My husband and I built a new home in 2018. Its three bedroom, two bath, with an office, studio/workspace area and nice yard. We need a house sitter for about three weeks for a trip we are planning. The house is walking distance to the Bosque River Trail, there is a grocery coop about five blocks away, and a few shops and restaurants are within about a mile. It is about two miles to Old Town Albuquerque. If you are a cyclist, its possilbe to bike to the Balloon Fiesta on bike path almost all the way (total of 20 miles or so, but all flat). Our dog is a mini Aussie, age eight, weighting about 30 lbs.. She requires daily medication, which she happily eats if in a piece of hot dog. She is very mellow for an Aussie, and a bit shy. We will also have our friend's dog, a pit bull mix age 8, weight 40 lbs. She is very sweet. Both would need to meet you first, but then will be fine. We could probably arrange for someone to feed them or take them for a day or two if you wanted to do a little overnight trip - if we knew in advance. The yard is fenced and there is a doggy door from the house to the garage. We are looking for a responsible sitter who will take good care of our home and our dogs. They need to walk when its cool out and are happy with a half hour to hour walk, and can do more if its cooler weather.
We have mountain bikes you can use, and wifi, but we do not have cable TV. House is energy efficient and comfortable. There are nice irrigation ditch paths to walk or bike around us.
We are still making arrangements so dates are not solid but the time period generally is. If you are interested let us know and we will keep you updated.
