Management couple with a good level of Spanish and a passion for cooking wanted for 2.5 months in a beautiful eco-lodge set in a lush coffee farm in the mountains above Matagalpa city in Nicaragua.

Position is available from early November 2016 to mid January 2017. 

We are Pete from England and Anna from New Zealand and we have spent the last year setting up a new tourism business in a coffee farm in the lush Mountains of Northern Nicaragua. Our business is called Finca Musica del Bosque and you can find us on Facebook, Instagram, tripadvisor, Air Bnb, booking.com or on our website.

We have a small eco-lodge, which was built 5 years ago, with 4 guest bedrooms and a large double room for the management couple. We have four chickens and a small piece of land for growing vegetables. We are after a couple with some experience of home maintenace, a good grasp of Spanish, a drivers license to drive our Toyota hliux 4x4 truck and a passion for cooking healthy vegetarian food. We are 20mins drive from Matagalpa city, only accessible by 4x4. After the drive we have a 10minute walk up a hill to reach the lodge - we are really off the beaten track! We have some local transport options available for guests but we also pick people up from the city centre on occasions. 

The lodge is a beautiful place to relax and unwind and we have built up a reputation of having comfortable and clean lodging, great coffee and farm tours in English and tasty vegetarian food from our cafe. We would love to hand the keys over to a confident and experienced couple looking for an escape to the cooler climate of the mountains surrounded by forest and wildlife.  We would be on hand for 1-2 weeks of full training and would expect the couple to run the lodge relatively independently for 2 months from mid November 2016 to mid January 2017 while we take a break to visit family. All profits from the kitchen and tours would go to the management couple and payments for rooms would go to the business owners in order to pay rent and bills. 

The work consists of managing guests booking, all cooking, general maintenance of building, cleaning on occasions, although we have a local cleaner to help and to do the washing of the sheets. It's a wonderful life we have in the mountains and would suit a fit couple that love nature, tourism and have a passion for a healthy life.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope to find a couple who match our passion for the simple life! 

Gracias, 

Pete and Anna
