well my goodness, i placed the ad last evening and we have already settled on someone. the couple sound just perfect and we are looking forward to their stay. we already checked out their references and everything is looking well.
our past two experiences with house carers.com have been totally and without exception, great.
House sit details
We need a housesitter for 3 and a half weeks around July 20th thru Aug 10th (approximately) for an elderly beagle, Mollie, and her sister, a manx cat named Toots.
Toots is an indoor cat and needs some attention but Mollie is getting on in years and does need her small walks and more attention as she has lost her hearing and now has arthritis
Our medium sized home with fireplace is located on a penninsula; a boating town not 20 miles from Manhattan by LIRR train. Our 2-2 bedroom home has a lovely backgarden with deck and one can sit out there in the evening, with Mollie on a leash, and watch the birds in their feeder or birdbath.
You can walk to lovely parks, beaches, library, restaurants, public transportation, movie theatres, and harbor overlooking Long Island Sound. It is a small, little jewel...quiet and peaceful but hop on the train, and you are downtown Manhattan in 30 minutes!!!
We are near many attractions too numerous to mention which are easily reached by public transportation. Our animals can be left for brief periods of time but need someone at night of course, and in the day to walk as needed and basically, just love as needed.
