A beautiful home, with a beautiful Boy in the gorgeous Pioneer Valley
Hello potential house sitters,
My husband and I live in Tropical North Queensland right in the Pioneer Valley region west of Mackay. We both work in the mining industry. We have a gorgeous home, 25 min drive to town or 30 mins away some amazing national parks. We have a gorgeous French bulldog named Bailey. He is our child and is very spoilt. We are very adventurous people, into fitness, love the beach and love travelling. We have travelled to over 25 countries together. We got married last year in beautiful Airlie Beach which is only 1 hour drive from our place, our Honeymoon is the reason we are looking for a potential couple or individual to house sit. We haven't had a house sitter before but from previous small trips away when our dog hasn't been at home can suffer from anxiety if he is away from home for too long, so this is our reason for using Trusted House Sitters. We are away for 5 weeks during May-June 2019. This is the longest we have been away from our dog and find he will be better suited staying in his home environment but are having trouble finding a reliable, energetic candidate/s to look after him and our home.
Our Home & Location
Our home is located 25 mins West of Mackay in the Pioneer Valley. We have a 4 bedroom home on a 1000sq meter block, within walking distance to the Town Centre which includes 10 convenience shops eg. grocery store (woolworths), butcher, café, mitre 10 hardware store, a few takeaway food shops and more.
We also have the local pub/restaurant which is a 5 min walk from our house - this rural hotel is been known for some of the best meals in Rural hotels in QLD. We eat there once a week and absolutely love the food. There is also a post office and petrol stations all walking distance....
Our town is a family friendly area with a local primary school also 2kms from our home. We have a lot of children, young families and retirees in our area.
Our home consists of a big back yard which our dog loves. 2 Living rooms, Wifi throughout, Telstra, big pond TV and Netflix, Air-conditioning in the main areas of the home, Gas hot water system, a big 2 garage lock up and more.
We are 30mins away from Eungella National Park and also the famous Cape Hillsborough National Park where every morning at sunrise there is normally always kangaroos resting on the beach.
We are 1 hour drive to Proserpine Whitsunday Coast airport and at the Heart of Airlie Beach. It is lovely to drive to Airlie Beach for a day trip and be home in good time.
There is also a beautiful shop in Proserpine called Colour Me Crazy. Its a ladies shopping heaven!
Mackay is the main town which has everything and takes between 20-25 mins from our house. I work in Mackay so the daily drive I am used to. There is plenty of beaches around Mackay we normally take Bailey to, if not Airlie Beach or Monties Reef Resort a bit further up from Airlie are beautiful to visit, Bailey loves them all. There is soo much to do if your not from around here. We truly are so lucky to live in the Whitsundays and have some amazing destinations right on our door step. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Our number one priority is our Boy Bailey. He is a massive attention seeker. He hates being left alone and would travel with you anywhere. He loves the car, the beach, walking, pretty much anything or anywhere you can take him. He will go!
He is very independent also so cuddly is something he's not really into. My husband seems to think he's cuddly with him but he's always super energetic around me and likes his space if your chilling out. So he picks up on your body language. If you don't like a follower then this might not be the place for you. Bailey will follow you Everywhere. He hates missing out on what your doing. So if you want peace in the bathroom please close the door, he's very rude and will sit there so he knows where you are at all times, a bit like a baby lol...
Our home doesn't need to much maintenance other then the basics, cleaning our home often, mowing the yard when required.
Our dog is an inside dog, he has a doggy door to go in and out as he pleases. He sleeps in his bed beside the couch or on the couch as he pleases. He would love to sleep in the bed with you also if your into that. I find he snores to much for my liking so he sleeps in the living room most of the time.
With that, he does malt hair - a lot... so we do tend to vacuum and clean the couch as required due to his hair. We are very clean people. I'm a bit OCD so can clean more often then my hubby.
I tend to travel a little bit for work or can be busy with my second business so find myself every now and then having a cleaner come in to help pick up some of the main cleaning jobs.
Bailey is also a picky eater - I will most likely make up a bunch of frozen meals for him. But if ever in doubt he loves cooked chicken and rice. With French bull dogs they are very smart and loving but are a difference special kind of breed- they fart, they snore, they make weird sneezing noises, he occasionally vomits (this is normal) he barks a lot at random things. But on this note he is a very good and intelligent dog. He sits, he waits, he does his business outside, he doesn't dig, he doesn't chew furniture, he sleeps a lot because we are out a lot. But when your home he just wants to be with you and loves playing.
We just ask that he is fed, walked and loved
