We are looking for a sitter or sitters to keep our house and 2 pets company as we head off for a 5 week road trip. Our dog Reg is a 12 yo Lab cross. She is friendly once she’s been introduced. She loves walks and we are fortunate to live beside a big reserve and near a river trail. Soot, our 15yo cat is dark by name and dark by nature .. a right Miss .... she tries to impose her will on the house. She doesn’t much like Reg. That’s the politics taken care of. Our house is a large 3 bedroom house on 1/3 ha block with fabulous views in a good neighbourhood. Plenty of parking space if prospective house sitters have a caravan that needs a place to stay. Our kitchen and main bathroom have been recently renovated. We run gas and electric appliances - stove and heating. We are not house proud people and like our lived-in place.
We are a 5minute drive or 25minute walk from the centre of Ballarat.
Ballarat has all the hallmarks of a flourishing regional city and is an 1hr train ride from Melbourne and well within reach for a day’s visit to the Surf Coast or the Grampians. The region has lots of attractions.... wineries, gallaries, coffee shops, wine bars, restaurants and of course Soveriegn Hill, a very well appointed historic village depicting the gold mining history of this region.
We’d love to have someone enjoy our house and pets and take the time to introduce themselves to our town while we are away.
Thanks Sally & Craig
