About this assignment

I am looking for a caring, tidy, responsible person who loves nature and animals. Previous house sitting experience is preferable but not essential for this assignment.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

•Feeding the cats.

•Giving one of the cats medicine mornings and evening (placing a pill inside a treat) Toby is a young cat and is very well and healthy but has a heart murmur so needs regular medicine for this.

•Giving the cats love and attention.

•Watering the plants.

What are the good features of the property and location

Very comfortable, warm and stylish free standing eco house located in the forest in Holland, the house is very private and surrounded by a forest garden. The 4 bedroom house has a large modern kitchen, covered deck with pizza oven, comfortable cosy living room with wood burning fire and there is a sauna in the garden. The house is located at the end of a dirt track so there is no passing traffic and all you will hear is the sound of birds, it is a perfect place to take a little holiday or retreat or have quiet time to be creative. The house is situated in Overijssel, between two villages, Ommen and Dalfsen, both a 5 minute drive away or a 15 minuet cycle ride. There is a train station in Dalfsen that takes you to the pretty city of Zwolle in 10 minutes, full of beautiful shops, historic buildings, lovely cafe’s and canals. Amsterdam Schiphol is one and a half hours away by train.
The house is located in a popular Dutch holiday destination known for its idyllic beauty, rivers, lakes and forests. There are many activities such as wake boarding, horse riding, canoeing and go karting very near by. You can stroll right out the front drive and go for long walks without needing to go on any roads, the perfect spot for a holiday :)

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

The house is a 10 minute drive from the nearest shops, it is possible to cycle but a car would make things much easier.

Amazing

Chloe's place has such a great, positive and relaxing energy that I felt like in some spa. It is very beautiful and quiet, with wild deers, squirrels, and woodpeckers coming to visit. I feel very rested after spending time with Toby and Olli, the lovely cats. The cats like to cuddle but also sleep a lot and it was a really nice company. Chloe is an amazing person, sweet and caring. There was always contact with her and I could ask her anytime. I'm really happy I had the opportunity to meet Chloe as well as Toby and Olli and I hope we will meet again. Her place is a beautiful retreat in the woods restoring good energy!

Unforgettable!!!

Chloe and Brad are a lovely and open-minded couple. It was uncomplicated to get in touch with them and they also answered quickly. They are very friendly and invited us to stay one night more, so that we could have a dinner together. The cats are adorable and easy to care, so there is not much to do. The house is really beautiful and located in a quiet area. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. All in all we had an unforgettable stay. We´re gonna miss the cats and this unique place! Thank you very much!!!

Worth a visit!

This is a beautiful location and the house is very welcoming with a big kitchen and a nice bathroom. Our favourite place however was the sofa on the terrace... Lovely home owners and two great, nosey cats, who entertained us quite a bit. We enjoyed our stay very much and wouldn't mind coming back for a second time.

Beautiful place to sit

Chloe and her partner were most welcoming, they made us a lovely meal on our arrival and explained clearly what was expected of us. The cats Olly and Toby were a delight to look after, and the house was beautiful and clean. We loved this sit with a beautiful garden to relax
