I need someone who would like to live in a traditional wooden Thai house that is built on stilts. My cats are not needy, in fact they really don't like to be picked up at all, but do like a nice scratch behind the ears.
Hello. We're a family of 3 who would like to spend the school holidays with our family overseas. My 2 cats are not the friendliest. But with time they might snuggle up on the couch for an ear rub. I keep their food in a large box that only they can enter with a microchip reading cat door. It keeps the other cats in the area away, we hope. The landlord of the house is very close if you have any questions or need help with something. I also have, if needed, a handyman, pool man and a helpful neighbour. I'm looking for someone who is willing to do a bit of work in the garden to keep it maintained and can keep my house is good clean order.
Our Home & Location
We live in a very traditional 2 bedroom Thai house that has a nice big yard and pool in a quite location in the north east of the island. One bedroom has a double bed and the kids room has 2 single beds. If you have children please be aware that the steps can be dangerous and every doorway has a high step at the entrance to the room, easy to trip over. The kitchen and lounge area are covered open air, it can get a little wet in these areas when heavy rain comes. But not directly where the kitchen and lounge are, just the area connecting the two. There is a breakfast room upstairs and a bathroom with toilet. Downstairs is the shower room with separate toilet. Please be aware that when it rains you will get wet in this house. The bedrooms are seperate buildings to the kitchen, bathroom and the stairs that lead downstairs to the lounge area. We have fibre optic internet. There are fans in every room and outdoor areas of the house. The beaches are nearby, but not walking distance. You will have to be very comfortable with living with nature. The house has many frogs, geckos and an occasional harmless snake. We let them stay in our house too. We do have an eco pest control service that eliminates the spiders and cockroaches.
Responsibilities & Pets
I need someone to feed, water and give Frontline to my cats. They eat only dry food and need no medications. There are also many potted plants that need water everyday and maybe a little water to the grass too, if needed. The grass will need to be cut as well. And I would like the weeds to be pulled from the pots. I also have a pool that will need to be kept clean (very easy), the water tested and chlorine added when necessary. I expect the house to be kept somewhat clean, just a bit of sweeping everyday (many leaves come in), dusting, kitchen and bathroom cleaning. No more than you would do in your own house. I can arrange a cleaner for you, but you will have to pay for it. You will also need your own transport, I can arrange car or bike hire for you.
