Beautiful Ajijic Home w/2 Adorable Mini-Golden Doodles—Dates Flexible

Ajijic , Jal, Mexico

We are looking for caring and diligent dog and house sitters to stay in our beautiful, spacious, two bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home in the Villa Nova neighborhood in west Ajijic. There is great light throughout the house, and vaulted ceilings on the upper floor. The bedrooms face a walled backyard and there is secure parking in the front. The house has good Wifi and purified water (safe to drink) at the kitchen tap.

It's a short walk to several great restaurants, and the downtown/town square area is less than a mile away - an easy walk, bike, or bus ride. There are also hiking trails at the end of our road. We are two blocks from a bus stop with frequent buses into downtown and other lakeside cities, even express buses into Guadalajara.

Our pets are two miniature Golden Doodles: one is the mom, the other her son (1 year old right now). The mom is super-sweet and very well-behaved. The boy is very affectionate and exuberant. He's house trained and will sit when asked and come when called.

Important note: The start and end dates listed are approximate. We are planning a trip for about 7-10 days in October or early November, but our plans are not yet definite. We have some flexibility to schedule exact dates depending on the availability of the right sitter.
