We are looking for a house sitter to care for our home and 4 alpacas while we are away from late December 2018 until the middle of February We are located about a 20 minute drive from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island in a quiet, rural area on 5 acres next to a Regional Park. The house was build in 2011 so is relatively new with living area all on 1 level. There is a large master bedroom with full ensuite and a comfortable open concept living area with covered deck and a patio off the living area.
As it will be winter there will be little in the way of outside plant or garden care. There are a number of house plants that will need to be watered.
The house has a suite which is rented to a single man and there is a cottage on the property which is also rented to a young couple. Both sets of tenants are quiet and responsible and I expect to be long term residents.
We have 4 lovely alpacas who are gentle, curious and are easy maintenance.
