About this assignment

We are seeking an honest, reliable, clean person or would consider couple, who will look after our cat, fish and house with care and respect. Mature people are encouraged to apply. The person we are looking for will really get on well with cats - our cat needs company and love and affection.
This house sitting position is not suitable for someone with children as our cat who is normally very laid back is petrified when it comes to children.
We will want to speak with you on Skype before accepting you for this position.
The dates are able to be changed a little bit - a day or two each way.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

We are going overseas from May 12th until mid September.
We need you to feed and nurture our cat, so MUST like cats, and our fish which are in 2 outside ponds. Small lawn to be mowed. We also have a pool which needs maintaining so you do need to be physically fit and strong - can take about 45 minutes a day. We will appreciate you keeping our house clean and tidy.

What are the good features of the property and location

We live in a large 3 level house with a pool, overlooking the Bellinger river. This is an ideal location being just 2 kms from the beach, 22 kms south of Coffs Harbour and approx 15 kms from the beautiful town of Bellingen. There are many beautiful spots to explore within a close proximity and many interesting artistic festivals in Bellingen for those who enjoy "the arts". Person house sitting will need a car as we are 12 kms from the nearest supermarket and bus service is limited.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

This is a 4 month assignment from beginning of May til mid September. The person who accepts it must be committed for that whole time period - it is necessary for the house sitter to be here the whole time we are away - we don't want someone who wants to leave it for w/e or a couple of days away during the time we are away.
PLEASE NOTE: House sitter will be paying the cost of electricity and phone / internet, wood for the wood heater and be responsible for their own food costs.
