We specifically prefer a couple (preferably man and woman in the late middle age of 45+, non-smokers) or a single woman who will enjoy a way of life offered by our house, garden, and pets.
We look for two pleasant persons who love cats and dogs and have enough experience with both of them, persons who enjoy nature and work around the house and garden, persons who like a calm relaxed space.
The main thing is to have enough time for the house sitting. To be around the cats and dogs, to play with them, to feed them and to look after them. To be calm as they are used to gentling voices and calm space. So the people who love a relaxed space who can do a little of gardening and to keep the house tidy would be great. After bad experiences in the past, we have to insist on experienced sitters who are able and ready to present at least 3 successful house and pet sits in the past (not with friends or family members)
Our 6 pets (2 dogs, 4 cats) wait for the pet sitters who will love them and care for them as much as we do.
We need long-term care from 1 up to 6 months. Dates flexible.
The exact start date upon a mutual agreement. We are ready to spend the first three to five days of the house sit in the house respectively near the house to enable sitters to become familiar with pets, house, area, duties, etc.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to accept the sitters who intend to sit with their pets or with the children. Also, our house sit is not suitable for overnight visits from other persons and such visits are not acceptable during the house sit.
We prefer a couple who don't need to spend much time working and like to enjoy the lifestyle offered by the house sit.
It would be perfect if the sitters may come repeatedly to us in the future.
All pets need much care. Three cats live both types of living - indoor (mainly in winter) and outdoor (mainly in summer). One cat lives indoor only and needs daily medication.
The responsibilities are keeping tabs on the cats and dogs through the day, and mostly morning feeding and evening feeding. The cats eat little and often. They sleep most of the day outside in the summer and come in for snacks every few hours. So all pets need feeding, water changing daily and cleaning the cat’s litter trays and lots of cuddles and stroking. The flowers in the garden need watering and a little gardening… de facto mowing the grass only. The main thing is being relaxed, especially around the cats. They don't like loud noises. They need a gentle assurance that they are safe. The dogs live outdoor only, and they are real guard dogs.
Our home is situated in nature, surrounded by wood and meadows, under the mountain range.
The house is a part of a small settlement consisting of four houses. Next, to the house, there are plenty of hiking - mountain bike - cycling and walking possibilities. It is an ideal place to stay for people who love the lonely place, the silence of the mountains, sparsely inhabited areas, wild animals (deer, wild boar, fox, rabbit, etc.) next to the house; It is an ideal place for the retired persons. It is not a place for people who love city life, definitely.
However, the city of Bratislava (capital of Slovakia) is at 30 km distance and city of Vienna (capital of Austria) at 70 km distance.

We prepared a detailed description of the house, pets, garden, area, etc. incl. available benefits for sitters. We are ready to provide it as soon as we receive a message showing the interest to sit our house and pets and corresponding with our basic requirements mentioned in our profile. The potential sitters can read more details about us as owners here: https://rvingnationalparks.com/who-why/who/
Thank you very much for reading this house sit profile.
We were fortunate enough to be accepted as house sitters for this wonderful “family” here in Slovakia! The area, the people and the history are simply astonishing! We could not of hoped for better HO’s...they have gone well beyond what has been required. Chris and Annette August,2019
