Quiet retired couple seek housing Fall 2024

Tenant Looking for a Home in Cambridge, MA, United States
Monthly Budget: Maximum USD $3000

Looking for an Entire Home | Willing to Housesit
Tenant Timing: From September 1, 2024 until September 30, 2024

Description

We're quiet people, looking for quiet home. Steven is a former freelance copy editor for magazines such as Boston Magazine and Yoga Journal. I retired as a Project Manager from the Massachusetts public higher education system, and subsequently managed fund raising for an urban farming organization. We love books, museums, art, theatre, food, wine, hiking, birds, flowers, and trees. Now that we’re retired and have sold our house in Boston, we’re seeking to explore the world! We spent two months (Nov-Dec) in France, Spain, and Portugal. I’m an avid gardener, so if you're looking for someone to maintain your gardens, we could be a good choice. Your home will be well maintained while we live there. We have excellent references as house sitters and cat sitters.

About Me

Hello! My husband and I are a quiet, clean, bookish couple, no pets, non-smoking. Our kids are grown and off on their own, so we sold our house in the Boston suburbs and have been renting Sabbatical Homes in different parts of the Boston/Cambridge area, Rhode Island, California, and Europe. I'm a retired higher ed administrator and a Master Urban Gardener (through Trustees of Reservations). Steven recently retired as a copy editor for various publications including Boston Magazine and Yoga Journal. Willing to take care of your plants, garden, and cats.
