    Looking for a house sitter to take care of my property and occupy my house while I am away. The house sit does not require any pet care. Instead the house sitter will be expected to do the routine mainteance of my yard, garden, flower beds and orchard as well as normal house cleaning.  The house sitter must be able to operate a riding lawn mower (tractor style) and do basic drip irrigation maintenance. I will provide the training for both.The house sitter will need to have their own vehicle.  The home is a well maintained two story 1800 sq ft  home built in the last 30 years. Home has all the normal amenities, dishwasher, washer , dryer, internet, etc.. There is also a new ductless heat/cooling unit to provide both heat and air conditioning. The house has a master suite on the main floor as well as upstairs bathroom and bedrooms. There is also a 20x12 ft sq ft covered outdoor barbecue area complete with an outdoor sink, barbecue and dining table area immediately off the breezeway.   The home sits on 5 acres on a private road in a country setting zoned 1 home/5 acres. Despite the rural setting the home is located within 3-4 miles of a major shopping area(Costco, Home Depot, Winco,etc.).   The garden and greenhouse are on a timed irrigation system. Approxiamately 80% of the fruiting plants and flowers in the yard are also on timed watering systems.   Whomever stays here must have yard and gardening skills.  On the bright side you can expect to eat fresh cherries, blueberries, raspberries, tayberries, goumis, lettuce, etc. during your stay.  The home is located in Northern Puget Sound 25 miles south of the Canadian border. Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands as well as Mount Baker are all within a one to one half hour drive. This is truely a beautiful area.
