Will update with more photos later this month.
We live in a beautiful 3,000 square foot home overlooking the San Juan Islands. The master bedroom/bathroom is upstairs and there are 2 bedrooms downstairs as well as a second kitchen. Both levels have balconies and BBQs and a propane fire table.
The ferry to the San Juan Islands departs one mile from our house.
Anacortes is a town of 20,000 people with outstanding seafood restaurants, pubs and a historic downtown with boutique shops, wine tasting, etc.
A car is advisable, but there is some public transit.
There are over 50 miles of forest trails within minutes of the house and 20 minutes aways is Deception Pass State Park (over a million visitors each year).
To care for....
We have 2 handsome dogs, 12 years old, brothers from the same litter. They are Dodger and Oliver. They require food/water, putting them in their kennel at night and letting them out in the morning. The kennel is in the master bedroom. The yard is fenced and they have a dog door from the house to the garage and another from the garage to the outside (self service).
Neither of them can walk very far so we occasionally take them for 10 minutes.
There aren't many requirements with this housesitting deal, just taking care of the dogs.
