We're seeking a sitter for our home and two dogs around the time of Thanksgiving 2023. Ideally, you would arrive or visit on Friday, Nov 17, as we leave the following morning (if you're local we can meet up earlier). We return early evening Saturday Nov 25.
We're located on 5 acres, half-way between Wimberley and Blanco in the scenic Texas Hill Country, about an hour's drive to both Austin and San Antonio. Winter is typically a mild and very enjoyable time of year here, with many outdoor opportunities, as well as plenty of interesting happenings in surrounding communities.
Our home really doesn't need special attention - just filling the birdbath and feeder. We have two dogs needing feeding twice daily, with a short walk welcome (they have unlimited outdoor privileges). They can easily be on their own indoors for 4-5 hours if you want to go exploring. Our 16 year old is a small mixed breed, about 25 lbs; our 3 year old is a black lab mix, about 60lbs. Both are sweet, smart, and are used to being around friends and neighbors.
Our home has been described as serene and peaceful. We are surrounded by oak trees and lots of wildlife. Deer visit daily to drink from our small pond. The night skies can be amazing! We especially enjoy our attached covered porch, and sunny/shady lounging deck poolside (pool closed that time of year). Our hot tub is currently in need of repair, and we don't yet know if it will be functional. If it is, a few minutes of occasional attention is needed - and you'll get to enjoy! Your upstairs guest room features a king bed and an adjacent half bath. Internet works well, and we have a large tv, Netflix etc. Our self-watering vegetable garden is likely to be producing, and you are of course welcome to share the bounty!
Our neighbors are all kind, helpful people should any need arise.
If you are kind, caring, easy-going, responsible, dog-loving, possess common sense, and are a non-smoker - we'd love to chat!
