Days:  19, Short Term

Needing a pet/home sitter from Sept. 12 for 19 days. (return late on the 30th.).

The house is in Anacortes, WA. Halfway between Seattle and Vancouver, Canada. Anacortes is on Fidalgo Island and is the gateway to the San Juan Islands. The house faces the ocean and is 2 minutes from the ferry terminal. Anacortes is a town of 20,000 with shopping, restaurants and an active summer list of festivals, hiking, biking kayaking and events. Our house is a 10 minute drive from the cute downtown area with shopping and restaurants. 

The house is a new (as of June, 2020)  3 bedroom, 3-1/2 bath  3200 sq. fr. house 410 feet above sealevel overlooking the San Juan Ferry landing. Faces northwest and gets great sunset views from the large patio, great room and guest room.  House is comfortable, clean and very up to date. Great TV system, kitchen and a garage for your car. En suite bath for the guest bedroom with walk-in closet. Guest room and media room are both down one flight of stairs. Spa available if interested.

We have two cats, both aged 12, "Sev" and "Bella." Friendly but shy at first, indoor and love to be fed and petted.  A cat door to the elevated patio is their only outdoor access. Responsibilities would be 2X a day feeding, distribution of nightime treats, and the inevitable cat box cleaning.  You can leave for an overnight outing (San Juan Islands are beckoning!) and get away with one feeding per day one time per week, should you desire.

The house is a smoke free zone and we ask that it be kept that way during your stay. Sorry,  but no children or other animals allowed during our absense. September won't be the best summer like conditions, but not cold and not too rainy.

“ A treat of a sit ”

Mitch and Sue are lovely and thoughtful hosts, and the cats, Sev and Bella, are welcoming and easy. The house is very comfortable, and nicely situated, with beautiful hikes and views. This is a treat of a sit.

“ Fantastic experience in Anacortes, WA ”

My huband and I had an amazing time in Anacortes, WA caring for Bella, Sev, and Mitch and Sue's lovely home during their 3 weeks of travel! Both Bella and Sev were shy at first, but soon warmed up after a few days of petting, sweet talk and treats! Sleepy time for the kitties was during the day and in the evening they would come to play with their catnip toys  before settling down with us on the couch! They liked joining us on the deck too as we enjoyed the amazing sunsets in the evening!

The location of their beautiful custom home is outstanding, from the water and sunset views to proximity of restaurants, scenic parks, water activities and hiking trails! Mitch and Sue hooked us up with some really great Pickleball players too! THANKS!!

Mitch and Sue are excellent and clear communicators and even though they were "on the road", they kept in touch via text and loved getting updates with kitty-pics! All of our questions were answered during a call prior to our sit, clear kitty instructions were provided to us via email and home gadget instructions and local visitor brochures were on the beautiful glass island countertop when we arrived!

Can't say enough good things about our experience and we would love to be invited back! ......we'll just say "yes" right now!  Thanks for being such great hosts. We hope that we exceeded all of your expectations and that Sev and Bella felt the LOVE!
