lovely pebbled walkways throughout the property, lined with exotic plants and flowers. We also have a frog pond, and some of the butterflies and other insects are pretty unusual.  We can send photos of everything.


We are on the country road (bumpy needs four wheel drive) between The Springs Resort, (world famous hot-springs resort) and Leaves and Lizards (world famous horse therapy resort).


We need a trustworthy couple to live here a minimum of two months at a time.  We will manage the business end of things, in terms of bookings and help with tours in the area, etc. but the couple would need to be ready to greet our guests as they come and make sure to tell us that the landscape maintainer and the maid have kept up with the guest needs.  


Basically because there is no food to serve, the “job” of the couple entails giving guests the keys and getting back the keys as keys are expensive and include an electronic gate opener for the driveway into the property.


We would prefer an even swap:  They meet and greet and we provide free rent and a natural bird sanctuary.  



IDEAL place for a COUPLE, either Retired, bird-watching lovers, or young entrepreneurs who might even want to buy it from us, as I am of an age to consider selling for a good rate.


Anything else I can do to help….Everything is in good working order, pretty and well-maintained and we would just want people who would keep it like that and enjoy the place.


We are between Monterrey and La Fortuna, near the famous Arenal Volcano.
