We offer you the Guest Suite to our two-story home built in 2009. We have a lovey 8 year old calico cat, Bonita. She loves people and has never bitten, scratched or hissed at anyone. Shel gets her dry food recycled twice a day since she usually leaves some in her dish. OBonita is allowed outside once the sun is up, but called in (with a shake of the treat bag) by early evening. She appreciates a daily cleaning of the litter box.
We have a 1/2 acre property within the city limits. The landscape of fruit trees and mostly native shrubs is on sprinklers or drip, and the only thing needed is to check every so often that a line hasn’t been disconnected or chewed through by a coyote. A neighbor can be called if l
repairs are needed that you can’t handle.
We are located within 5 to 10 miles of beaches, libraries, and museums. The area is hilly and a couple miles from public transportation, so a car is advised.
We have been in a home exchange program, and everyone seemed thrilled with the house. We have an adjacent rental (separate entrance), so we are seeking housesitters that are respectful of paying tenants just on the other side of an adjacent wall. Also, as each tenant checks out, my neighbor, who is doing the cleaning at each turnover, will need to come into the house for cleaning supplies and laundry. This would be a few preset times during your stay.
Looking forward to meeting our new sitter!
