We are looking for a dog and house sitter for two stretches of time when we will be away, June 8 to 13, 2024 and August 22 to 26, 2024.

Our dog is a calm, laid back, affectionate, two year old, hypoallergenic goldendoodle. She will need two walks a day, feeding, some playtime and quiet company. 

We have a lovely, well-maintained home and large treed yard. The separate and very comfortable guest suite was recently renovated and designed as a bed and breakfast space with its own sitting area inside and outside. The rooms include a good quality queen bed, a large ensuite and walk in closet and good quality furnishings. The large kitchen and great room, avaliable for your use, are also recently renovated and refurnished and have wall to wall windows facing the large deck and ocean view. The great room has a cozy gas fireplace and the upper deck has a stainless fire pit, a comfortable seating area and eating area. The potted plants on the decks will require watering on drier days.

We are located on Vancouver Island, between Parksville/Qualicum and Nanaimo, in an area with beautiful forested walking trails near ocean coves and beaches. We're in between a marina and a golf course, both an easy walk away. 

A small grocery store, bank, pharmacy, etc. are within 6 to 8 minutes drive and shops of Parksville and Nanaimo are a 15 to 20 minutes drive. There are four or five retaurants within a short walking or driving distance.  

We are in an area with many hills and our guest suite is on a separate level so the ability to walk hills and climb stairs is important. A car is required for this area. We require someone who is a nonsmoker and who can provide references, preferably from past house sits.
