We need a house & pet-sitter for our home in a lovely town in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. Located in a Tico neighborhood, we are safely surrounded by a wall & gate. The house has internet access with wifi, a landline tele . Since the yard is completely enclosed , the dogs have outside access & do not require regular walks (unless the sitter wants to). Our home is approximately a half-hour walk from downtown or there are taxis available everywhere. Our town is about an hour away from the Pacific & public buses are available to ride inexpensively to larger cities nearby. The animals can safely be left inside for a day if the sitter wants to explore the area. There is a sizable ex-pat community here & there's a US-style restaurant that's a meeting place for information & for those wishing to contact other English-speakers.
April is at the end of the dry season, & is considered "summer" here. Every day will be sunny & warm, with little humidity. There will be minimal yardwork required, since little to no rain has fallen for the past few months..
We have 4 dogs, 1 cat, & an aquarium with assorted fish.
Our preference is for the house sitter to arrive a couple days early, to meet the animals, see their routine, & to acquaint themselves with the local town & area.
