Kitty sitting in a peaceful oasis on the Hampton River
My wife and I live in a beautiful, peaceful, 3 story townhome at the north end of St. Simon's Island, Georgia, with our 2 beloved kitties, Liam & Fiona. We take pride in our home, and make it inviting by keeping it very clean, organized and tastefully decorated.
We are both freelance consultants and work primarily from home. I have been an executive in the Natural Products industry for over 25 years, and now consult for companies within the industry. Kara provides Organizational Consulting and Sign Language Interpreting services to clients nationally, and teaches yoga and has a private healing arts practice locally. We periodically travel for work and pleasure, and leave for various lengths of time; from two nights to two months. We love to travel and explore the world through great food, cultural immersion and engaged experiences. We have lived in many parts of the US, including Charleston, SC, Boulder, Co., Santa Fe, NM, Sonoma, Ca, Santa Barbara, Ca, San Mateo, Ca. and now St. Simons Island, Ga. We appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of each of these communities, and have strong ties to all of them.
Our Home & Location
St. Simon's Island is a part of the Golden Isle chain that line the coast of Southeast Georgia. Our townhome sits at the northernmost end of island, which makes it extremely quiet, peaceful and remote. We look at the Hampton River, which is home to dolphin, manatee, river otter and many water and land birds, all of which can be spotted from the screened in porch or master bedroom deck.
The kitchen, living room, powder room and porch are on the first floor; accessed by an external staircase. The master bedroom, guest room and laundry room are on the second floor. The third floor is a small room with floor to ceiling windows, facing the neighboring complex's tree grove, and is used as a yoga/music studio. The live oak trees in the grove, which can also be seen from the screened in porch, attract myriad birds, and make for incredible bird watching....
The island has several beaches, a bike path that runs its length and opportunities to sail, kayak, SUP, motor boat and visit historical and cultural sites. The southern end of the island is very popular with tourists. Other nearby islands include Jekyll, Cumberland and Sapelo- all with very interesting histories and ecosystems. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We seek people who really love and appreciate cats and their sweet, quirky, curious personalities. Our kitties are affectionate (once they feel safe and have created a bond) and love to be touched, rubbed and pet.
Liam and Fiona are sweet siblings (although, like all siblings, they fight sometimes). They are indoor cats, but can hangout on the screened in porch. They primarily sleep on the bed in the Master bedroom at night, and anywhere they please, during the day. They need to be fed two times per day, given clean water and have their litter boxes scooped daily, and changed weekly. They both like to play with cat toys, and are adroit at capturing and retrieving small, soft, balls that are thrown for them....
We ask that our sitters water the plants, bring in the mail, respect our home and our neighbors and treat our home and it's contents with pride and care. + More info
