Beautiful 1920's Bungalow in Great Neighborhood (1.5 miles from beach)
Hello, I'm Darcie. Thank you for stopping by my home listing. I go out of town from time-to-time and my pets do better when their routine stays the same so I like having a house sitter. I am fairly new to the Trusted Housesitters community, however, I have used sitters several times in the past.
My career as a creative professional gives me flexibility and I often work from home. I have lived in Santa Monica for about 5 years. I love my neighborhood and could not ask for a better place to live on the Westside of Los Angeles....
My favorite weekend activities are walking to the Saturday farmer's market and riding my bike to the beach. The Santa Monica mountains are also nearby which provide spectacular views from the hiking trails. + More info
Our Home & Location
My 1-bedroom, 1-bath,1920's bungalow style apartment is one of three in the building and my neighbors are very kind. I have a front garden and back patio for plenty of outdoor space which is great in the Summer evenings. The interior is about 700 square feet with an open floor plan in the kitchen and living area, which makes for a more spacious feel.
There is so much to do all around me, as well as, immediate and close access to public transportation including the Expo Line Metro, Big Blue Bus, Hulu Bikes, and Birds. The area is also very walkable with a large park with public library (and free wifi) two blocks away, grocery and pharmacy three blocks away, restaurants and coffee shops within a few blocks, a community swimming pool close by, and 10-15 minute drive (or bus ride) from the beach....
The apartment has been recently remodeled with hardwood and tile floors, a spa shower, plus amenities such as a washer/dryer and standing A/C unit. I also have a garage parking spot which would be available to sitters (when I am not leaving my car behind). Additionally, I have high-speed internet and a SmartTV which is connected to apps like Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
While away, I will need someone to take care of my doggies Bijou and Lola, plus keep my kitty Violet company and watch over my turtle Charlie.
Bijou and Lola are walked and fed twice a day (morning and night). Violet is fed once a day and her litter box is cleaned once or twice a day. Charlie does not need much care and is fed twice a week.
