About this assignment

Hello, We are looking for a couple, dog/cat lovers to care for our Water dog/spaniel cross and a cat. Our home is in a rural location so lovers of tranquillity, nature and wonderful views are a must. No trendy handbags or high heels here! We are looking for an active couple who are prepared to be up in the morning to walk the dog take care of our home and land, walk again in the afternoon and look after the pool. Conscientious and reliable.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

looking after the dog, walking and feeding twice a day. Feeding the cat. Keeping a clean and tidy house. Cleaning the pool and terraces. Watering the plants

What are the good features of the property and location

Located in a beautiful area with 360 degree views of mount Maroma and then down to the sea. We are situated 700 metres above sea level. Peace and tranquillity prevail. A bird lovers paradise. See Eagles soar high above. Hear the tinkling of the bells as the goat herder passes by. Watch the sun set with the mountains of Morocco in the distance and see amazing night skies. No light pollution here. Yet just 10 minutes away is our pretty Pueblo Blanco which you can see from the house across a ravine. Here you will find traditional bars and restaurants , a bank, a post office and a few small shops. The town of Velez Malaga is 30 mins away and the coastal town of Torre del Mar just 5 mins beyond that

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

Our house is approx. 1 mile from tarmac road though the track is good but narrow with a steep drop to one side. Be confident driving and not afraid of heights. If you enjoy eating out every night perhaps this is not for you. Most suitable for those who enjoy eating in with a good bottle of wine watching the stars.

Testimonials

We would definitely love to come pet sitting to Cookie, Scooby and Floss again

The view is stunning from the house, the village is full of cheerful people. The finca is well furnished and cozy, and Floss, Cookie and Scooby are absolutely lovely creatures. In these two months they became our treasured furry friends! Alison and Andy were very nice towards us, they make us feel at home. They took us to Canillas and to Velez Malaga to show us where the shops and other interesting thing are. They even wrote us a manual with all the important information we needed to know about the house and the pets. It was a pleasure to meet them and their lovely furry family!
