  • Description


    We are looking for a housesitter for a 3 week period. We would expect you to be at home during most days. That says you can do daytrips but sleep at home. While you are at home you are free to do what you like (reading a book, internet available, relax...). You will stay in our country house with 3 bedrooms and a garden. We do not expect you to do any work in the house or garden except very little occasional watering of some potplants. We are looking for a person who likes cats and will feed them two times a day. Your help would be just to be here and relax together with 4 wounderful cats. Our place will be just for you and you have to look after yourselfe for most of the time. Our friends will come over for a tea or if you like take you for a daytrip.
    Kuranda is only 30min away from Cairns. We have a bus that picks you up on demand from our doorstep.
    Kuranda is a very popular tourist destination with lots of rainforest, walkways, rivers and creeks. It's a 2 min walk from the house down to the Barron river
    This offer is great for nature lovers and people who want to chill out.
