House sitter needed to care for our dog and house from Monday, December 17, 2018 to Friday, December 21, 2018. We are in an artsy historic home located in Wilmington, NC one mile to the Cape Fear River and ten miles to lovely Wrightsville Beach. We need a house sitter who will care for our 14+ year old lab mix dog, Grace. She is aging and does require some medication(chew tablets) and sometimes encouragement to come up the stairs from the yard. She has a dog door and usually comes and goes as she pleases.
Grace is a very sweet dog, as long as you are not another dog. She is other dog aggressive and sometimes wary around young children. She does need a daily walk, albeit, a short one.
Our home is a fun place to relax with a book on a spacious front porch or shoot a game of pool on our vintage pool table. There are two bedrooms and a sleeper sun room. The house is in a lovely historic neighborhood that is an easy walk or Uber to the shops, restaurants and bars of downtown Wilmington. We are located ten miles to Wrightsville Beach if you would prefer to sit in the sun by the Ocean. Wilmington is generally mild in the winter so a beach day, even in December is not out of the question.
