House & Pet Sitting (one friendly pup and a slightly anti-social cat)
Hi! We are looking to do a couple of overseas trips in the next 12 months and are looking for some potential house/pet sitters that may like to spend some time in Toowoomba.
Toowoomba is a lovely city, sitting on top of the Great Dividing Range about 1.5 hours from Brisbane (Queensland's Capital City). It has an airport offering direct flights to Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns & Townsville. It's a great location for the arts, with an amazing theatre (The Empire Theatre) as well as some great restaurants, coffee shops and cafes. It's well serviced for shopping with everything you could need!...
We ideally are after someone who's happy to look after our home, our pets, and the pool (fairly low maintenance).
One of the periods is over Christmas - so if you're looking at spending Christmas somewhere different - maybe this is a great opportunity for you! + More info
Our Home & Location
Our home is a 4 bedroom (plus office) home....
You will have access to everything you need (including the solar heated swimming pool!). We will set you up with your own bedroom (and a spare room) and access to unlimited NBN Internet, Foxtel, Netflix, etc for your stay.
The house has reverse cycle (hot & cold) air-conditioning in the living room and bed rooms.
We are located in Rangeville on the Eastern side of the City. There is an IGA Supermarket, cafe, doctors, etc within walking distance of our home.
There's potentially room in the driveway to park a van as well if you're looking for a break from tripping around. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Bella is easy to please! She has a pen for outside/night time and does come inside (in the family room/tiled area only). She is friendly, loves to play and have cuddles if you like. She's good to walk (but make sure she's on her lead/harness as she will possibly take off in true Beagle form!)
Benson .... is certainly NOT A LAP CAT! He likes to be with you ... but don't try to cuddle him! He is purely an inside cat (to protect both the birdlife and himself!) and keeps to himself pretty much. He sleeps in the laundry (but during the day happily lounges around in the sun!)
