Assignment Description:

Hello,


I'm looking for a couple to caretake, please only respond if you are a couple wanting to caretake without pets or children. Best suited for a retired couple.

 I have a property in the Turks and Caicos Islands (Providenciales) the main island. The property is currently up for sale. It consists of a 1/2 acre corner lot, within a 3-minute walk of the world-famous, Grace Bay beach. The property is fenced and gated, with a pool, gardens, and 2 separate homes. One home is rented as a vacation rental - you are welcome to view the site on VRBO.

 The other home is a two-story detachable building with a small one-bedroom apartment above the garage. This is the owner's quarters where I reside. On the garage level, you will find a queen bedroom self-sufficient studio suite that can be rented as well. 

 I’m wanting to go home and visit my parents. There will be no pets involved in the sit. I’m requiring a non-smoking, non-partier, type of couple to be caretakers for the pool, gardens, and for guests that may want to rent the vacation home.

 You would be required to welcome, check-in, and answer questions and/or assist in minor repairs. There will be no banking or bill paying required. (as all this is online). At this moment I have no guests for the requested time reserved however, that can change rapidly. Your responsibility would be their host/hostess. Afterward, you would arrange for my cleaning team to come in and turn over the house to be ready for the arrival of any future guests. The pool is saltwater, which would require maintenance. I do have a robot cleaner, however, the sides of the walls do require daily brushing and spraying off of the pool deck. The gardens are easy to maintain with trimming and using the electric weed cutter. If there are major (tall) hedges to be trimmed I have a gardening team that may be called for assistance.

 I would have you stay in the small queen bed studio, (lower level on my side), while I was on the property, to familiarize you with the areas that I require assistance. Once I leave you would be welcome to move upstairs to my apartment if you wish at that time. Again, when I return on the first of November 2021 I would ask you to move to the lower level small queen bed studio for our overlapping time.

 Of note: June to November is hurricane season. Our last hurricane that passed close by and caused any damage to the island, was in 2017. My home(s) are built out of concrete walls and, withstood the 150 mph winds with only a few shingles coming off the roof and, causing minor water damage inside. Of course, I have boards to board up the windows, BBQs for cooking without power, and a 9000-watt generator. 

 I would leave you the use of my vehicle, so you can gather supplies for yourself and guests (water, toilet paper, paper towel, etc - are supplied for the paying guests). You will have plenty of time daily to explore our wonderful, friendly island. Snorkeling is a mere 3-minute walk from your doorstep. Perhaps, you prefer a morning beach walk on Grace Bay's 12-mile beach, having the buttery sand between your toes. All of your culinary needs will be satisfied by one of our appetizing restaurants with world-famous chefs. If this is of interest.

 Please let me know and, perhaps we can arrange a video call to further discuss. Thank you for your time,
