Our family of five is looking for someone to mind our cosy and comfortable home and our furred and feathered companions while we are away on holidays.
Our house is a brick single level house with a large undercover outdoor area which is lovely to use to watch the sunset and enjoy the view of the mountains. There are one and a half bathrooms and a fully equiped kitchen.
We are 13 minutes from beaches, rainforests, the local airport and many wonderful restaurants, cafe's and also supermarkets.
We have two dogs- a 'Shollie' (Border Collie cross German Shepherd) who loves to play ball and spends her days shadowing our kids. Our other dog is a blue merle Sheltie who, though seemingly timid, is also quite confident and loves to play ball and learn new tricks. We take the dogs on the local dog beach and they also love walks around our immediate area. They are kind-natured and playful and are also happy sitting around most of the time.
Our hens live in the chook yard and can be let out into a larger area during the day. Fresh eggs are a bonus.
The Cockateil lives inside in a cage and comes out for spells on the shoulder during the day. She is clipped so can't make any rash decisions to fly away and follow a flock flying past the house.
The garden is easy to maintain and we have some vegies in pots which need watering every day or so, when there hasn't been rain. The grass won't need mowing while the house is being house-sat.
There a few fish in a tank which need to be fed once a week or so.
