WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

This is a perfect position for a single or couple looking to bring some of their hotel experience to a quality beachfront eco-lodge on a traditional English speaking remote Caribbean island with incredible fishing and diving. We have 15 cabins, a garden and farm on 30 beachfront acres 45 miles off of Nicaragua's Caribbean coast. MSNBC called Little Corn Island one of the 18 best-kept island secrets in the world.

The candidate(s) would act as support for our manager in daily operations of the hotel and fill in his absence. Being able to work in an isolated location (we have no motorized vehicles, phone, TV, etc), is a must. This position requires managing logistics, supervising and motivating a large staff, inventory, supervising the house keeping, grounds, maintenance and restaurant staff, attending to guests in the hotel, restaurant and bar, bookkeeping and lots of maintenance. In a small hotel one has to do a little of everything. This is a "hands-on" management position ideal for active, hard working and reliable individuals with a panache for organization and customer service and a love of nature and adventure.
