Looking to exchange with nice English speaking couple We are looking for a couple who would like to come to San Jose once in a while to stay and take care of our 4 bedroom B&B in Escazu, and Louie our adorable himalayan cat. We offer 30% of the income and a free room. We are a Costa Rican - Austrian couple and due to our souvenir business we need to travel around the country several times a year, for a period of 3 to 10 days at a time. In our B&B we offer personalized service, therefore we prefer a friendly, outgoing couple who enjoy meeting people and who would be willing to prepare breakfast for our guests if required (breakfast is not automatically included in the price). We have a cleaning lady who comes to do the rooms when needed, so you will not have to clean or do the rooms. Please take a look at our website: Contact: Barbara and Otto tel. 2289-9154 cel. 8897-5195
