Responsibilities & Pets
We have 4 beautiful dogs to be loved & cared for, 15yo Bella (toy poodle), 11yo Fifi (toy poodle), Loui (toy poodle) & Argee (8 y/o Belgium Barge dog/Schipperke). The "puppies" are great sleepers through the day & night! Love their walks (except Bella - she stays at home - too old & has a weak shoulder). All playful & love cuddles along with any attention that may come their way!
Naturally, that the house be kept clean & tidy during your stay in our home & attend to any minor maintenance that may arise. Lawns may need to be mowed - garden is all under irrigation and only when needed....
The property has a small pool which would require checking to see if any chemicals require to be added to maintain pool condition. This is very minimal and the pool has a cover & shaded that helps protect from dust/debris.
Generally, the property is easily managed which leaves lots of time to explore the area. + More info
