Dogs and garden sitting in Mexico
"We are looking for a couple that are sensitive, patient, kind, and most importantly, dog and plant lovers. We are located in a smallish pueblo in the Yucatán,30 minutes from Merida and 20 minutes from the beach. Feeding, walking, loving our 2 rescue dogs (one with physical issues and fears). Routine daily maintenance of the large old colonial house, patio, large garden to keep it clean, watered, healthy, and trimmed. Our caretaker does weekly pool maintenance. with chlorine, vacuuming, chemicals, etc. It is a large old colonial house with a beautiful pool in the center of a small bustling town. The people are very friendly and mostly all Spanish-speaking. There are lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats. There are panaderías, tortillerías, platerías, pizzerías, cocina económics, etc.. There are large grocery stores. There is a 24-hour farmacia. We are on Airbnb which we may block off for your stay (see more info and pics at casalunita.com) (Speaking Spanish and experience in hosting guests would be a plus.) This is a tropical climate - hot and humid., It is 20 minutes to a major grocery store. It would be helpful to speak at least rudimentary Spanish. Must be patient and kind especially with our one special-needs dog and our one especially-needy dog. You must be respectful to our town and neighbors."
