Mature responsible housesitter required in older suburb Rivervale Perth WA
I have a 3 bedroom older style house 10 minutes from the city, with a jungle type garden,which I need to have looked after several times a year from 1-4 weeks at a time as I go down south.
Our Home & Location
Older style of house with high ceilings and wooden floorboards. Lots of art and pictures on the walls-definitely not minimalist.Because there is a lot of collectibles, it is not a house suited for children. There is also a lot of dust around so not suitable for those with allergies. The laundry is outside.
Close to the city, air con and Foxtel, monitored security, near local shops and a big centre....
Access to the bus is close by. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Some watering of plants in pots, fill birdbaths, put security alarm on when leaving the house. I would prefer a mature person with a good sense of responsibility.I would prefer a keen gardener who can recognise when plants are stressed and the reticulation isn't working. Even though I have reticulation, sometimes things can go wrong.
There are two willywagtails to feed every morning with meal worms....
There are three chooks in the backyard that require daily feeding and nest cleaning etc. The bonus is that you will have fresh eggs to eat.
Not suitable for anyone with major bee allergies as I have a beehive that doesn't require any maintenance.
A Perth based sitter with an alternative residence would be able to sit several times a year.
At the moment, I am growing plants in pots for our community garden and I need someone who is preferably home sometimes during the day and is plant aware to notice if the small pots are drying out (they will be under sprinklers). + More info
