We are looking for a housecarer for 5 - 6 days in mid to late June given the improving Pandemic, we are still confirming timing for a trip to Tofino/Vancouver Island). The house sit would be for our cats Julia and Martine and our heritage home in the Queens Park neighbourhood of New Westminster. Our home has a heritage feel, but is well maintained and updated. Your sleep options include a charming attic bedroom with king sized bed or guest bedrooms in the finished basement (cooler on hot evenings). There is a fenced backyard with a beautifully manicured garden, complete with two patios and a propane barbecue. Our cozy front porch is a perfect spot for a glass of wine at the end of the day.
Julia and Martine are almost 2 year old sisters, inside cats, very affectionate lap cats in good health!
New Westminster is BC's first capital city. We are a 15 minute walk downhill to the skytrain, which can have you in downtown Vancouver in less than 30 minutes. Our main street (6th Avenue) is a five minute walk away, and has a public library, grocery stores, shops, and restaurants, as well as buses that also go to/from the skytrain station (in case you don't want to walk).
Your house stay may involve some quick lawn mowing with the cordless rechargeable mower (not much lawn) and plant watering inside and out.
