West Seattle house with dog and cat
We're Sonja and Mel, and we travel often for fun and to visit family and friends. We like our home to look lived in while we are away, and our animals safe and comfy in their own home.
Our Home & Location
Our house is in the southwest part of West Seattle, about a 20 minute drive to downtown Seattle and close to Lincoln Park, which is a beautiful park with a beach on the water. It's also on a couple of bus lines that go straight downtown. We live on a quiet block, nice families and friendly people. We also have a large yard and a deck, and it's fairly private too.
Our house is small, 2 bedroom/1 bath. There is a small coffee shop within walking distance, and two bars/restaurants that are about a 10 minute walk away. You can drive to other parts of Seattle like Capitol Hill and Georgetown in about 15 minutes or so. Its a less than 10 minute drive to the Junction, which is a part of West Seattle with lots of shops, bars, restaurants, etc. We're also close to White Center, which has some pretty great pho and a great korean fried chicken place, and a few new cool bars.
Responsibilities & Pets
Care for one dog, Mozy--lab/pit mix and one cat, Bat--a diva.
Mozy can be alone up to 8 hours a day. She loves to go on walks and hikes and to play fetch. She does pull a lot on walks, but loves them! She also loves hiking, and we do that a lot with her too. Bat is low maintenance--just need to make sure housesitters are very careful not to let her slip out the door.
