People who live inthe Pacific Northwest generally don't go on vacations - because summers here offer so many opportuities to enjoy our beautiful natural environment. However, i am planning to be away from May through September 2023 and will be seeking someone to care for my house, cat and garden. The house is in a quiet neighborhood that is about a mile from downtown Olympia and walking distance from grocery shopping and other necessities.
I have a 1440 sq ft home with 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms and a studio, as well as a 2-car garage and a fairly low maintenance garden/yard. It is on city water, with bi-weekly garbage and rcyclig collection, Air conditioning and very good Wifi. There is also a TV and gas fireplace.
There is an outside deck in the enclosed back yard, so it is a lovely private space to sit outside, have a barbecue and listen to the waterfall feature. The garden has an irrigation sytem on a timer, so requires only the occasional pruning and raking. My cat is quite independent, using a cat door to come and go outside - no kitty litter - and an automatic feeder. She likes company but is not a cuddler, and can be left for the occasional long weekend away.
The Pacific Northwest is ideal if you like to hike, kayak, sail, or just expore. I have two kayaks and paddles that you could use for adentures on local waterways (Puget Sound is 1/2 mile away), and there are many bike trails within easy access.
