About this assignment

Are a responsible individual/couple who loves dogs and would like to stay in our home to enjoy everything countryside living in Hungary has to offer?

You need to be flexible enough to stay with and help one of the owners for the first phase of the assignment. My wife's job demands that she go to Budapest twice a week, meaning she's away from the dogs and the house for 12 hours - that's where we could really use your help, until she joins me in the US to help me deal with a family crisis.

Perhaps you have a project you'd like to start or finish and are looking for quiet and a change of surroundings. Our home and village are a real refuge from all of the noise of modern day life.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Taking care of, playing with and walking the dogs twice daily is the most important aspect of the job, plus some basic housecleaning (hoovering) and gardening: periodic lawn-mowing, for example.

Andrea has been tending a "deep mulch" organic garden for the past two years and you are welcome to continue that if you'd like.

What are the good features of the property and location

It's really quiet around our house and one can hike in a forest that is just a 5-minute walk up the hill from our place. There's an excellent bike path around the circumference of the nearby lake, which has more touristy towns (with more amenities) on the other side. It's great for riding around a bit and then having a beer/wine spritzer at strategic stops. Our village has a row of wine cellars, two of which open regularly at weekends. We are well connected in our community and can connect you with people, some of whom speak English, as you desire.

Hungary's beautiful capital, Budapest, is 50km away. It's very convenient to drive to an excellent train service in a nearby village where there's a park and ride. That makes for inexpensive and worry-free day-trips, so you don't have to worry about parking or the petrol costs.

The house is sunny and has plenty of room and two baths. It stays fairly cool, even in high temperatures, but we do have a/c units that we use when it gets super hot.

You'll have use of our car, bicycles, and there's good bus service to villages and towns near the lake.

Our internet service is reliable and our smart TV has Netflix and HBO Max.

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

You need to be at the house most of the time when my wife is working and, of course, after my wife departs, not leaving the dogs alone for more than a few hours.

It's very quiet where we are and the selection of pubs, restaurants and shops close by is limited, but they give very kind, personal service - so it's very pleasant having a walk for a beer, wine or pleasant Sunday lunch, for example.
