Enjoy 2 weeks in the beautiful historic Gold Mining towns of Nevada City/Grass Valley CA. Look up our quaint little towns on the internet. There's lots to see and do!
Dates: February 10th-25th (this is a late request as our previous house sitter fell through)
We are an outdoorsy, progressive, positive-minded family who lives in a very comfortable two story home in Grass Valley CA. We are situated 1 hour from Lake Tahoe and 1 hour from the state capital Sacramento CA.
We are seeking an active female or couple who loves to run or hike a lot.
Responsibilities include caring for our 2 year old Golden Retriever (who loves to hike or run) and our two indoor/outdoor girl kitties. Our Golden Retriever is used to 1-2 hours a day of hiking or running. Our animals are healthy, very easy to care for, have well established routines and are very well behaved and fun to be with! Other responsibilities include watering the house plants.
We will review house rules, introduce you to the animals before we leave. We also have friendly and attentive neighbors should you need help. We will be available by /facetime during the entirety of our trip.
We do not permit our hosts to have their own house guests at any time during your stay.
Please note, this is not a paid position nor is there a car avaliable to use.
We've had great HouseCarer experiences so far and we want to have another great one!
We have a very comfortable, well-equipped 3bdrm/4bath home. We are very clean, tidy and appreciate our guests being the same. We are a 'no shoe' household. Your comfortable guest bedroom with en suite bathroom is on the main level and has a queen sized Tempurpedic bed. The house has high speed internet access, lots of natural light, a chef's kitchen and beautiful views of Nevada County mountains, and all the necessary amenities.
There is a plethora of fun things to see and do in our community... amazing trails, quaint shops, art studios, phenomenal restaurants, theater and music... It is a very cool area to play and explore. The local organic grocery store is less than a mile away. Our home is a 10 minute drive from both downtown Grass Valley or Nevada City.
We are at 2500' elevation which means we may on occasion get a few inches of snow, but it usually doesn't last for more than a day or two before melting. And our neighborhood streets are plowed promptly.
Excellent references are required. Government ID required. An existing background check would be a plus!
