We would like house carers that love animals as we have a cats and a toy poodle. We live on 45 acres at Pipers Brook in what we consider a beautiful part of Tasmania. We are 40 minutes north east of Launceston, with short drives to George Town, Bridport, Scottsdale and other small coastal communities. We have a few sheep that only need to be checked every few days. We are located in the middle of some very good wineries eg: Pipers Brook and Janz. We are 10 minutes from the beach at Bellingham and 15 minutes from the seaside village of Bridport. We are going away for 10 months and starting on Feb 1st and returning on or around the beginning of December. We have a 4 bedroom farmhouse that is very comfortable with a wood heater. If you are able to only house sit for part of the time we are negotiable but would prefer sitters that are able to stay forthe full term. We require you to pay for the power only as well as looking after our garden. We have a large orchard that has lots of fruit that will be ready to pick at the start of the house sit.
