About this assignment

We're looking for a single person or a couple (children also ok) to feed and walk the dogs daily, care for the cat, keep the house clean, and water/weed the garden and pick up the dog poo (1-2x/week is good). Someone responsible, non-smoker, not a partier or drug user. Must like dogs - we have a medium female blue heeler named Chiki. She is super sweet, but quite energetic and needs to be walked 2x/day. And a young pitbull mix, Churro - also extremely sweet, but at only 9 months, she's still a goofy puppy. In the summer heat they just want to rest in the middle of the day, so morning and late afternoon is really the only option for walks. This is a great option for someone looking for a few weeks of tranquility in a great community set in a beautiful location.
Date are a little flexible.
I can put you in touch with our previous house sitters for references (our 1st sitters from Mind My House loved our neighborhood so much they now return every summer and rent a place a few blocks away).

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

We have a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, simple house. Just keep the house clean, water the plants every day, and feed and walk the dogs and feed the cat, and give them love and playtime. They like a walk early in the morning, before it's too hot, and again in the afternoon - ideally 45min-hr each time. The beach and trails are close, so this is very easy to do!

What are the good features of the property and location

Todos Santos is a Pueblo Magico - a beautiful town 1 hour north of Cabo San Lucas. The beach goes on forever and there is a lot to explore in the surrounding mountains and towns (hot springs, rivers, fishing, world class diving and snorkeling).
We are 5 minutes walking to the desert hills, 25 minutes walking to the beach, 10 minutes to the grocery store, and 10 minutes to the town center. Our home and garden are surrounded by a chain link fence, so secure parking. All of our windows have bars and the house is very secure.
The town center and shops is a 10 minute walk from the house. There's a hotel 1 block away that lets you use their pool for a small fee.

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

Todos Santos is a fantastic place with a great community. That said, August/September are some of the slowest, quietest months. And IT IS HOT and hurricane season. We don't have AC. The last big hurricane we had in 2014 did nothing to our house - it's a solid, 1 story set behind a hill and well-protected.
We live in a fisherman's neighborhood where there are dogs and chickens, roosters and horses roaming. It is a humble home in a very Mexican neighborhood. If you want to experience real, local culture, this is it.
There is a fair amount of organic farming here, as well as great restaurants. You can access all the essentials by foot, but it is best to have a car to explore a bit further afield (rentals from the Cabo airport go for about $25/day).
