I will be traveling to various locations during the summer and preferably looking for either a couple or a single person to be here during that entire period. However, I am willing to break this into various house sits. Right now I'm looking specifically for someone to be here May 24th till June 12th. I go up to a local music festival at this time but come back for a few days mid-week. If you would prefer to stay longer, that would be fine. I generally travel a lot during the summer so it would be great if you were looking for a summer housesit. The way the home is set up my bedroom is on one side of the house and you would stay is on the other side so that shouldn't be a problem. Or, if this doesn't work, I would consider different people here for part of the time. 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. 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 as there is the Guadalupe River and Schlitterbahn and other water activites. There are also many things to do in both San Antonio and Austin during that time.
Prefer a couple but a single person would work also. I have two cats (one indoor and one basically outdoor). The house is a good size and as I mentioned, you would have your own area with bedroom and bath. You will need a car to get around the area. I would prefer someone who is handy around the house and doesn't mind looking after the plants outside.
As I mentioned, timing is basically May 24-June 12 (off and on); then a few more weeks in June; some weeks in July and the first three weeks in August. Back permanently around August 25th since I start teaching August 28th.
If this seems like something that might work for you, get in touch and we'll see what can be worked out.
Looking for someone to housesit free of charge in exchange for having a place to do some visiting in the area - Gruene, New Braunfels, San Antonio and Austin are all nice to visit. If you're interested, please contact me and we can discuss more details.
