About this assignment

We are looking for a mature, trustworthy, neat/clean and responsible person or couple to take care of our cat, Ollie, and our beautiful apartment while we travel. Ollie is a sweet cat that loves to hang out on your lap. He also loves being brushed. (He usually warms up to others in about 2-3 days, once I am gone.)

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Feed, brush, pet, play and spoil Ollie. Clean the litter box. Make sure he does not go out on balconies. Keep the apartment clean although we do have a cleaning lady as well. Be here to let the cleaning lady in and stay while she cleans 1x a week. When leaving the apartment, make sure to close all of the windows and sliding glass doors.

What are the good features of the property and location

Beautiful Top Floor apartment with 3 balconies to see the views of the beautiful Medellin Valley. 3 bedroom & 2 bath apartment with washer and dryer. Wifi and cable tv included. In Walking distance to Provenza and Parque Lleras which have many restaurants, cafes and bars - about 5-10 minutes away. Also, close to very nice malls - Sante Fe, Oviedo and El Tesoro. Medellin has many fun activities with easy transportation available--Metro, bus and taxis that are very affordable. Airport is about a 45 minute ride to Medellin and costs 75,000 COP or a bus is 11,000 COP to San Diego mall but a taxi is needed to get to our neighborhood. (11,000-14,000 COP)

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

We require No smoking in our apartment or on the balconies. We also ask that you do not have quests in our apartment. The building has 24 hour security and elevators as we are on the 16th floor. This is a conservative apartment building and does not allow for weekly rentals so it is usually a quiet/happy building.

Amazing home and cat

You will be very blessed if Heather and Jeff select you for this incredible house sit opportunity. Wonderful people, warm and caring. They are very thorough in giving you all the important instructions for their home. They even shared with us their local tips in the neighbourhood which was so helpful for our first time visiting. The neighbourhood is trendy with lots of green space, restaurants, and everything you need in walking distance. Their home is beautifully designed, impeccably clean, and you will be surrounded by lovely views of Medellin all around. The best part is Ollie who is the sweetest cat, easy to care for and very easy to love! We miss him a lot already, especially nighttime cuddles in bed and morning wake up calls! We hope to be back to sit for Ollie again in the future.

A Fantastic Cat in A Gorgeous Medellin Apartment

We had the pleasure to petsit for Oliver, a gorgeous Abyssinian cat, for two weeks while Jeff and Heather were in the Galapagos Islands this April. Oliver takes a few days to warm up to you, but once he does, he is very social and affectionate. He always loves to be brushed, and enjoys playing with his toys. He especially loves to have his face brushed. Once he warmed up to us, he'd come up to us for petting often, and even likes to have his belly rubbed. Heather and Jeff left very detailed instructions, and explained everything regarding the care of their cat and home. Their home was very clean and comfortable, a modern, well-decorated penthouse just a few blocks from Parque Lleras. This is arguably the most-desirable part of Medellin, in Poblado near most the restaurants and nightlife. If you get the chance to petsit for Jeff and Heather, I would recommend you take it!
