We require a housesitter to look after and walk our 10 year old Jack Russell X, care for our house and gardens, and to feed and keep an eye on a few sheep, for approx. 6 weeks from 7th September 2018 to 18th October whilst we go on holiday. At this time of year, you can still go out on a whale watching trip from Narooma or Merimbula.
We are half an hour's drive from major shopping centres in Narooma and Bega, on the far south coast of N.S.W., in the beautiful Bega Valley. We have a 5 acre property which was originally farmland, on the edge of Cobargo, a small town with a doctors' surgery, veterinary surgery, post office, butcher, hardware, cafes, pottery, bazaar shops etc, and 3 churches. It takes only 10 minutes to walk into Cobargo which is a charming place, and it takes 20 minutes to drive to Bermagui, a seaside/fishing town, which has a Woolworths supermarket. The Bega Valley has a coastline called the Sapphire Coast, and there are several national parks and state forests in the area.
We have a modern 4 bedroom house with stunning mountain views. The garden comprises easy care native gardens, a vegetable patch and a shade house. Some watering will be needed, depending on rainfall.
Our previous housesitters have thoroughly enjoyed their time in Cobargo and got to know many people whilst they were here. They have house-sat for us more than once, and also visited us as friends.
Naturally any housesitter must be honest, clean and tidy, and love dogs and gardens, and be a non smoker.
We look forward to hearing from you.
