About Owner:

Couple or Single (no pets) wanted to collect mail, feed plants, keep an eye on our home and look after our cats and Guinea Fowl whilst we are away. Cat lover, preferably! We are in SE Tasmania on the Tasman Peninsula an hour and 20 mins drive to Hobart and 1 hour to Hobart Airport.

Wildwood, our property is a spacious, comfortable property that enjoys stunning water views over rolling pasture with Mountain backdrop in the distance, a stunning picture-box scene where the light and hues change constantly. The property is partly set to pasture, but mostly surrounded by forest. The property has a Chazelle log fire, panel heaters, reverse cycle air conditioning/heating.

We also have underfloor heating in the ensuite bathroom to main bedroom. The kitchen/dining area is also spacious with quality appliances including a dishwasher. You won't be slumming it here!

I can provide images of the property should you be interested.

The Guinea Fowl are low maintenance. The cats all have a beautiful nature and only need feeding twice a day, plus some brushing and cuddles. We currently have 4 cats, however Pearl our pure white cat who has liver cancer may not be with us come May. Having said that she has defied the vets predictions. She would need medicating (to be updated). Other than these tasks, your time would be your own. The cats will also be okay, providing sufficient food and water is left for them for a night should you wish to stay in Hobart for the night.

We are only live a 10 - 15 minute drive to main facilities. We are also close to the award winning Three Capes Track, much of which can be done in a day walk, and the World Heritage Port Arthur Historic Site. If you love nature and walks, this housesit is perfect for you.

We have NBN and unlimited WI Fi at the property.

Here are a few images of my fur balls: Valentine is the grey (who lost an eye in an accident, he is a sweet natured, super affectionate boy who talks all of the time. He is an indoor cat and could not cope outside. Meg is our fluffy tabby who once she feels safe with you is a ball of love and affection. She is our fearless girl. We do let her out in daylight as she is impossible to keep in, but she must be kept in at night. Pearl as mentioned, Valentine and Meg's mum. She is a great cat - intelligent, sweet natured and affectionate. BUT she is the top cat of the cats ... and can be vicious with the others. Teddy is high maintenance so we may place him in a cattery, depending.
