AUSTRALIA

CAT/HOUSESITTER NEEDED in Newstead (Brisbane) over the
Christmas/New Year’s period from December 26, 2012 through
January 6, 2013. Our place is centrally located in Newstead, on
the border of New Farm and Teneriffe. Close to James Street,
shops, parks and public transport. We have a modern two bedroom,
two bathroom ground floor apartment with an outside courtyard. We
are looking for a cat lover who can look after two beautiful
spoilt cats, Moscow (a three-year-old male Russian Blue) and
Ollie (a three-year-old year old male Birman). We require an
attentive person who is able to spend some time with the cats and
attend to a few of their 'quirks'. You don't need to be home all
day but you do need to interact, play with them and give them a
bit of love when you are home. They are mostly indoor cats, but
do enjoy a frolic outside a couple of times a day to let off some
steam. Duties include feeding the cats twice a day (they are well
behaved at meal times and will sit for their food) and cleaning
out their litter trays. Ollie is a friendly, beautiful and loving
cat but has a history of inappropriate urination – so the
housesitter would need to be mindful of this and ensure the
litter trays are clean, bedroom doors closed when out, and couch
cushions removed when not in use. No real house maintenance is
required - collecting of mail, and just generally keeping the
house clean and tidy. This would be suitable for a student,
professional, or a retired single or couple. If you are looking
for modern apartment in a lovely and centrally located area, and
are willing to spend a bit of time ensuring our cats are content,
then this place would suit you perfectly. Please note that our
apartment is also available on December 25 PM if you would like
to move in before Boxing Day. Please call XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX or

mentally challenged after a bad fall 15 years ago. A woman over
50, non-smoker, who speaks Spanish, with independent income, who
is self sufficient, independent, active, in excellent health and
with vegetarian type of lifestyle, is essential. I am a busy real
estate woman with limited time to always assist to my
husband’s needs. A minimum commitment of 6 to 12 months is
needed. My home is located on famous surfing beaches where you
can enjoy leisure walks, beach activities and lush jungle life.
This area is very remote, dirt roads only, and few shopping
conveniences. I provide a bicycle for you to ride into town for
your shopping. The climate here is hot and humid; there is no
real seasonal change. The green season here lasts from May to
November; December through April is dry and dusty. Average
temperatures are 75-88 degrees Fahrenheit. So, it is important
that you are able to live at ease in this climate. You will live
in a modest garden apartment with swimming pool, steps from the
beach. There are ceiling fans in each room but it is important
that you understand that the hot climate is an issue for many and

MISSOURI

WE ARE SEEKING A DEPENDABLE PERSON/COUPLE to help with farm and
rental property duties. We are only a small operation with a
total of nine rentals and two farms with 27 head of cattle (plus
calves) and 20+ head of horses. We are currently trying to get
out of the horse business and convert to cattle, but will always
have some horses on hand so working with horses is definitely a
plus. We can’t offer a lot in the way of salary, which is
why we’re looking for someone who is retired with his/their
own additional source of income or someone willing to take on
outside work. However, we can provide a nice four bedroom/three
bath home with a swimming pool, 28 acres and two barns (currently
one of our rentals) for your use as well as a small weekly or
monthly salary. While the property does not have a riding barn or
covered arena, it does have 12 stalls which you can use to run
your own breaking/training/farrier business on the side as long
as our needs are met ... or raise a few calves of your own. We
are located in the beautiful Ozarks in south central Missouri not
far from the Arkansas border. There are numerous
rivers/streams/lakes surrounding us and hunting abounds for deer
and turkey. We want someone who is able to manage a rental
business and take care of routine repairs which will involve some
plumbing/carpentry/electrical work as well as fence
building/maintenance, working cattle and horses, and various
other duties involved in the day-to-day operations of a farm. We
do not expect major repairs such as re-roofing or rewiring a
house, etc., but typical duties will include but are not limited
to repair of leaky faucets/toilets, minor electrical repairs such
as putting up a ceiling fan or installing a garbage disposal,
replacing or repairing guttering, etc. Naturally, the farm work
will involve working with animals, operating and upkeep of farm
equipment, installing/maintaining fence, etc. We would love to be
able to travel so need someone we can totally depend on to take
care of our renters/animals while we are away. Our rentals are
currently in good condition and we want to keep them that way; we
prefer to fix a problem on the front end rather than the back. If
this position sounds like something that you would be interested
in, please let us know when it would be convenient for us to
discuss this in detail with you. Also, please forward us your
cover letter, resume, etc. informing us of your requirements and
give us a time when we can contact you via phone. Thank you for
your time and consideration. Please contact us at

ARIZONA

HELP NEEDED. If you'd appreciate helping an ageing, seasoned
composer finish his life's work and be a part of the creative
process, this would be an ideal situation. I'm a master and have
perfected my art, an ASCAP writer/publisher and in Who's Who in
America as well as Billboard International Buyers Guide, and just
need help to see my efforts manifested. My main focus is on music
production from recording to performance and relating to
spirituality, although not religiously affiliated. I am located
in the desert, about 75 miles from Las Vegas; it's self-contained
in a very small community, and in the wilderness. It’s very
peaceful here. This would be perfect if you have a creative
project of your own as long as it doesn't interfere with the flow
of things already in progress. As I slow down, I have to pace
myself, but I find that the music keeps me young at heart, as
does being around others who are youthful and full of life. And
of course you will get full credit for anything you inspire me to
write. A muse for inspiration would be priceless. Must be
open-minded and a child of the arts. No prejudices here.
Long-term arrangements preferred of at least a month or more. Not
generally suitable for couples or short-term stays. And if you're
really good at business matters (or want to learn) you might be
able to help with internal affairs. This is more suitable for a
guy simply because it involves moving heavy equipment from time
to time. Generally only a few hours of help needed each day with
some times being busier than others, and some travel from time to
time. The average work day is from 10am to 2pm five days a week
and sometimes one day a week can be spent seeing the beauty of
the desert (mountains, lakes, rivers, the Grand Canyon, etc. even
Las Vegas). It's possible this could develop into a career change
for someone who loves music and wants to be actively involved.
There is a very "other-worldly" atmosphere here, with
heart and soul. To learn more, please visit XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
Peace!

goes out during the day (most of the time). The chickens are free
range; they march about the yard at will. They have a little
hutch that they sleep in at night, and they give two to three
eggs each day. They need to be fed about twice a day. They are
all very friendly, and their personalities are pretty funny. The
bins go out on Mondays, and I need my mail brought in each day. I
hire a lawn mower person to mow the lawns once a month, so you
don't need to do any yard maintenance, beyond watering a couple
of plants daily, but nothing that requires any serious gardening
skills. The house is a 10 minute walk from the 86 tram, Safeway

FARM VOLUNTEERS needed. We farm organically, mostly with horses,
and we live a sort of self-sufficient lifestyle in an

permaculture concepts. Our home is located in beautiful central
Kentucky, one hour north of music city USA (Nashville, TN). We
have lots of lakes, rivers and the world's largest cave system,
Mammoth Cave National Park nearby. We also have Great Smoky
Mountain National Park, which is the most visited Park in America
and is an easy drive. We're not commercially farming now, just
growing and preserving much of our own food and for our animals.
We eat pretty healthy. Though we are not vegetarians, we respect
and accommodate others dietary choices and convictions. We breed,
raise and train border collies for herding cattle. So we have
cows, goats and sheep for training the herding dogs. We also have

yogurt, can our own food, etc. We have four horses for farming
and a little riding. Wild turkeys, deer and peacocks are
everywhere. We heat and cook with woodstoves. Sometimes we work
hard; sometimes we do not, but we always take time off to do
things. That said, life is pretty satisfying just like we are
living it, so it's not a 'need to get away' thing, we just like
to go kayaking and other things too. Feel free to ask anything
you wish to determine if you are interested in visiting and
helping us. We enjoy working/interacting with others even
including those different culturally and spiritually. A good
introduction to our farm can be seen on our YouTube video:

scaling down, but trying to have some extra hands around. If
interested, please contact XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Be wise ... be
thankful.

SCOTLAND

A LIVE-IN DOMESTIC COUPLE is needed near Dalwhinnie, Scotland. An
experienced dynamic and energetic couple is needed, with an eye
for detail for an Estate near Dalwhinnie in the Scottish
Highlands. The Estate is very busy between August and October for
the stalking season but quiet in comparison for the remainder of
the year. The vacancy is for a Housekeeper/Caretaker team and the
position can revolve around the couples’ strengths as the
roles can be interchangeable. The Housekeeper position involves
hands on housekeeping (changeovers, laundry, care of fine fabrics
and antiques) and managing a housekeeping team of up to six.
During the sporting season chefs will be in place, however,
outside of this time cooking will be required for small parties
of family/guests. The couple will also be responsible for
coordinating guests, meeting flights, ordering for the house and
the general day to day house management and administration. For
the Caretaker, other opportunities include house maintenance,
gardening and assisting in the kitchen/dining room. It is
imperative that the couple be proactive, have very high standards
and run the house smoothly and efficiently together. They must
also have a good working relationship with the Butler and be able
to co-ordinate other household team members. There would also be
scope to take over the small holiday letting enterprise. Within
the Lodge complex there are 18 bedrooms which are mainly used
during the stalking period. Family and guests will occupy the
house for the duration and the work load will be substantial
during this time and the couple will be expected to work seven
days per week with time off in lieu. The family may visit for a
week or two for the remainder of the year. Hours during this time
will be 8.30am until 5.00 pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am-3.00
pm on Friday. The previous couple is retiring after 15 years and
the clients have stressed that an energetic and enthusiastic
replacement would be essential as the Lodge is in a remote spot
and the private drive is a 20 minute trip. Accommodation is a
three bedroom house with kitchen, sitting room, dining room,
bathroom and double garage. Council tax and all utilities,
excluding TV license, and Toyota Land Cruiser are included in the
package. 28 days annual holiday and a combined annual salary of
circa £40,000 with a 5% pension contribution after a
successful six month probationary period. This position is not
ideal for couples with young children and previous experience in
similar environments is ESSENTIAL. Please do not apply if you do
not have experience in private households. The position is to
start mid-November or earlier. To apply, please email your resume
and references to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

ICELAND

DUE TO SOME LAST MINUTE CANCELLATIONS, we have reopened our
volunteer position at the foot of Eyjafjallajökull starting
September 1. For the third year in a row XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
volunteers will be working from September 1 – 16, 2012 at a
farm in southern Iceland, at the feet of the mighty and famous
Eyjafjallajökull, which last erupted in 2010. We will be
able to explore and enjoy the south Icelandic lowland, which is
made out of sand and rock sediments. The land is covered mostly
by green grass and the closeness of the ocean can be felt in the
air. The Southern District is known by its geothermal activity
which helped to develop important greenhouse agriculture in the
area. Small earthquakes that can rarely be felt are very common
in the area since the mid-Atlantic ridge goes across Iceland and
the southern lowlands is situated between the two largest
tectonic plates in the world, the Eurasian and North American
plate. The south of Iceland is one of the most popular
destinations for travelers as the landscape offers diverse and
breathtaking nature. Rivers and waterfalls, mountains, glaciers
and long beaches form a contrast and offer a wide range of
experiences. Our tasks will mainly be focused on improving the
environment in and preparing the place for the winter. We will
assist in cleaning up the area, clearing old fences and replacing
them, painting and preparing the farm for winter in various ways.
Volunteers will be able to assist in regular farm work such as
milking, riding and collecting hay. We will have the opportunity
to live and work with an Icelandic family, participating in the
diverse tasks that they are involved in, in their daily lives.
This is a unique opportunity to get to know and to experience
first-hand how a family in the countryside lives. The farm is
big, with sheep, cows and horses, and they have their own produce
and we will have the opportunity to work and learn about that.
The working plan will be flexible and it will depend on the needs
of our hosts, the advance of the diverse projects in the area and
of course on the weather conditions. Volunteers will be hosted in
a farmhouse, sleeping on mattresses on the floor. Volunteers will
have to bring their own sleeping bag. The house is a fully
equipped home, with access to a kitchen, bathroom and washing
machine. We will share the different duties of cooking and
cleaning. Please contact XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

ENGLAND 

ANIMAL/HOUSESITTER WANTED in Nottingham, England, from November 6
- 15, 2012. I’m looking for someone to look after my four
cats and two rabbits while I’m away in November. It would
be handy if you could come a day or so before I leave and stay
until after I get back. We live in a four bedroom Victorian
house, with a small garden just north of Nottingham. The famous
poet, Lord Byron is buried in St Mary Magdalene’s Church
here in Hucknall, less than a mile from the house and there are
plenty of other attractions nearby, including, of course,
Nottingham itself. Hucknall is within easy reach of Nottingham
City Centre by car, bus, or tram. Derby, Leicester, Birmingham,
Sheffield and Lincoln are all within an hour’s drive. The
garden is a bit of a mess, unfortunately, partly because of the
rabbits – they have dug up large sections and that has made
it difficult to manage, so I’ve allowed it to go a bit wild
for them. If you are a very keen gardener, I will have no
objections if you want to do some work in it (it is a very small
garden), but I don’t expect anyone to maintain the garden
whilst here. The rabbits and cats all need feeding twice a day
– morning and evening, but times are very flexible, so you
will have plenty of free time to explore the area. Three of the
cats are very friendly and will want some fuss, but the fourth
one is very shy and you probably won’t see much of him
– he lives in my bedroom, so won’t bother you at all.
The rabbits will probably be spooked at first, but if you get
them from the hutch, they will be perfectly happy to be cuddled
and they don’t bite! You will have to clean the litter
trays twice a day, and the rabbit hutch in the morning and there
will be some house cleaning to be done. This is a great central
location, the neighbors are friendly (though you probably
won’t see much of them) and you will have your own bedroom.
Unfortunately I can’t provide a car, but there is a good
local taxi service and public transport system. If you come the
day before and stay a day longer, I can pick you up and drop you
off at Nottingham/Derby train station or East Midlands Airport. I
hope you can help me out in November and I’m sure
you’ll have a great time in Nottinghamshire and, who knows,
maybe you can do this for me again if you like it. Non-smokers
only please. Thanks for reading; I look forward to hearing from
you! Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

RESIDENT CARETAKER/MANAGER needed in Surrey, British Columbia.
Chelsea Gardens, a large prestigious Surrey townhouse and
condominium styled strata complex is seeking a full-time
experienced "Live-In" Resident Caretaker/Manager (RCM)
to replace the current caretaker/manager who is changing
employment. This is suitable for a couple or an individual.
Candidates should have experience as resident caretaker/managers
in large multi-family dwelling complexes and experience in a
strata property is important. Previous employment as
caretaker/managers in rental properties is less important but
will not disqualify potential candidates. There are, however, no
rental suites in the complex. Certification from the Resident
Managers Training Institute will be an important consideration
but is not mandatory if prior employment history is extensive.
The resident caretaker/manager is expected to have general skills
as a handyperson so as to do routine maintenance items and
repairs, gutter cleaning, power-washing, painting touch-ups,
minor electrical and plumbing work, filter changes in HVAC
equipment, etc. It is expected that the RCM will be able to
perform these duties to save the strata corporation from hiring
outside trades for small jobs. While there is a contracted
janitorial and landscaping service, the resident manager would be
expected to deal with emergency spills and cleaning and other
incidents as they arise. Experience with plant and equipment
relating to heating, domestic hot water, is useful along with the
gate entry systems, parkade doors, etc. This position requires an
individual who is a self-starter and can take the initiative to
ensure this strata complex maintains a superior look and
appearance to both the residents and outside guests. It is a
"roll-up-your-sleeves" job that combines managerial
skills with a willingness to be hands-on. The successful
candidate will possess strong interpersonal skill and be prepared
to deal with a diverse group of owners, strata council members
and the strata manager and will always be in control of their
emotions. Diplomacy and a calm civil attitude is a key attribute.
They need to have a working ability on computers in particular in
MS Word and MS Excel as they will be expected to maintain and
update the strata's working manuals dealing with machinery and
equipment and the resident manager's reference manual. They will
be organized and a self starter with the ability to adjust to
unplanned and unavoidable challenges. Qualified candidates can
email their resumes with a cover letter which includes their
salary and benefit expectations. We appreciate all applications
but only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
Resumes are to be sent in Word format or text only via email to

ARKANSAS

CARETAKER NEEDED to live in my precious, darling A frame cabin in
the Ozark Wilderness in Northwest Arkansas from August 15, 2012 -
March 15, 2013. It is perfect for a single caretaker needing a
creative, scholarly or healing retreat. Must be someone who loves
cats; I just have one indoor cat. I need someone who likes quiet
and privacy in a wilderness setting, and who is not afraid of
Mother Nature. The small house is behind six creek crossings; so
there is the need for a certain level of fitness to be able to
leave your truck up the mountain and hike up and down for
possibly several weeks at a time. I would like the caretaker to
pay $250/month for utilities, including, electricity, propane and
phone. There are two scenarios that would work: 1) the caretaker
could be handy with finish carpentry and able to gather their own
firewood, or 2) the caretaker could afford to pay Cody another
small amount/month to do yard work, cut wood and finish the
things that need finishing, i.e., wood stove installation. Cody
is a local young man, very competent, who has lots of work and
does not want to live at my house nor does he like cats. He could
come over once a week and help you with whatever needs doing and
be on call for you in emergencies. Please email your letter of
interest and references to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

1.75 acres in rural-residential Glenwood - 35kms north of Gympie

living area and a large verandah overlooking the picturesque dam.
At the back there is a concreted entertaining area, a chook yard
with two egg laying hens, rainwater tanks and a smaller dam. The
front section of the block is partly garden with mostly native
trees and shrubs and partly natural bush with tall gum trees.
There are also two dogs - Miffie: a stumpy tailed Australian
cattle dog who is six years old and Zac: a large brown dog - he's
five years old, large and lovable. Both are well behaved and they
certainly love people and lots of company. I'm trying to make my
garden as maintenance free as possible, but the grass does need
the occasional trim and the odd weed removed. So I require
someone to maintain the house, care for and feed the dogs, chooks
(and eat the eggs) water the garden if it doesn't rain, mow and
whipper-snip and weed as required to keep the property tidy, and
relax on the verandah and watch the many native birds that hang
around the feeder, bird bath and dam. If you are able to assist

outside dogs during the day but sleep indoors on their mats at
night. I am seeking active people who will walk them for at least
20 – 30 minutes a day. They are not spoilt, nor are they
high maintenance, just basic walking and care are required - they
love people but my older girl is not keen on other dogs, or cats,
so this will not suit those travelling with pets. References
would be appreciated. My father lives nearby and can provide any
emergency assistance or advice regarding the house or dogs. I
look forward to hearing from you. Please email
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX for more info.

ACROSS THE USA

Hi there, I'm currently running across the US to raise awareness
of mental health and I’m looking for one or two people to
help drive the support vehicle while I run and share all the
excitements. You will be travelling across the US in a
Recreational Vehicle (RV) and checking out the Mojave Desert, Las
Vegas, Chicago, New York and many more places! The RV has three
beds and a kitchen where ingredients are provided and we share
the fun job of cooking. I have been travelling with another
person who drove the vehicle while I ran but he is leaving soon.
I run about 22 miles/35km per day so that's usually how far we
travel each day and there would be plenty of opportunities to
check out every town/city on the way. Here's my US route
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX I’m currently looking for people to
join me in Barstow, CA where we will begin by travelling across
the Mojave Desert. I’m hoping the next person(s) can come
on board by the end of May but if you are unavailable now you can
join me anywhere along my route. Give me a shout if the timing is
right and you have a license to drive in the US. Hope you can
join me for some fun travel. Cheers, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

AUSTRALIA

ONCE AGAIN WE ARE SEEKING RELIABLE MATURE HOUSESITTERS for the
period of June 4th to August 3rd, 2012 at our home in Toowoomba,
Queensland. We prefer a couple with some house and pet-sitting
experience. We have a beautiful four-bedroom home on an acre of
land on the western side of Toowoomba. Our Sheltie (Phantom) and
ten-year-old cat (Tendu) love a little bit of spoiling and are
very friendly - just like our small neighborhood. Phantom will
require regular brushing so we would prefer housesitters who
would be comfortable with that task. We have an in-ground
solar-heated salt-water pool requiring no maintenance during our
time away and a very small veggie patch. Our local area is now
very green following recent rains but we do have our own tanks
for use in the garden. We have a very friendly neighborhood with
a small shopping complex just one km away and the centre of
Toowoomba is just five kms. There is no public transport so your
own vehicle would be needed. We are about an eighty minutes drive
from Brisbane, and two hours from the Gold Coast and Sunshine
Coast. Toowoomba is renowned for its beautiful gardens and there
are many things to see and do around our region. Previous
housesitters have all enjoyed our beautiful area. As our acre
requires some maintenance at the time of year that we will be
away, we would prefer to hear from experienced couples who are
happy to work in the garden. There is space for anyone travelling
with a van or trailer, but unfortunately, due to Council
regulations limiting the number of dogs allowed on properties in
our area, we are unable to accept housesitters travelling with
their own pets. Please be aware that Toowoomba does experience
some very cool nights during the winter period, but the days are
mild and for most part very rarely wet! Please email

gone, which may be several weeks (or longer) at a time. When we

an internally strong, balanced person, and enjoy his/their own
company, have high integrity, be independent and self-reliant,
who can both follow directions and make sound decisions, have a
good work ethic, likes being alone as the property is a little

quite tough and strong for this lifestyle), an avid dog lover
(you enjoy dogs living around you), loves and respects nature,
experienced with organic farming/orcharding, enjoys living in hot
climate without A/C, and familiar with alternative living, such
as no pesticides used on plants, having good basic handyman

sunshine, this might be an opportunity for you. Please email your
resume to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

MISSOURI 

LOOKING FOR A SELF-MOTIVATED COUPLE to help us in Missouri! We
are looking for another couple to share our small country farm
with us. We live in the Heart of the Ozarks on 40 acres at the
head waters of the crystal clear Black River. We have several
springs on our property, a green house, pool, small garden, black
berries, a few farm animals, good hunting and fishing (a lake is
just three miles away), lots of natural caves and beautiful
rivers to explore, with Ozark trail crosses about one mile away.
What's included: a small one bedroom farm house with furnishings
if you need them, high speed wireless internet, well water, all
utilities paid, shopping trips into town with us if you do not
have transportation, and $200 per week. Ideally we are looking
for a friendly couple to help us run our business and keep up
with the property. Are you and your partner self-motivated,
clean, and honest?  Do you like to work outside, take care of
animals, and build things? Are you a go-getter, do it yourself
kind? Our business is a property management office located right
on the farm - so no transportation or gas expense is needed! The
office duties for either you or your partner will be 40 hours per
week, Monday through Friday from 8 to 4. This is a laid back
country office, no dress code, all evenings and weekends to
yourself. Duties for the office will include answering phones,
emailing, basic clerical work, computer skills. My husband
actually runs this office and will train you - so no worries if
you have not managed property before. The other position for you
or your partner is property maintenance/caretaking. This spot
will require some care and self motivation. The farm has a few
animals that need to be cared for every day: some chickens, cats,
one dog, a few wild boars (lean healthy pork if you eat meat).
Property maintenance would include mowing, keeping the property
looking nice and clean, cleaning the pool, organizing the work
spaces and keeping them that way, helping with odd end projects,
remodeling the farm house you would be staying in (we have
everything needed for this and the house is very livable the way
it is - we just don't have the time). The property has lots of
potential for added touches too if you like being creative and
there is a greenhouse if you like to garden! A good fit will be
welcome here as long as they live! Please email resumes and
photos to XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX for consideration.

AUSTRALIA

WE ARE LOOKING FOR A RELIABLE AND CARING COUPLE interested in
semi-rural living and who would enjoy the local wildlife, to look
after our property in Armstrong Creek, Queensland (50 km north of
Brisbane) whilst we are overseas starting May 18th for three to
six months. From past experience we have a definite preference
for couples with no children and find this works well. We have an
A framed brick house and car port, set on a ridge on 40 acres of
rolling countryside with lovely views over the surrounding hills.
We have encouraged our wildlife, namely red-necked wallabies,
possums and many varied birds to come and frequent the area
around the house by feeding them small snacks of parrot seed on a
daily basis. This has been one of the highlights for us and our
yearly visitors to Australia and is also popular with our
friends’ visitors as well. Sadly our wallabies are no
longer a frequent occurrence but we are hoping to encourage them
back. Some element of continued feeding will be one of our
requirements during our absence. Of course, as we attract birds
and animals onto our property, pets are not an acceptable part of
the housesit. Our other requirements are naturally to maintain
the house in a good and safe condition, to water the plants and
mow the grass around the house and up the driveway, when required
and to check gutters periodically for leaf collection as we are
on tank water and rely on clear pipes for water collection. If
you enjoy wildlife and think this housesit would suit you, please
email Linda at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX with your expressions of
interest and some details about yourselves or any questions you
may have. Many thanks.

WASHINGTON 

HOUSESITTER WANTED in Snohomish, Washington for approximately
five weeks around October 2012. We can be flexible with the
dates. My name is Samantha and I live with my husband and two
boys (ages 6 and 10) near Seattle, Washington. My husband,
Farren, is a self employed home inspector and I am a Hospice RN.
We live a country life but are only a 30 minute drive north of
Seattle in the town of Snohomish. We live in an area surrounded
by trees, horses and other animals, and views of the Cascade
Mountains. Our home is on a half acre. It is a two story, four
bedroom, three bathroom home with a terrific mountain view. We
live in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood and are surrounded by
kind, supportive neighbors who are always glad to lend a helping
hand. We have a 10-year-old Australian Shepard mix named Toby. We
have four indoor/outdoor cats. Sasha is 14. Ellie is 11, and
Snowball and Leo are six months old. We also have a decorative
chicken coop in our backyard with six laying hens and one gentle
gender confused bantam rooster named Romeo. We have participated
in home exchanges in the past and they have been very successful.
Farren and I have our eye on an approximate a five week European
adventure in October of 2012 and have not had good luck in
finding a match for this. Most European families with children
stick only with school holidays and we are unable to travel
internationally during the Summer because of Farren's business. I
am now thinking that a housesitter may be the way to go to ensure
that we go where we want when we want! We are looking for a
housesitter who is an animal lover, for obvious reasons. Because
of our dog's age he is fairly low maintenance. He will probably
follow you around a lot and he enjoys a short walk every day. Our
cats are entertaining particularly the younger ones. We do have
two litter boxes in the home that will require daily cleaning.
Our chickens are much easier to care for than you might imagine.
They need to be fed and watered every few days. I let them out in
the morning and close up the coop door for them in the evening.
You would not need to clean their coop as we will do it just
before we leave. Their eggs are delicious ... and they are really
so much fun to watch. They are all different breeds with names

AUSTRALIA

WE ARE SEEKING RELIABLE MATURE HOUSESITTERS for the period June
4th to August 3rd, 2012 at our home in Toowoomba, Queensland. We
prefer a couple with some house and pet-sitting experience. We
have a beautiful four-bedroom home on an acre of land on the
western side of Toowoomba. Our Sheltie (Phantom) and ten-year-old
cat (Tendu) love a little bit of spoiling and are very friendly -
just like our small neighborhood. Phantom will require regular
brushing so we would prefer housesitters who would be comfortable
with that task. We have an in-ground solar-heated salt-water pool
requiring no maintenance during our time away and a very small
veggie patch. Our local area is now very green following recent
rains but we do have our own tanks for use in the garden. We have
a very friendly neighborhood with a small shopping complex just
one km away and the centre of Toowoomba is just five kms. There
is no public transport so your own vehicle would be needed. We
are about eighty minutes drive from Brisbane, and two hours from
the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. Toowoomba is renowned for its
beautiful gardens and there are many things to see and do around
our region. Previous housesitters have all enjoyed our beautiful
area. As our acre requires some maintenance at the time of year
that we will be away, we would prefer to hear from experienced
couples who are happy to work in the garden. There is space for
anyone travelling with a van or trailer, but unfortunately, due
to Council regulations limiting the number of dogs allowed on
properties in our area, we are unable to accept housesitters
travelling with their own pets. Please be aware that Toowoomba
does experience some very cool nights during the winter period,
but the days are mild and for most part very rarely wet! For more
information, please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

start an organic vegetable garden while working on the house. We
have a flat for helpers to stay, with a bathroom and kitchen and
Wi-Fi. We offer accommodation and lunch, but the helper should
provide their own breakfast and dinner. We expect people to work
at least six hours per day; you will be working with local
workers, which is a good way to learn Spanish, and can get you in
contact with the neighbors. We can also organize Spanish classes
and excursions, especially to the jungle, and shamanic
ceremonies. We are an Italian couple, Cecilia and Francesco, with
a two-year-old son, who first came to Ecuador in 2006. We have
lived in this beautiful country for over five years now. Cecilia
is a sociologist with a Master’s degree in Gender Studies
while Francesco has a PhD in Physics. We worked on international
cooperation and environmental research and now we started this
beautiful project of building a house for us made of cob and
bamboo. We fell in love with nature, the jungle, spirits and the
culture of Ecuador and its people, its sunsets, its climate, its
power, and we felt that here we could make our dream of living in
a self-sustainable way with real caring for the earth and our
lives. A few months ago we bought a plot of land on the slopes of
the volcano Ilal in the valley of Tumbaco, a half hour from the
city of Quito. It is a beautiful place, still quite rural but
close to everything you need. The land has approximately 3,000mq
and has a nice view of Ilal and the volcano of Quito, Pichincha.
Here we will build our house, capturing rainwater, recycling
water from sinks, using composting toilets, and in the future we
hope to take energy from the sun. Please email

FARM HELPER-HANDYMAN needed May through September. Camp style
lodging, basic vittles, you cook it, 20 hours/week. Negotiable
stipend or wages for over 20 hours. More work available on area
farms. Live on a beautiful 620 acre historic homestead. Lots of
ongoing projects! I am looking for a mature, nonsmoking,
nondrinking, individual with no health or diet issues. High
energy 67-year-young woman doesn't want to do this lifestyle
solo. Need someone who can be my right hand helper. I run a
chainsaw, manage a small orchard, put up firewood, travel the

HOUSESITTER NEEDED in Drysdale, on the Bellarine Peninsula,
located southwest of Melbourne in Victoria from Easter until the
end of August 2012 (negotiable). We have a two bedroom
house/carport, on a quiet street, with a private garden and bay
views. We are a five minute walk to the shopping centre, and 20
minutes to Geelong. The housesitter must maintain our lovely
house (gas heating and wood log fire) and garden and look after
our 8-year-old Vizla. We definitely will not accept smokers, as
this is a non-smoking home. Please call XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

CANADA

WE ARE ON THE LOOKOUT for a semi-retired man (or couple) who
would enjoy helping out on the ranch as a longer term commitment.
Details negotiable! Another position is open for a longer term
stay (to the end of August) for a physically able lady with horse
and people skills. Must be flexible, friendly and open minded!
Pocket wages possible for long-term stays. We (father, mother,
daughter, son in law and their two sons) are a family run ranch
in a remote area of British Columbia. We run a 500 head
commercial cow/calf operation and have about 50 head of horses
(give or take a few). We operate a trail riding outfit in the
nearby mountains during July and August. We start calving at the
end of February; do a pile of range riding in May and June, head
to the mountains in July and start haying by the beginning of
August. Our horses are gently started and then learn as they go
on the ranch and in the mountains. They are almost all out during
the winter as we really don't start riding until the end of April
or so. We have always had luck with those people with previous
agriculture experience, but it isn't really necessary, just a
conscientious attitude and a great work ethic gets anyone by.
Most importantly, you must be easy going and adaptable, as every
day can bring a new challenge. If you need 'routine' in your
life, our ranch may not be the place for you. What you will be
helping with will change with the days and the seasons. There are
no set rules or hours, you'll just hang out and work with us,
side by each, for all aspects of ranch life. That will include
both outside and inside work, from helping prepare dinner and
sweeping a floor to outside chores, from range riding and
checking cows – it all depends on the season, your
abilities and what is happening at that time. So if you are
looking for a new challenge and enjoy a cold beer or glass of
wine around the campfire, drop us a line! Please note that we are
quite isolated and are more than three hours away from shopping
malls, movies theatres, or cell service. As a rule, we don't
normally accept people for a short term visit - by the time you
get here and settled in, it seems you would have to move on.
Usually people come for minimum of six weeks or for a 'season',
such as 'haying season'. We pretty much have our fun on the
ranch, and with the extended family, which you would be a welcome
part of! References available if you'd like. Thank you everyone,
and best of luck! Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

AUSTRALIA 

HOUSESITTER NEEDED in the Stanthorpe/Tenterfield area from April
10th, 2012 - January 15th, 2013. I will be happy for any period
over this time - as I can advertise for another housesitter for
the other period. My property is 30 minutes from Stanthorpe in
New South Wales close to Bald Rock National Park and the
wineries, and 45 minutes to Tenterfield. My 600 acre property
comes with  a four bedroom brick house with a five acre garden.
The garden would need ride-on mowing when needed - not at all
during the winter and the garden just needs the weeds hand pulled
(take a coffee with you and if you see something - pull it out
– it’s not hard work). The gardens are all
established and do not need watering. All gardens are heavily
planted and not many weeds do come up. It just depends on the
weather and how much rain we have had. The garden has just been
totally pruned and trimmed and is ready for winter - so only the
hand weeding is needed besides the spraying. Spray for mowing
edges is needed four to six hours per month. The house has a wood
fire (wood supplied) and is warm as toast. There are no animals
to look after. Just keep the house secure and the property lived
in. Electricity is mains, telephone - land line. Internet is
satellite. Hot water is gas. No neighbors – they are one
kilometer away. There are lots of birds in the garden - native
animals are on the property including koalas, kangaroos,
echidnas, platypus, and good fishing holes. The property has
motorbikes for checking fences and cattle - this is optional -
but is a great way to look around and visit the river. I am
prepared to accept any animals besides cats - as I have too many
birds to allow a cat. Anyway - feel free to ask more questions
and if you are interested let me know. Please email

ECUADOR

HOUSESITTER WANTED in Ecuador from October 2012 through January
2013 while we travel back to England for a three month holiday.
We are an English couple who live permanently in Ecuador, and
have a beautiful wooden house on six acres of Cloud Forest, two
miles outside of a town called Mindo with approximately 2,400
residents. On our property we have three dogs, two cats, a parrot
we rescued and a lot of chickens and ducks. We have different
areas of the land that we maintain as garden or for growing sugar
cane, bananas, vegetables etc and the rest of the land we leave
pretty much untouched with a trail running around the land and
through it. We have our own water supply and electricity and
although our house is rustic we have many of the comforts of
anywhere else! The housesitter needs to be someone who has a love
for the outdoors, animals and gardening. All our animals have
been brought up by us and are well behaved but they like to be
with us all the time. Everything talks, barks, crows and wants
affection so you need to really like animals and have some
experience. We are also surrounded by beautiful reserves and
activities, zip lining, waterfalls, butterfly farms, abseiling,
horse riding and there are restaurants and bars in the town of
Mindo. We will also provide you with our Quad to get around on.
We feel as though this is a great opportunity for someone maybe
considering a life abroad somewhere tropical with a unique
environment and culture. We are looking for someone who is going
to truly embrace being somewhere remote (although only 15 minutes
on the Quad to the town which has many National and International
tourists all year round!) and going to enjoy living there as much
as we do. Mindo is famous for its birds, orchids and its
biodiversity! From our balcony we daily see toucans, quetzals,
parrots and mammals such as Armadillos, Kinkajoos, and Apossoms.
This is not a paid house sit, nor we do not expect to get paid
but general maintenance of the house and land is definitely part
of the deal. Cost of living is very cheap and eating out or
cooking is very cheap, you will need to pay the electricity bill
and buy petrol for the Quad but the electricity bill is not more
than $10 a month and petrol $1.50 a gallon! Our house, land and
animals have been a true labor of love for two years so we are
really keen to make sure we find the perfect people to housesit
for us. If you think you might be interested I am sure you will
have lots of questions as we will have for you. But if this
sounds like something you could be interested please contact us
by emailing XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
