Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
Ex airbnb hosts & ex furparents- the perfect carer
We are able bodied couple who retired from a manufacturing business we used to own and moved to a 7 bedroom farmhouse which we renovated for airbnb. As hosts we met a lot of interesting people both local and from overseas, some of them became friends and have been in regular communication.
We used to have 3 dogs, several birds, chooks and ducks at the farmhouse. Raised several heifers, two bulls and sheep and ram. We sometimes took care of neighbour's pets when they went on Christmas break. When the farmhouse was sold we moved to the city.
We used KiwiHousesitters to take care of our dogs when went overseas for 51 days. Two of our furbabies crossed the rainbow bridge in 2016. Our last pet was a senior Maltese Vinnie who we spoiled to high heavens. We lost our sweet little boy Vinnie just recently and we are still grieving. We decided to do pet sitting to bridge our loss until we decide what to do next.
Your pets will be in good hands and your house will be treated with respect.
BTW - we are also keen gardeners.
