Responsible individual or couple wanted to take care of our home (lovely one-story, two bedroom, craftsman cottage built in in historic Hillsborough, NC (near Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh), water house plants, pick up mail, and take care of our pets (one small dog, one cat, three chickens, and beta fish) while we're traveling from May 23 through June 7, 2018 (would prefer for you to arrive on May 21 or 22 and leave June 8 since we have late flight back on June 7).
Hillsborough is a lovely small town with a great grocery co-op, local wine store, several great restaurants, loads of historic buildings (dating back to late 1700s and early 1800s), a local radio station, coffee shop, local brewery, and a great trail along the Eno River (the River Walk) just a few blocks from our home. You'll love it!!!
We've engaged housesitters through for the past ten years and both we and the folks who have cared for our home and animals while we've been away have really enjoyed the experience. Several housesitters have come back for a "repeat engagement" and have become good friends.
Our home is your home while we're away. We'll leave you detailed info about house and animals but won't try to look over your shoulder or second guess. Since you give us references, we'll be glad to give you some references from previous housesitters as well. We look forward to hearing from you!!!
