General description

  • Main home
Hi there, we are a young couple living in Mendoza (18km from the city). We have 6 cats and 3 dogs, no kids. We are new in the nomador world and the idea of having trusted people that care our house, but more importantly, our pets picked up our attention. We really love travelling, but also love having animals and it has always been such a crossed passions, and we hope that with this platform we can get both finally. We don't have experience here, but we do have experience hosting people (from France, Canada, Switzerland, US, Colombia, México, England, Italy, Germany) and being hosted (UK, Germany, Switzerland)... We have been couchsurfers and workawayers for a while. It has been such a wonderful experience, but now we would like to know a little more about nomador world too.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 3 dogs
  • 6 cats
We have 3 dogs (one Poddle, one Pointer, and one mixed breed) and 6 cats. All of them have been rescued from the street except the Poddle one. They all eat twice a day balanced food/pets chips (no need to prepare special food). One of the cats lives inside almost permanently because he is usually attacked by one of the outsider's cats, and this cat also eats special food (also balanced food/cat chips, not need to be prepared). The Puddle and Pointer dogs sleep inside during the night. The Pointer dog needs attention when she is free in the garden since she has a hunter instinct and has attacked the cats a couple of times in the last years (not frequent, but she can't be without attention a lot of time).
The plants need to be watered once a day in summer, and a couple of times a week for the rest of the year.
Main focus is pets care.

The countryside is relaxing. Shopping is easy in the village (there is small grocery shop 50mts from the house), but there's a town nearby (10-15 minutes by bus/car) for more variety (restaurants, supermarket). The bus stop is around 50mts from the house, and the frequency is about two buses by hour. The house is easy to live in and look after. Pets are friendly. There is a pool that can be used in summer and places to make barbecues.

Tourism and Leisure

If you like wine, Mendoza is all about wine (even when we don't drink much wine and don't use to have wine at home), specifically the tasty Malbec that the surrounding valleys are known for producing. With more than 1200 bodegas (wine cellars) in the area, you’ll have your pick of vineyards and wineries to visit. You can book tours to explore them, rent a bike, go to the near mountains, etc.

flexible dates

Our dates are not yet firm, we're waiting before we buy our tickets. We would like the house-sitters to come at least one week earlier than the day before we leave, so we can give instructions, get to know one another and introduce them to our pets :)... and enjoy time together!
