More Information

Active, practical, mature woman with a small, short-haired dog. Quiet, non-smoker, tidy and clean. Former acreage owner. Experienced with dogs, cats, and chooks. Competent but unenthusiastic gardener. Okay with lawn and ride-on mowers. I work online, so I’m usually home for most of the day.

Why am I doing this? I'm trying out a new lifestyle, having moved back ashore after my latest stint as a live aboard sailor. My small caravan is comfortable, and home for now. With this set up I am independent, except for the bathroom/laundry.

My house-sitting experience includes lifestyle acreage, farms, and urban houses. I've cared for dogs, cats, birds, and livestock, and dealt with pumps, gates, fences and irrigation.

That's what we offer. In return we need room for the van, reasonable proximity to a town, Telstra reception, and a safe place for Bodi. A little-dog fence is preferable, but unfenced is okay if you're well away from the road. Bodi is intimidated by large dogs, but okay with friendly small ones, especially females. I have looked after cats, but I'm not able to cuddle your cat because I am allergic to them.
