We are looking for a easygoing, relaxed and clean conscious home/pet sitter experienced with animals... as we have 5 dogs and 1 cat who are very much a part of our family.
Our furbabies are all rescues from this area and are allowed free run from inside the house to outside the house in a secured area that does not allow them access to the front gate.They are all pretty laid back and contented with very individual personalities. Some are love bugs and some are very shy and do not warm up quickly. Our 1 cat is very aloof and comes and goes as she pleases.
The responsibility of the sitter will be:
-to feed our 5 dogs twice a day and 1 cat once a day...and take care of thier everyday needs.
- clean the dog outdoor bathroom area daily
- make sure garbage is put out weekly
-keeping our home vacuumed and clean.
-Maintain our above ground pool
What we will supply:
We will pay all the water, utility and internet bills and supply the gas for cooking and hot water.
We live in a quaint house on a quiet street with bus access 1/2 block away to go and come from centro...the cost is $7 pesos one way.
Our home is 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with an open concept dining room/living room and a separate kitchen. We do not have air conditioners in our home but we do have an abundance of fans and a great breeze in the evenings. The outside space is fully gated and secured.
We are located 2 blocks or "calles" from the beach and about 10 blocks to centro...where you will find market shopping and a medium sized grocery store. We also have larger grocery stores on the entrance to Progreso.
Progreso is the largest port town in the Yucatan. We have several Cruise ships a week that stop here and enjoy our little piece of paradise. Most of the surrounding areas are smaller fishing villages that still sustain thier living fishing...so fresh fish is abundant here. We have a beautiful Malecon ( walk way) that is perfect for taking a stroll on or watching a stunning sunset.
There are very large expat communities here so it is easy to make friends and learn more about this area. The Yucatan is know for its culture and ruins...which there is an abundance of both here. The Ruins are mostly a day trip...which you can access by car or take a day tour to see.
The Cuisine in Progreso is mainly Yucatecan food ...which you like or dont like. The favorite here with the local people is fried whole fish or "pescado frito"...and ceviche.
Knowing a little spanish is helpful but not always necessary...I recommend... duolingo...an online learning tool.there are many who speak english and just as many that dont. The local people are very friendly and helpful .
We are 40 minutes away from Merida , which is a large Metropolitan City and a great place to shop or just see the beauty of this colonial city.
