If you are looking for a complete change of scenery and have Dh142 to spare, Natalie Giumelli has a unique proposition for you.

The Australian mother-of-two and owner of the Yapper Valley Pet Resort is looking for someone to take over ownership of her four-bedroom home and profitable pet resort business in Queensland, Australia. But instead of putting them on the open market, she is inviting prospective buyers to enter a draw.

For AUD$55 (Dh142), you could become the proud owner of a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home that is only three years old and set on 110 acres of freehold land, 25 minutes from Townsville. The pet resort business, meanwhile, is fully managed and profitable and you’ll inherit all the equipment necessary to keep it operational. If that is not enticing enough, Giumelli is offering AUD$30,000 (Dh77,000) in the bank to help you kick start your new business.

“With all the hard work my family and I have put into building our home and our successful company, I know that not many people would have the deposit, in these current economic times, to purchase our beloved home and business. I want the legacy to continue with us caring for people’s fur babies. This is really a once in a lifetime opportunity to be debt free and start your life all over again,” she says.

Only 40,000 entries will be allowed into the draw and the winner will be announced on September 24. In total, the house, cash prize and business are valued at AUD$1.52 million (Dh3.9m) – but if she does attract 40,000 entries, Giumelli stands to make AUD2.2 million (Dh5.6m).
