Assignment Description:

We are an American couple who are blessed to own a lovely 6 Bedroom home on 10 acres just North of Tampa Florida. We are looking for a mature couple* to help us out with Gardening, Cleaning, General Home Maintenance and looking after 2 mini ponies and a fluffy bunny.

*Sorry, but this means no singles or families. Past experience shows that our place is too remote for single folks and doesn't work well for us or them, and as far as families, we can only offer a one bedroom suite that accommodates two people only.

We ask for 25 hours work/week per person in exchange for the use of our 6 bedroom with pool home on 10 acres (utilities and Wi-Fi included) We don't micro-manage, you can do everything in 3 days and take 4 days off, or put in a few hours each day.

These are the types of tasks we need help with: General caretaking of the property; General gardening;  mow lawn (we have a ride-on lawn mower) trim hedges with electric trimmer; plant flowers and vegetables; weeding; ; Rake when needed; Fertilize fruit trees; Experience in additional types of property and home maintenance a big plus! We also have two mini-ponies and a bunny that need looking after.

Enjoy the 'nature coast' of Florida with Kayaking, fishing, hiking! White sugar-sand beaches just minutes away on the Gulf of Mexico or farther afield in Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Sarasota. Explore the Disney Parks, Marine World, Universal Studios as Orlando is just an 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive. Busch Gardens and  the lovely Adventure Park water park in the city of Tampa.  Thanks, Ernie and Terry
Asking for at least a three week commitment,( could be longer if mutually beneficial) anytime from March 2021 to September 2021.

We require a mature married couple* that own a home or have owned a home in the past. Please be aware that you must, ABSOLUTELY rent/bring your own car/motorbike while you are here. If you are coming from outside the United States, it is often much cheaper to rent a vehicle long term from your home country than within USA. Also, though we adore animals, we ask that caretakers do not bring their pets for this assignment.
Note: We will be on-site during the months March, April, May and September to work along side you.
