General description

  • Main home
I bought this house about 12 months ago and it's a work in progress. The house is clean and has hot water, WIFI and all of the essentials but looks a bit 'tired'. It's set on a quarter acre of sloping terrain, which I'm landscaping little by little. The front yard is fenced and secured but the back isn't.
I live in a semi rural community. It's safe and everyone is very friendly here.
It's pretty normal to see goats and pigs wandering by looking for food. There are two mango trees on the fence line and the pigs regularly feast on the fallen fruit in mango season.
The nearest bar and local style restaurant is a few minutes walk away and several people in the neighbourhood have set up small 'shops' from their front yards selling essentials a stones throw from the house which is great if you run out of loo roll! Duncan's is not far away though. Its a few minutes drive or about 15 minutes walk..
Duncan's is a small town which I find adequate for day to day shopping. There are supermarkets, a bakery, hardware stores, haberdasheries, a gas station, a pharmacy, local restaurants and bars and a good deal more.
For a ' big shop' Falmouth is easily accessible from Duncan's.
The nearest beach is Duncan's Bay. A short drive from Duncan's. The fishermen sell their daily catch outside Leroy's bar every morning. It's worth an early morning visit to see the fishermen prepare the fish on the rocks and watch the birds dive into the ocean for the spoils.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • A dog
Max is my baby & the main reason I’m seeking a house sitter. He is a 6 year old half German Shepherd and half Rottweiler. He loves cuddles, playing ball and lots of attention. Max's biggest faults are jumping up on visitors with muddy paws, chasing small animals if he get the chance and having selective hearing. Otherwise he's gorgeous. Other than him, I have a small plant nursery - about 1500 potted plants in total which will need regular watering.
