About this house sitting position in Downer

We are looking for someone to housesit for 20 December-18 January, or thereabouts, while we take a christmas-new year holiday. Our travel is subject to COVID travel restrictions not being re-imposed, fingers crossed. The house is 10 minutes walk to Dickson swimming pool & shopping centre, with a hammock in the spacious backyard. We have three chickens who ideally are let out each morning and locked away each night, although they can be left to roam their coop if you want a weekend away. They are not prolific but you should get an egg every day or so. The lawn and a few plants would also benefit from watering about once a week (most things are on an automatic watering system). There are a few veggies to pick & eat.

We have a toddler so there are toys and books suitable for tiny tots (as well as plenty of books for you!)

Please note we don’t have a TV (although with internet you can tune in to iview on a laptop / tablet).

Please get in touch if you'd like a holiday in Canberra, for those few weeks over summer.
