I am looking for a single person or couple (without pets of their own) to take care of my home and two small dogs from May 4-June 1 while I go to the US. These days are firm and give me several days to orient you before I leave May 6. I return early morning June 1 and you can leave that same day.
I live on the north shore of Lake Chapala, Jalisco, about one hour outside of Guadalajara. The Guadalajara international airport is about 40 minutes from my home.
My home is just outside the town of Chapala, about 4 miles east of the town of Ajijic. Lake Chapala is home to a large community of Americans living outside of the United States. In addition there are many Canadians and Europeans who either live here full-time or just during the winter. Lake Chapala is considered to have one of the most perfect climates in the world. Through May to about mid-June we experience thr hottest time of the year, preceding the start of rainy season.
I have a comfortable home with front and back yards for the dogs and a covered patio in the back. There is maid and gardener service twice a week. My home has satellite TV, tele service, and high speed wireless internet. There is a washer/dryer, though no dishwasher. The property is surrounded by a high wall and is quite secure. There is free long distance to the US and Canada as well as long distance within Mexico. I will pay the maid and gardener as well as all utilities. You would be responsible for your own food.
My car will not be available for your use. If you were to drive down there is room to park your vehicle in my gated driveway/carport. I live one easily walkable block off the main highway where busses run in both directions every 15 minutes. There is also taxi service available by calling.
I am looking for someone who would take good care of my home and dogs. I do not expect a house sitter to stay at home all the time, however I would also not expect a house sitter to be gone for too many hours and leave the dogs alone. This is an opportunity for the right person to get out of the cold and spend some time in lovely, warm Mexico. If you are that person, and have good references from past housesitting jobs, please contact me.
