NB Unfortunately, our selected housesitters have had to return home so we are readvertising our housesit position.
Our solid brick Edwardian home is in Coburg/Brunswick. It is close to 3 forms of public transport and there is space for off street parking for one car. There are two designated bedrooms, a large front sitting room, study, separate lounge and kitchen/dining area. There are two bathrooms (the second one is being renovated so only the toilet and basin can be used in that one at the moment). The kitchen has gas facilities and a duo dishwasher. There is central gas heating.
There are lawns and gardens at the front and back, as well as a vegetable garden. There is a water tank in the backyard as well as a BBQ and outdoor dining.
There is internet access if required.

Your responsibilities:
Garden - to water, mulch & weed the garden, mow the lawns. As this will be at the end of winter, this won't require much attention.
Mail - to collect mail, sort & inform us of any bills; dispose of junk mail
Gas & electricity - as you are caring for our dog, we will pay the electricity and gas bills.
Telephone - to pay for telephone calls
Rubbish - to ensure that rubbish bins are placed on the kerbside, to be emptied regularly
Cleaning - to vacuum carpets & clean hard floor surfaces regularly; dust surfaces regularly
Cars - to run/charge our cars every couple of weeks so that batteries don't go flat

We would prefer a couple or single person and no pet, as it may not be compatible with our dog.
Someone who is at home much of the time would be our ideal sitter as our dog is used to having someone around much of the time.

References required, and a police check if available.

Pets & farm animals

We have a delightful 3 year old Cocker Spaniel, Juno, who is an inside/outside dog. She will need to be walked and brushed each day, and her poo picked up! She will also need some extra grooming & washing over this time period. She is obedience trained and walks well on lead.
