We expect that you will water the garden as required (its mostly automatic about 20 minutes a day) also give food and water to our collie dog, Mia.

This is a very safe area as it is on a dead end road so our neighbours know who belongs here. We know all our neighbours and they are some of the nicest people we have ever met.

There is to be only one or two people staying here. Another word, no guests.

I will ask for a deposit of $500 to cover any broken or damaged items. Also this will cover any non paid utilities. This will be payable on your arrival. Refundable when you leave.
