For 68 days | Medium Term

We are looking for a sitter or sitters who will look after our house and our cat, Nadia and our dog Sophie.  Nadia is somewhat shy but is very affectionate when she gets to know someone. Sophie is a quiet, well-mannered 6 year-old yellow labrador who likes two walks a day.  

We live in a larger, stone house, built in the 1930s, modernized, well-equipped and very comfortable, with a private lot, in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the village of Jenkintown and a station on the regional train service to downtown Philadelphia. Weekly cleaning service will be provided at no cost. 

Fast wifi but no cable TV so you have to be able to survive on Internet, Netflix and the radio.

We absolutley loved this pet/housesit opportunity.  James and Melissa provided very clear written instructions and were available for consult via e-mail during our stay. Thier home is lovely, in a park like setting,  with mature trees and beautiful landscaping. We were also provided with a weekly housecleaner.  We enjoyed the  private back yard which was fenced with a koi pond along with a patio with potted plants.  

The pets Sophie and Nadia were both a joy to spend time with.  Sophie is very smart and willing to please and enjoys her daily wallks. There are a number of hiking trails in the area to enjoy.   Nadia is a bit shy at firtst but quickly becomes affectionate and seeks out a lap to sit in.  

Shopping for just about anything you may need is nearby.  The  Noble train station is in walking distance from the house and a 20 minute ride into Philadelphia City Center. 

We enjoyed every aspect of our time here and we look forward to the possiblity of returning in the future if our schedules allow.
