For 2.5 weeks | Short Term

Beautiful new home on Bainbridge Island available for house and pet sit.

We are tucked into a quiet neighborhood walking distance from the ferry, cafes and restaurants on Winslow Way.

35 minute ferry ride into Seattle.

2 hour drive to the Olympic National Park and Olympic Peninsula--perfect for a day trip in nature.

This private and cozy in-city oasis includes a spacious kitchen, light-filled living room, independent indoor cat Gala and 6-month old cockapoo Neptune. I am looking for a responsible, clean and animal-loving individual to keep my home tidy (take the trash out weekly, care for indoor plants), care for my kitty Gala (feed and scoop litter), and pup Neptune (2 walks per day, feed and play) from Wednesday, December 27th to Friday, January 12th.

Surrounded by the nature of Bainbridge Island while steps from Winslow Way and the Seattle ferry terminal, this house is ideal for someone who is looking to work remote while exploring the Pacific Northwest within a lovely neighborhood with privacy and safety!

Petcare: Neptune is a one-year old cockapoo. He is extremely friendly, loves people and is fully potty trained. He has multiple puppy friends who will maintain play dates in the neighborhood. He needs at least two 30-minute walks per day but otherwise is content for a game of tug-o-war in the living room.

- Exercise: two 30-minute walks per day minimum.

- Food: feed in the morning, afternoon and evening.

- Water: refresh water bowl each day.

- Once a week pick up dog waste from dog run.

Gala is a shy, independent cat who is a very "on her own terms" type of kitty. Feel free to hold your hand out for a sniff and see where she goes from there--possibly interested in some pets, possibly not.

- Litter box: scoop in the morning and evening.

- Dry food: feed in the morning and evening.

- Water: refill water fountain as necessary.


- Keep the house clean and tidy.

- Water house plants weekly.

- Take out recycling and garbage weekly.
