We are seeking a mature person or couple to care for our home and pets while we are away from July 22 through July 26, 2019. We live in Alexandria, VA, just outside Washington, DC. We live within a mile of George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate and will provide free entrance to his home and museum when you sit for us.
We have an active 11 year old border collie with no health issues. He loves walks and chasing a frisbee thrown for him. We also have a 3 year old indoor/outdoor cat with no health issues. Their care will require the normal feeding, keeping fresh water out, scooping the cat's litter box when dirty and walking the dog at least once per day.
The house is in a beautiful, quiet setting, yet close to our nation's capital. Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac, we back to the water with a 100 foot dock from which to enjoy eagles, herons, fish, etc. A canoe is available for your use.
Minor home upkeep needed, such as watering plants, taking trash/recycles out to street, bringing in mail, and feeding the fish in outside pond.
No smoking, drugs, or excessive alcohol use. Please provide references. We have used Housecarers multiple times so if you require references of us, please let me know.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
