Hello, we are a couple looking for a simple and modest home to care-take or rent for at least a month beginning in April, and potentially longer. We are hoping to find a small place in the countryside around San Isidro/Tinamaste, ideally close to a bus stop, which is ready for living with a bed, some furniture, kitchen supplies and the basics.

A little about us:

We both have much experience caretaking houses and farms in Costa Rica. We have extensive experience with tropical permaculture and we are very clean, friendly and responsible people.

Fluent English and Spanish.

If anybody knows of an opportunity that sounds like a good fit, please email us at
