We are looking for a house sitter(s) for 10 days/9 nights for our 2 bedroom, 2 bath California-style home in historic West Oakland---currently the hottest real estate market in the country. 2 short blocks from BART trains, and 4 blocks from freeways connecting to Berkeley, San Francisco and Marin. Several trendy neighborhood eateries, a lively art scene and clubs for every taste call Oakland home. A short 6 minute drive to Jack London Square's movie theaters, restaurants, and kayak entrances to the bay as well as ferries to SF. Our home and garden are sunny and bright and newly remodeled. Our dogs are both rescue animals; one is very mellow and obedient, the other, being very new to our home, is a little more high energy. Both are very sweet and affectionate. A neighbor will help walk the dogs, but we'd like a responsible person who can handle two dogs will feed them and regulate their outside time on our property.
We need our mail to be taken in, outdoor plants watered and home occupied at night/slept in. We have a laundry room, two bedrooms, and a small detached guest room.
