We are looking for a house sitter January-May 2024 who can keep our home and small garden well maintained and tidy. We live in a beautiful, newly renovated 1920's 3-storey house in the attractive West Mount Airy district of Philadelphia. The West Mt. Airy district is situated in the leafy, pleasant outer area of the city where there are plenty of restaurants and cafe's within walking distance and/or a 10-minute drive, and even free yoga offered at the community library. There are two grocery stores within walking distance - a food-coop with organic and specialty foods (for which you will have member access) and a more conventional grocery store. The Wissahickon Valley Park is a 10-minute walk from the house where you can hike and picnic. Downtown Philadelphia with museums, live music, activities, shopping, and restaurants is a 15-minute drive away or about 40 minutes with public transportation (commuter train and busses).
NOTE: We are not sure if we are able to bring our small dog with us (a friendly, cuddly miniature poodle/ pomeranian/cockerspaniel mix under 10 pounds), so applicants who can provide dog care are preferred.
