Katoomba, New South Wales, Australia

Our family is looking for house/dog sitters for our home in Katoomba, New South Wales, Australia. We are 1.5 hours drive West of Sydney in a popular tourist destination in the Blue Mountains which is a World Heritage National Park with many great bush walks & beautiful mountain scenery.
Dates are from February 16th (or a day earlier would be good) for approximately 4 weeks, we are at this point uncertain exactly what date we will return so you would need to be a little flexible. Our house is under a contract of sale and we are travelling interstate to look for our next home.
We will ask our house sitters to feed our two dogs (a border collie & a red kelpie) once a day and to be around for some of every day so that our dogs don’t start straying. They are active, very friendly dogs & some ball throwing will be required 🙂
We are on half an acre on the edge of the bush. We don’t have fences but the dogs don’t leave the property unless left for long periods too often. They sleep inside.
We also have 6 hens that lay eggs daily, they need locking up at night & letting out in the morning due to fox activity at night. We will be moving them on to new homes in the near future when we move interstate so we could do this sooner if you felt this was too much commitment. The eggs are pretty good though!
Our property is very private but only 20 min. walk to the train station. Trains take 2 hours to Sydney. Katoomba has all the facilities you need, supermarkets, cinema & hospital very close, cafes, restaurants, etc.
We require non-smoking, very tidy people who will keep the house clean & the garden/plants watered. The house will be fully furnished & all utilities paid for, including phone & internet, in exchange we will expect the place to be clean & the dogs happy on our return & the weeds kept under control somewhat. Preference to someone who can stay the whole time & is flexible on the length of their stay. No car is included but there are a lot of cheap cars around in the area if you require one or the trains are good.

Our house is spacious & comfortable. We built it ourselves over the last 10 years. Kids love it here, there is a lot of space for them to explore & play outdoors & indoors. We have 3 bedrooms a spacious office & a studio. We only have a king size bed & 2 singles but lots of sofas and good inflatable beds. We have a TV, WiiU, PS3 lots of board games & books & good internet.
If you think you may be a good fit for us please msg me
