My husband and I are heading to the UK for 6 weeks in August We had a sitter organised but this has fallen through (she landed a full time job in Queensland.)
Our situation is different to the norm as we have a 15 daughter who will be staying in our house. She is an independent, polite and quiet girl who really just needs someone in the house to make sure she catches the school bus and help with cooking dinner. The cat is an easy going boy who is totally indoors and sleeps most of the time.
We live on the river at Port Macquarie in a 3 bedroom house. It is a lovely spot with a ever changing view- whether it be sailing boats, the sea plane taking off or dolphins, you will never tire of what happens right at our front door. We have started to renovate this house so you will enjoy a brand new kitchen with gas cooktop and stone benches.
Port Macquarie is mid way between Sydney and Brisbane and is a propular tourist destination as it has the most beautiful beaches and wonderful walking trails. It is also a historic town, starting out as a penal colony in the 1800's.
We dont have a garden that needs to be looked after so if you can picture yourself sitting on our balcony having a beer or a wine, watching the glorious sunsets unfold over the river and mountains, chatting to our daughter about all subjects and making sure Mr Flynn- the burmese, is inside, this house may be for you.
