  • Description


    Looking for one or two people to come spend a month in beautiful Sicily. The work will be quite simple. The primary job is to take care of my beautiful dog, Maya! She is a rescue and one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. I have to travel for work so wanted to invite people to come and stay in my apartment and take care of her.

    Secondly, the apartment is still in need of some renovations so I would ask that you help paint/ accept deliveries / put together furniture. The apartment is three rooms with a gigantic terrace. It is one block from a beach and sits on the beautiful island of Ortigia.

    I am looking for honest, caring people that absolutely love dogs as Maya is the priority. It would be wonderful to also have someone who is into design and interested in renovating the flat or furniture building. I am looking at this as a collaboration both creatively and personality wise. I am happy to host two people and will meet you at the beginning of the hosting period to go through everything.

    Dates are March 15- April 15
