We are looking for a couple to house sit for four and a half weeks, beginning and ending We would like non-smokers who are tidy. We expect to exchange service for living space.
Our house sitters will be able to enjoy city living. Our home is in a quiet urban neighborhood in Baltimore, but the big city is all around us.
We are very near shops, restaurants, theaters, concert arenas and museums as well as the Inner Harbor area, all of which is walkable. There are also some great neighborhoods in Baltimore with fun personalities and their own assortment of activities like festivals and farmers markets. There is a lot going on in Baltimore year 'round and there is free bus transportation all over the downtown area. Baltimore was #15 on the New York Times' "Best Places to Visit in 2018" list.
A 40 minute train ride (you can walk to the train station) takes you to Washington, DC and all it has to offer. The MARC train tickets are about $3.00 each way.
The primary job of our house sitters will be to care for our little dog while we are away. She is an 8 year old poodle/papillion mix, weighing in at 10 pounds. She gets 3 walks, 2 meals and lots of love each day. We also need some care for house plants.
We have a housekeeper who will come every two weeks, so cleaning is not necessary, though we expect the house to be well respected.
If a few weeks of living the urban life appeals to you, we'd love to talk with you about our gig.
