our house is on a canal with direct access to the sound, with a large fenced in yard so the dogs don't need to be walked. The cat has his own cat door, and will appear on his schedule (meals and bedtime) and may let you sleep with him. We have a large pool with lap lane. No house work is required (we have cleaners, and if necessary, pool maintenance). We simply ask that you enjoy the premises, the great-to-work-in kitchen; we expect you to use the pantry and freezer supplies. Beautiful neighborhood and neighbors, We will be abroad but will give local and family contacts.
