House/pet sitters (non-smoking couple) for our lovely home in Korumburra, Victoria, Australia
We are a family looking for house sitter/s for approximately 4 weeks in December due to a cancellation by our sitters. Korumburra is located in the scenic rolling foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges in South Gippsland, west of Leongatha and is centrally located to a number of attractions including Wilsons Promontory National Park, Phillip Island, Strzelecki Ranges and the beautiful beaches of Inverloch and Venus Bay. With its rolling green hills and close proximity to beautiful beaches, Korumburra is an ideal holiday stay especially in an Australian summer!
Our Home & Location
Our modern, comfortable home offers wifi, a King sized bed and clean bathroom. Korumburra is surrounded by beautiful country views and restaurants only a short walk/drive away. We have reverse cycle heating & cooling, central heating and a wood heater for cooler nights by the fire! Inverloch is only a 25 minute drive from Korumburra & sits on the coast at the mouth of Anderson Inlet, a protected bay where the Tarwin River enters the Bass Strait. Visitors will enjoy its stunning turquoise colour and at low tide strolling around the western headland to reach the surfing beaches, jetty, boat ramps and parks. Visitors will also enjoy the popular Phillip Island for is furry small penguin parade and also Wilsons Promontory and Venus Bay beaches.
Responsibilities & Pets
We are looking for a non-smoking couple to care, love, feed and walk our two friendly & loving toy poodles whilst we are away & to take care of the garden (watering, mowing). The dogs are used to sleeping on the bed with family so they will expect the same when we are away. We are close to parks, restaurants, shops and live in a beautiful, country environment. We also have some gold fish that require feeding alternative nights (just a small pinch of fish food) and to ensure the shade cloth covers most of the pond. Buses run regularly to and from the Melbourne centre during the week and numerous times on weekends however, it would be advised to have your own car. Four weeks in December (or shorter by arrangement). The dogs don't have any road sense so need to be alert when walking (always on leads). They love the hose and go absolutely mad when you water the garden so best to make sure they are inside when watering! Non smoking applications only apply - police check, references (personal and professional) and a copy of your passport/flight tickets please.
