We are going to New Zealand Oct 10 - Jan 6. We would like to have someone stay in our house to care for our two dogs (40 lb and 70 lb mutts), our chickens, turkey and the house and yard. Dogs need daily walks or tennis ball throws in the back yard, and love. Chickens are pretty easy. Turkeys are liking to roost out of the pen, and may need to be chased back into the pen for food and water. Fish tank, too! House is 5 bed - we the downstairs master with an exterior door. This would either be yours, or we could negotiate you running this space for a share of the profits. Then you'd sleep in the upstairs master. Yard and garden will be in low maintenance, winter mode. Flagstaff is a great mountain town by itself but also is only 70 miles from the Grand Canyon, 35 miles from Sedona and close to a variety of great canyons, monuments and other sites to visit. We have a ski mountain 10 miles away that usually is open by Thanksgiving. Our house is 1.5 miles from downtown, with the city bike path to downtown (or the mtn going the other way), just out the back gate (bikes in garage). Great neighbors - we often host the block happy hour. Women's March and other activist signs stored in closet ;). Thanks for looking.
