WE ARE SEEKING A RELIABLE, NON-SMOKING, NON-DRINKING, NON-DRUG
USING couple for our three acre horse property in
Pinetop-Lakeside, Arizona. Our property borders the
Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, yet we are minutes away from a
small delightful mountain town with shops, grocery stores,
restaurants, hospital, schools, golf courses, movie theaters and
more. A ski resort is less than an hour’s drive away. It is a
beautiful four season climate with tremendous outdoor
recreational opportunities - hiking, swimming, fishing, hunting
and more. There is a separate two-story house for the caretaker
family, consisting of a second-story 1,300 square foot apartment
with treetop views of the forest, a large master bedroom and
walk-in closet, full bath, a small second bedroom or office, and
a great room with kitchen and dining areas and a wood stove.
Downstairs has a laundry room, a new full bathroom and plenty of
space for a workshop, man cave and storage. We live in a separate
house on the property for about five to six months in the summer
with two gentle horses and two sweet dogs. Our house is
winterized when we leave so there is not much to do for us once
we and our animals leave in the fall. When we are there, the work
averages 15-20 hours weekly and consists of horse care, property
and equipment upkeep, weekly house cleaning and minor household
handyman-type repairs as needed. You need to have horse care
experience and love animals! You should be able to maintain an
ATV, manure spreader and handle routine maintenance and repairs.
No salary is provided but we provide free housing and pay for
power, water and garbage pickup year round. In the winter when we
are not there, the caretakers are responsible for propane used
for supplemental heat. Our current caretakers heat almost
entirely with their wood stove, so propane costs are minimal.
They have been with us for about seven years but are leaving in
the spring. We want someone who will think of this as their home
and be here long term, although we only ask for a one year
commitment for the first year, beginning sometime in May of 2023.
Our neighbors are great and most are full-time residents. We have
a neighborhood potluck every summer and several are horse owners,
always willing to help. This is a perfect job for retired folks
or those that work from home. We are flexible when it comes to
time off for family visits, vacations, etc. We will provide
contact information for our current and former caretakers so you
can check us out! Please submit a resume to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
We look forward to hearing from you!

long-term residents. We have worked hard to create an affordable
housing solution for Kingsland that offers folks a nice safe
place to call home. We are seeking caretaker(s) who can provide
handy-person services, lawn/landscaping services and oversee
contractors (plumbers, air-conditioner repairmen, etc.). The base

tasks. We are offering significantly discounted rent of

area are known for great boating, fishing, and hiking. Twin
Rivers is just down the street from banks, a pharmacy, HEB, a

yet nearby towns like Marble Falls provide plentiful shopping and
health care options. We are looking for a contentious customer
oriented individual or couple who share our values and work
ethic. References and background check required. We are proud of
Twin Rivers and the reputation we have built and the right
caretaker will be able to take pride in their contributions as

year which may be taken in part or in whole, but may not be taken
during the Summer/Fall unless pre-agreed with the owners. If the
caretakers are to be away for one or more nights, back-up
caretakers (who live in the area and are former Camp caretakers)
will need to be scheduled in advance so the Camp is always
occupied due to insurance requirements. For these compensations,
the caretakers will be responsible for maintaining/cleaning the
house, barn and buildings; tending the lawn; planting/maintaining
the one acre garden (including canning and winter food storage);
cutting, processing and loading into the basement and garage the
furnace and cook stove wood (approximately seven cords per year);
mowing and liming the fields; regularly servicing all vehicles
and boats (Camp pickup truck for plowing, Massey tractor, Ford
loader/backhoe, powered canoes with outboard motors, pontoon boat
and several paddle canoes, riding mower); and maintaining the
driveway (periodic gravel additions, grading and winter plowing).
Fulfilling some of these responsibilities may require the hiring
of a local helper, which the owners may support after
consultation on a case-by-case basis. In some years, capital
improvement projects (roofing, painting, etc.) are performed by
outside contractors whom the caretakers will manage to ensure
safe, efficient and quality completion. In prior years, the Camp
has supported livestock including chickens, three dairy cows, a
draft horse, and pigs. There are currently no livestock, but we
may begin to reintroduce chickens and other small livestock at
some point in the future. The owners predominately use the Camp
during June - October, but the house is maintained for occupancy
on short notice year-round. Responsibilities for owner occupancy
include prepping the bed and bathrooms as well as
planning/shopping/preparing/serving/cleaning up of three meals a
day plus desserts while the owners and guests are in residence.
There are seven bedrooms in the owner’s quarters and there may
be up to 12 people (family and guests) at any one time, however
typically there are approximately four to seven people in
residence. The house is cleaned/dusted weekly, but owners/guests
make their own beds daily and manage their own laundry. The house
is located midway between a town with a grocery store, hardware
store, restaurant, and gas stations approximately nine miles away
and a village with a small general store/lunch counter and fuel
approximately eight miles away. The nearest medical facility is
29 miles away where there is also a Walmart, Shop and Save
grocery store, Tractor Supply, and other stores/services. The
area is famous for fishing and hunting plus other outdoor
activities including snowmobiling and ice fishing. During the
winter, the prior caretakers have engaged in their own hobbies to
generate additional income including trapping and making maple
syrup. The owners are open to discussing activities of this
nature with the new caretakers as long as the core
responsibilities of the positions are continuously well
fulfilled. The ideal candidates will be adults who enjoy living
in a beautiful rural world, who are in good health, who have
experience with the safe use and maintenance of farm machinery
and tools (including tractors with implements, loader/backhoe,
snowplows, chain saws and log splitters), carpentry, minor
plumbing and electrical, gardening, cooking, cleaning, and animal
care. If the candidate couple have a dog, that animal may be
welcome if the dog is well mannered, quiet, and friendly.
Throughout most of the family ownership of this property,
Labrador retrievers have lived at the Camp. If the successful
candidates do not have a dog, the owners may, with the
caretaker’s concurrence, procure a Lab puppy to be trained and
kept at the Camp by the caretakers. No other pets are allowed.
Those with military service history who are retired or honorably
discharged are especially encouraged to apply. We regret that we
cannot entertain candidates who smoke (due to fire hazards) or
who have school-age or younger children (due to liability
issues). Any criminal history, DUI, use or history of use of
controlled substances would be a disqualification.
Moderate/limited use of alcohol is acceptable. Members of the
caretaker’s family may visit for short periods with the prior
approval of the owners, but these visits will be limited to
periods when the owners and guests are not in residence and may
not exceed three days. More details for all of the above matters
are included in a Caretakers Manual that will be provided for
review by finalist candidates. Please email your resume to

would also enjoy some of our landscaping work out in our
beautiful garden area. Must be a non-smoker/drinker, with no

AUSTRALIA

WE WOULD APPRECIATE A LITTLE HELP around our 30-acre
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX located one hour north of Cairns (near
Mareeba) on the beautiful Atherton Tablelands. Our property
borders the Barron River at the rear and has a focus on
sustainable agriculture. We have a big vision and are slowly
converting this traditional Barramundi Farm into the most
sustainable regenerative agriculture, permaculture and aquaponics
farm possible to make this farm very food productive. We have
already added 256 solar panels for energy efficiency and are now
focused on food security. I have been working in the
environmental management and community development field for 20+
years and now pouring my knowledge and experience into developing
our new farm. Experience is not essential; we prefer a desire and
willingness to learn. There is plenty of room for your
inspiration and creativity here too. We are family friendly
(three kids, two adults). In our spare time we like aquaculture,
aquaponics, permaculture, organic gardening, sustainability,
biodynamic, self-sufficiency, eco-tourism, community development,
hiking, nature, wildlife, tropical rainforest, energy efficiency,
cultural heritage and house renovations. We are an active family
that loves the bush and playing in nature. The family come and go
while I (Rod) manage the farm. We welcome short or longer stay
helpers. We provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about
aquaculture, aquaponics, wicking beds and organic gardening,
permaculture, a large variety of different food plants, as well
as local food networks, and what it takes to run a successful
small business. You will be learning and participating with
myself (Rod and/or Evelyn) and/or other volunteer helpers. We
have lots to do and are happy to meet and host people throughout
the year and offer community development and food production
skills. I plan to do all the following work this year: planting
fruit trees, build wicking bed gardens, build greenhouses and
Aquaponics gardens, composting and establish permaculture
gardens, make coconut oil, ginger beer, a black soldier fly
larvae box, weeding, pruning, painting, water tank installation,
make a moveable chicken tractor house, make a pizza oven, etc.
Aquaculture work includes fish harvest (every week), fixing a dam
jetty, cleaning paddle wheels, setting up a fish nursery, fish
tanks for breeding, general cleaning, building repairs,
concreting posts, fencing, feeding our 50,000 fish daily, mowing
lawns, tractor work, whipper snipping, etc. We usually work
7:30am – 12:30pm each day (so it’s not as hot),
Saturday/Sunday are days off (just 30 minutes feeding the fish in
morning and the days yours). We’re flexible and also happy for
you to work full days and have full days off if that works better
for you. All the rest of the time is yours to explore. If
you’re fun loving and appreciate a fair work exchange for
accommodation, knowledge sharing, meals, laundry, Wi-Fi, and
hanging out with an Aussie family at the fireplace or BBQ, please
consider us as your hosts. We can also show you around the
natural sights (spotlighting night animals, waterfalls,
aboriginal art, etc.) to celebrate getting jobs done. We love
exploring the natural rainforest surrounding Cairns, Daintree and
Tablelands. Also have a metal detector and love swinging that
around. Maybe we could find some treasure if keen? We'll provide
breakfast, lunch and dinner (when you’re home). If you would
like to cook, we’re always interested to taste someone else’s
cultural food creations. We would appreciate it if you do the
dishes as a “thank you for the cooking sometimes”. We’ll do
the dishes if you cook dinner. We eat home cooked meals every day
using our own organic vegetables and fish. Usually cook on the
fire or BBQ and have a great time-sharing story with our guests.
Hope you like fish! At the moment we are suited to the more
adventurous type of person. Let’s call the accommodation
rustic! It’s not 5 stars but we’re doing our best with what
we have. If you have your own van that’s really easy as we have
a separate outdoor toilet/shower block by the river and you could
park near it. If not, we have beds with mosquito nets over them
in a livable shed with an inside bathroom and kitchen. It’s not
flashy yet we provide a 5-star effort. If you prefer, we can set
you up outside in a tent also. You won’t be disappointed with
our willingness to help you. We also have Satellite internet. We
have mobile phone coverage around the farm from many spots.
Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX I can pick you up from the
Cairns airport if pre-arranged. Will always try and assist.

WEST VIRGINIA

IMMEDIATE LIVE-IN PROPERTY CARETAKER NEEDED in Martinsburg, West
Virginia. I am looking for a live-in property caretaker(s) for my
Airbnb (couples/partners preferred). There will be a minimum of a
three night stay for a family. There should only be a maximum of
two times a week cleaning. Most Airbnb’s have up to a 60%
occupancy per year, which would allow for a lot of room to have
the house to yourself. I am looking for a caretaker who is
detailed oriented and well organized, very clean (I'm talking
almost a Felix Ungar), social media and customer service
(hospitality based), has basic maintenance and housekeeping
skills, basic landscaping/gardening skills, a non-partier,
non-smoker, and no drugs. This person(s) will have the following
responsibilities: check in and out guests with a friendly and
welcoming demeanor, make sure grounds are maintained, make sure
home is clean and ready for the next guest(s), do laundry of
linens, take comforters to cleaners, perform basic maintenance of
the home as needed, handle any problems that arise as needed, and
set out welcome baskets for guests. You will live in the basement
level of the house, which has a separate entrance, and utilities
are included. The upstairs kitchen is available to you when the
rest of the house is not occupied with guests. There is a doggie
door for an allergy friendly pet with his/her own dog run (i.e.
poodle or similar). The door will accommodate a small 10ish lb.
dog. The dog must not go into any carpeted areas of the upper
part of the home (top floor). The basement is unfurnished with a
private bath. Think of a large master bedroom style with a large
walk-in closet and storage areas. There may be an area where you
can set up your own seating area and kitchenette area as the room
is quite large. Since this is not a full-time position, a working
or retired individual(s) will benefit from this type of setup.
This compensation is equivalent to 23 hours a week of work at
$15.00 an hour. This will allow flexibility to have comp time
when the house is not rented vs. fully rented. For more
information please call XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

VIRGINIA

LOOKING FOR A NEW CARETAKER/INNKEEPER to start April 1st at our
unique property in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We designed and
built this 6,500 sq. ft. home to retire in and pass on to our
kids almost 20 years ago. We did not expect to leave, but had an
amazing opportunity and decided to leave our home. We now live
outside the US. We started in 2019 with the concept of doing a
proper BnB, but COVID cut that off, and we pivoted to a VRBO type
rental.  The property is unique and has huge potential. Without
any real marketing we were able to fully rent the property by the
week through the summer high season. Currently we are profitable
at just 33% occupancy!  We are looking for someone to come and
live at the property, maintain it and help market and build the
brand as a high end retreat center and family gathering space
starting April 1st, 2022. You can learn more and see photos at

love to talk to you. Please contact us at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
