My boyfiend and I are leaving for a surf trip to Sri Lanka ), and instead of the hassle of bringing our dog to my family in another country (11 hrs drive one way), we prefer to find a house&dog sitter. It is easier for us, certainly, but also for our dog, the dear (sweet&sometimes bitchy) 12 years old Rhodesian Ridgeback lady. She is fit for her age though! And we know she is just happier to stay here in our house, enjoying "her" place, if a nice person (preferably a woman, non-smoker) took good care of her and gave her a nice companionship and love, when we are gone for holidays.
We used a help of a house sitter before on two occasions, and have a very good experience.
Our two-floor house is located in a nice part of smaller city Heiloo, about 15 minutes cycling from beach and dunes that are perfect for walking and cycling (Egmond aan Zee). The house has a cute garden, has a very comfortable living room and three bedrooms. The neighbouhood and the neighbours are very friendly and helpful, if needed.
We are searching for a reliable person, preferably a woman, as our doggie more easily accepts females, 100% non-smoker, who would love walking our dog 2-3x per day, feed her and keep her company. She is, however, used to be alone in the house during our days at work, so you will have certainly opportunity to travel around and discover Netherlands (Alkmaar, Amsterdam,...) Otherwise no responsibilities, just enjoying :) Wi-fi, bicycle(s) available.
It would be nice if the person taking care of our house and dog would clean it nicely, after spendig some quality time at our sweet home. We believe our house is very nice place to be, as the area it is located in.
