We need a dog-loving, non-smoking, fragrance-free, neat and clean person or couple who will enjoy our home, beautiful Northern New Mexico, the incredible local culture, the fabulous out-of-doors, and all the charms of Santa fe -- the City Different. March 28-April 14, 2019
Our little Yorkie and one bigger heeler mix dog need a dog-loving companion while we are gone. I work from home and they are used to having me here with them. Our many previous Housecarers have all enjoyed our dogs. Cuddles, daily walks and talks -- and they will love you back.
We know you'll want to explore Santa Fe, but we also want someone who will come and go rather than be gone all day every day. We hope you'll enjoy reading on the deck and soaking in the hot tub as much as you'll enjoy the million things to do in town and in the great outdoors. Folks who love to hike have a great time on all the Santa Fe trails with our well-behaved heeler. He needs to get exercise, so if you like to get out on the trails, this is a good match! There is a dog door and a big enclosed back yard, so they can come in and out as they please while you are out and about.
We have a comfortable home with a hot tub, big screen tv, nice kitchen and all the amenities of a well-kept home. There is a queen sized bed and bathroom in the guest room. (Second guest room has a full-sized bed.) We live not far from the Plaza, the heart of town, in a safe and friendly neighborhood on a quiet street. The house is pretty easy, just needing the everyday care you would afford your own home. Plants will be sprouting and will need watering.
There are so many things to see and do within our small interesting city. Santa Fe is an amazing place that embodies a rich history, melding Hispanic, Anglo and Native American cultures whose influences are apparent in everything from the architecture, the food, the art and on -- all under sunny blue skies an average of 283 days a year. Santa Fe is seated at 7,000 feet with mountains all around. April will be dry with an average high of 65 degrees. Nights in the high desert can get down to 32 with clear and starry skies. Expect clean air and sunshine!
Flights are mostly into Albuquerque (one hour away), but there are limited flights that bring you right into Santa Fe and a short drive to our home. Better yet, drive so you'll have your car.
