We are looking for a person/couple to house sit and care for our animals from The 1st of September until the 16th whilst we take some time out on our honeymoon.
(Non-smokers)


Jo and John live on a lovely 20 acre property which is located in Seville, Yarra Valley, Victoria.

John and Jo are both professionals who love the country life, good living and healthy eating, mostly vegetarian.

We are both self employed and in our spare time love the outdoors, studying, swimming in our dam, watching movies and enjoying a holistic approach to life. Jo has a number of horses and loves all animals.

We are looking for help mostly around the house, garden and feeding of animals.

We have a couple of dogs and cats, goats, horses and a Donkey.

We are currently doing a bit of work around the house and need help painting, weeding, hedging, cleaning and feeding animals.

Helpers generally work 4-5 hours a day doing odd jobs around the house and feeding animals.

Weekends are generally fairly relaxed and we often take our helpers out on country drives, to cafes and dinners.

We have a 2 acre beautiful spring fed dam to swim in.

Helpers have their own room in the house and shared bathroom with John's 13 yo son, Max. There are 3 living areas, wifi, netflicks and a pool table.

You can text Jo on her Mobile, see above.
