Terrier twosome in period property in Shoreditch
Hi there! We are an Anglo-Italian couple who have an important birthday coming up for a close friend and need to be in Portugal for a week at the beginning of May. We work in the NHS and local government and have never had a house sitter before!
Our Home & Location
You will be staying in the en suite bedroom on the first floor of the house. the house has a kitchen with a separate dinning room, through lounge and two other bathrooms. There is a pretty garden with lots of seating. There are lots of parks and the canal runs near by. There are some excellent pubs and independent eateries locally, and Upper Street and trendy Dalston, Hoxton and Shoreditch are a short walk away. There are good bus links and Overground stations at Dalston, Haggerston and Essex Road are close by.
Responsibilities & Pets
Both our dogs are rescues so they come with a few idiosyncrasies! Dante has had lens replacement surgery for cataracts and still gets a bit jumpy around big dogs especially anything hairy as he has been bitten in the past by an Akita. He requires eye drops each morning. Sissi has lived outside for many years so needs a bit of prompting to use the garden for toilet trips. They are both very much of their breed in terms of being head strong but as they are a bit older they are not too jumpy or loud. They have taken to sleeping under our bed lately.
The house should basically look after itself, but as with all old property it seems to get dusty quickly and of course there is the dog hair too!
