I am searching for a non smoking MATURE COUPLE (singles don't apply I won't respond) with your own transportation for my easy to take care for home on our property in Sonoma County/Cloverdale 15 minutes North of Healdsburg. I have an outside Cattery, one Australian Shepard dog (four years old), one bird cage with one bird (of course) and 10 chickens and a garden. My dog requires companionship and I don't want her locked away in her kennel. She does weigh 72 lbs. so a strong arm is required. Alot of the house is set up for little daily animal feeding (large canisters of food and water) . You can enjoy the bounty of the eggs from the chickens. Other than the minimal chores there will be alot of time to spare in visiting the local wineries, etc. There is a bbq. There is one King Bed or Queen sized beds available to you. A shower but no bathtub. High speed internet is in the home. SORRY NO SMOKING IN THE HOME. We would want to meet a day before we leave to go over the house duties. You may be required to forward mail to us while away. If you can use a scanner that would be a plus. Ask questions if you have them. YOU CANNOT BRING YOUR OWN ANIMALS EITHER.
