We need a house sitter

Hunter Valley - West Lake Macquarie


We are a retired couple living on waterfront reserve at Bonnells Bay, part of Lake Macquarie, with a 4 yr old dog (lab/kelpie) and 15 month female cat. Both live inside as no fence around our house, so we need a sitter who is able to be around during the day to let the dog out for a toilet and some exercise.
5-6hrs is the max time we ever leave our dog inside though overnight she easily lasts 10 hrs.

Ideally we are seeking either one person or a couple who are retired or work from home as our lab is very social and both pets are used to having company.
We live in a 2 storey house with extensive water views, with all modern conveniences, aircon, big TV, dishwasher, wifi etc, enclosed wood fire, sunroom for watching sunsets and the abundant birdlife, garage space for a car and enough room for a van beside the house.
Obviously we need sitters who are respectful of our property and are caring with our furbabies, so will ask to see references.

Please contact us if this sounds like it could work for you or if you have any queries.

We spent a lovely week with Indie and Chloe in a beautiful location. The whole house and pet sit was effortless, and we were greeted warmly but all the neighbours. We enjoyed entertaining Indie with daily ball throwing and walks and watching Chloe be a cat !!. Paul and Megan were very welcoming, and we really enjoyed our stay.

Indi and Chloe are so well loved and cared for by Paul and Megan and this showed through in their personalities They are beautiful gentle animals to be around Indi loves to play ball and to go swimming in the lake She is very well trained and comes when called and wants to just sit and be near you and can't get enough pats and cuddles They have the best life living in Bonnell Bay Thankyou Paul and Megan for choosing me to housesit in your beautiful home

A lovely couple Megan and Paul who made us welcome Indie and Chloe were a pleasure to look after they kept us and themselves entertained The home is in a great location with plenty to do and see in Lake Macquarie region We definitely recommend this house sit if the opportunity arises Thanks again Greg and Angela
