TENNESSEE 

HELP NEEDED in Morristown, Tennessee. I have an off the grid
cabin on a mountain that my Dad designed and built and I need a
caretaker for it. He passed away in January and my biggest
concern is preserving it and honoring what he loved. I do not
have the money or the extensive knowledge needed to do it myself,
so I figured the best way to honor my Dad’s legacy and also get
it cared for without that is to find someone to barter with –
who has the same passion he had. Mostly maintenance and repairs
are needed to the cabin, solar system, water tanks, rain catch
system, and composting toilet. It’s covered in trees, so the
ability to take care of those kinds of problems is definitely a
plus. There is a spot across the road suitable for an RV and
multiple campsites. There are no hookups but I am not opposed to
someone adding some off-grid solutions to that. There are 12
acres to explore and an amazing mountain and lake view in the
winter, and year round at the top campsite which has to be hiked
to. It's located about an hour from Knoxville and Gatlinburg.
Building a small off the grid/tiny home would also be OK. Someone
with the knowledge and ability to possibly help me build a house
on the ridge someday would definitely be ideal! Please contact

NORTH CAROLINA

LIVE-IN CARETAKER/HOUSEKEEPER NEEDED in Wake Forest. I own and
operate a small, upscale Inn set on a very nice, privately owned
property (over an acre in the heart of downtown Wake Forest). One
aspect of this position will be to clean guest suites when they
become available. Generally only longer-term stays for adults
only, and we clean after check out, or once monthly for longer
stays. Due to Covid, I am only operating two suites and both are
booked out for extended stays, through September so that's once a
month per suite. When things open back up at the end of the
summer I will also be bringing on a dedicated cleaning person to
assist. There is a long-term live in caretaker position for my
Aunt, a very sweet, easy going 80+ year old. Everyone likes her!
She is suffering from the onset of dementia with fairly regular
incontinence, mostly urination. So, you must be comfortable with
bathing and changing. Since arriving here she has started with
all the doctors and neurologists and we are hoping for
improvement as dialed in treatments are beginning. She has an
electric chair, a Jazzy 614 HD, which is quite capable of going
to downtown Wake Forest (a couple blocks) to visit and eat at
restaurants and browse stores. The Wake Forest senior center is
now open again and we are hoping she will enjoy spending time
there as well. She is a very sweet and social woman. Now that we
are through Covid, I am also bringing on additional help to
assist the primary caretaker with time off. Her place is single
story handicap accessible with a huge covered front porch, great
for sitting out in the warmer months. I also have my parents who
live across the street, in a 1940's bungalow we completely
renovated and customized for them. They're 80-year-olds, and
still independent and easy going. My father is soon to go in for
shoulder surgery where he will need significant help with daily
tasks, food prep and such, and driving an Audi convertible,
automatic. So, we will be bringing on additional help then as
well. He will still do the cooking most likely but that's his
thing. Once his shoulder is healed then the other shoulder is to
be done, so overall recovery is going to be quite some time. Both
places are totally handicap accessible with ramps and properly
equipped bathrooms. It’s good to bring my Aunt across the
street for visits with her brother and sister-in-law. She can
ride in her chair from door-to-door. The daily routine will be
preparing meals, ordering groceries for delivery, looking after
her, keeping her place clean, making sure she is clean and
getting her outside. A room cleaning here and there........she
also has a small dog, 6 lbs. A Yorkie poo. If you don't like dogs
please do not respond to this ad. I also have two dogs, very
friendly, one is a pup at about a year and half old...the other
old and mellow, you will come in contact with them from time to
time. A boxer and a bulldog and both friendly. This is a
long-term position (years and years). Must be a caring,
preferably some experience in caregiving, whether family or
professional, but not necessary, as well as efficient and
experienced at cleaning. Everything is hardwoods and tile.
Overall, if this is your thing this is a great job especially for
the homebody type, very non-corporate. Most of the time it’s a
laid back environment here, if you’re good at your job it would
be almost all the time laid back. It’s a very good opportunity
for the right people. If interested please email
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX and include your work related experience.
Compensation will be $475 weekly, plus all food and lodging. I
hope to hear from you and why you think this would be a good
position for you.

HAWAII 

ALOHA FROM THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII. Escape the cold, and
exchange your environment for the tropics. We have a 2¼ acre
estate in Kona, Hawaii in need of an individual who can care for
its landscape, gardens, and general maintenance. This commitment
is for a minimum of 90 days, but a longer-term position could be
possible, if all parties are content. This position is available
now. If hired, one can expect round trip airfare from your
nearest major airport to Kona, Hawaii. While on our property, we
will provide you with private hi-end accommodations with cable
and Wi-Fi, maid service once a week, gourmet breakfast and
dinner, and a negotiated stipend. Lastly, we will occasionally
give you free use of a vehicle to explore the island. We are in
one of the most beautiful parts of Hawaii, and I believe in the
world. We are seeking a self-motivated, organized, in shape and
strong, and very tidy and clean individual, who will work 36+
hours a week to upkeep our estate’s land, agriculture, and
gardens. We are willing to train in our procedures, but you must
have experience and be proficient in sanding and painting, and
pressure washing. We live in a jungle where it is absolutely
necessary to spray herbicides and insecticides. We do our best to
be as organic as possible. You must be proficient and competent
in using a commercial mower, weed eater, blower, hedge trimmer,
chain saw, pole chain saw, and silky pole saw. We use mostly
Stihl equipment, and have an Echo weed eater, and a commercial
mower by Honda. This equipment will be your responsibility to
maintain, and you should be able to do light repairs on them. You
will have to tend to all fertilizing and weed maintenance. You
must be competent in installing, maintaining, and repairing
irrigation. We use Toro products. We have over 60 different fruit
and spice trees, and edible berries and bushes, vegetable and
herb gardens, and a ¾ acre botanical garden with rare palms,
Heliconia, and Gingers. We are in the process of adding three
lotus and lily ponds, and in July we are hoping to open our pigmy
goat farm. It is fabulous, but it is hard work to maintain all of
them. If you love plants and the outdoors, this is your dream
job. The property has a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. It
is a spectacular place. If you feel this position might be your
calling, please send me your resume to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX and a
list of references (please include the terms “House of Kona,
caretakers” in the subject line of your email). I will review
them and give you a call to set up an interview time. I can do

for your interviews. All applicants will be subject to background
checks. No drug use or smoking, and responsible alcohol use! You
may contact me, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX for questions. Aloha and

Hello I’m Derrick Brown, an ambitious 31-year-old, with a wife
and 10-year-old daughter. I’ve been ranching full-time for 13
years. I’m a well-rounded and skilled individual. My family and
I are looking to head back west for the right opportunity, and
the right fit. I’m a skilled horsemen and an efficient roper. I
can rope cattle fast or standing still. The last place my family
and I worked was in North Dakota. We were there for eight years,
and I was a manager of day-to-day operations and a crew lead. We
left there for a new opportunity but unfortunately Covid-19
happened. I’m looking for a place where I can be a horsemen and
uphold the tradition of it and the outfit, and take pride in the
art of it. My wife would like to work on site. The last place we
worked she took care of the upkeep such as mowing, weed whipping,
gardening, etc. I believe my little family would be an asset to
your outfit. We’re looking for someplace that’s the right fit
and are good to their employees. I have my own string of horses
and also a horse for my daughter, and one working dog. I also
have a feed team of Percheron draft horses if that interests you.
I’m the type of guy that can work with others, or work on my
own. I can make decisions on my own and do it to your standards.
I treat it like its mine and I have high standards. A place with
horse training facilities would be a plus or as long as there’s
plenty of riding to do. I love roping and handling cattle. I
could go on and on so I’ll thank you for taking the time to
read my little ad here, and if I sound like your type of ranch
hand/property caretaker I look forward to speaking with you. I
can send my resume and references. My phone number is
