About this assignment

The appartment is perfect for one or two couples, a small family or of course a single person. What’s important to us is that our two cats are taken care of: food, water, cat toilet, occasional cuddle here and there and not letting them jump down the balcony. Other than that we’d like for our guests to treat the appartment well and leave it clean and whole when they leave.
We're sure that anyone can feel at home in our cozy appartment and enjoy 2-3 weeks of relax, studying or working.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

What’s important to us is that our two cats are taken care of: food, water, cat toilet, occasional cuddle here and there and not letting them jump down the balcony.
They like to be on the balcony and on the window ledge but they are house cats and have not been further out than that.

Other than that it would be great, if our mailbox would be emptied every now and then.

What are the good features of the property and location

The 3-room apartment, home of two cats and their three humans, is located in a quiet neighborhood of Köniz, just outside of Bern, the capital city of Switzerland. Public transport brings you to Bern’s train station in 10 minutes. You can also walk to the train station and down town area. This will take about 40 minutes by foot or 15 by bike. There are supermarkets, restaurants and take-away food places close by. If you search for "Liebefeld Park Köniz“ on Google Maps you will have an idea of the location, since our appartment is not far from this park. Berne - the capital city of Switzerland - is a 10 minutes bus ride away or a 40 minutes walk. From Berne you can easily explore Switzerland either by train or by car. Also the Swiss Mountains are close by and invite for beautiful summer hikes.
Berne itself also has a lot to offer. Most fun is its river called "Aare". The Aare has a strong current which will carry you from one point to an other.

Our home is the middle appartment of a beautiful house with three appartments and garden. The appartment is cozy and has a cute dining room where up to six people can enjoy their meals. There is a balcony where two people can sit outside and enjoy the sun. It has a table and four chairs and a small barbeque that can be used.
In the living room you’ll find a comfortable couch and a TV with a cable that allows you to connect your MacBook or HDMI device so you can watch TV over the Internet. Or you can just watch normal TV (German, French, Italian, Englisch). There is of course excellent WiFi in the whole appartement.
The two bed rooms allow for 4 people to comfortably sleep in a king size (our bed room) and a queen size (kids room) bed. There is also a crib and a changing table in the guest room. The appartment is perfect for one or two couples, a small family or of course a single person.
There is one bathroom with a bath tub/shower . The kitchen has everything you need to cook. There is no microwave but an oven and a dish washer.
You can use the garage and the shared washing machine and tumbler.

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

Our cats are house cats, so they don't go further then on the balcony. If you want to apply to sit our house then you defiantly must be a cat lover.

Due to medical reasons it is important that Purrfy isn’t put under too much changes at a time. If you apply for this housesit then you must be comfortable with the possibility of Purrfy sleeping in the bed with you.

Great location with two lovely cats

I spent 3 weeks of July looking after Katjas lovely home and fun, loving cats. She came to meet me at the bus station on the day that I arrived. Even came with coffee and a snack knowing I had been on an overnight bus. Very considerate and kind. The location of the house was perfect, right by several supermarkets and bus stops. You can walk to the town centre or hop on the bus. The house was very clean and homey. The cats were mostly well-behaved and fun to look after. I especially loved the female cat Puurfy as she was just a sweetheart. The male cat was a nit more work and quite a stubborn chap but still what a great cat. We had some great times! All instructions from Katja and her husband were clear and easy to follow. I had zero issues whilst I was there. All very pleasant and straightforward. Both Katja and her husband were in contact throughout out my stay and even helped me with some travel queries. We have kept in touch and I hope to return some day in the future. Thanks for everything!
