About this assignment

A dog lover willing to stay in our house for a week or two a various times of the year (school holidays) and walk the dog twice a day.
I would be good to have somebody quite flexible.
Could be ideal for a student living at home wishing to have a quite house to him/herself for a period of time. We would love to have somebody local so that we could use the same person again but realise that may not be possible
It is not suitable for somebody wishing to visit London and who would therefore be out most of the time.
We are currently looking for somebody for about two weeks in July/August 2016.
We would like somebody who has a listing on this site and who can provide references.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Twice daily dog walking and feeding the dog.

What are the good features of the property and location

It is in south east London (zone 3), a ten minute walk from the station and 20 minutes to Charing Cross by train. It is in Lee, SE12, not far from Blackheath and Greenwich.
It is a large house with a sunny garden in a very quiet road.d

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

It should not be somebody who is working full time.
The dog can be left for some hours during the day (4-6 hours max) but not all day long.
It would really suit somebody looking for a quiet and very comfortable place to work/study with the company of a lovely, friendly dog. If you were going to be out all day, we have a local dog walker who may be able to help out on that day so it's not impossible.
We have a lodger in our attic room but she does not use the rest of the house and so you would have the run of the house in our absence.
We do not want to have to pay somebody as we feel it would be an absolutely lovely opportunity to stay in a very comfortable, peaceful house in the company of a gorgeous, affectionate, low maintenance dog!! However, we would be happy to provide food etc and cover some expenses.
We have been let down very last minute by two complete time wasters through this site so are really hoping we can find somebody reliable.
This would be absolutely ideal for a writer/researcher looking for a very tranquil place to work.
For peace of mind, we would prefer somebody who has a listing on this site.
