About this assignment

We are looking for a couple that are sensitive, patient, kind, and most importantly, dog and plant lovers. We are located in a smallish pueblo in the Yucatán,30 minutes from Merida and 20 minutes from the beach.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Feeding, walking, loving our 2 rescue dogs (one with physical issues and fears). Routine daily maintenance of the large old colonial house, patio, large garden to keep it clean, watered, healthy, and trimmed. Our caretaker does weekly pool maintenance. with chlorine, vacuuming, chemicals, etc.

What are the good features of the property and location

It is a large old colonial house with a beautiful pool in the center of a small bustling town. The people are very friendly and mostly all Spanish-speaking. There are lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats. There are panaderías, tortillerías, platerías, pizzerías, cocina económics, etc.. There are large grocery stores. There is a 24-hour farmacia. We are on Airbnb which we may block off for your stay (see more info and pics at casalunita.com) (Speaking Spanish and experience in hosting guests would be a plus.)

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

This is a tropical climate - hot and humid., It is 20 minutes to a major grocery store. It would be helpful to speak at least rudimentary Spanish. Must be patient and kind especially with our one special-needs dog and our one especially-needy dog. You must be respectful to our town and neighbors.

Sanctuary Like Sit

What a wonderful sanctuary like sit! Crystal and Carolyn have made sure that Casa Lunita is just as much a wonderful stay for you (their sitter) as they do their guests. You will undoubtedly find it an absolutely home away from home . The neighbors are super friendly and Azula and Alita are the absolute sweetest. Honestly - I highly recommend Casa Lunita for any sitter, but especially those that need a little reprieve. You will have everything you need and more! Have fun!!!
