Hello! We have a 3 bedroom unit in Carnegie, only 10 minutes walk from koornang road shops and 5 minutes from the 67 tram terminal that we would like to be housesat whilst we go up to Queensland (covid allowing!) from 1st Oct until 9th Oct.
Our unit is at the end of the a long driveway so it is very quiet. There is parking for 1 car on the driveway, otherwise there is onstreet parking. We have a backyard and garage (though our car may be in here for the duration - not available for use), wifi is included and freeview TV. We have cooling and heating. There are loads of cafes in Carnegie with the closest by the tram stop, there are also yoga studios, fitness and gyms in carnegie along with a public library and lots of restaurants. Close to Chadstone shopping centre and Southlands, 10 min and 15 min drive respectively. There is also a bus route to Chadstone and Brighton 5 minutes walk away. Carnegie has a train station connected to the city lines.
Pets & farm animals
We have one older male cat, koko and 6 chickens. Koko is a very demanding cat who thinks he is human so he needs lots of cuddles and someone to be around if possible. He is very talkative and social. We allow him outside from the morning until the afternoon if he wishes and if we are not out all day. We don't let him out past 4pm as at
night he is strictly an inside cat. He is the perfect teddy bear, loves being cuddled in bed and spooning! He likes to be brushed and played with too. He needs feeding twice a day and cleaning out the litter tray (checked once a day and full clean once a week).
Our chickens have personality, they need to be let out of their coop in the morning to roam in their fenced off area, this is usually 7.30am. They need the tray of their coop spot cleaned (poo taken out), their water checked and food topped up as required in the morning and they love scraps from the kitchen for morning tea! You will get to enjoy fresh eggs through your stay. We usually check on them a few times a day, maybe give them some seed. At night we sweep up after them and lock them away at 5.30pm (depending on sunset) to keep them safe from foxes. This is essential, even if you go out for the night they need to be locked in their coop with water and food before so that they are safe when night falls.
Usual care of the house, keeping clean and tidy, collection of the mail. Putting out of any rubbish and recycling if necessary.
