We are looking for a house sitter to take care of our home. We live in a drought area of Ca., so have limited water for outside watering. We need someone who knows plants, especially trees, who can monitor whether they are getting enough/too much water from our watering system. We had someone lined up, but they had to back out recently because of personal reasons. We have one dog, who will travel with us. Our home is a quiet refuge in today’s busy world. We are located in a small mountain subdivision, so there are neighbors, but we are one hour from Fresno, our nearby city. There is a tiny market 5 minutes away, a larger market 20 minutes away and lots of big places to shop in Fresno. We are located in the gateway to the Sierra Nevada, with lots of great hiking very close. There is a lake with water sports six miles up the road.
