House sit in La Honda California
My husband and I are retired, he was an aerospace engineer, I am a nurse. We travel for up to a month at a time. We live in a rural area 8 mi from the Pacific Ocean and 45 miles south of San Francisco. We have 10 acres, a horse, a donkey, chickens, two dogs, a cat and two parrots. A car is necessary.
Our Home & Location
As mentioned above, we live on 10 acres in rural San Mateo County, Calif. It is 1/2 hr drive to Palo Alto on a two lane mountain road, 1 hour plus drive to San Francisco, 20 min to Half Moon Bay where you can shop for food, 15 min to the beach (but it is too cold for swimming)
Responsibilities & Pets
There is a horse and donkey which are fed twice a day and which involves some clean up, two Australian Shepherds who live out doors, help with the livestock and are fed twice a day, an indoor cat also fed twice a day, and two parrots - fed once a day. Also a dozen chickens which need to be locked up at night and let out in the morning with checks on food and water. In addition are 5 1qt hummingbird feeders which need to be ket filled everyday, and a bird seed dish off the kitchen.
