Pet sitting & House sitting job in South
South - South East
We live approx 1 hr travel time (80 kms) south of Adelaide between Mount Compass & Goolwa on 175 acres of rolling countryside on the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia.
Our beautiful country property has amazing views of Goolwa, Lake Alexandrina and the Coorong. Popular seaside towns of Victor Harbor, Port Elliot, Middleton & Goolwa are only 10-20 mins away. A multitude of wineries on your doorstep - McLaren Vale, Finnis & Langhorne Creek.
We need a housesitter to care for 3 horses, some cattle, Raffy, our quirky and energetic 20 month old, Lagotto dog & Charlie, a cute 4 yo Maltese/poodle cross.
The horses will require checking and feeding twice daily, therefore experience with horses is a definite advantage. The cattle will need checking regularly, especially if they are calving. Farm experience would be a bonus, ie ability to competently operate a ride on mower and/or other machinery if required.
Our house has a lot of natural light & is clean, modern & comfortable. One bedroom & a bathroom/toilet are available for your use if you don't have your own van or would prefer to live in our house.
Panoramic, expansive views of the surrounding countryside are ever changing and you will enjoy privacy, peace & quiet as well as security behind solar electric gates.
Creature comforts: reverse cycle aircon, large screen TV, Foxtel, modern kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, gas hotplates and oven. House is on rainwater.
Plenty of room to park your caravan if required.
The climate here is generally several degrees cooler in summer than Adelaide and the popular seaside town of Victor Harbor is only 20 minutes away. Mount Compass and Goolwa are the closest towns, approx 10 mins away.
We look forward to meeting our prospective housesitters. Our preference is for them to be active, mature aged couples or a single person, experienced with horses and cattle.
If you have the desire, ability & experience to look after our animals & property (whilst enjoying a country lifestyle), we look forward to hearing from
Happy to answer any questions you may have, so please feel free to call me any time.
