Jimboomba thanks all caring wanderers who offered to help

I would like to thank all the lovely people who contacted us regarding our sit even though most were unable to help at such short notice.

We are in awe of the multitude of caring wanderers who have made Housesitting a way of life and who add so much value to those who use their services.

As my father became ill recently we were left without a sitter so we thank all the wonderful sitters who took the time to respond and I apologise I have not got back to all of you.

Please accept this as a personal thankyou and I sincerely hope we get to meet at some stage in the future.
Kindest regards,
Deb & Keith (Jimboomba)

House sit details:
Jimboomba Brisbane Logan City QLD

We would love a mature experienced couple to mind our resort style acreage property, 2 cats and 11mth old toy poodle while we are away for 4 weeks from 14th October.

We are on 5 acres in Jimboomba and just 2 minutes to the township with supermarkets, cafes, takeaways, library, chemists, etc. 3 acres of our property is just an empty back paddock which requires vitually no maintenance and the remaining 2 acres consists of a 4 bedroom scandanavian designed home (lot's of glass) and home office, 4 bathrooms, inground pool, sauna, gym, dam and pretty gardens which are fairly low maintenance except for the rose garden which actually requires a little work at the moment so garden lovers would be most welcome here.

If you are a handyman that would be great too as there are a few little jobs that we haven't had time to get to yet. Our baby (poodle) doesn't really require walking as he gets a lot of excercise running around the yard but he loves to play fetch and really enjoys outings in the car but this is not necessary if you don't like the idea. He is used to staying home by himself when we're at work. If you think this position might suit please contact us with your details and experience. We'd love to meet you

Sitter pkcarron experiences the culture of the small village of Sayulita Mexico

"I would like to comment on a house/pet sit I just returned from in Sayulita Mx.

Seven weeks in a beautiful part of Mexico even in the low season was wonderful! I commend the house owners, Roger and Summer for their hospitality.

I was able to finish a book while there as well as see many of the nearby sights.

I also salute this site for providing this venue for people such as I who want to experience a culture not just observe.

I indeed experienced the small village of Sayulita, inter reacting with local people and seeing all through their eyes.
Thanks House Carers! Pamela

The main bedroon has an ensuite and the bathroom has a spa bath.The house has ducted gas heating and ducted evaporative cooling. Window locks, deadlocks and security doors are installed.

There are bus stops at the end of the street with regular services to Woden and Tuggeranong. We are seeking a housesitter/s who will care for and enjoy the comfort of our home for three months and who will also give a lot of time, care and affection to the cat who owns the house and us.

Hi Ian. I am writing to tell you that we are delighted with Housecarers as housesitters.

We have had so many housesits and been contacted by so many people direct to ask us to housesit that we have hardly been home since before Xmas 2007.

At present we are housesitting in Nelson and then have another one in Christchurch in May. We are then housesitting in Marlborough for 6 weeks.It has given us the opportunity to meet some great people who we conti nue to keep in touch with and to see areas of our country we haven't seen before.

We now hope to be able to obtain housesits in Europe again later this year and into the next. We will definitely rejoin when our subscription expires.Thank you for a great service,we have recommended it to many of our friends who are envious of us doing these housesits. Regards Ed and Julie

Why Does My Cat Pee Everywhere?

Whether your cat is old or young, male or female, anxious or mellow, he or she can get the idea that peeing anywhere but the litterbox is a good thing. Many frustrated humans in the past and present have tried nearly everything to figure out why the cat does this – and, of course, to solve the problem.
