Almeria news | House-sitters wanted
Kevin Borman is a good friend of Spain Buddy and this morning he has asked us for a little help. He is looking for a house sitter for his beautiful home in Almería.
There is no charge… but likewise no pay. All he asks is that you feed their cat, Cloud, and keep the garden watered. Over to Kevin…
“If you would like a three to five-week stay in a very nice house in southern Spain in return for feeding our cat and watering the garden, please contact us as soon as possible. Unfortunately, at short notice, our usual house-sitters are not able to come due to a family illness. The dates we’re looking at are August 16th until, ideally, Sept 22nd (this year!), flexible a day or two either way. At a pinch the first three weeks (or somewhere between three and five) would do it, as a neighbour here can help out at the end of that period.
We are in Almería province (the far east of Andalucía), tucked in the hills but just 8 mins from the motorway and 30 mins from lovely beaches at Agua Amarga and Mojácar.
There’s guaranteed good weather, great views from our lovely house which has a/c and a good broadband connection. There’s a pool and bar in the village 2 kms away.
Whoever does this will need to drive; use of our car can be negotiated if necessary. For anyone from the UK or elsewhere, we can pick up at Almeria, Murcia, Alicante or Granada airports”
If this is something you can help with – please drop your name, email address and telephone number into the comments below. We won’t publish the comments, but will send you Kevin’s personal contact information.
Please do not leave questions in the comments – we won’t know the answers… just leave your contact details and we’ll pass those to Kevin.
DUE TO A PHENOMENAL RESPONSE TO THIS ARTICLE – FURTHER APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. Any and all applications sent before 1pm (Spanish time) on July 31 have been forwarded to Kevin Borman
And finally…. a message from Kevin:
“A huge thank you to Spain Buddy for helping us to find excellent house-sitters at very short notice. Within 24 hours of the details going on to Spain Buddy we had a deluge of interest and our house-sitting problems were solved. I’ve replied individually to everyone who expressed interest, but thank you all again and an especially big thank you to Elle Draper for all the work she put into helping us out.” Kevin Borman”
