Our beautiful roughly 3000 ft² (280 m²) farmhouse, built in the year 1900 and surrounded by 1,5 acres of garden space filled with century old trees, blooming flowers, a fenced dog run, our own small needle tree forest and complete with fire pit and swimming pool is situated in rural Germany on the border to the Netherlands, 5 miles from the city of Venlo.
Our furry family consists of 4 dogs - all mixed breeds rescue dogs; the oldest is an almost 6 year old Bracke, a 3 year old Dachshund mix and two wild 2 year old Weimaraner MIx Ladies - and 4 cats, ranging between the ages of 2 and 19!
All of our animals are very social and love humans & cuddles, and they are used to being treated as a part of the family. Whoever sits our house should be aware of that and be willing to treat them accordingly.
Our home is our sanctuary. We chose country life and this location for its peaceful quiet, its spectecular sunrises and sunsets and its proximity to the Dutch border. We can and do enjoy the best of German and Dutch living and culture. Our home is a place to rest, enjoy a swim in the pool, enjoy the hours on the John Deere mowing the grass - but there is also always a lot of "work" with the animals and the surrounding land, keeping the house clean and everything else ship-shape.
In the house you fill find two bathrooms, a huge kitchen with every possible comfort, boxspring beds, televisions, WiFi etc
We are looking for people who love animals, are not afraid of dark starry skies in the middle of nowhere and whom we can trust with our furry kids and home while we are away!
