We are looking for an easy-going, single individual (or couple) to care for our 1.5 yr old kitty ('Little-bit') who is relatively easy to care for since he lives in-doors, has an independent spirit, and enjoys sleeping a bunch. Basic responsibilities amount to food, litter-box, gentle companionship and a 1-hr-ish, chaperoned backyard stroll (daily) if possible. Yes, walking cats is a bit unusual but our little boy likes to torment the local grasshopper pop. :) Oh also, my small number of outdoor (patio) plants told me to not forget their honorable mention.
Our 1-bedroom apt. is located in the quiet countryside 12-miles south of San Miguel de Allende which is a beautiful, well-known, international tourist destination offering everything. Our cozy apt. is one of four units located on a small organic farm which sits close to a river with a large canyon as backdrop. Needless to say the stars are quite brilliant most evenings as one stands in the cool breeze listening to the swaying trees in the area.
We are looking for someone who is likely interested in exploring the area but who also enjoys retreating daily to their solitude and relative privacy. Unfortunately we have to drive our car out of country (visa issues) which means that our prospective house-sitter(s) will either have a car available (personal or rental) or that they are comfortable riding the bus/taxi’s which pass our home daily at various times per their scheduling. Incidentally, one of our lovely solo-female neighbors who lived here for six years (recently moved) was using buses and taxis exclusively to travel into San Miguel. Currently another solo-female tenant is also using the bus system and is very informed about their use.
The area out here remains safe and friendly which has been ideal for the single women tenants who have been the majority of the renters on this property. Even our kind friend and landlady ‘Carol’ lives solo and comfortably in her home just across the street. And this former Texas-gal is a wealth of information having moved to MX as a child. Incidentally, our front gate is locked every evening to insure that our vehicles are safely tucked-in.
Our semi-rustic apt comes with reliable, strong internet, filtered well-water and all other amenities. There is a comfortable king-sized bed, a full kitchen area, living room, etc, which includes a nice backyard patio overlooking the farm.
We prefer non-smokers although smoking outdoors would be perfectly okay. And if you enjoy grilling, the patio area is ideal for the BBQ (i’m off to buy a BBQ in the near future. :)
So… if you are good and kind with kittie-types and are interested in daily explorations of the area and would like to have a nice place to explore from, then we might be a good fit. And just for contemplation… our 1-month house-sit might be an ideal way for a first-time explorer of this region to scout potential longer-term stays perhaps more into the San Miguel de Allende area. To this we would be willing to assist someone looking for a longer stay (with respect to rentals) upon our return.
We look forward to meeting whomever this sweet universe should send forth. Perhaps we can What’sApp, use or FaceTime towards a nice chat.
Many blessings. And may you all Journey Well.
