My four year old son and I love barefoot living with lots of nature, especially swimming options. We are used to sleeping with A/C at night here in the Yucatan summer, but we don't need it necessarily. I'd enjoy a kid-friendly house/community if possible. My exact preferred dates for 2019 are Aug 26 - Sep 6th (though I'm also open to July 29 - Aug 9th or Aug 12- Aug 23).
Member description
I'm looking to do a housesit or house swap in Mexico in the coming months. I live in Bacalar, Q.Roo (4 hours drive south of Cancun) with my four year old son who'll be travelling with me. I have a couple houses I can offer for a swap including the Casa del Cenote Negro (Airbnb listings below). I'd love to visit Holbox or a beach town in Campeche or Oaxaca in particular, though I'm open to other places especially if they're nature-rich and/or kid-friendly. I welcome the opportunity to care for pets and plants/gardens and my main need is WiFi for my online teaching work. I don't need (or have) a TV. I love outdoor kitchens and farm to table cooking/eating. I'm a 46 year old single mom and online professor. I am a non smoker, non drinker and I recently lost my 13 year old beloved dog to cancer.
