We are looking for house sitters for the approximately 1 month, from mid August till mid of September 2020
Due to coronavirus we are not certain if we are going to be able to leave Morocco and if you are able to come over, so this is all just an idea. We already have house sitters arranged, but they may not be able to leave their home country. So this is just a back up as well as advertisment for the next year, when we will need people for a monh of February as well as for summer So if you are interested , make note of out add nd get in touch closer to time. We were very lucky so far with house sitters, but noticed many applying need more notice.
We are looking for house sitter or preferable a couple to take care of our house, daily plant watering as well as feeding 1-2 cats on the terrace. The cats don’t live in the house and are low maintenance (no toilet duties). The few pot plants we have on the terrace need to be watered thoroughly daily in summer.
Our 2 bedroom 4 floor house is located in the middle of old town of Fes. The city is an enchanting place, exotic, loud and full of smells. Narrow streets of this oldest medieval pedestrianised city in the World will let you travel few hundred years back in time. It's definitely one of the unique places in the World, where the time stopped. It's been declared a UNESCO site and you won't be bored here.
Our 4 storeys, 2 bedroom house has ADSL internet connection (solid 8-10mbs), hot water, kitchen, bathroom - we've been living here for over 8 years and it's comfortable.
August and September are very HOT months degrees. It is a dry heat, nevertheless it's very hot, both outisde and inside the house. We do have aircon in one of thebedrooms so you can have a pleasant sleep, but electricity can be expensive if you cross the subsidised limit. The rest of the house has efficient fans so you'd need to be able to cope with the heat. We are looking for a couple rather than single person, preferably french or arabic speaking, but it's not a requirement. Saying that we had plenty of single house sitters and they were fine.
We only look for people who can commit to the house sit for the whole duration i.e don't plan using our house as a base for the trips. We (cat's and plants) need you here every day.
We had a number of house sitters in the past, happy to pass on contacts should you have any questions.
We are asking you to pay your bills (monthly €25 internet, gas, water and electrocity - depending on your consumption, €50 per month paid on arrivial and recalculted on your departure according to your consumption) as well as security deposit of €500 (refunded on departure).
Happy to provide more photo and chat on as well as connect you with our past house sitters.
