We need a house sitter

Northern Territory - Katherine


We are driving down to Adelaide for Christmas and need someone reliable to look after our property. Our 3 bed house is on a secure 5 acre block surrounded by 150 mango trees in a peaceful area of Mataranka. It has a large veranda at the front. Full air conditioning, Wi- Fi and Foxtel on the TV. We require someone to live in to look after and feed our dogs and two horse, Dogs are exercised morning and evening within the property. Plants on the veranda need watering regularly and sprinklers need to be turned on in the afternoon to water the grass for a few hours using water from our bore. House water is rainwater from our large external tanks. Mataranka is famous for it's thermal pools and Elsey National Park through which the Roper River runs. The main shopping centre of Katherine is one hours drive away. Mataranka has 3 servo's, a store, supermarket, clinic, post office, library, workshop, museum. It is a quiet little town in the wet season which has a tropical climate. We have wonderful neighbours and friends who also have similar sized properties so if you encounter any problems they will come and help you.
