Pet sitting & House sitting job in South Eastern Victoria
South Eastern Victoria - Lakes & Wilderness
We are seeking a semi-retired /retired single/couple sitter/s (sorry no children) who is/are also a dog lover who will care for our dachshund dog (Ebony) and our beautiful garden. Our "sausage" dog is our primary focus, she thinks she's human (so lives and sleeps inside) HOWEVER we do have realistic house rules for her around her eating pattern, walking routine and due to her shape should remain on the ground/floor at all times (she is heavy built with a very long spine so this breed cannot jump up/down or climb), carers are asked to respect our "rules" so not lifting her onto your knees etc - her long back cannot take the weight load stress. She is trained as an indoors /outdoors dog who looks after herself by coming in and out independently throughout the day/night.
Our other important focus are our beautiful gardens, depending upon the weather some plantings and vegie patches may require watering also gravel walkways require raking and removal of dog droppings (if wet weather)
Our home is in "as new" condition so we know you will take care of it as if it's your own. This is a non smoking property. We ask our sitters to strip the bed and wash all linen/towels and put on the clothes line prior to your departure on the last day.
We live in a very quiet court environment but only minutes away from the Gippsland lakes system and 10 - 15 minutes from Lakes Entrance or Bairnsdale for shopping. We love this area as it's such a tranquil and surrounded by natural environments with lots of walking trails, fresh air, water and bush activities ... lots of fishing spots, etc all the things you enjoy are up here waiting for you.
Airbnb reviews .........
Desma and Peter are great host finding the right balance between making you comfortable and giving you privacy. The house is comfortable and very close to Lakes entrance. Breakfast is basic - toast and cereals. We stayed here for a night and had no issues.
We had a fabulous stay with desma and peter and their beautiful puppy ebony! They were so friendly and welcoming.
Lovely and clean accommodation with friendly hosts. We arrived later than we had expected and Desma was very understanding. Thanks for an easy overnight stay!
Fantastic set up for our family, a warm welcome given and privacy provided - Desma and Peter were lovely hosts. We met their lovely, very gentle dog Ebony, who was perfect for our dog-wary 8 year old. We wished we could have stayed longer on our way to Melbourne but it was the perfect stopover for us
It was a nice quiet house with a friendly dog The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The guest area had everything we needed. It was great to NOT have to stay in Lake's Entrance. The local pub (Bruthen) was great for dinner.
