We need a house sitter

South Eastern Victoria - Lakes & Wilderness

Wendy and Rick

The house has 3 bedrooms, open living dining , an office and conservatory. It has a passive solar design, so in cold weather the warmth is generated by the conservatory. Managed well, ( we'll explain how), it is unusual to need electric heating. It is expected that the house will be kept clean and tidy, that the plants in the conservatory are watered, the lawn is mowed and weeds are controlled in the vegetable garden. The house is on a 1 acre block and there is a large lawn, but it can all be mowed using a ride on mower.

We have solar panels for electricity generation, so ask that whenever possible, that the dishwasher and washing machine be used in daylight hours.
You will be welcome to eat anything that is ready in the garden. Apart from the vegetable garden, everything in th rest of the extensive garden is edible. Herbs, fruit trees...

The house is located in a very quiet cul-de-sac and all the neighbours are delightful and helpful.

Being on top of a hill, there are good views and stunning sunsets.
There are excellent bicycle paths nearby and there is a safe route to The main shopping centre, 3 km away.

Dogs or other pets are welcome but must remain outside or in the garage. No animals in the house ever.

Reviews (1)
Wendy and Rick were really friendly and helpful and gave us contacts for a bike riding group abd a Spanish group. The garden was really nice and we enjoyed caring fir it and sitting on the decking having our coffee or food when the weather permitted just enjoying the garden, nature and views in a lovely rural setting. Great biking or walking alongside the river and everyone was very friendly and welcoming
