We need a house sitter

Tasmania - Hobart


We have a modern energy efficient off grid home on a small well fenced acreage, which we built in 2016. We have lovely views over the Huon river,10 minutes to Cygnet, 15 to Huonville and 55 to Hobart. Our house needs very little effort, the off grid system provides our power,plenty for lights, TV, desk top etc. ( which we do remember to turn off when not In use). we have tanks for our rain water supply, hot water is by solar tubes and instant gas, we have gas cooking and a wood heater with plenty of wood if needed. Wifi connections are good and mobile coverage is reliable. We do not have a land line.
It is a beautiful part of the Huon Valley with good neighbours nearby. Cygnet has a good size IGA, butchers, post office, library, hardware store, and several coffee shops and small gift /homewares shops. Plus two pubs which both do meals. Also a yacht club and marina. Huonville is a larger version with an active rowing community at Franklin. The Huon River is a popular waterway for rowers, kayakers and sailors.
Our two dogs are a 13 yo red kelpie and a young 18/12 kelpie collie. Both very friendly and part of the family I.e they come inside! They are best when they have walks most days or a run in one of the dog parks in Huonville or Cygnet. They are OK to be left if you are out for the day but we would not want them to be left over night.
Our garden is very new and will only require watering if very dry. Garden water is sourced from our large dam through a series of taps.
