Looking for a house-sitter to watch our lovely Hyde Park Chicago townhouse and sweet Husky mix dog.
We will be traveling from December 19 - January 23 of this year. Although our travel dates are fixed, we can make alternate arrangements for pet care if you need to be away for a few days during this period.
We live in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. We are near to restaurants, a grocery store and pharmacy, and public transportation, and close to the University of Chicago. There's a great French bakery a block away, and the neighborhood is safe.
Our townhouse has four bedrooms plus a finished basement (where our television and Netflix setup live). There are wood floors and modern kitchen with new appliances (including dishwasher). We have a small private backyard in addition to a large shared backyard/courtyard.
Our dog is Leah, a 12-year old Husky/Shepherd mix. She's getting on in years, and can only manage very short walks now, maybe as far as around the block. Around the house she is quiet and calm, a joy to be around.
We've had great experiences in the past with sitters from Housecarers. Because we travel regularly, we're especially happy when we find folks who have ties to the area and might be interested in establishing an ongoing relationship. But we're perfectly happy to set up one-off arrangements, too!
Please if you have any questions. I hope to hear from you soon!
