1 Month in lush Hawai'i - caring for home and 2 cats needed
Aloha! We are a family of 4. My husband and I and our 2 cats! and well, now a baby coming soon! :) We travel often and need someone to care for our home and our cats. They are very independent yet they need some love, care and play while we are away. They are indoors/outdoors.
Note: if you can not housesit/ catsit on the (approx) dates that are listed here, please do not email us. Life is very dynamic for us and we can't tell at this moment what next year would look like. We get lots of emails, if we did not answer yours, it's because we thought your profile was not a fit for us. I'm pregnant and don't like spending too much time in the screen so I won't answer every single email unless we think you are a good fit. Thanks for your consideration.
Our Home & Location
The house is a multi-faced home with a great lanai with an outdoor couch and hammock to hang out and watch movies or drink your tea in the mornings. It is surrounded by nature and morning bird songs. Coqui frogs serenade our nights. Our home and glass blowing studio sits on 1 acre of lush beautiful nature.
The house is bright, spacious, clean, and comfortable. It has a nice kitchen, living room, dining room, bedroom, and laundry room....
Beautiful hikes near by and well, what else can I say.. it's the Big Island of Hawai'i! :) The biggest and most diverse of the Hawaiian islands.
We are located 20 min from the beach, 20 min from Volcanic heated HotSprings, 15 min from the nearest town, 10 min from the coast (with incredibly beautiful areas for appreciating the ocean, have picnic, meditation and yoga), 20 min away from Kalani ( an ocean retreat center that offers yoga classes, dance classes and all kind of fun stuff)
We are near the Volcano National Park with the most amounts of hikes and an incredibly beautiful active volcano.
There is no reliable public transportation on this island so renting a car is a must. We could help finding a good deal with locals, yet renting a car for this opportunity is required. This island is not only big but fantastic and full of adventures (with a car)
Let us know if you have any questions. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Little maintenance in the house (mainly keep it the way you found it) Feed the cats daily, clean their bowls daily, make sure they sleep inside, make sure they are loved, touched and maybe even brushed! :) They are both very loving cats yet not overindulging (they are not lap cats - but they like sleeping near you).
No litter box cleaning! Yay! They go outside for that business.
