Hello! I'm looking for someone to house sit and watch my 2 cats in exchange for cheaper rent. I'm a digital nomad and looking to be gone around 6 months. Hoping to leave end of April/beginning May and return around the end of October; though my dates are flexible and I'll decrease the rent further if our dates overlap and we share the house for some time (if you need to stay through Fall semester). It's a 2000sq ft house, located in central east Austin, ~10mins from downtown. It's within walking distance to restaurants, coffee, metro, bike/hike trails, bus stops, etc. House is fully furnished. You'll have your own bedroom & bathroom. I have a office with a sit/stand desk you can use while I'm not here. I plan to leave my master bedroom empty for the cats. Rent is $2300 including everything (though flexible for the right person!).
