We live in a "cute as a button" renovated Queenslander style cottage.  We are located in the quaint, quiet and leafy suburb of Freshwater, about ten minutes north of the Cairns CBD.  We have neighbours, but it is so quiet most of the time you'd never even know it!  We overlook the McCallister Ranges and sugar cane paddocks.  There are cycle paths and walking tracks and we're only a three minute walk to some beautiful creeks and nature walks.  It is a three bedroom home, the main bedroom has a newly completed en-suite.  There is a huge country-style brand new kitchen, large decks and outdoor entertaining areas, large pool and automatic driveway gates.  It is an easy house to live in and relax and enjoy.  The house has a 5kva solar system, is fully air conditioned and extremely comfortable and easy to live in and care for.

We are visiting family and friends down south for Christmas 2019 and need sitters for the period of 6th December to 26th December 2019.  

We have two staffordshire terriers.  Edna-May is a 6 year old desexed female, and Ernie is a 6 year old intact male.  They don't need a lot of care, but you MUST be home every night with them.  They LOVE their late afternoon walks.  They are inside dogs, love cuddling up on the couch with you while watching TV but sleep on their own dog bed in the main bathroom every night.  

We also have two tubs of assorted fish outside and they simply need a pinch of food each day.  The siamese fighter lives inside and he needs three to four pellets of Betta food daily.  We have a beautiful black headed python in a large enclosure on the front verandah but she will need absolutely nothing while you are here. We also have a green tree frog who simply needs a water change and a cricket or two, or a mealy bug or two every night. 

If you have small children do not bother applying.  If you can't ensure you are home each night for our dogs, don't bother applying.  This sit is best suited to a couple, we rarely consider single sitters due to the nature of walking two extremely powerful (although compact) dogs, so please bear that in mind when applying.
