Hi JFM1 and welcome to :)

Can you please post this job offer in the Panama job offers > personal and household services here : ?

Thank you,

Priscilla team

Thank you for your reply< betsie and Abie,

Here is some additional information.

My property, Finca Bambu is a 5-acre lot directly on the water on Boca Brava Island including beachfront. Boca Brava Island is located across from Boca Chica Village in Chiriqui. Everything on the grounds will be brand-new. There is a main house, 2 smaller studios with kitchenettes, a pool, tennis court with small tennis cabana, and a privately-located Caretaker/Guest-house on the grounds. The construction will be completed in January 2017 with scheduled February 2017 move-in date.

I will not be living there permanently and will be visiting sporadically for weeks at a time, initially totally not more than 3-6 months/year (spread out over the year).

I am looking for a reliable and independent couple long-term, who will live on the grounds all-year. As I mentioned in the ad: someone who is handy in the garden and house, responsible for general maintenance, as well as someone who likes to cook and will monitor the cleaning. In my absence, it is important to have someone on the property to represent me, keep an eye on everything, for general upkeep and security purposes. A driver’s license is necessary.

I would provide the brand-new apartment  free of charge. You will receive monthly income plus a monthly utility fee (water, electricity, cable, and internet). There are brand-new electrical, cable, internet water systems of high US standards.

Since you owned your own house and land, are you looking into buying another property. Boca Brava is another beautiful cornerof Pamama paradise, howoever, I am not selling anything at this time.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with your questions. I would appreciate hearing more about you and your Panama intentions at your convenience.

All the best,
Jodi Mays

My wife and I may be interested. We are retired and have spent three months in the Volcan area.  We will be house sitting in Volcan mid October to December, then will be house sitting in Costa Rica for the month of December. After that we do not have anything scheduled.    Gardening, cooking and minor maintenance is in our skill base.  We do have property in the US and will need to arrange time to go back occasionally.  Happy to discuss this in detail and provide references.

Thank you for the response, We will email you directly to continue with questions.




My wife and I are taking a early retirement and plan on moving to Panama in Jan or Feb of 2017. This House sit sounds very interesting, I am a forest Tech and an avid gardener, my wife in a social worker and is very good at taking care of the home and is an excellent cook ( she enjoys cooking for others).
The only thing holding us up right now is, we have to sell our house before we move. Our house sits on 12 acres which I take pride in keeping it looking great.
If you are interested, you can contact us at any time at ***
