Historic home and pets requiring an experienced sitter
We have a lovely Victorian home with pets and plants needing a house sitter, from time to time. Our pets include 2 precious cats, our chooks and an adorable female Rottweiler....plus some fish and we also have some carnivorous plants that need tending. We look for carers who have experience and can provide references, so we can relax on our holiday.
Our Home & Location
We live in the village of East Maitland in "Denver", an historic, two storey home built in 1885 on a large, double block. A quiet neighbourhood and private gardens makes for peaceful living. The wide verandah wraps around the home providing many sunny spots for morning coffee and reading.
We are 35 min from Newcastle and the beaches, 45 min from the beautiful Hunter Valley wine region and a 2 hour drive to Sydney. Lots of open space and places to visit. The local area, East Maitland, has a post office, chemist and other specialty shops plus a butcher and IGA. There are cafes and a pub all in walking distance from our home. By car just 5 minutes away is a huge shopping centre with all the major retailers plus a dining precinct.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feeding cats and dog twice daily, feeding chickens twice daily & collecting eggs, feeding fish once daily and generally looking after the house. Depending on the rainfall, we may need the garden & pot plants watered also.
