My husband and I are looking for a non-smoking couple to watch our 2 indoor cats and indoor small dog for 10 days, September 17-28. We live on a small lake in Jacksonville, which is in northeast Florida.
Our home is about 40 minutes from the Georgia border so trips to Okefenokee Swamp, Cumberland Island, St. Simon Island and the Jacksonville Zoo (incredible, btw) would be very doable. We have wonderful beaches within 30 minutes from our house (Atlantic, Neptune, Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, Vilano) and St. Augustine is a very fast 25 minute ride from our house. Because the animals require attention, being gone more than 4 hours just isn't possible. However, if you wish to sightsee, you are very welcomed to stay up to a week after we get home to visit the areas of interest.
Our subdivision is very safe and welcomes walkers with well maintained sidewalks; we have bikes and a paddle boat that you are welcomed to use as well. There is a great grocery store within 2 miles of our house, a top notch hospital, a preserve, restaurants...everything is very close.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
