Housesit: 6 weeks Mandurah WA Australia
We live in a beautiful part of Western Australia, the house is situated on over half and acre with ocean views.
The gardens are established and a lot of it is a woodland type garden which is self maintaining.Although the meandering pathways which wander through the garden need regular sweeping (good exercise) Some is more formal but mostly easy care. The lawns are mowed regularly by a paid mowerman.
We have no pets except 3 fish in a fishpond out in the garden. These look after themselves and live on insects etc which have the misfortune to fly or fall in. The garden supports a large number of lovely birds. The house is two story ( the top section will be closed off while we are away) and the downstairs is easily maintained as carpet is restricted to the 3 bedrooms and study and a small living room, the rest is quarry tiles. A very large country kitchen with all mod cons is a delight to work in if you are that way inclined (as I am) and the outdoor living area is huge with all weather living area complete with an outdoor kitchen including fridge and sink for great outdoor living and entertaining.
Mandurah is famous for its crabs which are easily caught from a boat or by walking along the estuary foreshore shallows with scoop nets. We have a gas crabcooker which gets plenty of use in the summer months.
The ocean is close for fishing, walking and swimming.There is also a sealed walking/bike track along the estuary foreshore. There is all the usual entertainment in Mandurah, which is 14 kms from Dawesville, performing arts where artists both local and international and from the Eastern States perform; movies numerous restaurants and cafes, fabulous fresh seafood, sporting clubs of all kinds and of course the estuary, river and ocean providing plently of wonderful tourist type drives.
Tourist launches operate out of Mandurah and a pleasant afternoon can be spent touring the magnificent estuary and canal developments viewing multi million dollar houses. The area is obviously a tourist hotspot, but our corner of it is relatively quiet and very pleasant, and makes for a wonderful life style
