House in Palau – Not for Rent


A few days ago I came across a pretty interesting property in Palau. Yes, Palau. Never heard of it ? Palau, officially the Republic of Palau is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean, some 500 miles east of the Philippines and 2,000 miles south of Tokyo. Having emerged from United Nations trusteeship in 1994, it is one of the world’s youngest and smallest nations.


Back to the found property on this amazing little germ of island, the story didn’t give me any clue why it was written in the first place. Nice description of the house, when and how it was built , how you get there and a convincing invitation to ‘friends’ wishing to visit. – But it was not for rent.


By now I was so intrigued by the description and the images that I was ready to become the latest ‘Facebook friend’ of Alex & Sarah just to be able to spend my next vacation in Micronesia.


Palau will offer me the world’s most beautiful
tropical paradise. Famous for its diving, Palau is rated as one of the world’s best diving destinations by scuba aficionados. And why not…Palau has unspoiled reefs, caves, and walls with the most amazing array of marine life you can ever imagine. Video here.

But now comes the best part of the article….


” Information about the caretaker position can be found at the bottom
of this page.” Here we go. Check it out for yourself. Sounds like a
perfect find and let me know if you ever made it there.

Don’t worry that it might be a bit remote. Plenty of new friends will be waiting for you to become your new companion.

    ‘Fiji Me’ it’s a way of making your paradise dreams come true. In a world of over 333 islands and almost every conceivable activity to choose from, you can be assured of one thing when you arrive in our pleasant South Pacific destination… that you will experience memorable days and nights that will last a lifetime.
    Here in Fiji you can say, ‘Thrill Me’ and then choose to hike mountain trails, raft white waters, or speed across and above the ocean surf. You might also request, ‘Romance Me’ and engage in every single type of romantic fantasy come true that your mind can possible dream up. You may hear our waters siren to you and say, ‘Dive Me’ and we can take you down and along some of the most beautiful and colorful soft coral in the world. Fiji may call out for you to ‘Explore Me’ when you can don your back pack and head across a country chock full of adventures and ‘adventurers’. Mingle with locals and you feel the need to say ‘Bula Me’ and experience all the culture, traditions and legends of a once fierce but now fiercely happy and humble people. ‘Fiji Me’…it’s everything you want it to be.
