WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

Looking for a couple who would be interested in taking care of an eco-friendly property, living off-grid, 100% solar-powered, with organic tropical fruit trees, wild birds, geckos, free ranging chickens, and a peaceful co-existence with nature. 

There are two studio cottages that are used for short term rentals on AirBnB, Booking.com, VRBO, etc.  These need to be regularly cleaned and well maintained.  The gardens need to be tended by hand daily: weeding, pruning, mulching, composting; the grass needs to be mowed and weed-whacked once or twice per week.  The chickens need daily dare, feeding, watering, and free ranging.  There are ongoing maintenance projects as needed.  Caretakers would also be responsible for the online bookings, spreadsheets, responding to guests by email, and being available to check guests in, and assist with recommendations for places to visit, restaurants, local activities, beaches, etc.  Propane tanks need to be refilled regularly, and trash and recycling need to be removed to the local collection facility between guests.  Laundry is done by machine, and hangs out on the line in the sunshine to dry.  Breakfasts are supplied daily for one of the cottages, and other meals could be supplied as an extra option.  Fresh fruit, flowers, and free range eggs are placed in the cottages for guests to enjoy.  Caretakers would live in a brand new yurt with wood floors and a full kitchen, one wide open space, a step up from glamping, with a separate bathhouse just a few feet away.  A four-wheel drive car or pick up truck would be recommended, as the property lies half a mile down a bumpy dirt road.  Landscaping abilities are required and understanding of tropical plants, trees, flowers, and fruits would be ideal.  Carpentry, plumbing, and other mechanical skills would definitely be a plus.  A love of nature is absolutely necessary, as insects and wildlife are a part of life in Hawaii.
