We are looking ideally for a couple who will be home most of the time for a home & pet sit for our 2 x 14 year old dogs in the beach suburb of Coogee. Rex & Nikita are old, they sleep a lot. They will need to be taken up the stairs, over the driveway for a wee/poo regularly, definitely first thing in the morning & last thing at night.
The dogs currently sleep in our bedroom (long story) and while they sleep through most nights - the little one even puts herself to bed early - the bigger one Rex, about once a week, seems to need to go out and will 'ask' someone. Note this is infrequent, he sleeps well the rest of the time.
Nikita is a little jack russell (4.5kg?) who needs to be carried on some of the steeper or darker stairs. Her eyesight is not so good, her hearing not so good, she has had a few tough things happen to her in her life. She loves a lap if it is on offer, else she will curl up on her cushion.
Rex (medium size boxer x jack russell x silky) will attach himself to one of you like a shadow, happy just to be in your company.
They can't handle long walks. The Dog park is 2 blocks away and that walk there is usually enough for them.
They are used to have some one home most of the time, especially since covid. They can probably be left for a few hours for a swim or a dinner out. Rex may get anxious if left too long, unless he's exhausted ;)
It's a 'house' type building that is actually 3 units. This unit (Unit3) is at the rear of the building, the quietest. We have an airbnb downstairs , however we may have friend looking after that who may use the other Unit, #1 occasionally
It is best for fit people who don't mind hills & stairs. We are on the hill on the south side of Coogee . There's a view, It is walking distance to most things, the famous Wileys baths, the beach, the coastal track, and yet in a quieter area away from Arden street. Aircon. Wifi.
We should be able to offer you a car space. We hardly use the cars much as local grocer is walking distance. Any caravans or the like will have to left on Rainbow street. Our driveway is narrow and steep, one way with limited turning room
This holiday of ours is subject to borders opening & the 'do not travel' for Canada being lifted! We have flights booked & deposit paid on accommodation and will be making every effort to go on this holiday!
For reviews of us and notes on the location, see "twopalmscoogee" - that is for the airbnb which is not the unit you will be house-sitting, just noting for info about us & the location.
