Florida Couple Seeking Pet and House Sitter
Hello, We have lived in The Villages, Florida since 2011. My husband, Don, is retired from State Farm Insurance, and I was a middle school English teacher. We've lived in IL and WI prior to coming to FL. We haven't traveled very much since moving here, and would love to venture beyond our wonderful community.
We've received several applications from wonderful people outside of the United States. Since this is our first house sit and we're unsure as to our exact end date, we'd prefer those applying live in the U.S. Thank you.
Our Home & Location
We live in a wonderful retirement community called The Villages. Our home is ideally situated between two town squares, both of which offer shopping, dining, theaters both movie and concert venues, and nightly entertainment. Our villa community has a swimming pool, as well as shuffle board and horse shoes. There are 315 villas here which allows for ample walking areas away from traffic. It's very quiet, too. Both squares can be easily accessed via golf cart. In fact, the closest one, which is only 5 minutes away, is on a beautiful lake, and you can stroll the boardwalk, get an ice cream cone at Haagen Das after eating at one of the restaurants situated on the lake front.
Our home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, an enclosed lanai, a private enclosed back yard, and is approximately 2100 square feet. It was built in 2011. We have an enclosed laundry.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dog is extremely quiet, sleeps most of the time, and requires very little care other than food, water, and minimal exercise. She is very sweet and loving.
There are four indoor plants to water. Plus, we have a maintenance free yard. So, there is no work there.
