We are looking for a house-sitter to take care of our home and our pets which include 3 dogs and 1 cat. The time period would be from December 23 until January 01. We are centrally located in the lovely town of Ladysmith, BC, on Vancouver Island. There are many lovely beaches in the area, wonderful hiking trails which lead to 2 beautiful lakes. We are a 45 minute drive to Victoria if you wish to see that beautiful city and all it has to offer. Our pet's require very little exercise and are happy to have your company. Ladysmith has some wonderful shops including a terrific bakery where you can sit and enjoy a sweet treat and watch the world go by. A very friendly community. Our house is clean,comfortable and attractive with two gas fireplaces to cozy up to. We have a beautiful private back yard with 2 ponds and a waterfall which if you enjoy bird-watching is an ideal spot. Our pets do require some attention and are happy most days to be able to run around our back yard and spend time with you in the house. If you were to walk them down to the park and throw the ball for them they would be over the moon happy, but for the short visit you would have with them they would be fine if you couldn't do this every day.
