General description

  • Main home
House with a yard in Madrid Center (very rare). 8 minute walk away from Madrid Río. 30 minute walk to La Latina. 50 minute walk away from Puerta del Sol. 100m2 house (1 big bedroom, living room, kitchen, 1 bathroom). Right next to one of the biggest parks in the city (Pradera de San Isidro). Nice green yard with plants, grass and some trees (a big 15m tall cedar!!!!), plastic 3x4m swimmingpool... It's very easy to park in the street right across and it's free.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • Many plants
  • 2 dogs
  • 3 cats
We have 5 calm, small adopted pets (2 chihuahuas and 3 cats). They need food and water and lots of love :)
The dogs: Fox & Diane need to walk 3 times per day (not much because they're very small and Fox is "middle aged"). We have a big park 1 minute away. They like to walk for 10 minutes each time maximum. Diane was rescued from a puppy farm and just received her vaccinations so she just started going outside recently (and is still "learning" how to do that). She takes 3 pills per day (with food, so very easy).
We have 3 cats, they are very loving, they will probably want to sleep with you... They get along but not much. Johnny Kat is quite old, deaf, and requires some attention. He likes fresh water in different places in the house (we will show you) and he only eats under certain conditions (not difficult but requires attention). The 2 girl cats are young and healthy, they just need love! Kleo is very social and eats everything, while Spidercat is more of a shy "loner" but very affectionate once you get to know her.
We have plants inside the house that need to be watered.
We have automatic system in the yard so no problem with that, and there are some outdoor plants that need to be fed.

We expect our housesitter to have experience with both cats and dogs, to keep the door to the street closed & locked (so the animals don't go out!), spend quality time with the animals both day and night, and to be patient with Johnny. Also, to maintain good, respectable levels of cleanliness/hygiene inside the house and treat it and our belongings with love and respect, not to smoke inside the house, and not to bring people we don't know into our home.

Very quiet area but... if you walk for 5 minutes you'll find a big street with many markets, supermarkets, restaurants, cafés, stores, subway station (URGEL or MARQUÉS DE VADILLO), bus stops, etc. The house has two floors and a garden. Downstairs is the living room, kitchen and bathroom. There is a washing machine but no dryer (we have drying racks for the clothes). Upstairs is the bedroom, with a 160x200cm firm mattress, Japanese-style bed which sits on a low Tatami platform. This type of bed could be uncomfortable for people with limited mobility because it is much lower (closer to the ground) than a "typical" bed. There is also a terrace upstairs, which is big but we never use it because the garden is so big.
