We are looking for a mature non-smoking, single person or couple to housesit and take care of our established small garden and our beautiful home. We live in a near new 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home in the small town of Nairne 6kms from Mt.Barker and 32 kms from Adelaide CBD. Nairne is the ideal location from which to explore the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula, Adelaide CBD and Southern Vales Winery region. Even the Barossao Valley is only an hour's drive away. There are no pets to look after so long day trips would not be problematic. We would expect the housesitter to attend to basic weeding chores and daily watering if required. Public transport to Mt. Barker and Adelaide is available only from Monday to Saturday, with a busstop only a few minutes walk away. Having your own car would definitely broaden your opportunies of exploring this lovely area and excursions to the beautiful beaches of the Fleurieu Peninsula.
It will be late summer when we require a housesitter. The Adelaide Hills do not get as hot as the plains and although we don't have airconditioning our house stays relatively cool on all but the hottests days. We have overhead fans in our living area and master bedroom and most of the summer quilts are still required.We have an ample supply of rainwater from our tanks but in the unlikely event this runs out it is easy to change over to the mains supply.
If the housesitter has a small wellbehaved dog this could be negotiated as the property is fenced.
We are connected to the NBN and there would be a generous amount of WIFI data available. We also have Netflix on our Smart TV.
