My husband & I will be traveling & are looking for a sitter or sitters to stay in our home and care for our two cats. Our home has several terraces that provide great views of the center of San Miguel & it's beautiful churches, the surrounding town and mountains. San Miguel is a world heritage site with cobble-stoned streets, colonial architecture, and lush flowering trees & vines. We do not have a car - no need as it is a walking town. San Miguel is at an elevation of over 6,000 feet. The climate is one of it's amazing features with lots of sunny, warm days and cool nights.
Our home is about a 20 minute walk to the center with its "Jardin" and lots of artesanal shops. In our immediate neighborhood there are small tiendas, restaurants as well as a big "mercado" full of small Mexican shops selling everything imaginable.
We named our house "Jardin Secreto" because of the lush garden that is waiting for you behind the high walls as you pass through the door from the private street.
Our cats, Chuy and Dweezil, like to hang out in the garden and are usually waiting to greet us when we return from our daily activities and adventures. The high walls of the garden keep them safe, although they are frequently visited by our neighbors' cats.
Our home has 3 levels with 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor, each with their own bathroom. The 2nd level has the kitchen, living room, den, a small terrace and a full bathroom. The 3rd level has a beautiful terrace with a table & chairs, surrounded by a flower bed on one side and potted plants on the other. A spiral staircase leads to an expansive rooftop with a bamboo roof. This season can be pretty chilly here but we have good gas heaters in the rooms.
So, the responsibilities would be to care for Chuy & Dweezil and care for the plants. Weekly maid service is provided and you would need to pay her $600pesos ($30)/week. All utilities paid.
We look forward to hearing from those interested,
