quiet, private Christmas vacation place just for you or with one
special other. No parties here! We are looking only for a mature,

this ramshackle but sweet old farm, and living in this old
trailer. You are welcome to do the same. We have a big livestock
protection dog (who is very friendly with people but not friendly
with other dogs or coyotes). She needs to stay here (to do her
job protecting the other animals). From you she'll need some
companionship and love - and a walk (or run if you like) at least

and need you to do the same. It is not at all fancy but it will
be warm and dry and pleasant for someone to stay in, even if the
snow flies. It has two bedrooms. It's a nice, quiet, country

minutes from beautiful downtown Athens, Ohio. Need a little space
to study, relax, meditate and go for a daily walk in the big
wildy woods and ridges with a nice big dog? We are also open to
other kinds of trades or perks for you. We look forward to
hearing from you. Please email your resume and references to

FREE RENT available in Encino for a dog professional couple only.
This unique living situation isn't for everyone so please read
carefully before responding: We are a non-profit small dog rescue
in search of a responsible and stable live-in couple, with at
least one person who has extensive experience as either a
vet-tech, dog trainer, or very experienced dog rescuer. A groomer
may also be considered. This arrangement would be an exchange of
a one bedroom house with additional office space for our rescue
plus a shared kitchen, for your time and care for our dogs. Most
of our dogs are under 20lbs and we are not focused on one
specific breed. Although you must love dogs, you may not have
your own pet as you will be required to care for approximately 10
dogs on the property. Responsibilities will include: General
caretaking of the property, including cleaning after the dogs and
keeping the property tidy and presentable, letting the dogs out
of their crates each morning and returning them each night,
ensuring that they are getting along, and separating those who
are not sociable and working with them to integrate with other
dogs and humans, medicating dogs when needed, and monitoring for
issues that may arise such as kennel cough, limping, hair loss,
pain, etc., and reporting it to our staff, and feeding,
exercising, and ensuring noise level is kept to a minimum. You
must be comfortable with other employees and volunteers to be on
the property during the daytime hours, and be comfortable with
many dogs in and out of your living quarters. Showing dogs to
potential adopters and fosters by appointment if needed. We are
not looking for someone who simply needs free rent. We are
looking for someone who is passionate about dogs and rescuing who
doesn't mind being surrounded by dogs all day long. Ideally, one
of you would be a vet-tech, trainer, or similar dog-professional
while the other may have a part time day-job. As long as someone
is always on the property each morning and each night to ensure
they are always monitored. This means that if you go out at night
to dinner and a movie, you must hire a dog-sitter for the hours
that you are gone, or make arrangements with our many volunteers
to do it for free, as long as you never leave the property
unattended when our staff is not there. The property is clean,
safe, and basic. It has approximately 700 sq. ft. of tile floors,
laundry, stove, refrigerator, and plenty of outdoor space not all
of which will be used for the dogs. There is air-conditioning in
every room although the house seems to keep really cool on the
inside. There is plenty of daylight as well. If you do not have
your own furniture we can probably provide you with whatever you
need through our generous volunteers and donors. Absolutely no
smoking or marijuana use. A refundable security deposit of $350
is required and you are responsible for the Internet/phone/TV
costs which is approximately $100/month. If you feel that you are
the right couple who live and breathe dog rescue and wish to
devote your lives to them, please send us your qualifications and
why you feel that you are the right tenant/caretakers to

CARETAKER WANTED for a mountain ranch in Pollock Pines. A two
bedroom mobile home is available in exchange for help around the
ranch and the house. When responding please describe what
abilities you have and your work experience. I am leaning toward
retired people or somebody who would be around a lot. There is
room for horses and over two acres is already fenced for the
caretaker. There is also a very rustic cabin and plenty of
trailer space available. Looking for somebody with experience
with horses or people with carpentry/handyman skills. Must be a
self-starter and a plus if you have a lot of your own tools.
There are two trout streams on the property, and plenty of places
to garden. There is an apple orchard over one hundred sixty years
old still bearing sixteen different varieties of apples. There
are also raspberries, gooseberries and loganberries to be
harvested. I need help restoring the house that has half fallen
down - it was built in 1869. The ranch is semi-remote, located
five miles to the closest neighbor but only fifteen minutes on
good roads to Pollock Pines with major shopping stores and
schools. There is excellent cell phone reception. The ranch is in
generator country which means you need to provide your own
generator as there is no electricity. It works, as I have lived
here over twenty five years. The trailer appliances run on
propane. We get quite a bit of snow in the winter so a
4-wheel-drive is advisable. There are possible job opportunities
with the right people but nothing going at the present moment. I
need motivated people who want to help get the business going
again and expand to build tiny houses on trailers. I have enough
lumber cut and dried to build 10 tiny houses. I have a sawmill,
kiln and woodworking tools. I would like to find somebody
interested in helping expand my lumber, cabinets and furniture
sales. Also interested in turning the ranch into an equestrian
campground and give guided horseback riding on the property and
the adjacent thousands of acres of US forest land. I do have
other caretakers here, so everything is not dependent upon just
one caretaker. No drug or alcohol abusers please. If we do agree
on the caretaker position there will be a $35 background check
fee. Please reply with your phone number to
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

MEXICO

UNUSUAL OPPORTUNITY available in the Yucatan Peninsula for an
early-retired, moderate-pension person who loves warm weather all
year, loves keeping up the grounds, and can maintain a home. An
easy-going, friendly person is much more important than Spanish
language skills. This position doesn't quite fit anywhere because
it could be just housesitting, it could be renting part or whole,
or it could be a money-making type of deal with you living in the
caretaker's quarters. It sounds kind of flaky at first glance,
but it's legit. I moved to Spokane, Washington in 1977 from Iowa
and have lived in the same house since 1978. I'm a retired
industrial engineer. I'm advertising this job/opportunity/rental
from Spokane because I would like some common connection with
whoever might be interested in taking me up on this. Hopefully,
if we both have some connections in Spokane that would engender
trust, and I could personally interview you to see how we get
along. The main requirements are to live there full-time which
provides security, maintain the extensive grounds, repair and
maintain the three bedroom home as required, and manage any
rental operation you want to set up. I would prefer a minimum
two-year commitment and the strength and skills to maintain the
yard and the house. If you like the idea of answering rental
inquiries and hosting visitors that would be a plus for both of
us as I would more likely hang on to the property instead of
trying to sell it. If you were living in the caretaker's portion,
you could probably stay on even if it did sell because the buyers
would need the same service. And I could throw in a
1%-of-selling-price severance if you had to move out with a
couple of months notice as real estate transactions are quite
slow down there. Compensation will be one of these three
scenarios: 1) best for you; I pay you $100/month for the
caretaker's quarters and you pay the very low utilities, 2) (my
preference; what I think it's worth) you pay $150/month for the
caretaker's quarters plus utilities, or 3) you pay $500/month
plus utilities for the whole building, rent it out yourself, or
invite your friends. Without looking it up, I think utilities are
about $50/month. By the way, my hearing is poor so please email
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX initially for house photos and more
information.

preferably with social security, employment or other fixed income
and a heart for fatherless boys, single Moms and youth at risk.
For over 24 years we have managed the ministry from a 240 acre

your ideas and why. The light amount of work here would also
allow you to have another job or find one in town which is only
20 minutes away. Or you can work on the ranch full-time - it's up
to you. There are nine cabins and 1,000 acres. Three cabins need
to be rented out ASAP for the hunting season, and then we start

WOULD YOU LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE AVAILABLE/INTERESTED IN A
HOUSESIT for us, from the 3rd of September until the 18th of
September in Cooloongup? My name is Hazel, I live in Cooloongup
(a suburb of Perth, near Rockingham) with my husband Carl, three
cats, and one tank of tropical fish! Our house is modern (gas
fire, dishwasher and coffee machine!) clean and tidy. I'm on
holiday at the moment and am tidying up the back yard! There is
an outdoor undercover table set and loungers. Our cats would need
three meals (warmed raw meat) per day, daily water change and fur
ball remover medicine twice a week. This medicine is put on a
spoon and the cats take it without hesitation. They have a litter
tray but it is rarely used, as they mostly use the back yard.
They have no health issues. The fish would need to be fed once a
day but they would need no other maintenance. No other duties
would be requested, apart from bringing in the mail twice a week
and watering three indoor plants once a week. Our cats are unused
to/frightened by young children or lots of activity and as such
we would be unable to accept a housesitter who would need to
regularly bring lots of visitors or young children to the house.
Visitors are OK in small groups, as are short visits by closely
supervised children (so that they don't chase the cats around the
house - I worry that if the cats are frightened they might leave
home!). Our cats are afraid of dogs, so dogs are not able to
visit. Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. I look forward to
hearing from you.

MEXICO

UNUSUAL OPPORTUNITY available in the Yucatan Peninsula for an
early-retired, moderate-pension person who loves warm weather all
year, loves keeping up the grounds, and can maintain a home. An
easy-going, friendly person is much more important than Spanish
language skills. This position doesn't quite fit anywhere because
it could be just housesitting, it could be renting part or whole,
or it could be a money-making type of deal with you living in the
caretaker's quarters. It sounds kind of flaky at first glance,
but it's legit. I moved to Spokane, Washington in 1977 from Iowa
and have lived in the same house since 1978. I'm a retired
industrial engineer. I'm advertising this job/opportunity/rental
from Spokane because I would like some common connection with
whoever might be interested in taking me up on this. Hopefully,
if we both have some connections in Spokane that would engender
trust, and I could personally interview you to see how we get
along. The main requirements are to live there full-time which
provides security, maintain the extensive grounds, repair and
maintain the three bedroom home as required, and manage any
rental operation you want to set up. I would prefer a minimum
two-year commitment and the strength and skills to maintain the
yard and the house. If you like the idea of answering rental
inquiries and hosting visitors that would be a plus for both of
us as I would more likely hang on to the property instead of
trying to sell it. If you were living in the caretaker's portion,
you could probably stay on even if it did sell because the buyers
would need the same service. And I could throw in a
1%-of-selling-price severance if you had to move out with a
couple of months notice as real estate transactions are quite
slow down there. Compensation will be one of these three
scenarios: 1) best for you; I pay you $100/month for the
caretaker's quarters and you pay the very low utilities, 2) (my
preference; what I think it's worth) you pay $150/month for the
caretaker's quarters plus utilities, or 3) you pay $500/month
plus utilities for the whole building, rent it out yourself, or
invite your friends. Without looking it up, I think utilities are
about $50/month. By the way, my hearing is poor so please email
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX initially for house photos and more
information.

leave fresh food for the staff. There is a four week minimum
stay, but we prefer people to stay for two to three months.
Longer term help could be discussed after you have been here for

HAWAII

ALOHA! We are currently looking for a couple to share a farm
caretaker roll as part of our sustainable permaculture farm and
retreat while we come and go for summer travels. The caretaker
roll is an opportunity to grow, learn and immerse in an
established farm and community. The exchange is available
immediately through September 30th or possibly longer for about
15 - 18 hours a week per person. You will be on Sunday -
Thursday, or Tuesday - Saturday for about three to four hours a
day. The situation includes rent, utilities and a share of food
from the farm as well as the potential to generate income from
farm sales. Some sales are already established and there is room
for more income generation for self-motivated, inspired
individuals. Ideally, this position would be filled with folks
who want to generate income off the farm and/or do paid
farm/construction work through existing connections we have which
could supplement their income. The farm is located on 7.5 acres,
on the slopes of Mauna Loa Volcano with sweeping views of
Kealakekua Bay and Honaunau's City of Refuge on the Big Island of
Hawaii. We are a small community of people living on the land
creating a conscious model of food diversity, self-sufficiency
and holistic living. We host many folks from around the world as
renters, exchangers, guests in our guest house, and workshop
attendees. We love inspiring a holistic local lifestyle and being
a working demonstration of how we can do that. We have 15 years
of experience in sustainable agriculture and holistic living. On
the farm we have dozens of different types of trees and plants
growing that are integrated with our animals. Our animals include
poultry, ducks, rabbits, milking sheep and goats. We also have
over 150 Macadamia Nut trees. We are looking for inspired people
who want the opportunity to step into an established sustainable
farm and educational community and feel a sense of excitement and
engagement with the lifestyle and what it can offer. We would
love folks who want to connect with the local community, continue
to grow our collective networks, and share in a solution
oriented, fun, healthy lifestyle. We find folks who share our
desire for personal evolution in the midst of community evolution
will work best. We hope for open minded individuals with a
positive outlook on life who will bring energy, skills and
generative capacity to help the community and the farm function
well and flourish. We are looking for folks who have a passion
and curiosity for life, for cultivating self-reliance, and for
their own personal growth. In addition to farming, we enjoy
cooking, yoga, music, dance, qigong/neigung, meditation, reading,
swimming, snorkeling, hiking, exploring the islands, traveling,
learning about other cultures, etc. As a caretaker some of your
tasks will include feeding and watering animals, maintaining the
veggie gardens, mowing and weed wacking and minor general upkeep
of the farm and community spaces. Because we have animals, there
are daily morning and afternoon activities that need to be tended
to. Morning and afternoon "Land Dance" is when the animals are
fed and watered, so the day is split, but afternoon timing can be
flexible. Housing is in one of our rustic 12 x 20 cabins with
plywood floor. There is a shared living room, an outside heated
shower as well as inside bathroom and kitchen facilities. High
speed Internet is available in the communal house space as well.
The income that can be generated from the farm may include
macnuts, goat milk and cheese, fruit, chickens, ducks, value
added products, etc. We already have relationships with several
restaurants as avenues for sales and farmer's markets. If this
sounds like a good potential fit, we would love to hear from you!
Please write us with a resume or letter of interest and
experience as well as a photo doing something you love. You can
check out the farm at www.honaunaufarm.com Please email

to garden. There is an apple orchard over one hundred sixty years
old still bearing sixteen different varieties of apples. There
are also raspberries, gooseberries and loganberries to be
harvested. I need help restoring the house that has half fallen
down - it was built in 1869. The ranch is semi-remote, located
five miles to the closest neighbor but only fifteen minutes on
good roads to Pollock Pines with major shopping stores and
schools. There is excellent cell phone reception. The ranch is in
generator country which means you need to provide your own
generator as there is no electricity. It works, as I have lived
here over twenty five years. The trailer appliances run on
propane. We get quite a bit of snow in the winter so a
4-wheel-drive is advisable. There are possible job opportunities
with the right people but nothing going at the present moment. I
need motivated people who want to help get the business going
again and expand to build tiny houses on trailers. I have enough
lumber cut and dried to build 10 tiny houses. I have a sawmill,
kiln and woodworking tools. I would like to find somebody
interested in helping expand my lumber, cabinets and furniture
sales. Also interested in turning the ranch into an equestrian
campground and give guided horseback riding on the property and
the adjacent thousands of acres of US forest land. I do have
other caretakers here, so everything is not dependent upon just
one caretaker. No drug or alcohol abusers please. If we do agree
on the caretaker position there will be a $35 background check
fee. Please reply with your phone number to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

SITUATIONS-WANTED AD:

LOOKING FOR A CARETAKER OF PROPERTY JOB in Hawaii. I have been
caretaking some property in Kapoho and just found out that the
owner may be selling it so I am looking for a Caretaker job in
Kapoho or anywhere along the red road. I can offer: KEEP WATCH -
Keeping watch on the property for the owners is my primary
responsibility. I'm the eyes and ears of the owners and need to
let them know when problems arise with the buildings or land,
including roads, open spaces and landscaping. I need to watch the
comings and goings of people on the property too to make sure
everyone's safe and trespassers keep out. Ensuring that tenants
legally allowed to live on the property are the only ones doing
so is also part of the job. Familiarize myself with tenants'
vehicles so you'll easily recognize strangers. FIX UP - My
caretaker jobs require me to have at least minor fixer-upper
skills. I am able to do all the gardening and lawn care.
Alternatively, it may just fall on you to keep a list of
competent contractors you can call when something needs fixing.
I'm responsible for landscaping, painting and cleaning since I'm
responsible for the property's appearance. REPORT - I am
responsible for reporting regularly to the owners. I let owners
know when maintenance issues arise, especially when they're
bigger than a small repair that I can handle. I keep ledgers of
the repairs I made as well as unusual activities, such as if I
had to call local law enforcement to confront trespassers.
Turning in regular reports on rounds of the property and the
state of the buildings and grounds is also part of my job. Please
call XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX to review my caretaking experience and
answer questions you might have. Aloha.

ALOHA! We are currently looking for a couple to share a farm
caretaker roll as part of our sustainable permaculture farm and
retreat while we come and go for summer travels. The caretaker
roll is an opportunity to grow, learn and immerse in an
established farm and community. The exchange would be from around
mid to late June to September 30th or possibly longer for about
15 - 18 hours a week per person. You will be on Sunday -
Thursday, or Tuesday - Saturday for about three to four hours a
day. The situation includes rent, utilities and a share of food
from the farm as well as the potential to generate income from
farm sales. Some sales are already established and there is room
for more income generation for self-motivated, inspired
individuals. Ideally, this position would be filled with folks
who want to generate income off the farm and/or do paid
farm/construction work through existing connections we have which
could supplement their income. The farm is located on 7.5 acres,
on the slopes of Mauna Loa Volcano with sweeping views of
Kealakekua Bay and Honaunau's City of Refuge on the Big Island of
Hawaii. We are a small community of people living on the land
creating a conscious model of food diversity, self-sufficiency
and holistic living. We host many folks from around the world as
renters, exchangers, guests in our guest house, and workshop
attendees. We love inspiring a holistic local lifestyle and being
a working demonstration of how we can do that. We have 15 years
of experience in sustainable agriculture and holistic living. On
the farm we have dozens of different types of trees and plants
growing that are integrated with our animals. Our animals include
poultry, ducks, rabbits, milking sheep and goats. We also have
over 150 Macadamia Nut trees. We are looking for inspired people
who want the opportunity to step into an established sustainable
farm and educational community and feel a sense of excitement and
engagement with the lifestyle and what it can offer. We would
love folks who want to connect with the local community, continue
to grow our collective networks, and share in a solution
oriented, fun, healthy lifestyle. We find folks who share our
desire for personal evolution in the midst of community evolution
will work best. We hope for open minded individuals with a
positive outlook on life who will bring energy, skills and
generative capacity to help the community and the farm function
well and flourish. We are looking for folks who have a passion
and curiosity for life, for cultivating self-reliance, and for
their own personal growth. In addition to farming, we enjoy
cooking, yoga, music, dance, qigong/neigung, meditation, reading,
swimming, snorkeling, hiking, exploring the islands, traveling,
learning about other cultures, etc. As a caretaker some of your
tasks will include feeding and watering animals, maintaining the
veggie gardens, mowing and weed wacking and minor general upkeep
of the farm and community spaces. Because we have animals, there
are daily morning and afternoon activities that need to be tended
to. Morning and afternoon "Land Dance" is when the animals are
fed and watered, so the day is split, but afternoon timing can be
flexible. Housing is in one of our rustic 12 x 20 cabins with
plywood floor. There is a shared living room, an outside heated
shower as well as inside bathroom and kitchen facilities. High
speed Internet is available in the communal house space as well.
The income that can be generated from the farm may include
macnuts, goat milk and cheese, fruit, chickens, ducks, value
added products, etc. We already have relationships with several
restaurants as avenues for sales and farmer's markets. If this
sounds like a good potential fit, we would love to hear from you!
Please write us with a resume or letter of interest and
experience as well as a photo doing something you love. You can

scenery, open skies in a new neighborhood that manages to combine
the best of city living and nature in one place. We have a small,
green, pretty, low-upkeep private garden, a canal with ducks and
swans, and fish come right up to the house walls in the back, so
it feels like you're on a houseboat. Bikes are available for
treks to nearby lakes, forests, into town (15 minute bike ride/10
minutes by bus) to the heart of this quaint city. Utrecht is less
hectic and crowded than Amsterdam and getting around is much
easier. Our dog (male, uncastrated, friendly, sweet, rescue dog
from Greece, around 5-years-old, medium-small size) needs to be
walked four times a day (one longer one); all animals love to be
cuddled/attention; cats and dog need to be fed twice a day; the
garden clipped or tidied up once or twice and plants watered if
it's dry; and collect mail out of the mailbox every day.
Arrangements can possibly be made for our dog to stay somewhere
else for a day or a weekend if you wish to take a day trip or
visit somewhere further away overnight. The dog also travels well
by car or short distances with a leash attachment to the bike.
You can email for photos of our house and pets. Please call

FRANCE

LOOKING FOR CAT/HOUSESITTER from November 2015 until March 2016
for my home in Cordes, in the south of France, but I am flexible
and if the entire period is not suitable, then a three month
housesit from the end of November to the beginning of March might
work. Or I'm happy to house swap for a home in Sydney, Noosa, or
Newcastle, Australia. My home is a three bedroom, two bathroom
very beautiful, and fully restored old stone barn in a pretty
river valley in the south of France. The garden is quite small
but there are two terraces for outdoor living which is rare in
the winter. It is a very pretty village surrounded by fields of
sunflowers, poppies, wheat etc., and crops but in winter they are
bare. This is the Gaillac wine growing region so there are more
vineyards than anything else. The neighbors are very friendly.
There are about twenty five houses here. There is a fresh food
market every Saturday in Cordes and the Sunday at Saint Antonin
noble Val market is famous and has been made more famous since
the movie, The Hundred-Foot Journey with Helen Mirren last year.
The closest town is three kilometers with Cordes sur Ciel about
five kilometers away. Cordes was voted the village most preferred
in France by the French two years ago. There are no shops in
Labarthe-Bleys, so a car is required. We can arrange a rental if
required of my car at a good rate if necessary. Albi, a UNESCO
World Heritage city, is a 30 minute drive as is the other large
town, Gaillac. The three towns of Albi, Gaillac and Cordes sur
Ciel are known as the Golden Triangle. The closest international
airport is Toulouse and hour and quarter away. Paris is an easy
trip by train or an hour by air. The house has all the
technological connections one would expect, with a modern
kitchen, etc. It is heated by a slow combustion wood stove and
electric heaters. I would prefer a couple but am open to
enquiries to anyone who is happy to look after my cat and my
home. Matilda is very easy to care for. She comes and goes
through her own cat door and sleeps in front of the fire most
days in winter. It is very quiet in the winter in the country in
France as the people stay indoors or go somewhere else (after all
these years I have never figured it out). Many shops are closed.
If you want to go away for a couple of days now and then
sightseeing, my neighbors would feed Matilda, no problem so you
are not imprisoned here. I would send photos to any prospective
housesitter. And speak to them on Skype. References are required.
I am a retired business woman and have lived here now for almost
twelve years. Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

GEORGIA

NEED A HOUSE CARETAKER for the historic West End neighborhood of
Atlanta. It has large, airy rooms with wood floors and fire
places and a fenced-in yard. The living room and kitchen are
lightly furnished (furniture can be moved out). It is in walking
distance to a MARTA station, Kroger, a library, post office,
restaurants and shopping, in a beautiful historic neighborhood.
You will have use of the kitchen, living room, one bedroom and
bath. One bedroom will be closed off. I spend about five weeks
every summer in the house, sometimes less, never more (Oh, and I
am a woman). You must be a non-smoker, a considerate neighbor
(quiet and respectful, as my neighbors are great!), reliably pay
the utilities and rent, keep the yard and house nice like it were
your own (keep the walls, floors and furniture damage free, yard
mown and flower beds nice), forward the mail and be diligent and
conscientious about keeping in contact with me about issues. This
is a job and a responsibility and the most important aspect is
good and consistent communication. Rent is sharply reduced in
exchange for caretaking responsibilities. If you have experience
and are qualified to do construction, I would go rent-free for
the right person who can build up my attic. In exchange for the
peace of mind that my house is being well taken care of I can
offer the right person a great house that is theirs alone for 47+
weeks of the year, paying only utilities and nominal rent.
Deposit, criminal background check and credit check required. I
am looking for someone responsible and dependable to take care of
the house long term. I am hoping this will benefit us both.

HAWAII

WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR TWO SOLID INDIVIDUALS OR TWO COUPLES
to share a farm caretaker roll as part of our sustainable
permaculture farm and retreat while we come and go for summer
travels. The caretaker roll is an opportunity to grow, learn and
immerse yourself in an established farm and community. The
exchange would be from around June 1st to September 30th or
possibly longer for about 15 hours a week per person. You will be
on Sunday through Thursday or Tuesday through Saturday for about
three hours a day. The situation includes rent, utilities and a
share of food from the farm as well as the potential to generate
income from farm sales. Some sales are already established and
there is room for more income generation for self-motivated,
inspired individuals. Ideally, this position would be filled with
folks who want to generate income off the farm and/or do paid
farm/construction work through existing connections we have which
could supplement their income. Our farm is located on 7.5 acres,
on the slopes of Mauna Loa Volcano with sweeping views of
Kealakekua Bay and Honaunau's City of Refuge on the Big Island of
Hawaii. We are a small community of people living on the land
creating a conscious model of food diversity, self-sufficiency
and holistic living. We host many folks from around the world as
renters, exchangers, guests in our guest house, and workshop
attendees. We love inspiring a holistic local lifestyle and being
a working demonstration of how we can do that. We have 15 years
of experience in sustainable agriculture and holistic living. On
the farm we have dozens of different types of trees and plants
growing that are integrated with our animals. Our animals include
poultry, ducks, rabbits, milking sheep and goats. We also have
over 150 Macadamia Nut trees. We are looking for inspired people
who want the opportunity to step into an established sustainable
farm and educational community and feel a sense of excitement and
engagement with the lifestyle and what it can offer. We would
love folks who want to connect with the local community, continue
to grow our collective networks, and share in a solution
oriented, fun, healthy lifestyle. We find folks who share our
desire for personal evolution in the midst of community evolution
will work best. We hope for open minded individuals with a
positive outlook on life who will bring energy, skills and
generative capacity to help the community and the farm function
well and flourish. We are looking for folks who have a passion
and curiosity for life, for cultivating self-reliance, and for
their own personal growth. In addition to farming, we enjoy
cooking, yoga, music, dance, qigong/neigung, meditation, reading,
swimming, snorkeling, hiking, exploring the islands, traveling,
learning about other cultures, etc. As a caretaker some of your
tasks will include feeding and watering animals, maintaining the
veggie gardens, mowing and weed-wacking and minor general upkeep
of the farm and community spaces. Because we have animals, there
are daily morning and afternoon activities that need to be tended
to. Morning and afternoon "Land Dance" is when the animals are
fed and watered, so the day is split, but afternoon timing can be
flexible. Housing is in one of our 10x20 tents with plywood
floor. There is a shared living room, an outside heated shower as
well as inside bathroom and kitchen facilities. High speed
internet is available in the communal house space as well. The
income that can be generated from the farm may include macnuts,
goat milk and cheese, fruit, chickens, ducks, value added
products, etc. We already have relationships with several
restaurants as avenues for sales and farmer's markets. If this
sounds like a good potential fit, we would love to hear from you!
Please write us with a resume or letter of interest and
experience as well as a photo doing something you love. You can
check out the farm at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Please email

HAWAII

WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR TWO SOLID INDIVIDUALS OR TWO COUPLES
to share a farm caretaker roll as part of our sustainable
permaculture farm and retreat while we come and go for summer
travels. The caretaker roll is an opportunity to grow, learn and
immerse yourself in an established farm and community. The
exchange would be from around June 1st to September 30th or
possibly longer for about 15 hours a week per person. You will be
on Sunday through Thursday or Tuesday through Saturday for about
three hours a day. The situation includes rent, utilities and a
share of food from the farm as well as the potential to generate
income from farm sales. Some sales are already established and
there is room for more income generation for self-motivated,
inspired individuals. Ideally, this position would be filled with
folks who want to generate income off the farm and/or do paid
farm/construction work through existing connections we have which
could supplement their income. Our farm is located on 7.5 acres,
on the slopes of Mauna Loa Volcano with sweeping views of
Kealakekua Bay and Honaunau's City of Refuge on the Big Island of
Hawaii. We are a small community of people living on the land
creating a conscious model of food diversity, self-sufficiency
and holistic living. We host many folks from around the world as
renters, exchangers, guests in our guest house, and workshop
attendees. We love inspiring a holistic local lifestyle and being
a working demonstration of how we can do that. We have 15 years
of experience in sustainable agriculture and holistic living. On
the farm we have dozens of different types of trees and plants
growing that are integrated with our animals. Our animals include
poultry, ducks, rabbits, milking sheep and goats. We also have
over 150 Macadamia Nut trees. We are looking for inspired people
who want the opportunity to step into an established sustainable
farm and educational community and feel a sense of excitement and
engagement with the lifestyle and what it can offer. We would
love folks who want to connect with the local community, continue
to grow our collective networks, and share in a solution
oriented, fun, healthy lifestyle. We find folks who share our
desire for personal evolution in the midst of community evolution
will work best. We hope for open minded individuals with a
positive outlook on life who will bring energy, skills and
generative capacity to help the community and the farm function
well and flourish. We are looking for folks who have a passion
and curiosity for life, for cultivating self-reliance, and for
their own personal growth. In addition to farming, we enjoy
cooking, yoga, music, dance, qigong/neigung, meditation, reading,
swimming, snorkeling, hiking, exploring the islands, traveling,
learning about other cultures, etc. As a caretaker some of your
tasks will include feeding and watering animals, maintaining the
veggie gardens, mowing and weed-wacking and minor general upkeep
of the farm and community spaces. Because we have animals, there
are daily morning and afternoon activities that need to be tended
to. Morning and afternoon "Land Dance" is when the animals are
fed and watered, so the day is split, but afternoon timing can be
flexible. Housing is in one of our 10x20 tents with plywood
floor. There is a shared living room, an outside heated shower as
well as inside bathroom and kitchen facilities. High speed
internet is available in the communal house space as well. The
income that can be generated from the farm may include macnuts,
goat milk and cheese, fruit, chickens, ducks, value added
products, etc. We already have relationships with several
restaurants as avenues for sales and farmer's markets. If this
sounds like a good potential fit, we would love to hear from you!
Please write us with a resume or letter of interest and
experience as well as a photo doing something you love. You can
check out the farm at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX and on Facebook under
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Mahalo

KEEP WATCH

Keeping watch on the property for the owners is my primary

let them know when problems arise with the buildings or land,
including roads, open spaces and landscaping. I need to watch the
comings and goings of people on the property too to make sure

legally allowed to live on the property are the only ones doing
so is also part of the job. Familiarize myself with tenants'
vehicles so you'll easily recognize strangers.

FIX UP

My caretaker jobs require me to have at least minor fixer-upper
skills. I am able to do all the gardening and lawn care.
Alternatively, it may just fall on you to keep a list of
competent contractors you can call when something needs fixing.
I'm responsible for landscaping, painting and cleaning since I'm
responsible for the property's appearance.

REPORT

I am responsible for reporting regularly to the owners. I let
owners know when maintenance issues arise, especially when
they're bigger than a small repair that I can handle. I keep
ledgers of the repairs I made as well as unusual activities, such
as if I had to call local law enforcement to confront
trespassers. Turning in regular reports on rounds of the property
and the state of the buildings and grounds is also part of my
job.

WE NEED A CAT/HOUSESITTER from December 10, 2015 to January 22,
2016 in Lutwyche, Brisbane. We leave early on the morning of the
10th of December and return later on the 21st of January 2016. We
have a cat who needs feeding three times daily and let out in the
yard. We're looking for someone to care for the house and the
cat. We have someone who comes to cut the grass as the yard is
huge and we do not own a mower. Basic housecleaning duties
required (washing floors, cleaning counter tops, etc.). Our house
is an old Queenslander and not air conditioned. We have four
large fans and black out curtains to help stave off the heat. We
have a very comfortable queen-sized spare bed with black out
curtains. We are close to Centro Lutwyche and about 25 gyms. The
busway station is a five minute walk and the train station is a
10 minute walk. Our cat is very independent and other than a
small bit of kibble in the AM and before bed and a tin of wet
food at 5 - 6pm, he is fine to be left alone. His vet is just up
the road should any emergencies arise and will alert him to our
holiday. We will have ample food/supplies for him and his
vaccinations are up to date. All we really want is to come back
from our holiday to a clean house with all of our stuff intact
and a living cat. No children or smoking in the house. Please

NEW YORK

ANIMAL CARE MANAGER needed for a private residence in the
Woodstock area. We are currently looking for a dedicated and
compassionate person to help manage the care for over 80 animal
companions including cats, chickens, dogs, turkeys, goats,
miniature horses, miniature pot belly pigs, peacocks, pigeons,
canaries, finches, parakeets and rabbits. This is a private
residence and home for the animals, not a working farm so
sensitivity and discretion is required. The ideal candidate has a
background in animal care including knowledge of animal nutrition
and first aid. Veterinary technician experience is preferred but
not required. At a minimum, the employee should be dependable,
organized, flexible, and possess a strong work ethic, love for
animals, a strong sense of initiative, a willingness to learn and
the ability to work well with a variety of people. Must be
willing to perform independent research on all different species
as needed and have daily access to email and cell phone access.
Keen observational skills and thoughtful attention to detail is
imperative to identify potential health issues early on. Time
management, mindfulness and awareness are paramount. A polite,
professional and positive attitude is required at all times, for
working with both the animals and staff. As the animals are based
indoors and outdoors, all employees should expect to be prepared
to work outside in all weather conditions year round. A 4-wheel
or all-wheel drive vehicle is helpful due to the remote nature
and unique climate of the location. Reporting to work in all
weather conditions is imperative to the animals' well-being and
the functionality of the estate. As with any farm related
position, strenuous physical labor will be a part of every day.
Responsibilities and duties include but are not limited to:
working in collaboration with the animal staff to care and
monitor all animals on the property and supervise the staff
necessary to do so. The manager works together daily with the
estate owner to ensure the best possible health of her animals.
Performs daily general assessment of animal health and
temperament, which includes a daily walk through and handling of
animals to assess animal safety and well-being. Monitors upkeep
and security of all animal enclosures and assists in grooming of
all animals as needed (for example: brushing, teeth cleaning and
trimming, hoof trimming, hair/fur cutting, bathing, nail
clipping, beak trimming, nostril cleaning). Maintains detailed
and accurate animal health records including vet visits,
medications, vaccinations, working schedules, special diets,
weights and general information. The work schedule is four to
five days per week with hours approximating eight to nine hours
per day. The job will require flexibility around some holidays
and weekends. There is a set schedule in the animal care routine,
but occasionally things can change quickly due to the dynamic
nature of animal care. Thus, flexibility is critical to the role.
This is a very rewarding job as each staff member works closely
with the animals they care for and develops personal
relationships with them. Very generous hourly rate with room for
growth, health benefits and vacation time to be offered after a
three month trial period. Housing considered for the right
candidate. Interested candidates are asked to submit a resume
with three references to caretakergazette@gmail.com and please
include Animal Care Manager in the Subject Line.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR HOUSESITTERS to mind our house and two cats
from July 20 to the end of September in Robe on the Limestone
Coast of South Australia. We live in a comfortable three bedroom
home with an open living/dining/kitchen area that looks out onto
a river and lake. There is a very small garden to be maintained,
and hanging baskets to be watered. Our house is a two minute walk
from Long Beach and a 20 minute cliff walk into Robe itself. We
have solar panels and a water tank as our attempt at being
environmentally conscious. A free-standing wood fire and
reverse-cycle keep the whole house warm and cozy in the cooler
part of the year. There's a covered patio area and a small back
lawn and garden and the whole of this area has a 'zapper' fence
around it which keeps our cats in and other cats out. There are
no houses opposite or directly behind and only one neighbor along

following areas: mowing, weed-whacking, weeding, mulching,

part of the deal, although you will be provided some quantity of
fruits, vegetables when there is enough to share. Our preference

WISCONSIN

LIVE-IN FARM HOUSE CARETAKER wanted in Brooklyn, WI.
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is located 20 miles south of Madison. We are
a certified organic vegetable farm on 15 acres total with 10
acres under production. Please visit XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX to see
more about the farm and our business and to see pictures of the
property and house. There is a large farm house in which some
employees live, primarily in the summer. The house has been more
empty than full over the past few years with only one or two
employees living here. I need one dedicated person who wants to
live here, preferably someone interested in local food production
and with cooking skills (but not required or the most important
criteria), to help maintain organization in the house and
homestead portion of the farm, and to potentially cook some meals
for employees (particularly during the busier seasons when there
are more employees). An additional responsibility/job could be to
assist in packing CSA boxes and helping to organize and oversee
the CSA packing process. Taking this responsibility would greatly
increase time requirements and, therefore, compensation. There is
a moderate degree of flexibility regarding the responsibilities
included in this position. The most important responsibilities
include those regarding the house, its organization, and
awareness/prioritization of what maintenance is required. Someone
with the skills, interest and inclination to work on basic (or
more involved) maintenance concerns is a plus, but not required,
particularly if they are very organized and good at communicating
with those employees who do have such skills. If a person who is
interested in filling these "must have" responsibilities would
prefer to work off farm rather than assist in our CSA operation,
that is fine so long as basic farm/organizational needs as
outlined above are met. For this reason, potential compensation
varies widely from free rent, up to $1,000 per month, depending
on the level of responsibility taken. As implied above, the most
important qualities required for this situation are
organizational skills, desire for and propensity toward
cleanliness, and the ability to communicate and work with others.
Please call Chris, the property and farm owner, at
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX to talk about this opportunity and
possibilities and responsibilities associated with it.

AUSTRALIA

HOUSESITTER NEEDED in Snowy River, Victoria from July 1 to
September 30, 2015 negotiable. I live in one of the most
beautiful parts of Australia. It is isolated however. I would
like to go away over the winter and need someone or a couple to
look after my two dogs and five horses. My newly renovated home
is just up from the Snowy River and a short drive to the beach,
lakes and Snowy River estuary. Located six km from well serviced
town with a hospital and two supermarkets. My dogs are fed once a
day and I also throw seed out to the native birds at the same
time as feeding the dogs. Horses are also fed hay once a day.
They are all fed together so it isn't a big job. I have been a
vegetarian for 35 years and I want a housesitter or housesitters
who do not eat meat, chicken or fish. I am also into recycling,
composting and have solar panels. I want housesitters who love
animals and don't just tolerate them. My old horse will
appreciate being talked to every day as she will fret when I am
not here. I don't expect the dogs to be walked as they can get
enough exercise on the property; but I do want them to be loved.
Someone experienced with horses would be best just in case a
small cut needs to be tended to and the horse caught and tied up.
Non-smokers only. There is a lot of native wildlife here, so this
would be perfect for someone looking for peace and tranquility.

AUSTRALIA

DOG/HOUSESITTER NEEDED in Darlinghurst, Sydney from March 14th
through April 30th. I travel two to three times a year, between
three and six weeks, so this could become something regular. I
would also consider the right housesitter to stay for a period
before and after my trips as my past housesitter has done, if
required. You would need to be available a couple of days prior
to my departure date on March 16th. I am looking for someone who
has owned large dogs or have had contact with large dogs in the
past. The more time you have available to spend with the two
boys, the better chance you have of being considered. A retired
couple, a mature student or someone who works from home would go
to the top of the list. I cannot consider anyone who works a
normal 9 to 5 job, as my boys are accustomed to having people
around the house. They would destroy it if left alone all day,
every day. Sorry, but I cannot have any overseas travelers
passing through Sydney. My home is a luxury townhouse in
Darlinghurst, a 15 minute walk to Town Hall. The train and bus
are close by. The townhouse is located in a security complex with
a communal swimming pool. It is very quiet with beautiful gardens
and my home has its own tropical low maintenance garden. There is
undercover parking for one car. There are two levels, with the
ground floor having separate living, dining, kitchen, laundry and
powder rooms. The first floor has three bedrooms and two
bathrooms. One bedroom is a study with a convertible lounge and
the main bedroom is where the dogs sleep, it would only suitable
for a couple or a single male. Wireless internet, cable TV are
available as are free telephone calls in Australia. You need to
have the ability to look after and walk two very spoilt and
strong Boxer dogs, who have the run of the house. They need to be
walked every morning. They are typical Boxers, very excitable,
particularly when they see other dogs. Not aggressive, just
excitable and can be quite a handful when that happens. One of
the boys is on medication twice a day at around 7am - 6-7pm so
the housesit is only suitable for people who are able to be
available around those times. This would not be suitable for a
single female, as they would not be able to handle both dogs on
their own. Sorry, no one with their own cat or dog. If you are
interested in this situation, please provide details of any
previous dog sitting experience along with the reason that you
are interested in sitting. This would apply to a partner also. I
would also need to meet anyone interested, before I make a
decision. For me to consider your application, I need as much
information about you as possible. Please do not just send me a
phone number, and inform me that you have looked after dogs or
houses before. That is not enough information to allow someone to
live in your home and look after my precious companions. A
written formal agreement along with a security deposit is
required once the housesit is confirmed. Please email
