Second Chance Ranch
We are seeking a reliable couple for our 4 acre horse property in northeast Tucson, available early in 2021.
We are here November through April, and then we and our two horses and two dogs leave for an AZ mountain home. When we are here, the work averages 15-20 hours weekly, and much less when we are away.
The setting is quiet and beautiful, with stunning views of the Catalina and Rincon Mountain ranges. The community is gated and is surrounded by horse ranches. Our immediate neighbors have donkeys that love treats. We are finishing the construction of a new separate open concept caretaker house with a garage, two bedrooms, washer & dryer and small storage room. It is just under 1000 square feet of living space indoors plus a covered patio with mountain views. In the summer months when we are away you will have use of a gorgeous pool, barbecue and outdoor seating around a firepit. We provide all utilities year-round (internet, power, water, garbage pickup, heating/cooling). You must be totally nonsmoking, non-drinking and not users of any drugs, and must love animals! You must have horse care experience.
Work consists of caring for two gentle horses, occasional dog sitting, cleaning our house when we are here, maintaining the pool, landscaping, drip irrigation, and the barn (horses are not stalled so barn houses hay, tools and tack), taking care of equipment, and performing occasional home repairs and upkeep as needed. You should be able to maintain an ATV and manure spreader.
No salary is provided. The job is perfect for a retired couple or for people who work from home. You would be free to have some outside work, and we are flexible when it comes to time off for family visits, vacations, etc. We want people for the long term, who will think of this as their home. We have a year-round caretaker family at our mountain home and they have been with us for about 4 years and we consider them friends. Caretakers at our former Tucson home have also become friends and occasionally house sit for us at our current home. We would provide you with current and former caretaker contact information as our references. We look forward to hearing from you.
