Central location Canberra
We are a couple of semi-retired professionals. We have two pets. One mini poodle aged 10 named Stewie, and a 16 year old cat named Hamish. Both are well behaved and love company.
Our Home & Location
Our home is convieniently located in the geographical centre of Canberra. It is a quiet location although close to arterial roads. While it is easier to get around Canberra by car, public transport is within walking distance. It is 200 metres to local shops featuring a small supermarket, bakery, pharmacy and takeaway food shop which makes great pizzas. A little further away but still within walking distance is the Woden Town Centre with major shops including David Jones, cinemas, and a variety of cafes and restaurants.
The house is comfortable, with gas central heating, reverse cycle air-conditioning in some rooms and a ceiling fan in the bedroom. A guest room with queen bed and storage is available for house sitters. A TV room, lounge room and a large modern combined kitchen and dining room make up the remainder of the available space.
The kitchen was renovated with European appliances, including a dishwasher, with a separate laundry and front loading washing machine....
A subscription to FOX sports and reliable high speed WiFi are available to guests.
The garden is supported by a automatic watering system but for longer house sits the small lawn may need the occasional mow.
Sorry, but as we are a non-smoking house hold, non smokers are preferred. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
The main responsibility is to feed and care for Hamish, and Stewie. A walk each day for Stewie is needed to keep him fit and healthy. A couple of pot plants need a weekly water.
The fish are self sufficient but enjoy the occasional feed.
