Pet sitting & House sitting job in South Coast
Our home is located on almost 3 acres in a rural-residential area just outside of Nowra. We are minutes from the amenities of town, and only 20 mins to the superb beaches of Jervis Bay.
What we offer you:
Our beautiful 4 bed, 2 bath home in a lovely, quiet setting. It has a renovated chef's kitchen (including espresso machine), NBN, air conditioning, and Netflix. Outside there's a spot in the garage for your car, and plenty of space to park a caravan/motorhome/boat.
You'll have fresh eggs daily, hopefully some veges from the garden, and you're welcome to borrow the bikes or golf clubs.
We have great neighbours, and family and friends who live nearby who can help out if anything goes awry.
What we need you to do for us:
Our priority is for the care of our animals so, first and foremost, we need an animal lover. You also need to be non-smoker(s).
Hank the dog (Weimaraner, 8yo, 44kg), is a people person, and thrives on attention and company. He needs someone who will be home every night, will give lots of pats and scratches, and who like having a shadow follow them around! He's well-mannered and pretty easy going. He wants to be with people, and is an inside dog when there is someone home. He may also be a little scared of being alone in the dark...
Lycan the horse (Thoroughbred, 14yo, 16.3hh), will require twice daily feeding, regular rug changing, and his water refreshed. Being a big boy, we require someone who has experience and confidence with horses. He is a friendly fellow, and enjoys a scratch, some company, and the occasional piece of liquorice or a carrot. He and Hank aren't always friends.
Speckle, Doris, Raven, Flower, Jasmine Tap Shoe, and Butterfly (chooks, mixed ages) have a large enclosure and will just need daily checking for eggs, and topping up of their feed and water, and the clean out of their house. They get the kitchen scraps and occasional treat, and are friendly (especially at food time).
Our home is on 3 acres, but is very easy care. Apart from looking after the animals, we would ask that our plants are watered, mail is checked and the bins put out.
Please note that the dates include the day prior to our departure.
Our home is not appropriate for anyone wishing to bring their own dog as we only have rural fencing.
