The Basics:
Large, clean, pretty, single-family house in suburban, in safe, central Maryland neighborhood(in Kingsview Ridge Neighborhood) with 2 healthy cats and a healthy dog(standard poodle) and fill the outdoor bird feeders from the deck every few days. Our pet sitters can enjoy our beautiful house and the surrounding area activities as well as visit tourist attractions in Washington DC and Annapolis.

We're in the Washington, DC metro area about 45 minutes to an hour from central DC by car, train or subway with all the nation's capital has to offer. Ten minutes to I-270 or commuter train station, 15 minutes to nearest subway station (Gaithersburg) by car.

Our House and yard:
The house is very clean, fully furnished with clean beds, fresh bed linens and bath towels. Washer and dryer for your use. This is a non-smoking home with no odors or other unpleasant features. Ditto for the neighborhood.

There is wildlife from surrounding woods and state parks. You'll see deer and birds and hear or see other wildlife such as owls and hawks, foxes, raccoons and even some coyotes. Of course, they aren't dangerous to people or pets!


We need trustworthy, mature and kind pet lover(s) to live at our house, full-time and take care of our pets and leave the house neat and tidy. 

Pet care for two healthy 11- year old cats and one healthy 10-year old Standard Poodle. There is no litter box because the cats go outside. Two walks a day for dog (daytime walk is about a mile, nighttime walk is around our Court).  Our male cat, Ray, will accompany you at night!   You'll need to pick up after the dog on walks or in the yard. Feed dog once a day and cats twice a day plus treats for all. The pets should not be left alone for much over 6 hours on a regular basis. 

No gardening necessary but there is always plenty to do if you want to!

No mail while we're gone except the newspaper.  You'll have to put the trash and recyclables by the curb for collection. 

You'll need to have a car and we'll provide a garage space. This is a car-based neighborhood. You can walk to some places if you want but it's about 3 miles to closest stores and restaurants and about 5 miles to other amenities. Parks and woods are easily walkable.  The neighborhood is great for walking as well. 

Our house is Non-Smoking only. Responsible alcohol use is fine. Legal, responsible recreational drug use is ok.

About Us:
We are a retired couple (a teacher and an attorney) and we love to travel!  We're friendly, honest and easy-going people.
