About this assignment

Looking for clean and dog loving individual(s) to care for my home and pets (2dogs) as if they were their own, or Better!. Ideally someone who works from home so they will spend more time there.

We have a home in the US and are looking for people to house sit in April/May and again in October/November but our dates are also flexible.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Take care of our home and pets. Walk and feed the dogs, make sure they always have fresh water and get love everyday. Some minimal cooking as our pets are spoiled and won’t eat their dry food unless it has “delishousness” added on top. delishousness being anything that tastes good so boiling bones to makes stock. Rinse the pan from cooking meat (excellent meat is cheap in Uruguay) and adding that, scraps and other things cooked together etc. I usually leave 6 liters or so in the freezer to start you off.

Yard is fenced and dogs tend to do their “business” there as well, so at least weekly or more clean up the yard of dog waste.

Also feed the birds and any neighborhood cats that come to visit on a regular basis.

Keep the house clean and orderly. (Dogs do shed a lo) Keep house locked up tight at night or inadvent of storms.

What are the good features of the property and location

It is a rustic home with a thatched roof and very charming. We are 3 short blocks from the beach or the bus to the Capital or town . There is a traditional Parilla (grill) for bbq’s and an outdoor space for dining alfresco or indoors as well but outside the main house. We are 10 minutes by car from the city of Punta del Este or Maldonado with lots of restaurants and shopping.

We have high speed internet, washer dryer and all the comforts of an American home which is not usually the case here.

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

This is a quiet suburban neighborhood and not in the center or town so it can feel remote. While the supermarket is walkable it is not just around the corner. We do have bicycles and could arrange for use of our car but you must drive a stick.

Our older dog can and will have accidents in the house sometimes. Why being able to easily open a door to the fenced yard is so nice, but still....

There are steps up to the house and a rustic stair to the upper living room so house is not handicap accessible or friendly to mobility issues.

Garden is irrigated automatically and there is a gardener but care needs taken sometimes, such as weeding, turn off irrigation if there is too much rain. etc. Hand water some pots perhaps..
