The range of different houses that we get listed on Christian House Sitters is fantastic. We have had houses in cities, in the country, up mountains, next to lakes and in so many countries that I have personally lost count.
Here is an example. I chose this one as an example because it sounds like the sort of place Marilyn and I would love to go for a few months of rest and recharging our batteries. And it is available rent-free for a range of different dates.
If this is not what you are looking for then it is still worth joining as the list of available properties changes constantly.
The following is an extract from the details given by this home owner
We live in a small community 100 km from the nearest town of Quesnel British Columbia. In summer the drive is about 1 hr, 15 minutes to town. The community consists of a First Nations reserve and several ranches and homes scattered through a large area surrounding it.
It is fairly isolated and in the midst of beautiful country with mountains, lakes and rivers and a lot of wildlife.
Our home is on 6 acres of property and consists of a 1000 sq ft log home with an upper half story.
There is also a shed and a mobile home on the property with a guest room, bathroom and kitchen.
The house is an open concept on the main floor with living room, dining, kitchen, laundry and bathroom with tub and shower combo. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a ‘hobby room’ with computer and craft table. There is one large bedroom with a queen bed and large windows overlooking the yard and forest beyond.
The two small bedrooms have a single bed each. Couches on the main floor also pull out to be two double beds and there is enough bedding for all the beds in the house.
With the bedrooms upstairs is also a small two piece bathroom.
There is a canoe available for use. Two adult bicycles and one junior bike is available.
Our setting is perfect for someone who truly wants to relax and get away from it all. There are a few neighbours nearby, but only one house can be seen from our home. Very quiet! No cell phone service within an hour’s drive.
Our heat is by a wood stove, but it is normally not needed in the summer. We do have electric heat as a back up if it gets too cold, but it is expensive and usually unnecessary. The house stays very cool in hot days on the main floor. Log houses are great insulators.
Appliances available: electric stove/oven, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher, washer, dryer and various small kitchen appliances. We have satellite TV with a basic Canadian package – tons more channels than we ever watch, and satellite wireless internet covering the entire property.
