Great house, close to the city
We require reliable and trustworthy housesitters to look after our home and care for our 2 dogs while we are away. We are looking for a housesitter that can commit to looking after our pets and enjoy the benefits of the hard work that we have put into several years of renovating a beautiful old Victorian house in a fantastic location.
Our Home & Location
Our home is located in the inner west of Melbourne. It's a large old Victorian house that we have put a lot of hard work into renovations for the last 5+ years and we are very proud of our efforts. The house has 2 large bedrooms and the studio at the rear also has self contained accomodation with an outdoor kitchen. We are located in a very convenient spot with walking distance to 3 train stations and only 4 stops into the CBD of Melbourne. Locally you'll be only a couple minutes walk away with an array of bars, restaurants and shops. The adjacent suburb of Footscray with an abundance of Vietnamese, Indian and Ethiopian restaurants as well as the Footscray markets is just down the road. Also walking distance or 1 train stop is Yarraville with more restaurants and bars and the famous art deco Sun Theatre. Williamstown and the beach is only 15 minutes away.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have 2 dogs - Tanner, an 13 year old terrier X and Buddy, a 3 1/2 year old Australian shepherd X. Both are used to a fair bit of our company so ideally we are looking for someone that will spend significant time at our house and walk the dogs each day. The local area has some great walking paths and parks. We are also looking for someone who has an interest in gardening and be able to do some watering. Other pets are our long tailed finches and goldfish that require little care.
