My husband and I will be traveling to France to visit his family this summer. We need someone to watch our dogs Jacob (Airdale terrier mix; rescue; 9 years) and Gus (Belgian Shepherd; 5 years).

We are looking for a house sitter (single or couple) who can watch our dogs and stay in our in-law unit (fully equipped studio apartment in our house). The house is located just 5 minutes walk from the beach and old town Monterey (Alvarado Street). It is minutes from the wharf, Pacific Grove, Monterey Bay aquarium, and many great cafes, bars and restaurants. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful and there is a bike and walking path that snakes for miles along the coast just a few minutes down the road - perfect for jogging, dog walks and strolls. 

The studio is brand new (just renovated this year), equipped with a full bathroom (new shower/toilet/sink) and full kitchen including a dishwasher, microwave and full oven. There is also a desk/working space, kitchen/dining table and full fold out couch (with extra bed).

The studio is located in the backyard of the main house where there is a elevated gazebo ith a peek on the bay and day beds/couches and chairs, perfect for an evening cocktail or dining al fresco in the summer. The backyard space is a full garden with some grass/green space as well. The full backyard and outdoor spaces will be available for use. 

Both dogs are very friendly. They need a walk a day and daily feeding - pretty low maintenance. Both can go jogging (trained for the leash) although Jacob is getting older so better usually to keep to shorter walks. They both are indoor-outdoor dogs and sleep inside. There is a dog run behind the studio that can be used if needed (but sparingly as they can bark a lot when left for long periods there). The full yard is completely fenced. 

We would also ask the house sitter to help a bit with some watering/light gardening, collecting mail and packages, etc.

If you saw the sit before and applied please feel free to apply again. We selected a sitter but she had to cancel this week so are eager to find someone new! 

Thank you!
