4 Bedroom house on the BEAUTIFUL Jeju Island, South Korea
My partner and I are International School Teachers here on Jeju Island. While teaching, throughout the year we have many holidays and we use them to travel! This is when we would need house/pet sitters :)
Our Home & Location
Our home is 4 bedroom (plus a loft) and 2 bath. It has a big kitchen and living room area. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed, tv, and a bathroom attached. The spare bedroom is fitted with a twin bed. The other 2 bedrooms are used for an office and a laundry drying room/closet. The office has a desk, 55 inch TV, x-box, and closet. The laundry/closet room has 3 drying racks for clothes, 3 big closets, and a desk. Both bathrooms include a shower. The kitchen has a fridge, oven, stove, sink, kettle, rice cooker, blender, food processor, etc. There is a laundry room just off the kitchen which has a washer (you will need to use the drying racks to dry your clothes, but with our dehumidifier and heater clothes can dry as quickly as 4 hours). We have a car that will be available to you, it is a standard/manual.
Being in Korea, the wifi is high-speed!...
Our house is surrounded by farms and farm roads. The farm roads are great to walk the dog, go on runs, or go for leisurely walks. There is a great restaurant within walking distance from the house called "The Smokehouse" which has food and delicious beer! A convenience store is just across the street from the restaurant.
While we are located in a remote area of the island, a 5 minute drive will get you to the closest Starbucks, other restaurants, and bus stop.
Jeju is a BEAUTIFUL island full of whitesand beaches, blacksand beaches, hiking trails, oreums to climb, and also home to the biggest mountain in Korea, Mt. Halla. With the island being so small, all of these things are accessible to you within (at most) an hour and a half drive.
Within a 25 minute drive in either direction you will find at least 20 different tourist attractions, the newest one being Shinhwa world, a theme park with a casino, bars, restaurants, hotels, etc.
There are 2 main cities on the island, Jeju city and Seogwipo. Jeju city is filled with shopping, food, bars, museums, tourist attractions, etc. Seogwipo is filled with the same, just not as big. Jeju city is on the north side of the island (where the airport is located) while Seogwipo is located in the south.
There is a great group of foreigners on the island which I'd be happy to put you in touch with!
Jeju is all around an amazing place, it is known as the "Hawaii of Asia". + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We now have 2 dogs! We started with Obi and found a stray that pulled at our heart strings and we took him in. Lando is a jindo/lab mix, currently 9 months old. He is a very calm and chill dog. He loves nothing more than to just relax all day and enjoy some lovin! He can be very vocal when he wants some attention with a cute little howl. Obi is a sapsalgae mix (Korean breed). He is about a year and 4 months and is an active dog. Getting Lando has helped calm Obi down which is great. They will play together or play with you and burn lots of energy.
They both get fed twice a day, a cup and a half each of food. They go on 3-4 walks/day. Obi loves car rides and they both love going to the beach!
