Jan and I will be RV'ing for aproximately 90 days beginning on or before May 27th, and returning on or about September 1, 2020.
We would like to invite a Non smoking couple to care for 2 of our dogs and our home. The dates are somewhat flexible if needed.
We live on a very nice and quiet, rural 1/2 acre property just a couple of miles from I-75, in the Southeast area of Punta Gorda, FL. The neighborhood is sparsely populated and mostly forrested.
Our property is fenced, and has many large trees, and 1/4 acre lawn area. Some of the landscaping is natural.
We have 4 small dogs, 2 Shih-Tzu's, a Toy Fox Terrier, and a Pomeranian. Only 2 will need to be cared for, as the other 2 will travel with us. (We haven't decided which 2 will travel, and which 2 will remain home.)
They are all "Teddy Bear" dogs that are loving and cuddly, and healthy. Since the property is fenced, you can let them go outside to potty and play. They should be walked at least once daily, as they will need to get some daily exercise outside.
We would like you to stay at our home and feed and care for the dogs. Plus do simple maintenance, which consists of checking/adding chemicals and occasional brushing of the spa. We will provide all chemicals, and test strips for the spa. Lawn mowiing, ocassional weed wacking, weed pulling, etc. is also requested. We have a riding mower and a walk behind mower for your use. I estimate this work to take about 2-3 hours per week.
Normal care and cleaning of the interior of the home would also be appreciated.
The house is an 8 year old, 3 Bedroom 1,400 Sq Ft concrete home that was totally renovated last year, with a new kitchen and all new baths. The counter and vanity tops are all granite, and appliances are stainless steel.
Outdoor living areas feature a new 300 Sq Ft screened Lanai in the rear with a paver deck area, and a seperate heated therapy spa.
An outdoor dining area, a fire pit, beautiful shade trees, mostly tile floors, 10' ceilings with crown mouldings, and 2 full bathrooms complete the home. The main entry features an additional screened front porch area and patio.
A detached 20' x 51' fortefied RV garage, is designed and engineered for 165 mph winds. It has 50 amp electric hook ups inside so you can park your car or RV inside.
Water is provided by an amazing Whole house Reverse Osmosis water purification system. You have wonderfull "bottled water" quality at every faucet.
Century Link Internet service is also provided, and we use cell s for tele service.
Ft. Myers Beaches, and Sanibel Island are about 45 minutes drive, the Port Charlotte county beach is about 25 minutes. Dozens of tourist attractions such as the Edison and Ford Estates, movie theatres, State and County Parks, Bike trails, and museums, malls, etc. are located nearby.
Major shopping areas, Wal Mart, Target, Home Depot, Lowes, Walgreens, JC Penny, Sears, Bealls, the Edison Mall, etc., and many restaurants are between minutes away.
We are willing to provide all pet food and any needed vet care for the dogs, and pay all utilities.
You would need to provide your own car/transportation. We do have indoor RV hook ups if you drive a motorhome.
The home is served by over the air TV service, as well as High Speed Internet with Wi- Fi throughout the house.
Regular contact with us by text, , and/or tele would be important and appreciated.
Please me to let us know if you are interested.
Gary and Jan
