Wineries, lakes, hiking, biking and skiing, Penticton is a year round vacation destination
I live in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. I am a semi retired 61 year old and want to travel and check off my bucket list items. A friend joined this site so I thought I would as well. I have a lovely kitty and low maintenance home and garden but both need some TLC when I am away and I get tired of asking neighbours to look after my cat and home. This seems to be a win win. I love animals, have had dogs, cats, tropical fish and birds! I love animals and hope to enjoy looking after other homes and pets while their moms and dads are away.
Our Home & Location
My home was completed in 2017. It's a rancher with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The location is peaceful and quiet because our new development is situated between a creek on one side and Campbell mountain on the other. Penticton is a city of about 35,000 and is a popular year round tourist destination. Summers are hot and dry and tourists visit us for the world class wineries, sports events, and many music festivals. Penticton is situated between Skaha Lake and Okanagan Lake so all water sports are popular-from water skiing to paddle boarding or just enjoying a day on the sandy beaches. We are also a destination for rock climbers who climb at Skaha Bluffs. In the winter there are several ski and cross country ski hills to enjoy. Penticton has an airport serviced by West Jet and Air Canada to Canadian cities, but Kelowna, which is about 45 minutes by car, has an international airport. House sitters will have full use of my home. It's low maintenance as I have an in ground irrigation system and central vacuum. My cat is an indoor cat so needs food and cleaning of his litter box on a daily basis but other than that just tummy rubs and love.
Responsibilities & Pets
My cat needs to be fed twice daily and have his litter box cleaned 1-2 times daily. Some watering of planter boxes in the summer months. Keeping the house clean.
