Home with great elevated views, Spokane , Washington
We are a couple with 3 cats & one dog , our fur family. We are an airline pilot & ex RN , in our 50’s , our lives are busy. We love to travel together when we can. The dog usually stays with the neighbor whilst we are away but we prefer the kitties stay in their home.
We moved to Spokane two years ago from California. Leonie is a New Zealander and has now lived in the States for 6 years. She brought the eldest cat ( Mr Darcy ) with her from New Zealand and since then we added two more rescue cats to the family. Dog Livvie was adopted in 2016, an adorable Bichon or Poodle mix, she had been living on the streets in Tijuana & is now living the “ life of Riley” so to speak!...
We love our home & our location, we will do all we can to make our Housesitters welcome & comfortable. We hope you enjoy our home & fur family. + More info
Our Home & Location
Our home is in Spokane, Washington State, on the south side of the city. Spokane is a lovely city with a beautiful river flowing through it. It is split into two cities, Spokane & Spokane Valley. Close to the Idaho border, the beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene is just 35 minutes from our home. In fact there are approximately 70 lakes in the area & during the summer it’s known as a great hiking, boating, fishing area.
For skiers Mt Spokane is a short drive away with excellent facilities. The city boasts a diverse array of dining options with local wineries & breweries becoming more prevalent. The climate is very definitely 4 seasons. Summer is hot & dry, little rain or humidity from June through to September. Fall is beautiful with the colors & cooler days. Winter usually means snow & a white Christmas but spring comes early & the local gardens are full of pink & white cherry & dogwood trees....
We live overlooking the Hangman Hills Golf Course, a beautiful Public Course in a valley between two ridges. We have a stunning view of the golf course. Our location is semi rural but we are only a 6 minute drive to local shops on the South Hill. These include Supermarkets, Target, restaurants, gym s, gas stations etc.
We have very Supportive neighbors, a comfortable attractive home & nice walking/ cycling options around us. We searched for many years to find views & for us this is the perfect locale. + More info
