Jerry Smith and Sally Martin owners of Jungle Tide are CONSIDERING selling up and returning to the UK. If you are interested in spending a year (possibly longer) living at Jungle Tide in the Hanthana mountains, Jerry and Sally are keen to discuss this with you. The arrangement would be to pay a monthly sum for the accommodation, services of the staff (cleaning, laundry, cooking if wanted etc.), electricity and fuel, and TV/internet. You would then also have the option of running the guest house business in return for a share of the takings. The arrangement would ideally start early 2023 and continue for an initial twelve months, with the possibility of extension. Jungle Tide would not be offered for sale during this period, i.e.your occupancy would be guaranteed. Interested in buying Jungle Tide, read this first and click this link for more details.
