August 18th – September 20th 2017
I have arrived in the Hunter Valley, one of the World’s most famous wine regions to look after a 50 acre property along with the most well behaved dog named Badger and his best friend “Tilly” the chicken and one solitary cow.
The scenery here is spectacular with rolling hills as far as the eye can see.
The home commands magnificent views across the vineyards and is only a ten minute drive to the nearest shops, many golf courses, the Hunter Valley Gardens and any number of restaurants and wine culture facilities.
The grounds and gardens are extensive and in addition to attracting the native birdlife, provides colour and a truly peaceful and enjoyable house sitting assignment.
My wonderfully generous hosts, Neil and Desrie are on vacation in France and have provided me with a fabulous welcome and an introduction to their neighbours who have already made me feel like I am one of the family.
Home Owners Testimonial….
Anthony is "one out of the box"
From our initial request for a house and pet sitter, to the conclusion of the engagement, Anthony has conducted himself with the utmost professionalism and consideration.
His ability to instantly put us at ease in entrusting him with our home , our belongings and our pets enabled my wife and I to enjoy a month overseas without concerns about what was happening at home.
Periodic updates via text and mobile phone photos added to our freedom from concerns.
We arrived home to our large garden well cared for and looking a picture of colour, our house spotless, our dog "Badger" full of life and our elderly hen "Tilley" still clucking.
In addition, Anthony engaged with some of our neighbours, friends and family, all of whom speak in glowing terms about his friendliness and his dedication to the task of "house sitting" In conclusion, we have not only experienced an expert in this field, but we believe in Anthony we have found a friend.
Our recommendation for Anthony is A1, Five Star, Michelin, Golden Globe, Oscar etc, etc.
