From: May 15,23  
To:      Jul 7,23
Days:  54, Medium Term Approximate dates

We are looking for house, dog and BnB sitters for 7weeks starting approximately May 15. We haven't booked yet so are flexible on exact dates.

We have a 2 storey house on 2.5 acres of seaside land on the island of Langkawi in Malaysia. The house is very open plan so cannot be left unattended for long periods of time. We're looking for a non-smoking couple who could look after the house, garden and 2 dogs. We will supply a car and a cleaner for the house. Garden work includes leaf collection, lawn mowing, picking up fallen branches and palm fronds.  The dogs are fed and walked twice a day.

The house has two bedrooms and a ground floor pool which is contained under the roof. It's more a chilling out pool than a swimming pool but does have an infinity edge facing the sea. It's a fusion Malay-western design so has a concrete main floor but wooden upper floor with coloured glass windows. There are beautiful views of the Andaman sea and good breezes to keep the house cool. We can send pictures if you are interested.

The gardening mostly consists of leaf gathering, composting, lawn mowing and some watering. If it rains there’s very little watering.  It is a large property though so you should be prepared to do something every day in the garden.

we have 2 dogs, HobNob, who is 5 and a medium sized dog and BD who is a small younger (about 1) rescue dog. We walk them twice a days and do some ball throwing inbetween.

There are many activities in Langakawi- golf, kayak, bicycle, beach or swimming -whatever interests you. The island is not big but has excellent infrastructure-good roads, mains water, good electrical service, internet. There's a well-developed tourist area with many excellent restaurants. Certainly there's enough to keep you busy!

Hope to hear from you soon.

Oh-a word about us- D is a retired Royal Navy Officer and L is a retired lawyer. We originally sailed into Langkawi on our catamaran but liked it so much we bought some land a built a house.

David and Laurie are wonderful hosts/home owners, they made our transition into looking after their home and pets very easy. They were very thorough in their instructions and spent a lot of time showing us around thier island paradise. They introduced us to their friends and neighbours.

The hosue is beautiful with a pool siutated right in the middle. We used the pool daily as it was very hot and it was easy to maintain. The home is open and has a well apointed kitchen. Though we did not cook very often as the restaurants and food stalls were in abundance in the area. 

The property is very large, we spent a good many hours picking up tree fall, raking leaves and mowing the grass. This was enjoyable as it gave us something to do. 

The pets were delightful. BD, girl, very friendly and loves everyone and HobNob, boy, also friendly though could be unpredictable at times. We became good friends and they were no trouble at all.

David and Laurie left us with a car and electric bikes which we appreciated so much. They were available for answering questions at any time.

I recommend this house sit, we will definately like to be considered to do it again in the future.

The house is a unique living space situated right on the ocean for lovely morning and evening walks with the two dogs. There is daily work that needs to be done to keep the yard clear of debris due to rain and wind. There is a house pool that provdes relief from the heat and humidity. Like Hawaii it can rain and then the sun comes out. The owners communicate well during their absence. The dogs are fun to walk. Good excerise for for the dogs and us! Located very close to town and 20 minutes from Kuah, the largest city on the Island.
