General description

  • Main home
Peaceful off grid property with an amazing view located 5 km / 3 miles off the main road up a steep dirt road. 3 big dogs, 2 outdoor cats and some chickens. Must have a good 4x4 vehicle. Lots of fruit trees, a garden and a green house. Comfortable wooden house, good internet.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • 3 dogs
  • 2 cats
  • Farm animals
We need the house-sitter to stay on the property everyday. We have workers there during week days so the house-sitter can go down the mountain while to workers are there. Our dogs (a golden retriever, a german shepherd and a doberman) eat a mix of kibble and homemade food that we cook every two days in an insta pot. The chicken coop needs to be closed at night. The cats are outdoor cats and just need to be fed twice a day. The floors need to be cleaned on a daily basis because the dogs bring a lot of dirt and they shed.

We love how peaceful it is up here in the middle of the jungle. We are completely off-grid but we have everything needed. Of course one needs to be conscious of the power and water usage. We grow a lot of food on our land. The property is really big, it's nice to take a walk. We have a swimming pool. Internet is fast enough for streaming.
