Love, patience, dedication is what I am looking for!
I am looking for mature, responsible, happy, flexible, and responsive people, for real dog lovers who go out of their way to make dogs happy, walk them twice a day, cuddle with them, and live w i t h them, not separate from them!
To respect their distinct individualities would not be alien to you, but a joy.....
My present housesitters of 9 months (on and off) found a house and want to move surprisingly fast, so this position can be filled within a few days!
I would be immensely happy to find sitters who are down-to-earth, hands-on, and used to (or want to experience) a rustic setting.
If you would be ready to undertake small and bigger tasks, such as painting the exteriors of the small cottage, apply linseed oil to the window frames and such things......that would be great!
Love, feed and walk my four dogs.
Water the garden square meters, 4 sprinklers fitted - need to be moved around), mow the lawn regularly, weeding, and in general to keep the garden in an enjoyable state!
Keep the house and surroundings clean and tidy.
Hill- and river view, at the very end of the 140-houses- -village. Quit, green, fields adjoining the property.
There is also an additional wooden house with an outdoor bathroom in the same property, so there would be space for the occasional family/friends visit.
The village consists of 140 houses and a bar close by (to socialize, and hear the latest gossip), no industry whatsoever, cows and goats just over the wall, river view…… hills you can see….. sunrise from your bedroom- and bathroom window, and sunset point just round the corner.
Veterinarians come to the house, if called; there is also an animal clinic not too far away.
Milk is delivered to your doorstep in the early morning, fresh bread you get from the bakery just across the road. Shops are in the next village, the very basics you get here in the village.
Please no smoking in the houses, and no drugs.
Mine is not a place to party but to enjoy nature and silence. 14 kilometers from the nearest beach.
No TV. Many DVDs arfe available for your use. Fast Internet connection you can get via hotspot of your smart , mobile connections are easily available, and very cheap.
If you have an international/Indian driving license, you are welcome to use my scooter.
There are 4 dogs to be taken care off. They have to be walked twice a day (morning 6.30 am, evening 5 pm), all on a leash, goat hunters and piglet chasers!
They are very loving and lovable dogs, and need every day many doses of affection.
There is a fence around my garden of nearly 2000 square meters (which has to be checked from time to time, if still safe, or if a tunnel has been dug....) so that the dogs can roam freely during the day.
Dogs food preparation is a task..... they do not like tins and packet food.
Chicken liver/gizzard, rice/noodles, lentils, curd, and vegetables is the daily menu.
And yes keep the house clean and tidy. This would mean to also move furniture once in a while .......
Small repairs would have to be undertaken by you......the reason being that it is very hard to get electricians/plumbers etc. in this part of the world. But yes, in emergency cases you may be able to persuade somebody to appear.
I am interested in long term housesitters.....the transition is sometimes a bit difficult.....
But please do write to me also - if you think you are the right match - when you are available only for a shorter period of time.
More photos are available....please write to me!
