We are a retiring couple currently living  in Ontario who have  purchased a home in the town of Antigonish in Central Nova Scotia .  We won't be able to move in until the end of June, and so we are looking for a responsible and handy house-sitter to look after the place  from May 11, 2024 until we arrive at the end of June.

We have no pets.  Upkeep would be pretty minimal, mowing the lawn around the house and generally keeping things tidy and in good repair as well as notifying us of any problems.   

The house is a charming, well-maintained 2000 square foot, 3-bedroom house with a spacious bathroom atop a hill with a view of Antigonish.  Antigonish has all the conveniences you would need. If you plan to tour Nova Scotia, your own vehicle is required.

There is lots to see and do nearby, with provincial parks, beaches, little towns, and several farmers' markets.  It is also close to Cape Breton as well as the ferry to Prince Edward Island and only a 2-hour drive to Halifax. 

Because we won't be fully moved in when the house-sit starts, it will only be lightly furnished with the necessities, including internet, TV and DVD Player and DVDs but no cable,  cookware, fridge, oven, stove, dishes, bed, some furniture and a washing machine and dryer.

Please note: Pictures posted are from when we viewed the house, so the furnishings in them are not ours.

We are ideally looking for someone mature and responsible who can stay the entire time.  This sitting would be perfect for any person or couple who works remotely, is retired, or who wants a quiet place to relax for May  and June.
