Greetings,

We are looking for mature, experienced and very independent house sitter, preferably a couple, to take care of our home.

We travel frequently and extensively, consequently we encourage you to:

* check the list of terms/dates for already scheduled assignments (at the bottom of the text)

* to contact us if interested to house sit our home in the future (please, include specifics as usual + your target dates)

Please, absolutely no smokers, no children and no pets.

Sitters will be asked for references and ID.

We have two cats (staying outside). Otherwise we have no animals or garden as we are surrounded by forest.

Our home is located at very private 20+ acres with creek and a lot of mature trees. Just 3km to Arrow Lakes.

In our community there are no clubs, pubs, restaurants, cinemas, bowling/music halls or any other city life goodies.

This region attracts outdoor enthusiasts and community oriented people who value and enjoy rural living.

Our house is in rural area with a lot of wildlife, including bears. Closest town is 30 minutes North (Nakusp) and has all basic services.

There is no public transport to speak of. Therefore the car is absolutely essential, 4x4 would be preferable.

Our house is in rural area with a lot of wildlife, including bears. Closest town is 30 min. / 45km North (Nakusp) and has all basic services.

There is no public transport to speak of. Therefore the car is absolutely essential, 4x4 would be preferable.

Our 22 acre property is 510 meters above the seal level. Anyone considering house sitting must expect the snow and sub-zero temperatures. The plowing of the driveway could be arranged with local contractor on "as required" bases.

* There is Telus mobile service in Burton area, but the signal at our property is weak or none, depending on the quality of the mobile phone used. This is because our property is in the signal "shadow". Just 300-400 meters down the road the signal has full strength.

* There is no TV in our household. We have a DVD player, projector & screen

* Our Internet connection is via community wireless network, its performance is respectable. However, it must be understood that the weather may negatively impact the service provided, and the Internet connection we have is slow by comparison to "cable" speeds in urban areas, but sufficient for all basic tasks - electronic mail, searches, posting pictures, etc. However, do not expect any possibility of audio or video-streaming or video-conferencing. Our hose has Ethernet & WiFi connections and VOIP telephone.

* Alternative WiFi Internet connections are available in the library, visitor center and number of coffee shops in Nakusp.

We travel frequently and extensively, consequently we encourage you to:

* check the list of terms/dates for already scheduled assignments (below)

* to contact us if interested to house sit our home in the future (please, include specifics as usual + your target dates)


Following trips to Central and South America (approximately 8 months each trip) are already planed and we will be seeking suitable house sitters for outlined time periods:

* October 1st, 2019 - May 21th (+/-), 2020

* September 20th (+/-), 2020 - May 20th (+/-), 2021

We will not consider splitting individual listed terms, that means only the house sitting teams interested and able to cover whole 8 months should contact us.

If all will work out well during first house sitting term, repeated house sitting would be possible for those parties interested to return.

We are flexible when it comes to overlapping days before, as well as after each listed the assignment.


====== Important additional information ======

The preference will be given to:

* Individuals and couples 45+

* Parties with their own vehicle and experience driving on snow/ice

* People in very good health (as any health facilities in this area are extremely limited)

* Parties with flexible calendar

* No smoking, no pets, no kids ..... these preferences are listed last, but they are non-negotiable.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

Thank you for taking time to review our listing.

With Regards,

Den Rasplicka
