WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

Might you like to spend at least a year in Patagonia, Chile, very remote and beautiful? 

Help take care of our home and 100 acres, 17 alpacas, 1 dog and 2 cats and live in your own small, off-grid home on a lovely remote, forested lake with mountain views, and live rent and utility-free year round.  Must enjoy solitude and be able to live completely off the grid without TV or addictions of any kind, and be willing to confront very occasional trophy trout poachers within the Chilean law.  Spanish proficiency extremely helpful.

Must have the means to drive to buy most of your own food from Villa Cerro Castillo, 20 minutes away or Coyhaique, 2 hours distant, health care, transportation, and other necessities.  We live here from Oct thru April and in Chicago the rest of the year, but need someone to watch our 100 acres of land and yurt plus 95 acre lake, tend fences, trap mink, feed animals, etc. when we are not here. Small salary (enough to feed yourself) plus earned bonus will also be provided to care for 15 llamas and alpacas and greenhouse, yurt, barns, etc during winter (May-Sept).  To heat your home and provide cooking and hot water, you will need to gather and split fallen trees from the property and be able to drive and maintain small boats with outboards.  Bridge players (or those willing to learn to play bridge) are encouraged during summer!  Extensive vacations during summer, start date, some salary and duties are negotiable, and we are reasonable, pretty self-sufficient, sane and fun to be around.  We volunteer nearly full time for an educational non-profit utilizing BGAN satellite internet at $1350/month during the months we are home; we believe cell/internet service will be available at your cabin by 2022, although we can't be sure. There is cell service within about a 15 minute drive now.  We love it here and are looking for another independent, mature, friendly couple who will love it, too!   Perfect for mountain bikers, technical and casual climbers/hikers, fly-fisher-people and spinners/weavers.
