The Rambling Retirees will be travelling again in 2024 and we are seeking a reliable, experienced, and mature COUPLE to house-sit from 3rd March until 15th April. We would prefer a retired couple(60+) experienced with housesitting and pet care. We have a beautiful 10 month old Sheltie who loves to play and a daily walk, and a weekly brush.
We have a beautiful four bedroom home on one acre in Toowoomba, Queensland. We can be a little flexible with start and finish dates if required.
Aside from caring for our puppy, sitters would be required to maintain our garden with regular weeding, mowing, and watering. There is a ride-on mower and our gardens are very easy-care with mostly flowering natives. There are a few pot plants requiring a weekly watering.
We have a solar heated, salt water, inground pool that requires very little maintenance. We have reverse cycle air con in the living and main bedroom areas.
We live in a very friendly neighbourhood. There is an Aldi store just 1km away with Woolworths and Coles just 5kms away and it is a ten minute drive to the centre of Toowoomba. There is no public transport so your own vehicle would be needed.
We are about eighty mins. drive from Brisbane, and two hours from the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
Toowoomba is renowned for its beautiful gardens and there are many things to see and do around our region. Previous sitters have all enjoyed exploring our beautiful region.
There is parking space for anyone travelling with a van or trailer, but unfortunately, we are unable to accept sitters travelling with their own pet/s or with children.
This is a beautiful time of the year in our region with lots of warm days and plenty of sunshine to relax and enjoy our inground solar heated pool.
