I'm looking for someone to house and pet sit for me across Christmas and New Year. My unit is a lovely, very comfortable 1930s one bedroom + study/dining room place in St Kilda East. The study/dining room can easily be converted into a second bedroom, and I've got a very comfy fold out bed (single) or blow up mattress (double) that I'm happy to lend if needed.
Fully equipped kitchen with brand new gas stove, fast internet, air conditioning in the living room and bedroom, and washing machine in the unit. There's a nice back courtyard with a few pot plants that just need the occasional water. Loads of on-street parking available.
The place is just a couple of blocks from Balaclava train station and all the shops and cafes of Carlisle Street in one direction, or the bars and restaurants of Chapel Street, Windsor in the other. If you want to go to the beach it's only 20 minutes walk to St Kilda foreshore. It's only 15 minutes or so on the train into the CBD, so a perfect spot to base yourself to explore Melbourne over the holiday period!
I have a lovely little black and white cat that you would be taking care of - he's very low maintenance, and friendly!
At the moment I'm looking to be away from Saturday 22 December, returning on 1 January, but dates are flexible - happy to discuss arrangements that work best for everyone.
