Description

Housesit – Care for 2 dogs in a family home near all amenities. Wife is traveling, while other owner (academic/computer scientist) is at home in the evenings and work during the day. We know sharing the house with the owner is not easy for everyone but we try to make it easy and hassle-free for you. Excellent wi-fi. TV in your room with Amazon Prime, Paramount+, Great Courses, Britbox and live TV, including sports events, YouTube, Hulu and Netflix.
Pets – Big young dog likes constant human companion. Good for Digital Nomads. She will patiently sit around as long as you are in the home but can be out all day hiking, or enjoying the beach along with you in super-dog friendly Southern California, while owner is at work. Evenings you can enjoy his friendly company or explore outside and he does spend a lot of time retreating in his own private quarters.
Facilities – Your own private master, bath and balcony and enjoy the kitchen, laundry, backyard and pool, chaise lounges barbecue all day. Restaurants, fast food all within walking distance. Car use. ID and recommendations required.
No responsibilities weekends and evenings. Hang out with friendly owner or he will retreat to his own private quarters. Disneyland and/or Universal, Sea World San Diego tickets for your weekend. State Parks and National Parks abound for your weekend trips. From the Big Sur, Saint Luis Obispo, to Catalina to Las Vegas and Joshua tree.
Big young dog likes constant human companion. She can patiently sit and wait or be out all day hiking, or enjoying the beach, cafe, restaurant and shops along with you in super-dog-friendly Southern California. She is very happy just lounging around. She just gets anxious when there are no humans in the house. Outside the house she is a real athlete, albeit a very obedient one.
Home owners are friendly, easy going, quiet nature lovers with old dogs. We got stuck with big, young foster dog saved an hour before she was due to be euthanized. Big dog was so nice the bad shelter did not want to put down to sleep and was begging for her to be rescued. California euthanizes 2million dogs a year. She was saved from a shelter that kills 10000 dogs a year.
We love the ocean and hiking in nature. We help save Monarch butterflies and feed the hummingbirds. We recycle. We care about nature and humans.
The home was remodeled inside and out between 2018 and 2020. Of course, more things can be done. This is a home not a mansion, but it is cozy, airy and with abundant light. Private quarters are very spacious. Bedding is premium. We keep the house sparkling clean and well organized and appreciate the same particularly in the kitchen and bath area. There are robot vacuums and robot mops running often as well as cleaning service and deep cleanings. You do not have to worry about the latter. They are provided for you.
Hybrid Car is available for your use during the week, minivan for your weekends. Attraction tickets for your weekend. Watch hundreds of dolphins jump and swim around a tour boat or go to the amusement park. Go see the seals at Saint Louis Obispo. Explore the beauty of California or visit Las Vegas. Have fun.

Points of interest: Supermarket, Fresh Food / Farmers Market, Public Transport, Cafes & Restaurants, Cinema, Live Music Venue, Beach, Sporting Venues, Gym, Public Swimming Pools, Pubs, Bars, Nightclubs, Hiking Trails
Things to know: Cleaning Services provided weekly. Gardeners do show up weekly but they do not do much. If you feel like yard work, and pulling out the occasional weed go for it, but you do not have to. You can help make sure the yard stays watered (there is a sprinkler system but some succulents could use hose watering once or twice a week). You can help replenish the food for the hummingbirds and the bird bath, if you want to but you are not obligated.
