Acreage property in the Gold Coast Hinterland
We are keen to find animal-loving house sitters for short-term stays (4 or 5 days to a week) in the main but may also require house sitters for longer periods. We are both professionals. I (Kate) work in Higher Education and my husband (Simon) works in the construction industry. He is currently working in Adelaide and we require house and animal sitters so that I can occasionally join him there for long weekends.
Our Home & Location
Our house is built on acreage in the beautiful Gold Coast Hinterland, some ten kilometres from the quaint township of Canungra. It is the perfect place to relax! The house is a three bedroom/one bathroom property, although we also have a separate self-contained cabin in the woods (with spectacular views), which can sleep two people. We have a large deck and a swimming pool and it is a perfect location for those who enjoy the outdoor life. On our doorstep is the beautiful Lamington National Park and all the attractions of the Gold Coast are but a car journey away. Please note that potential house sitters must have their own transport as there is no public transport. This is a very friendly little community and previous visitors and house sitters have all enjoyed the peace and tranquility that it has to offer.
Responsibilities & Pets
The main responsibilities would be the care of the animals (feeding and checking their water). The cows and goats are reasonably self-sufficient but the dogs, chooks and fish need feeding daily. The dogs are not working dogs and are VERY spoilt! They enjoy mooching around the property but are essentially house dogs!
