For 4 weeks | Short Medium Term

We're traveling west with our two children for a month this summer. We usually board our two large-ish dogs, but that gets expensive and we're a little nervous about our house being unoccupied for such a long time. Also, as Austin is such a great place to visit, we thought this might be a win-win! We own a housecleaning business, so weekly maid service will be included in this arrangement.

Our house is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 2300 sq ft house in a beautiful, hilly neighborhood full of mature trees. We're within walking distance of a grocery store, bus route, library,  shopping and restaurants, and a minute drive from downtown Austin. We have wifi, cable, a nice shaded patio with pool, and a well-equipped kitchen. Austin is great for outdoor activities -- loads of trails, the lake for kayaking, SUP or boating, and of course the world-renowned music scene.

Matix & Ginger are 7-year-old short-hair mixed breed dogs and are generally quite well-behaved, though they do bark at passersby. They are territorial with dogs, so you cannot bring a pet. Ginger is nervous with new people, so a good comfort level with dogs will be essential. Matix needs walking daily. Ginger has leash anxiety, so we take her to a nearby dog park a couple of times a week. Our pool will need some basic maintenance (empty skimmer basket, add chlorine and water as needed). We do have a handful of plants that will need water occasionally.
