About this assignment

Currently we have a small dog, a young cat and 6 chooks. We don't smoke on our property at all and would prefer that you didn't either.

We need someone from December 25 - January 2nd. You would need to arrive on the morning of the 25th so we can show you around and introduce you to the animals before we leave after lunch. We will be back very late on the 2nd, so would be happy for you to spend the night of the 2nd with us, or leave late in the evening yourself - whichever you prefer.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

You need to collect the eggs, talk to the chooks, check the water trough, take the dog for a daily walk, play with him and give him and the cat lots of affection as well as food. Oh, and enjoy the house and the area - that's it!

What are the good features of the property and location

Lovely, quiet, house in a good area with a policeman living on one side and an elderly lady on the other. The reserve for dog walking is about 4 minutes walk away and we are nice and close to a very good bus service if you don't have a car. Greerton is about 20 minutes walk away with a supermarket, cafes and all the shops you would need as well as a gym and a great heated swimming pool complex. Golf, tennis, movies and theatres etc are all easy to get to as well. There are two bikes available for you to use. The beaches are a bus ride away and there are two boogie boards in the garage.

All the mod cons in the house - widescreen TV, DVD player, dishwasher, 2 bathrooms, new kitchen, wi-fi.

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

You need to be committed to taking the dog for a walk every day, or he will get restless. Once he's had a walk, he will be happy, leaving you free to enjoy the best of the area.
