favorite this post Retirement Apartment for maintenance help (Texas Coast) hide this posting unhide

Available July 1st 2019. I have a self service laundromat in Palacios TX with an attached efficiency apartment. Perfect size for 1 person. Probably too small for two. I am looking for one mature and capable adult to open and close plus Clean the mat for an hour per day, maybe run an occasional errand. It is easy and mostly at you own pace. I can easily do all the required tasks in less than 2 hours per day average even on the busiest weeks . Way less. But I ask for 2 hours per day in case you had to run errands , get supplies, mow the grass, etc.

In exchange, you would have a nice 1 bedroom apartment, all bills paid including , satellite TV movie channels, computer /high speed internet, A/C, stove, fridge, washer dryer, long distance phone etc.

Perfect for retired military or handyman. This is a small town in South Texas. everything moves at a potentially painfully slow pace. We require a several day try out before you offer commit. Im am wishing to do a seamless transition in July so would like to meet you and show you the ropes well ahead of July 1st.
This is perfect for someone with a small outside income or part time job. this is an opportunity not a retirement (unless you are already retired). Any work, service, maintenance you perform above the basic list agreed upon would be compensated. There is plenty of work in this small town. if you can paint, plumb, odd job, handyperson, clean,landscape, problem solve, mow grass,etc , then i can give you 5-20 hours per week paid employment. This varies by season .

You are not expected to hang out at the laundromat all day. Just need to do a 10 minute mini clean up every couple of hours and a major clean (mop) once a day. You can easily work an outside job and have no bills. You set your schedule. You can also make money doing "wash dry fold".

You are walking distance to grocery store, library, museum, boatyards, restaurants, seawall, piers, and across the street from a park.

Upsides: free rent, slow pace, easy on the nerves, this is the "shrimp capital of Texas". We spend a lot of time thinking of new ways to cook seafood.

Downsides: You will live in an efficiency apartment attached to a laundromat. At least three times a day someone will knock on the office window and request change or a refund. Occasionally asked to make change for a twenty, clean a lint filter, or other laundromatical "emergency". Some mechanical aptitude is helpful.
You need to have a source of income or savings as you would be responsible for your own food and entertainment.

NO BUMS, NO DRIFTERS< NO PETS, NO SMOKING, NO DRAMA; HAVE A LIFE AND A CAR PLUS A FEW BUCKS IN YOUR POCKET. BE NICE& BE REAL. We are not interested in being your last resort. we are interested in finding an interesting Vet / retiree / artist for a mutually enriching relationship. Available July 1st, Plenty of time to come check it out and hang out. See if you like the town between now and then . I would like to do a seamless transition so now is the time to come check it out.

Sorry, no smoking, no pets. i will not respond to replies of " call me". Please send us a note about your situation , 5 year plan , skill-set, hobbies, your plans to thrive in a small town, etc.
Thank you for your time and interest. I will not respond to replies of "call me" its not hard to give away a free apartment w all bills paid.
