About this assignment

I am looking for a housesitter who will love my house (like I love it!) while I'm travelling this summer. You could be a single or a couple--the main requirement is that you are (of course) responsible, tidy, honest, and follow common sense rules of neighbourhood living.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

My house is a tidy bungalow in Nanaimo--central Vancouver Island. I have 2 airbnb rooms that are on the (separate) lower floor. They will need some management while I'm gone, and so, in addition to free accommodation for yourself, you would receive a portion of the fees that I receive from airbnb in exchange for preparing the rooms for guests and making folks feel welcome. I really do have the most wonderful/lovely folks come into my home. There is a vegetable garden (eat those tomatoes!) and flowers that will need watering. Maybe the grass will need a mow. Maybe the mail will need to be brought in. Decks will need books to be read on and the hot tub will need you to soak. No pets to look after, but you are welcome to pat the odd stray cat that happens by, and do say "hi" to any wandering raccoons! :)

What are the good features of the property and location

Well, my house is in central Nanaimo near the Departure Bay ferry. It's fairly close to our charming downtown and just minutes from the oceanside. Nanaimo is also a good central base to Vancouver Island exploration. Tofino, Victoria, Comox Valley, and great little trips just a few hours out of Nanaimo.
The house itself is quaint, tidy and has a bit of charm. Lots of greenery and a private back yard. Nice neighbours too. 2 great decks, a barbeque --oh, did I mention the little hot tub tucked away onto the cedar back deck?

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment think about you willingness to take care of the airbnb for me. It not an onerous job, but still--a responsibility. Please message me to clarify the tasks that would need to be done.
