Looking to Rent or Sit

Wanted in Massachusetts United States of America

Listing #137655

Looking for Boston or Cambridge house sitting or swap for PEI, Canada.

My husband is going to be in Boston/Cambridge on a research project from Sept 2021 until May 2023 and so we hope to find a house exchange or house sitting situation in the city if possible. Our son who is in junior high and home schooling will also be living with us. We are happy to swap our architect designed craftsman home walking distance to historic downtown Charlottetown and/or our small private waterfront cottage in Eastern PEI on 800 feet of rugged beachfront. We are quiet, low maintenance, well traveled and responsible homeowners who will take great care of your home. We are also happy to take care of any plants or pets that you might have.

My husband and I live in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. He is a professor of English Literature at the University of Prince Edward Island. We have traveled extensively and are hoping to spend his 2021/2022 Sabbatical in Boston or Cambridge, MA. We prefer to be right in the city, not in the suburbs if possible. We are also happy to exchange our architect designed craftsman home walking distance to historic Downtown Charlottetown and near UPEI or our private waterfront cottage in Eastern PEI on 800 feet of private beachfront.
