We need a house sitter

Central Coast - Bundaberg & Wide Bay


Christmas in Poona

Home on 1 acre and two pussy cats sitting!

A lovely modern 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home. Plenty of room to park the caravan or motor home (self contained preferred) on the bitumen drive or in the garden.

Poona is on the Cooloola Coast between Hervey Bay (an hour by car), close to Maryborough (37 km) the home of Mary Poppins, close to Tin Can Bay (50 km) and 70 km to Rainbow Beach and its coloured sands. Have the boat in the water to Fraser Island (the world's largest sand island) or fishing in 5 minutes.

The home is only 8 years old. Ride on lawn mowing, whipper snipping, mulching, gardening, watering and pussy feeding and grooming is required. There is bore water for the garden and tank water for the home and your caravan.

We have 2 friendly cats, Moet and Sooty. They have breakfast and tea and both need brushing.

We would prefer a fit, healthy couple with a large self contained caravan or motor home, that they can live in.

There are 9 steep steps up to the kitchen, living and entertaining area.

Two bicycles are available for a ride around the community. There are many walking tracks. We are 3 streets back from the beach and back onto a forest.

The community offers Tai Chi Mondays, Yoga Tuesday and Thursdays, Boot scooting Wednesdays and Craft Fridays all at the Community Hall. Friday night dinner is served and the bar open to meet the locals, once Covid 19 restrictions are now less severe. There is a small shop at the caravan park and a free swap library at the hall.

Coles, Aldi and Woolworths and Doctors are in Maryborough 25 minutes away.

Poona is a great fishing village!!! A lovely peaceful and relaxing spot. Midges can be a problem of an evening. We have a fantastic rural fire brigade of which I am a member.

The modern home stays very clean with just a vacuum, floor and bathroom clean and mop and dust before we come home. You have free Wifi and national calls on home phone. There is a Double office that you may use.. Upstairs there is a kitchen, dinning and large smart TV, On the veranda upstairs there is a large outdoor dinning/ entertaining area and wrap around veranda, There are lots of birds and kangaroos, and wild life, for the camera enthusiast. Take care on the road in as there are beautiful brumbies in the pine plantations. We have home sat ourselves so know what is required and expected.

We would love a couple who loves and adores cats, gardening, house sitting and seeing new places.

We can be away 2 months if that is your preference. Poona has very friendly locals with lots of activities at the Community Centre. We have great neighbors.

Enjoy a relaxing holiday at Poona.

From first contact, requirements were clear and precise. Apon arrival we were presented with a written list of contact details and outline of required duties. Also brochures were included showing local events and interests in the local area. The home is in a small community at the end of a single road in and out. Due to fire conditions this was a concern. As there was a total fire ban mowing was not an option, which was disappointing, as we prefer the home owner to return with no yard work ... MORE
