CALIFORNIA 

CARETAKER WANTED for a Mountain Ranch in Pollock Pines. I have a
two bedroom/one bathroom mobile home trailer available (the
trailer appliances run on propane) in exchange for help around
the ranch and building tiny houses on trailers. Also possible is
a live-in situation in my house for the right person. I have been
inundated with replies so when responding please describe what
abilities you have and work experience. I am leaning toward
retired people or somebody who would be around a lot but will
consider anybody who brings a lot to the table so to speak. There
is room for horses, over three acres, 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 and business
management. A MacGyver type of person would be a plus. Must be a
self-starter and it would be great if you have a lot of your own
tools. A great deal of common sense is essential for living on a
ranch and I can't stress that enough. There are two trout streams
on the property and plenty of places to garden. Unfortunately
there is no 420 growing here. An apple orchard over one hundred
sixty years old is 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, as 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! 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 on 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. This is
an l64 acre timber property. I have sawmill, kiln and woodworking
tools. 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 so everything
is not dependent upon just one caretaker. No drug or alcohol
abusers please. There is a background check required. Please
reply with your phone number to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

IDAHO

CARETAKER COUPLE needed as Lodge Managers at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Idaho starting in six months (June 25, 2018). Working at
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX will be memorable because 2018 will be the
first season of operation since a devastating 2008 internal fire
burned the 1930s lodge to the ground. It's a unique operation
because it is served primarily by a backcountry airstrip (that's
how supplies are delivered too), is off the grid, and is operated
by an aviation non-profit, Idaho Aviation Foundation, which also
painstakingly rebuilt it over a five year period. If you like to
work hard and play hard off the grid in a rugged setting - then
this job may be for you! The ideal two Caretaker/Lodge Managers
are good friends or a couple who work well together can share
accommodations, like to wear many hats and think on their feet.
They love being where seasonal visitors number in the hundreds
not millions - and enjoy delighting those guests whether they are
on a day trip arriving via aircraft or a week-long stay on ATVs.
Amenities are simple: we generate our own electricity via hydro,
there is no cell service nor landline, we have slow but working
Wi-Fi, the nearest town of 3,000 is over three hour drive
away...but the lodge's huge fireplace and spruce log construction
welcomes those who truly want to disconnect. Visitors are
thrilled to visit the 2.3 million acre Wilderness a stone's throw
away, yet enjoy the hospitality and safety XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
provides to those who cannot or do not wish to camp. Managing the
Lodge has a variety of duties shared by two people (and some
volunteer help), including:
Cheerfully greeting/serving guests, answering questions, relating
area history
Planning, preparing and serving meals and drinks (including
wine/beer)
Ordering and storing food/supplies and merchandise
Cleaning lodge and guest rooms, including a small cabin and yurt
and maintaining clean linens
Collecting payments for food and merchandise as needed,
maintaining records 
Mowing/watering the lawn and irrigating pasture
Maintaining buildings and equipment, performing minor maintenance
as needed
Cutting/splitting firewood as needed
Promoting XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX via our website/social media posts
two times per week
Delegating work to volunteers (handling dishes, laundry, garbage,
etc.)
Applicants must be over 19, have a valid drivers' license and be
able to lift 50 lbs.
The rebuilt XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX has four comfortable rooms for
rent to the public, and will normally accommodate six to eight
people with up to 20 possible via a backcountry yurt and small
cabin nearby. It is known as a special 'fly in' breakfast spot,
so weekends can be busy in the morning with slower times
mid-week. The Caretaker/Lodge Managers will run the Lodge with a
fair amount of independence while working cooperatively with a
Supervisor located in Boise, Idaho. Please email
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX for a full job description and to request an
application. The deadline for applications is January 12, 2018.
Candidates for interviews will be selected, and then final
decision/offers to be made by early March.

ARIZONA

VERSATILE HANDY PERSON AND GARDENER needed for a beautiful
healing retreat sanctuary in Sedona, AZ. 11 hours per week work
in exchange for use of a small, one bedroom RV trailer with
outdoor covered patio in a private setting in Oak Creek Canyon.
Must be reliable, have your own vehicle, cell phone (not ATT), be
friendly and work well with guests. Possible long-term situation
for the right person, also some paid work is possible (including
pet-sitting for two dogs and cat). Flexibility, creativity,
organizational skills and a sunny nature are a plus. The position
is now open. Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

CALIFORNIA

CARETAKER WANTED for a Mountain Ranch in Pollock Pines. I have a
two bedroom/one bathroom mobile home trailer available (the
trailer appliances run on propane) in exchange for help around
the ranch and building tiny houses on trailers. Also possible is
a live-in situation in my house for the right person. I have been
inundated with replies so when responding please describe what
abilities you have and work experience. I am leaning toward
retired people or somebody who would be around a lot but will
consider anybody who brings a lot to the table so to speak. Room
for horses over three acres 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 and business management. A
MacGyver type of person would be a plus. Must be a self-starter
and it would be great if you have a lot of your own tools. A
great deal of common sense is essential for living on a ranch and
I can't stress that enough. There are two trout streams on the
property and plenty of places to garden. Unfortunately there is
no 420 growing here. An apple orchard over one hundred sixty
years old is 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, as 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! 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 on 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. This is
an l64 acre timber property. I have sawmill, kiln and woodworking
tools. 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 so everything
is not dependent upon just one caretaker. No drug or alcohol
abusers please. There is a background check required. Please
reply with your phone number to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is looking for a live-in caretaker/host to
join the team. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is Perth's largest tourist
holiday park with 68 accommodation units and 200 powered sites
for travelling caravaners, tenters and backpackers. The position
is four days on (one weekend day) and three days off with
comfortable accommodation provided year round onsite to the
successful applicant (and partner if applicable). The basis of
the caretaker/host role is to ensure the smooth daily running of
the park. Typical daily duties include: meeting guests at
check-in and helping reverse their caravans into position,
general landscaping, grounds including mowing/whipper
snipper/chainsaws and accommodation unit maintenance, guest
information with some office duties, and pool and spa testing and
maintenance. On your rostered nights you will be "on-call" for
any after-hours arrivals, ensuring there are no night time
disturbances from guests or visitors, ensuring the pool is
vacated at closing time, and any night time emergency
maintenance. Experience within the accommodation and tourism
industry is not required and most skills for the job can be
taught onsite, however previous experience in dealing with groups
of tourists etc. would be a benefit as the live-in on-call
position is not for every personality and requires exceptional
reliability. The applicant must learn our computer booking
system, possess general maintenance skills from TV antenna's,
basic plumbing (tap washers, reticulation, etc.) and good grounds
keeping skills. Most importantly though is being physically fit,

cover letters to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX 
Note: we unfortunately do not hire "couple teams" that is common
within the industry at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Please do not submit
an application as a couple as it is not what we are looking for.
Thank you.

the eastern Queensland coast, starting between December 28th 2017
and January 3rd 2018. This position comes with free accommodation
in a private cabin, and two or three days of paid work a week
depending on demand. Accommodation is free, and what you get is a
new two bedroom stand-alone cabin with lounge room, kitchen,
laundry, bathroom, veranda with BBQ, table and chairs, ceiling
fans, and a fire pit. The caretaker couple must like living in a
very remote part of the island. The position requires a couple
around 30 years to 55 years old. Must have some kind of handyman
skills and cleaning skills. Must have a four wheel drive car 4x4.
Must want to work doing similar duties cleaning two or three days
a week. This is a fully paid position for about four hours a day
for our cleaning business close by. If you are looking for a
short-term caretaking - then this position isn't for you, as we
are looking for long-term caretakers only. You would be living
there as caretakers on the block with two houses on 1.5 acres of
land. You need to keep the two houses clean inside and out once a
week (about five hours work in that job), keep the grass mowed
with our ride-on mower, do some garden work (about two hours a
week), and general handyman duties around the property (about
seven hours a week). In total the work to be done around the
property would take roughly about 14 hours a week plus with the
extra paid work you would work about three to four days a week.
It's a great place to relax in all the spare time you will have,
with the ocean, surf fishing, calm water fishing, crabbing, salt
water rock pools for swimming close by, fresh water lakes and
rainforests. Local caretaker couples should feel free to phone
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX with any questions. Thank you.

AUSTRALIA

WE ARE LOOKING FOR FARM CARETAKERS rather than just housesitters
to look after two properties (a seven minute drive apart) on the
beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland. We are willing to contribute
some wages on top of the accommodation for three to six months.
We have two options ... you stay in our comfortable furnished two
bedroom self-contained cottage and we pay you $100 per week on
top of free accommodation and services. Alternatively you can
bring your own caravan or RV and we can provide a site for you on
the property with electricity and river water, and we can then
afford to pay you $200 per week. We estimate 20 hours total per
week on average, of light duties and some coordination of things
like arranging water and gas deliveries, helping a guest who has
locked themselves out or cannot work out how to turn the TV on,
checking that the cleaners (who we employ separately) have done a
good job, and that the mowing man has done what is required at
the bigger property. In terms of the cattle, we need for the
water troughs and fences to be checked every two to three days
(an easy drive around the paddocks), cattle to be yarded and
spayed once every three weeks (this takes about two to three
hours for two people), garden watering if it doesn't rain and
generally keeping an eye on things, and making a judgement call
if a repairer is required to be brought in to do work. There is a
little ride on mowing - maybe two to three hours every two to
three weeks, and there is a vegetable patch to maintain (and eat)
and about eight fruit trees. One pet is OK to bring, providing
that it does not bother the neighbors who often bring dogs to the
property, nor create barking noise problems if left alone. We are
in our 50's and have lived in the Mary Valley for around 12
years, operating two holiday homes right on the banks of the Mary
River. We have four children ... all in Brisbane and grown up
now, and have transitioned to semi-retirement in the last year.
We like to sail and travel ... and aspire to do more of these
later this year. You can see our properties on

MARYLAND

FREE RENT for a housesitter/petsitter from Thursday 6/22/2017 -
Thursday 7/6/2017 for a four-bedroom house, built in 1912 but
remodeled in 2005. Located a mile north of the Washington
DC/Maryland border (inside the 495 Beltway) and less than a mile
from either the Takoma Park or Silver Spring metro stations. 1/8
of a mile to the nearest bus stop. 0.5 mile walk to supermarkets,
movie theatres, mall and the rest of downtown Silver Spring. We
are in a very walkable neighborhood. We have Wi-Fi, Netflix and
Amazon Prime, along with a 2013 hot tub and a sinfully huge and
leafy backyard for this urban a neighborhood. The house is
cluttered but with an international and artistic decor. We have
lots of hand painted furniture from Latin America. On the street
parking is available with a residential parking permit (comes
with the house). The house is on a hill and it is 26 steps from
the street to our front door - not very wheelchair or
mobility-impaired friendly. We have a 12 lb. 8-year-old miniature
poodle, 5-year-old 12 lb. cat, and a 20-gallon fish tank. The cat
is amazingly affectionate. The dog can do tricks. The fish are
many breeding guppies, a danio, and bristlenose plecostamus. The
dog needs at least a short walk in the morning and the evening -
preferably one in between as well. With this many pets already
housed here - other dogs and cats is probably not a good idea.
There are a minimal number of house plants that need watering
weekly. I would need to meet with you to go over the directions
either by 8:30am on June 22 or earlier in the week. Our recent
housesitters included a middle school teacher from Florida and
two different AU graduate students. Please send a letter of
interest and your references (prefer housesitting and petsitting
experience and references) to caretakergazette@gmail.com and
include "Silver Spring Position" in the Subject Line for our

is a summary of the range of tasks you will be helping us with:
1. Animal Farm Park Helper ~ we have 100+ animals (ponies,
llamas, rabbits, sheep, goats, guinea pigs, ducks, chickens,
etc.). You will get involved in their feeding, mucking out
(removing poo from) their fields and cages, general care, etc.
and help welcome visiting families and make sure they enjoy and
get the most from their visit.
2. Customer Services and Reception ~ no one works just in
reception. Everyone helps welcome visitors, takes bookings and

Wagon, House Truck, Farmers Cottage, Yurt, Tipi, Railway
Carriage) need cleaning, linen changing, etc. for our overnight

to keep our main house clean and tidy, cook meals for everyone,
bake cakes, etc.

own garden need weeding, grass and hedge cutting, etc.

throughout the year and seasonally, including: painting,
electrical, fencing, digging, carpentry, chopping wood, animal
cage building and repairs.
You will help us with a range of the above tasks, depending on
the time of day, and what needs doing. Your meals, accommodation
and laundry are provided in exchange for your help ~ there is no
pay ~ sorry! The minimum stay is two weeks (or more). Some have
stayed longer, up to six months (the longer the better, from our
point of view). Please - no smokers, and no vegetarians, food
allergies, or fussy eaters. Our meals are based around lamb,
chicken, pork and other meats from animals reared on the farm. We
are just four kilometers from the Kaikoura Town Centre, the
i-SITE (tourist information), whale watch and dolphin encounter
offices, etc. (do not worry if you have not got transport, we
will pick you up in town!). If you are interested, or you have
some questions, please send us a message, including: your phone

NEW ZEALAND

WE ARE OFFERING SHORT-TERM FULL BOARD to the right person(s)
interested in experiencing life on our high country station in
the mountains of New Zealand. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is a 35,000
acre sheep, beef and horse property at the head of the Rangitata
River in the Southern Alps. The station provided the backdrop for
much of the Lord of the Rings film "The Two Towers" and Edoras/Mt
Sunday is only 15 minutes down the road from us. The Station
includes a large Clydesdale Horse Stud. The Clydesdales are an
asset on Erewhon where we endeavor to use horses instead of
vehicles. Next week we finish harvesting our oats and we need
some extra pairs of hands to help with carting the oat sheaves
off the paddocks and cutting them for chaff to feed the hungry
horses when they are working hard. This is hot, dusty, labor
intensive work and requires fit, strong, hardworking, helpful
people with a great get up and go attitude. Not suitable for
people with hay fever or allergies. When not doing the oats there
is loads of gardening and painting to be done around the place.
Harvesting is weather dependent but average is about four hours a
day. Some days may be fuller but balanced with a full day off
elsewhere. There is no internet/cell phone coverage and it is not
suitable for vegetarians/fussy eaters as we live off meat from
the station. However, if you are after a great experience in a
spectacular location please send through details of your
suitability for the role. We are looking at help for the upcoming
week: March 6th - 10th. I know this is late notice, but you would
need to be here Sunday night, March 5th or by 10am on Monday,
March 6th. Your own vehicle is required. We need hard-working
people who can handle early starts and thrive in this
environment. This is an isolated challenging place so excellent
English, a sense of humor and social skills are a must! This is a
very special property therefore only people who can appreciate
this amazing opportunity should contact us. Erewhon is a
drug/smoke free environment and slackers/tire-kickers need not
apply. Warm comfortable shared accommodation available. Please
note this is not a paid position but a part day of honest work in
exchange for full board. More details are on our website at
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Please note we get inundated with
applications to work at Erewhon and can struggle to reply
individually to all applicants. This is a very specific
short-term opportunity only suitable to people able to get here
and ready to go ASAP. We are 2.5 hours from the Christchurch
airport and you will need your own transportation but we can
assist with fuel money. Thanks.
