Our usual housesitter is ill and we need a replacement.
We live in Echuca which is on the the Murray River in Victoria, a popular tourist town and the paddle steamer capital of Australia. The area has a pleasant climate with cool nights and sunny days.
We would prefer a reasonable fit non smoking, Australian based retired couple as house sitters who are happy to look after gardens, lawns, pot plants and our animals. Our house is air conditioned and centrally heated, has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, is 14 years old and situated on 1.5 acres in a rural residential area on edge of town, 6 klm from post office. The garden consists of native trees, shrubs and lawn. We have great relaxing views from the family area. The property is enjoyed by all of our house sitters. We have 2 Labradors, a 7 year old female and a 6 year old male, well behaved and socialized, and a 4 year old female cat, all used to house sitters. We need you to live in and maintain the house as is, look after the animals, mow lawns if necessary with a ride on mower, water fernery and pot plants. There is plenty of room for a caravan or motorhome if you are traveling. Your enquiries will be appreciated.
