General description

  • Main home
Just 10 min to the soft white Gulf Coast beaches and 15 min to Downtown, we're in a quaint residential neighborhood convenient to nature preserves, shopping and a variety of cuisine.

Adult guests are welcome to play and find comfort at our modest smoke-free (cat-free) home with central air and large backyard with Big Green Egg and 6ft privacy fence.

The Master offers a king size bed, 47" HDTV with PS4 & Chromecast, en suite and walk-in closet, while the garage conversion has central air, a queen size bed, walk-in closet, built-in bookcases, microwave oven, cold & hot water cooler, breakfast bar, Keurig, WiFi and separate entrance option.

Needs and Animals

  • My property
  • 2 dogs
The mail will be on hold and our lawn guy is on call and paid ahead. Please water the potted (Asian pepper, eggplant, pineapple & spider) plants outside if they seem dry.

If our Pomeranian and American Bulldog remain at home, we'll be sure to include detailed instructions for their care.

We're seeking a house sitter simply to make our home appear "lived in" while we're away and to offer someone these accommodations in one of our nation's most beautiful vacation destinations. Make yourself comfortable in either the guest room or the master, help yourself to the fridge (please replace anything you finish) and be sure to clean up as you go.

flexible dates

These dates are firm as our flight has been confirmed. The house sitter will arrive one day prior to our departure (or as early as 3/17, if the area appeals to exploration) and is welcome to stay through 4/1.

3/17 - 3/20 House sitter arrives and "moves into" the guest room.
3/21 Homeowners fly out, the house sitter washes linens, freshens guest room and moves into the master bedroom.
3/30 Airbnb guests arrive, the house sitter gives them a warm welcome, shows them the guest room and hands them a key.
4/1 Homeowners return and house sitter departs (or is welcome to stay in the living room through 4/3 then return to the guest room until 4/15).

We haven't handled a trip this detailed but we're very hospitable and guests are welcome to stay for as long as there is a place for a good night's rest.
