We are looking for a mature non-smoking, single person or couple to housesit and take care of our newly 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 which should only take a few hours a week. 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.
It will be late autumn, early winter when we require a housesitter. The Adelaide Hills can be cold and wet during this time with frosty morning often followed by crisp sunny days. Our open plan living area faces North so plenty of natural warmth during the day if it is sunny. We have a very efficient slow combustion heater as our only source of heating. It heats the whole house and we will leave a ton of wood which should see you through the two months. All the beds have electric blankets so you won't be cold at night. 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.
