We are hoping to find a single person or couple to love and care for our fur babies - two bichon frise's Edith and George while looking after our home and maintaining our garden and pool.
We live in a newly renovated and very comfortable 4 bedroom detached home with a lovely front, side and back garden and decent sized pool. We cherish our home, our garden and our dogs and want to know that while we are away on holiday, our homelife is being well cared for. This will mean keeping the house clean and tidy, maintaining and watering the garden and the cleaning out the leaves from the pool. Our dogs like to be walked at least once a day and also love a cuddle!
Eltham is a lovely leafy suburb. The street we live a no through road - so nice and quiet. Neighbours are friendly but everyone tends to keep themselves to themselves. We have the best cafe at the end of the street. We are a 10 minute walk to Eltham village centre where you will find everything you need, including the main line train into Melbourne, which takes about 45 minutes. There is alos a bus stop at the end of the street. We have lots of cycle tracks, parks, well stocked library and sports centre/gym all within walking distance. Our house sitters are welcome to borrow our pushbikes if you want to discover some of the great local cycle paths.
My husband and I emigrated to Australia 11 years ago with our 3 children. When we first got here we house sat for a lovely family in Eltham who have since become our surrogate Aussie family! We know what it is like to house sit and the mutual trust everyone has to have with each other. Hoping to find a great match so we can fully relax while we are on holiday!
