Housesitter needed for 3 month (January to March) in historic Halifax, Nova Scotia. We are located in the west end but still very accessible/walkable to Quinpool Road, Halifax Shopping Centre, and Dalhousie University. Easy access out of the city also via Connaught Avenue/Chebucto Road/Armdale Rotary and excellent metro transit connections.
Our home is approximately 60 years old in a older quiet neighbourhood with predominantly families and seniors. We have two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two office spaces, one of which could be a guest room. Three levels and a developed basement with tv room/kids play area. We have tv, wifi, laundry..... anything you would need. We have a good sized driveway.
We no longer have a pet, therefore pet care is not required, but merely the presence of someone watching over things and making it look lived in. We have a good sized back yard and a shed with bikes and outdoor equipment.
As it will be winter, we require general care of the driveway as necessary and front step. The city often clears the sidewalk.
We are non-smokers and would prefer a non-smoker also.
Some expectations we have (or preferences) are: 1. We would like to meet you at least the day prior to us leaving to provide a key. 2. We both sign a house sitting agreement which is found on this site (and we adjusted to meet our needs). 3. A $500 security deposit be paid which will be returned to you upon our return home.
Please contact us if you are interested. And let us know if you have any questions.
