We need a house sitter

Adelaide - Adelaide Hills


We are Nic and Ben, and we live on 17 acres, near Birdwood in the Adelaide Hills. We have 2 dogs, 16 chooks, sheep, cattle and 2 horses that need checking daily and feeding as required.
Our 3 year old house has a wood burner heating for those cold winter nights we get here in the Hills, and ducted evaporative air con for those hot summer days.
For the safety of my chooks and other lovestock, we prefer a sitter without pets please. Birds may be considered though.
Our place would be best suited to a couple or a single as we don't have kids beds for families etc.

Birdwood is just 30 minutes from Tea Tree Plaza, Gawler, the Barossa Valley and Mount Barker and Adelaide CBD is only a quick trip down the freeway. The town itself has a small population of around 1500 residents and is the home to the National Motor Museum, a must visit for car enthusiasts! There is also a small supermarket, a chemist, post office and the Blumberg hotel pub. There are lots of other small towns within a 15 minute drive that also have good pubs, as well as local wineries and distilleries. Mount Crawford forest is only 5 minutes up the road and is perfect for walks and picnics.
We often have native visitors through our property including koalas, kangaroos and a wide range of birdlife.
