We have a spare room with private bath available for someone to live in, in exchange for daily help around here (SunDogHouse.com). We are both massage therapists (Beach Massage & Bodywork Delivered is our business). Our property has lots of tropical fruits trees and flowers and a small private pool to cool off in. References absolutely required.

Do you also offer volunteer vacations? For example, maybe someone could clean, scoop litter boxes, walk dogs or whatever you need help with for 3 or so hours a day in exchange for a free place to stay on vacation. I'd think working 3 hours a day would still leave someone with plenty of time each day to explore the island. Might be a win-win! : )
Posted by TerryCSTX at 12/25/14 06:01:23Thanks for your thoughts, Happy CowGirl. We only have one small room and it's just too much trouble to have the turnover. We've been trying to rent it out on a short-term basis, but it's really inconsistent. I'd like to have someone that I can depend on on a daily basis - At least for a couple of months during our busy season (tourists get beach massages when they come to the warmer climes in wintertime). :)
