General description

  • Holiday home
Casa del Sol is located 13 km North up beach road from the small fishing village of Xcalak, Mexico. The house is located on the Carribean. It is a vacation rental home with 3 separate units plus a separate unit for housesitter(s)/caretaker(s). It is in a very remote location and off the grid. Solar power is the sole form of electricity. Snorkeling out front is some of the best around plus diving and fly fishing in this area is amazing.

Needs and Animals

  • My property
  • A dog
We are looking for honest dependable Housesitter(s)/Caretaker(s) to manage and daily maintain the gardens, yard, beach and house with the help of locals a few days a week. A deposit is required. The house is a three unit rental. A separate unit will be used for Housesitter(S)/Caretaker's accommodations. In addition, House Sitter(s)/Caretaker(s) will be responsible for feeding our lab mixed female dog (Emma) twice daily, checking guests in, assisting in their needs during their stay, seeing them off during departure, laundry, assuring cleaning to white glove standards is done, and preparing units for next guests after departure. Due to the amount of responsibilities, couples are ideal however all will be considered. Again, much of the responsibilities for room cleaning and outside grounds keeping are aided with local hired help. People skills are a must as well as knowledge of living off the grid. Solar, generator, and conservation. Repairs and general house maintenance ability are also required. Be prepared to meet a variety of guests from all over the world, enjoy the sun, and enjoy the refreshing Caribbean water while snorkeling just out front of the house.
