We are looking for someone to provide a presence in our house while we are gone. Relax in our large 3-bedroom farmhouse on a 5-acre parcel, in a quiet, rural setting. Bedrooms are upstairs; living area on ground floor. Large, fully equipped kitchen; large partially covered deck. The yard is frequented by an army of entertaining hummingbirds (and occasional larger critters such as raccoons, coyotes, bears, and raptors). Yard is gated (one electric and one manual), with asphalt driveway.
Includes Dish Network television and, at last, good internet. There are good walking paths nearby, and a grocery store within 5 minutes by car. The trip to Gig Harbor is about 25 minutes; it’s a bit longer to Port Orchard, Silverdale, and Bremerton. There are many parks nearby as well (Joemma Beach is a favorite); Gateway Park has a lot of great walking and biking paths.
We are looking for someone who can keep the hummingbirds fed (cleaning and refilling 10 feeders about every 3 weeks), enjoy the house and keep it clean, and be respectful of our furnishings. We will have our cell s with us and can be contacted if needed.
