What could be better than that?  

We are looking for a non-smoking couple or single to stay with our home and two cats for  3 weeks in February/March 2020. 

We are seeking some one trustworthy and honest, willing to abide by our rules such as keeping the cats indoors and not bringing strangers to the house.  

Some one with confidence to handle any minor home maintaince (pool care a plus) or the ingenuity to find a solution if it arises.  Familiarity with Spanish is not absoultly required but can be helpful as is any other foreign house sitting experience.   

Atenas is a sleepy little coffee farming community
known for its beauty, wonderful weather, tranquility, and warm, endearing people. Our home is in a nice Tico neighborhood, with friendly neighbors, and modern amenities - hot water, pool, internet wi-fi, cable, etc.  

We are close to the center of town and anything you may require. All of the important locations: banks, groceries, restaurants, clinic, pharmacies, etc.  are  an easy walking distance away.   Buses and Taxies are cheap and plentiful, and we do have a standard 4x4 car in case of emergency. 

Other than a few day trips to "the city" (San Jose) the ideal candidate should be content to hang around Atenas and wander the closer surrounding areas.  The Handiman and House keeper come on Tuesdays for whom you will need to supervise and to make lunch.   This is during the dry season so you will also need to water daily.

Miles and Chunche are generally friendly and outgoing (when they're not sleeping). Typically Chunche likes his loves after breakfast and before dinner and Miles before breakfast and after dinner.  So a willingness to spend a little "lap time" is a priority for me.
