We need a reliable, non-smoking house sitter, or couple, to care for our unique 4 bed 2 bath house on a 600sqm corner block, 15 minutes from Hobart city and the airport, while we do the Grey Nomad thing.
Our departure date is booked, but return is not yet set in stone. We are planning to be away for about 6 months in our caravan. The dog is coming with us, so no animals to look after. I'm sure he'll manage to leave a bit of fur behind for you though.....
The house is over 3 levels and the block is sloping. The views over the river to the city, Mount Wellington and down to Bruny Island are mesmerising. We won't blame you if you spend most of your time in our "Procrastination Room", taking in the ever changing views! However, watering the garden, mowing and whipper snippering grass and trimming hedges would be much appreciated.
The main bedroom and both living areas have reverse cycle air conditioners. There are electric balnkets on the upstairs beds. Broadband internet, Foxtel and Netflix are available.
There is a garage with internal access, and extra off-road parking. There is a regular bus service to the city within walking distance (either up or downhill). There is also a great cycle and walking track that runs for kilometres along the river, and swimming beaches nearby if you are brave enough for a swim in cool Tassie waters.
If you want to go away for a few days at a time to make the most of exploring some of our beautiful state, that's not a problem, as long as some lights are left on and you let us know.
