WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

This is an unusual and flexible opportunity, not an estate situation or estate duties. We are an older, retired couple, living on a large, beautiful, informal country property consisting of gardens, woods, rocks & trails.   We have a spacious one bedroom private cottage, and wish to share our unique property with two people who are experienced and comfortable with nature & wildlife in a quiet country setting.  

The position could be part time for a short time & evolve to full time. Salary commensurate with our needs and your skills and experience. Applicants must be experienced, older adults. They must be open to a long-term job situation,  possibly 4-5+ years. We can't consider people who both have full time jobs.

There is enough property to make additional income growing and selling plants, vegetables, beekeeping, or various other activities, in a somewhat organic environment. We love animals but prefer people with no pets because we encourage and protect our native wildlife. 

Summary - living and sharing the enjoyment and maintenance of this property, and having a mutually beneficial relationship,  would be an accurate description of the situation we offer. Flexible move in date.

We are still active and can handle/assist in most of the activities below. 

You will be:

  • Scheduling and overseeing maintenance

You will be helping with:

  • Weekly shopping 
  • Cooking simple healthy meals
  • Occasional driving
  • Basic gardening needs
  • Hiking / companionship

Flexible:

  • Handyman skills
  • Help with cleaning

If responding to this ad, please address the above and include age and desired move-in date.

  • Must be a non-smoker and speak English
  • Must have references for both current and previous employers.
  • Must be able to meet in person. 
  • Must be prepared and willing to have a thorough background and credit check.
