Update: we are talking seriously to a candidate about this position.
We are in Seaford, Virginia, which is in York County near Williamsburg and Newport News. Our house is in a lovely neighborhood and has a fair amount of landscaping. We're looking for someone (for six months beginning in August to live in the house, care for and love our three indoor cats, tend to the lawn and landscaping, and keep it reasonably clean. We have a deck and an inground pool, which can be left uncovered if you want to use and care for it.
We will want reliable, stable non-smokers. Socializing in the house is fine-- it's great for entertaining. Just no rowdy parties or loud music that would attract our neighbors' attention, and certainly no illegal activities. We're willing to move furniture within the house, and there is plenty of storage. We anticipate the house-sitter(s) will live rent-free. We can talk about other $$ considerations, like utilities etc.
It's a large, beautiful home, and we hope to find the right people for a mutually beneficial arrangement.
Thanks for reading our ad. We hope to hear from you.
