Would just like to say Thankyou for your site.
As a first time user, it is wonderful to know that a service like this exists.
I was in a real dilema about leaving my dogs in kennels and the cost involved when a friend just happened to mention getting a housesitter and here I am.
Housesit: Mothar Mountain, southeast of Gympie Queensland Australia
We have a 9 acre property which is 15 minutes drive from Gympie township,40 minutes drive to Noosa or Tin Can Bay about 50 minutes Drive to Rainbow Beach and 2 hours drive North of Brisbane. We have 2 very old dogs, a German Shepperd and a Rottweiller, both very friendly, who need very little looking after but do need someone to be with them for company while we are away.
We also have 6 free range chickens that will need to be tended to. We have a few garden beds that will need watering and the lawns will need mowing,some with a ride on mower and some with a hand motor mower. Half of our water supply is pumped from our dam and the rest is rainwater.
There is not a great deal of work to do around the property so there will be plenty of time to take in some of the sights in the area and just enjoy the peace and tranquility. We have lots of birdlife to enjoy also.
