Wonderful house and pet sit in stunning location

If you are lucky enough to house and petsit for Kim you hit the jackpot. :-) The finca is in a most stunning location, surrounded by pristine nature and beautiful waterfalls. I spent 2 1/2 months there looking after Fifi, Toby, Mara, Bella and Lucy, which was just lovely. They are all very sweet and loving dogs, not difficult to look after at all. They were lovely company and I already miss them. Around Barbosa there are plenty of quiet, tranquil tracks, perfect for going on long walks with the dogs. They all love their long daily exercise and I got rewarded with the most amazing views and a fit, lean body. :-) The little town of Barbosa is withing easy walking distance of the finca and Medellín can easily be reached with public transport in 40 minutes. I enjoyed a lot playing with Lucy in the pool. She is in and out of it all day long. The house is equipped with everything one could possibly ask for, real luxury. On the property there was also a couple which looked after the pool, the property and the house and was always there if a problem arose. It was also nice to have some human company on the finca. Communication with Kim was straightforward and I was provided with all the necessary information. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this house and pet sit and can only highly recommend it. I would come back in a heartbeat. Thank you Kim!
