A Dream of a Housesit!

I could not have asked for more from this housesitting experience. Lynda is warm, welcoming, and so kind, and she's imparted the same qualities in her beautiful dog Tilly. Her house is lovely; clean and cozy with kitchen windows that look out on the wonderfully walkable woods behind. Tilly is well-behaved - you can take her anywhere dogs are welcome - and loves food and snuggles. She's not a big barker and I had no trouble getting her to settle into a routine with me. The house is very close to a bus stop and only a few blocks away there is a nice assortment of shops, pubs, restaurants, and groceries and pharmacies. The surrounding area is gorgeous and central Swansea, The Mumbles, and the greater Gower Peninsula are all easily accessible by bus, foot, or car. Lynda was immediately so friendly, picking me up from the train station and taking me out to dinner, and remained communicative and responsive throughout. I'm hoping to return for another month with Tilly winter 2020. I can't recommend this situation enough.
