My home is in a beautiful street a few minutes walk down an easy hill to the beach, 2 km from town centre and the river. A local bus will pick you up at the door, just wave your arm to the driver. There are several pleasant cafes, a cinema, golf club and RSL.
I have a small black female cat who needs a cat-whisperer for company. A day's overlap would be good so you and Slinky can get acquainted. I'd prefer an older couple or single woman - no children, no sitter's pets please, and no smokers.
My house is a solidly built weatherboard with a veranda overlooking the forest. The garden is low maintenance with a regular mower. A large bedroom with queen bed and separate bathroom is available to the sitter/s. The house gets sea breezes, and is comfortable in summer with a gas heater for winter. Internet available.
There is a golf course, RSL, Bowling Club, cinema, and Arts and Community Centre.
