Looking for a housesitter that does not require a gorgeous or spectacular home, and wouldn't mind leaving a couple of untidy rooms closed off, and a few papers on counters, etc. House has been described as "clean but cluttered." Kitchen is basic, lacks microwave and dishwasher, but has plenty of good pots, pans, and implements.  Smart TV/DVD, stereo with eclectic music collection in old and new media. Reliable internet with router/WiFi; bring your own laptop/tablet. Your 2nd-floor small bedroom would be clean with several drawers, bookshelves and some closet space emptied. I can give you up-to date photos so you can decide. Smallish, snug, 16-year-old home with close neighbors, walking distance to village. Ferry ride, 80 miles north of Seattle.

In exchange you'd get a home base for what is usually a beautiful early, cool fall, on a  gorgeous island with many parks and hiking trails, kayaking possibilities, some nice cafes and restaurants, some musical and other entertainment, food co-op and good grocery & specialty food stores, yoga/fitness classes, massage, great lbrary, and much more.

 Having your own transportation would be best, not much public transport here. Perfect for a writer wanting a retreat, or traveler wanting to explore the beautiful San Juan Islands. Single person preferred.
