Needing a place in Costa Rica to stay a month?

I'm looking for someone who'd be interested in dog/house sitting for a month, beginning October 12th. My place is on the beach in Nosara. Another HU member was just here for two weeks for another trip I took last month, see http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/tstories/tiegs/. Now I need someone else again. I'm in a local fishing village, but all the ammenties of gringoland are a mile away. You can see pictures at www.OnaMissionFromDog.com/arrival.htm
You have to love dogs!

I'm the one who dog sat just recently. I'll be happy to give the dogs a good reference, and answer any questions I can.

I would love to, but unfortunately, I won't be in Costa Rica for atleast 2 weeks. I guess I just really wanted to say that it looks like you have a great place. I am jealous.

Hope you find someone soon,

Ryan

OK, I'm covered for the first two weeks, but still looking for someone interested in the second two weeks. I arrive back on November 13th late afternoon.
Pictures of the area are at http://onamissionfromdog.com/may.htm and http://onamissionfromdog.com/arrival.htm. Looking for someone who love dogs, and will give them walks. They come with references. ;-)
I'm near Nosara, gringo area, which is about 1 1/2 hours from Nicoya. Anyone en route?

looking again

I've just received word that the young guy taking care of my dogs is a waste and now my neighbors are picking up the slack. Which is fine, but I'd prefer someone who could give them walks and affection. Anyone planning on being in the Nosara area anytime soon? I still arrive back Nov 13th.
