Salida is an awesome place with a small town vibe that makes it fun and energizing. Everything is within a short distance whether you're driving or walking. The trails and outdoor opportunities are endless and there is great dining, shopping and recreation all over the area. Day trips are in every direction, taking advantage of the superb location. That being said, the host is unparalled in her hospitality, charm and character and this is certainly a part of her home. The space resonates with the sort of clear energy that makes a stay a retreat as well. Buki is a loving compassasionate companion. Always ready for a walk, some ball or frisbee, or playtime in the river he will keep you moving! Otherwise he's happy to just be with you in your space. I'm looking forward to returning!

Judy's house in Salida is a very warm, beautiful, cozy experience. Buki is a lab mix, full of energy and spunk, but also very chill and relaxed in down time with the cutest disposition. Judy allowed me to take Buki on many off leash adventures and hikes in safe places so that he can run and play freely. There's an off-leash dog park only 10 minutes walk away- and open space near the house where Buki can fetch a ball incessantly- he's a very fun playful dog! Also lots of trails nearby and great places for off leash play and walks. He does need ample exercise morning and eve.
Salida is a great little mountain town w a river and cute shops and restaurants- and many awesome nearby hotsprings!
Judy is accommodating and kind- and thoughtful w housesitters. She left her home immaculate for me and took me to dinner and was very sweet overall. Her home is beautiful and bright and full of interesting books and art.
I would definelty recommend this housesit.

Judy was a delight to work with. She was understanding, accommodating, and very kind. She communicated often and clearly. Her primary concern was the care of her 2.5 year old, large, very energetic dog, Kabuki. Kabuki hiked, biked, swam, and chased countless balls and sticks during our six weeks together. Although he doesn't mind well, he wants to stay close to you and he is kind to other people and dogs. Figure on at least a couple hours a day exercising Kabuki.
Judy's house is well cared for and comfortable. Her yard is full of native wildflowers and summertime watering is done by hand. The neighborhood is quiet but downtown is about a mile away. There are lots of festivals and events happening in Salida and many dining and drinking opportunities.
Trails are immediately adjacent to the city and easily accessed from the house by bike. Then there's the high country around Monarch Pass with countless hiking, biking and camping opportunities.
