Cat and house sitting in natural park 3km from beach, SW Algarve
I have been traveling for a while before settling down and having a pet has kept me at home a lot more than expected, simply cause I wanted to. My cat, Misty, is the first pet I have owned myself and have a very close connection with her. In winter time we live together, but in summer we share the house with tourists. I rent my house/rooms, or organize yoga retreats and Misty is following my guests a very yogic cat....
I still love to travel but really want to make sure Misty is in caring and loving hands cause she needs to give and receive lots of love.
I also like to have someone in the house who can take care of the property. Winter time can be amazing here, when the sun is out it is warm, but when it´s gone the houses get pretty cold. I have a gas heater (for quick heat) in the house and a wood burner.
There are bikes available and the beach is just 20 min ride away!
So this is the chance to live in a yoga retreat place, on your own, with the company of my lovely cat.
I hope to find someone close by who I could contact last minute too, cause the best trips come unexpectedly;)
I am very interested in a long term relationship with someone, maybe someone who can replace me as a airbnb host when im gone.
Look forward to hear from you.

Our Home & Location
The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living area and a huge garden with pool and yoga deck.
Vale da Telha in an urbanisation in a Costa Vicentina Natural park. The community is young and international, most people are into surfing, yoga, biking, walking: healthy, happy lifestyle....
There are 2 beaches (Arrifana and Monte Clerigo) just 3 km away, small supermarket, bars and restaurants on 1 km distance and all other shops, banks, post office, bus station etc in Aljezur 6 km away.
The closest train station is in Lagos (which is on the south coast) and there are limited busses from there to Aljezur and then from here you would need a 10 min taxi ride up to Vale da Telha.
With a bicycle you can easily go around, but if you want to go to Aljezur you can also easily hitch hike, people are used to give others a ride. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Misty is a very social cat, she likes to be around people and will follow you all day, she will even try to snuggle up with you in the bed! I have many reviews of my guests written on her rather than their stay, cause she simply leave an amazing impression. So she needs food and lots of love.
Also the house needs to be aired and the garden (and pool) maintained which means mainly just some weeding....
I like to leave a clean house and come back in a clean house;) + More info
