I live in New Braunfels which I think is a wonderful small city. We have the largest waterpark in the U.S. right here, along with tubing in the rivers and swimming in local lakes such as Canyon Lake. And the weather in May is usually great. Plus there's an amazing number of places to go out to eat and listen to music. Close by are both San Antonio with the wonderful Riverwalk and Austin with its music scene. Plenty of places to go kayaking at that time of year, both here in town and also some wonderful moonlight kayaking trips you can take in Austin. I did one last May on the night of a full moon and it was just wonderful!

I'm looking for a couple (or possibly an individual) who would be available for about three weeks to stay at my home and take care of my dog (Emmy) and cat (Trip). Emmy is an older dog who just needs you to love her and take her out a few times a day and Trip is a chill, 3-legged cat who goes out in the morning and needs to come in before dark. Both animals are real easy. In May there are a lot of events going on all over the area. New Braunfels is near rivers and lakes, and also within an easy drive of both San Antonio and Austin. 

My home is fairly close to downtown New Braunfels (but not close enough to walk so you'd need a car) but sits on 6 wooded acres so you feel like you are really in the country. The house is a good size and you would have your own area with bedroom and bath. The two guest bedrooms are on one side of the house with its own bath, and at the other end of the house from the master bedroom. You will need a car to get around the area as there is no public transportation.  New Braunfels has some great tubing and kayaking. Historic towns like Gruene are less than 10 minutes away with the Guadalupe River, Gruene Hall with free music just about everyday and the Grist Mill for dining, as well as historic cities such as Fredericksburg and Wimberley. San Antonio and Austin are a short driving distance so you can enjoy both city and country while you're here.This would be perfect for a couple who want to get to know the area or for someone who has friends and would like to spend time visiting them. The weather recently has actually been fantastic!

I'm also looking for someone to be at the house from about July 6th through mid-September. If you were interested in both sits, that would even be better since it would be easier on the animals. You could go off and do a little investigating in the Texas Hill country in June - or you're welcome to stay here since the house really has different living areas. Plus I have a place in Austin so I come and go a lot.

If you're interested, please contact me asap. Have had many housesitters in the past and it's been a great experience. Look forward to hearing from you.

Sitting for Elaine, Emmy and Trip was one of the nicest sits we have had.  Elaine is super nice, generous and thoughtful.  Emmy, her dog, is the sweetest girl who loves everyone. Trip, the cat is pretty reserved but slowly warmed up to us and finally came to our bed to sleep?.  Her house is in a beautiful woods, is large and has everything you need and more for a great stay.  We hope to sit for her again some day
