House siting of our cat & dog in our lovely Hackney Tiny House
Hello, we are Chris and Molly a professional couple living in London. Chris is a tech consultant from the UK and Molly is a journalist from the USA. We have lived in our tiny house for 4 years and extended it upwards last year to give us a bedroom and a study. We have used house sitters before and found it really suited everyone; especially the animals who love to show new guests around!
Our Home & Location
Originally our home was where the local milk man stored his horse and cart; since then its been turned into our two bed home. we have tried to make the house feel homely with study areas for reading / writing and a TV for entertaining. The kitchen is well proportioned with all the appliances you should need.
The neighbourhood is lovely too - there is a supermarket 50m across the road and some fantastic restaurants (Premeur is our favourite) and lovely parks and walks (Clissold Park, Newington Green and the New River Walk)....
Finally there are loads of busses to pretty much anywhere you would want to go in central London (21,73,141,236,341) and Canonbury, Highbury and Islington and Manor House stations are easy to access by foot or bus.
If you fancy taking it easy in the house then our home has everything you need to enjoy your stay, high speed internet, Sonos music and radio in every room, Netflix, Virgin Media and Amazon prime on the big TV and as much hot water and heating as you need! + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Jon or Norwegian Forest Cat is almost 5 years old and quite a character. He is a house cat and does not go outside but is really easy to look after - we free feed him so as long as there is food in his bowl he is happy. we also have a self cleaning cat litter tray so if your stay is less than a week it will take care of itself.
Lucy is our half Beagle half King Charles Dog; we flew her over from the USA last year and she has discovered a new love of parks and pubs. we keep her on the lead and she is generally very well behaved although she does love chicken bones which his a constant battle!
