We are looking for mature, responsible, trustworthy non-smoking individual / couple to house sit while we are away for the summer. We will be away from approx. May long weekend through to mid-September.
Ideally, we would like one sitter / couple for the entire period; however, due to the length of the sit we would consider splitting the period between different sitters / couples
The fur kids will be coming with us so there will be NO pets in residence.
We would like a sitter or sitters who will look after our house and yard in our absence. Nothing too onerous or time consuming, i.e. water a few house plants and small outside gardens, mow lawn as needed, put out garbage / recycle / green bins, collect mail, etc. You only need to treat the home as you would your own and keep things in the same condition as on your arrival.
Due to the length of sit, we'll want to keep in regular contact with sitter. That way we can ensure bills are paid, any issues identified are addressed, etc.
Our house is approx 2000 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. It is on a corner lot in a quiet, middle class neighborhood in NW Calgary with great neighbors. We have the typical amenities / conveniences such as AC, WIFI, cable TV, fenced yard, etc.
You can find almost anything you need within a 3 miles radius of the house, i.e. movie theatre, hardware stores, grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. There are walking and biking trails you can access across the road from the house and very good transit links with a bus stop only a 5-minute walk away. Our location also provides easy access to the airport and major highways.
There’s lots to see and do in and around Calgary e for the summer and take in the Calgary Stampede, Global Fest, various farmers’ markets, small town rodeos, Royal Tyrrell Museum, the Badlands Passion Play, world class outdoor activities including hiking, biking and rafting in and around Banff National Park, as well as other activities too numerous to mention.
A vehicle is not essential but would be beneficial.
Although the pets will not be in residence, this is a pet home and those with allergies may not wish to apply.
Please contact us if you are interested or have any questions. We would be happy to provide further info and photos as required.
