Keep our sweet Rottweiler company in our house that feels like a holiday home
We’re a Norwegian/ Canadian family living in sunny Southampton with our lovely Rottweiler Thor. He’s a very friendly softy who is loved by everyone who meets him. You will stay in our nice big mid century home with a massive garden and an outdoor heated swimming pool in warmer months.
Our Home & Location
Our unique midcentury home enjoys private tree-surround massive garden and a heated outdoor swimming pool. You'll have use of a small main level lounge and a generously sized upstairs lounge/dining area with tree views and is filled with sun throughout the afternoon. We have a comfortable and spacious guest bedroom with a very comfortable queen sized bed and guest bath with shower. The kitchen and bathroom have underfloor heating and you'll have access to our utility room laundry with tumble dryer. We are accesable to major bus route just steps from our door and are located just 10 minutes drive from the train station and Southampton airport. A Co-op convenience shop is 15 minute walk away (as well as an amazing fish n chip shop) Asda hypermarket is a 7 minute drive. Our house is set back in a private lot located on a quiet residential street with lovely neighbours. There is ample secure off street parking and the property is fully fenced and gated. In spring and summer months,the rear garden enjoys full afternoon to evening sun. Visitors often comment that our house feels like a holiday home. We’re just near the am M3 for quick access to Winchester and London. Day trips to New Forest, Isle of Wight, Dorset, Bournemouth and Stonehenge (to name a few) are very easy from our neighbourhood.
Responsibilities & Pets
Thor is a big cuddly boy with moderate to low energy. He really enjoys catching a ball but doesn’t require massive amounts of excersise. He enjoys a walk but we don’t require this during a sit as he’s quite strong and can be difficult to hand on a lead. He loves being around people but can be left alone for a reasonable amount of time. We have two fish tanks - one beautiful marine tank with a great selection of interesting fish, corals and crustations as well as a freshwater tank full of Malawi cichlids. Both tanks are amazing to watch and there is always something cool going on with them. They both need feeding once daily and just checking for anything out of order.
