I will be traveling from July 29th until August 25th and would like someone to look after my indoor cat as well as the house. Beautiful location right outside the small city of New Braunfels. Prefer a couple but a single person would work also. I would prefer someone who is handy around the house and doesn't mind looking after the outside plants a bit. It would be best to arrive at least one day prior to my leaving in order get to know about the house and the cat.
My home is fairly close to downtown New Braunfels 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. You will need a car to get around the area as there is no public transportation. Historic towns like Gruene are less than 10 minutes away with the Guadalupe River and Gruene Hall for music and the Grist Mill for dining, and San Antonio and Austin within a short driving distance, you can enjoy both city and country while you're here. The area is nice in the summer – in addition to the Guadalupe River, there is the Schlitterbahn Water Park, the small town of Wimberley and many activities going on in the area. There are also many things to do in both San Antonio and Austin which are only a short drive away. Perfect for a vacation to get to know the area or for someone who has friends and would like to spend some time visiting them.
I will also be going away for almost a week July 5-11 so if you wanted to come and stay the entire time that would be fine as well.
Looking for someone to housesit free of charge in exchange for having a place to do some visiting in the area. If you're interested, please contact me. Have had many housesitters in the past and it's been a great experience. Look forward to hearing from you.
