Introduction

We are Gary and Beatrice, a retired teaching couple living in Valencia, Spain. Our home is a 3 bedroom chalet set in 4000 m2 of land approximately 35km from Valencia city and the beaches of Costa Blanca. We enjoy travelling so occasionally need someone to look after our home and pet dog Shaggy for a while, during the summer this can be up to 6 weeks. On other occasions it might be just a few days that we are away. We also have 3 chickens that need checking for water, food and of course eggs on a daily basis. Our home is solar powered so it would be helpfull to meet our house sitters a day or two before we go away to explain the system.


Our Home

Our home is set amongst orange groves but has easy access to the city of Valencia. There is public transport from Lliria, 5km from our home, to the city, but you would need to either cycle to Lliria or take a taxi. We have solar power and a backup generator which takes a bit of getting used to but works very well and is environmentally friendly. We also grow our own vegetables and have various fruit trees.

House Sitters Responsibilities

Looking after Shaggydog and the cats, Betty and Charlie.

Looking after our 3 chickens.

Checking on the pool - pH and chlorine test - it´s easy to do but necessary, especially during the summer months
