House/Petsitter needed for approximately 1 month, 1 week from September 7 - October 12, 2021.
House/Pet-sitter needed for townhouse for approximately 1 month, 1 week while owner is out of the country. My regular housesitter has a previous commitment the first week so is unavailable. If a prospective sitter can only do a single week, the period of September 7-13 would also be a possibility.
The townhouse is located in Rockville, MD about 12 miles from Washington, DC. It is near public transportation (bus, Metro), and close to shops, restaurants, etc., and while the neighborhood is quiet, it is situated by major arteries. Easy access to the Nation's capital's many cultural activities.
The townhouse consists of 3 floors--kitchen/dining room/living room downstairs; 3 bedrooms (1 used for storage) upstairs; laundry and multi-purpose room in walk-out basement, and wrap around deck. Includes 2 bathrooms; 2 half-bathrooms and 2 working fireplaces. Fios TV/Internet/wireless access package. There is 1 assigned parking space and additional parking available. It is ideal for a single person or a couple. More photos upon request.
RESPONSIBILITIES: In addition to house-sitting, the person would be responsible for taking care of two dachshunds, walking them regularly [2x day around the block], and mowing the grass if needed [usually every 2 weeks in the late summer/fall].
REQUIREMENTS: Experience with dogs, especially rescued dogs and/or dachshunds a plus. House-sitting experience with good references required. Familiarity with the Washington, DC area helpful.
