Highlands Ranch, Colorado
Hi there, we are a couple of young empty nesters who live in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. Mark & I are Canadians who have been living in the USA for over 20 years. 3 of our 4 children are in Canada, so we like to travel every so often to go visit them. We live in a really nice 3 bedroom/3 bathroom home in a wonderful neighborhood with our two very sweet "old" Yorkies, and "at the moment", our daughter's 2 cats.
Our Home & Location
Our home is really comfortable and clean and can easily sleep 4, 5 or even 6 people (if one or two don't mind sleeping on a futon or couch. We are in a terrific neighborhood with lots of great shopping and restaurants within 10-15 miles away. We are within an hour or so of the Rocky Mountains and can see them from our neighborhood. Great walking and bike riding paths everywhere that can take you for miles with wonderful views!
We are only 30-45 minutes outside of Downtown Denver if you are in the mood to tour and visit the city. Just 30-60 minutes away from Garden of the Gods a small Casino town and other small western towns and ski resorts to explore. Farmers markets, horse farms, wineries, and breweries galore. You can visit an Outlet Mall in Castle Rock just 30 minutes away for awesome shopping too! You've GOT to come visit Highlands Ranch, CO!!!
Responsibilities & Pets
We would expect our sitters to care for our 2 little (old & friendly) Yorkies as if they were your own. They would need to be fed, played with, loved and walked every day as well as allowed to sleep with you at night! They are actually really good with car rides and going out with you during the day, but they are old and tire quickly (especially Maggie). We would never leave them in the car alone though, so would hope that if you took them with you that you would find a place that excepts dogs on a patio. Coloradans love their dogs, so you shouldn't have a hard time finding pet-friendly eateries. ;-). Our daughter and her boyfriend just moved in with us from Virginia and brought their 2 cats. They will be here just until they can get their own place here in Colorado but will be traveling with us to Canada this summer, so the cats will also be here and need to be cared for. They are both "indoor" cats only and CANNOT be let outside
