Hi, We are a semi retired couple, Laurie still plays a part in our communications business, I am a retired Radiographer. Our son lives next door but his family's work commitments mean we would like a house sitter to mind our cats and dogs

Home & location

We live slightly rurally, close to town with a small lifestyle avocado orchard and 6 pet sheep as well as the cat and dog. Have access to the river with kayaks etc and the beaches are readily accessible.

  • High-speed WiFi
  • Family friendly
  • Beach
  • City
  • Countryside


Our greyhounds would like two walks per day approx. 30 mins morning and afternoon. Both cat and dogs are fed twice a day . Jake and Nelly are fine left alone for 4-5 hrs but would like company at other times for toileting and play etc
