I'm looking for someone to stay in my place to care for 2 3-year-old indoor cats (Nala and Luna) who were feral when I adopted them, so it may take them a while to warm up to you (if they do at all). I'm primarily interested in a single woman, but will consider a couple, non-smoker, non-partyer (no exceptions) who is respectful of my property and possessions. Because this is only for a week all plants can wait until I return for watering, therefore maintenance only involves cleaning up after yourself.
I live in a condo on the outskirts of town. It is on four levels, so being able to climb stairs is essential. The bedroom you will be staying in is at the top (4th level) with a queen size bed, and your bath located on the 3rd level. The condo is located near the end of a cul-du-sac in a quiet neighborhood with an oak-studded gulch as my backyard.
There is a bus stop 1/3 mile away and probably goes most places, but it's a 2 mile walk to grocery store, etc. so best to rent/own a car.
Santa Cruz is a magical place for music, mountains, redwoods, hikers and beach lovers. Weather here in October is still beautiful but a little on the chilly side. (With climate changes, it's difficult to predict anymore.) San Francisco is only a 70-minute drive.
