Hello! Are you interested in spending your 2019 summer housesitting in Arizona's beautiful Sky Islands?

      You want a quiet place to explore, reflect, write, grow, a place for your consciousness to creatively consider possibilities--meanwhile we are looking for a housesitter for our rural SE Arizona home from June 20 through October 5--a long sit for some folks, just right for others. Are you interested?

     Our small, simple custom log home on 80 acres is in the Sky Islands of SE Arizona, and is managed as a wildlife preserve. Perfect for the person who enjoys peace, wildlife and solitude.  A bird watcher's paradise--140 species observed, so far!

   Responsibilities may possibly include watering plants and trees indoors and out, keeping water pans filled for birds and wildlife (mule deer, bobcats, coyotes, gray fox,  javelina, ring tailed cats and more), and any chores that may be necessitated by possible monsoons. Also picking up the mail at least once a week. Some fix-it or handyperson skills might be helpful.

     A neat and tidy single individual, or couple, with no pets or children is preferred. This situation is ideal for the explorer, artist, writer, meditator. 

     Electricity and a good well are on the property. There is no TV, or Internet except what is available from your own Verizon-compatible device--a Verizon tower is on the mountain behind the house, so there is excellent service. A television is available for watching DVDs. A vehicle is provided for local use--our road requires a high clearance vehicle, but not usually  4 x 4.

     Local attractions: wildlife, birds, tranquility. Douglas is 17 miles away, a Mexican border town with shopping and medical services. The old mining town of Bisbee is 40 miles away with interesting culture and arts. Tucson is about 140 miles and provides nearest air service. Phoenix is about 250 miles.

      There is a small dirt airstrip on the property. There is also a small rustic apartment separate from the house as well as a shop and hangar.

     Our target dates are June 20 through October 5, 2019.  We are most interested in someone who could sit the entire 3+ month time. We would really like to find a person(s) who would be able to stay the entire time for several years in a row as we anticipate traveling within a similar time frame in 2020 and 2021.

    Are you the right one for this housesit? Contact us through this site to describe why you'd like to stay here! Peaceful adventure awaits you!
