I am looking for a mature non-smoker, no pets who is a responsible,clean housesitter to look after our 2 bedroom + office house next winter. We will be leaving on Dec. 28, 2020-April and we need someone to shovel the walkway if it snows, water the plants, and collect our mail. We also need someone to drip two of the taps when it gets below -13. Since it is a longer period we would like the person who housesits to pay for utilities/cable which averages $450/month.
We live a 10 minute subway ride from downtown Toronto and are a 7 minute walk to the subway.
We are a 5 minute walk to the main streets Danforth and Donlands where you can find wonderful Greek, Italian, Thai and Japanese restaurants as well as many shops. It is a wonderful cultural city where you can see the National Ballet, hear the symphony and watch a diversity of plays which you can see inexpensively if you go to pay what you can nights. The Art Gallery of Ontario and the Royal Ontario Museum are both first class museums and have recently undergone interesting renovations.
We have hi-speed unlimited internet access and a hi-def 46 inch television with most channels including Netflix. Our very clean house is designed to resemble a Mediterranean home with a warm wood burning fireplace, open concept living area and hardwood floors.
