About this assignment

I am looking for a responsible person to stay in my home for about two months while I travel. The garden will need regular watering and harvesting (yum!). No pets.

Dates are approximate and a little flexible.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

You'll need to put out trash and recycling each week. There will be a few yard chores, plants to water, and mail to bring in.

What are the good features of the property and location

Cozy home in a very walkable neighborhood: co-op, grocery stores, pizza, downtown, and even the mall are all within about 1.5 miles. Great place to explore Olympia and the area from.

The home has two bedrooms: one serves as my bedroom, the other is currently a "room of requirement" - sometimes an office, sewing room, project room, etc.

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

I appreciate clear and early communication. If there is something I should be aware of, I'd like to know as soon as possible.

I'll be in and out of national parks and the like, so will have limited accessibility.

Can I bring my own pets?

No, sorry.

Karin's home was comfortable, clean and well maintained. The garden in back produces yummy vegetables and gets great sun. The location is perfect- a charming quiet neighborhood surrounded by parks, yet right off several bus routes and an easy walk to grocery stores, restaurants, and more. I found it very easy to get around without a car. Karin provided detailed instructions and local contacts and was very responsive throughout the sit. If you are lucky enough to have a few days of overlap, you may even get to hang out with her! I thoroughly enjoyed trading travel stories and learning about her life. The house chores were minimal and left plenty of time for exploring Olympia.
