Description of the home
(Rent includes 2 bedrooms for 1 person)
Hello, my little dog George and I (30 year old male) are in search of a housemate to move into our rented home/animal sanctuary nestled in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.
- The property –
It is amazing, it sits on a spacious 14 acres of mostly eucalyptus woodlands with a waterway consisting of numerous small ponds and lakes with a giant 2-acre lake as the property’s centerpiece. It is secured by an electrified feral-proof fence and acts as a sanctuary for an array of captive and wild native endangered animals ranging from bandicoots, bettongs and platypus to an emu called Regina.
- The house –
Sitting on top of a small hill is an old 4-bedroom stone house that’s had a few extensions over the years. A shared bathroom, laundry and kitchen with a walk-in pantry. Spacious patio with outdoor fireplace and an old barn and shed outback. Fenced in large veggie patch and water supplied by two huge rainwater tanks. While there are limited inside communal areas you are able to have 2 bedrooms (both unfurnished), one for sleeping and one for whatever else you please.
It’s an amazing property for anyone who loves nature and being outdoors. While far from essential it would be great to have someone interested in the environment or someone studying anything conservation related.

I am a 30 year old male who has been living in this house for approximately a year and half now. I work in the conservation field, both at the Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary next door and also a bush-regeneration organization called Trees For Life. The protection of native flora and fauna is both work and a hobby for me. I spend a lot of my spare time working to restore the biodiversity around the property and neighboring area.
I love getting out and about with my dog going for hikes and exploring the beauty of the many nearby parks, enjoy bike riding, building things like bird boxes, kicking the footy and playing tennis. Inside the house I'm generally listening to music, watching sport, playing games etc.
- Regina the emu is more or less a pet. She’s very friendly yet cautious, mostly just hangs around the house. She is extremely inquisitive and will likely follow you around the property from a distance.
- Outdoors okay
