Hello my name is Ian

I am a single person and what people would say as been low key , non alcohol , not a party person. Love nature and gardens. I'm tidy and respectful of peoples homes. Your home and pets are well looked after and will be as good as the day you left. I have no problem looking after gardens and mowing lawns or anything else you require. I have looked after many pets ,[ cats have been in my life from childhood ] and have references from all homes I've looked after. Can email references .One home for 3 months looked after 7 cats-4 dogs - 35 ducks /chickens and was of the grid in Wiamate North. I have my own car .
I have a wide range of handy man skills . I am a photographer and do my own calendars for around the Otago region . I also have my photographic work in shops and attend markets . To see my work, look up Port chalmers artisan market website, or contact me for details. In between I have clients whom I do gardening for and no problem to supply contact number for reference.
Kind regards Ian

No rating I would 100% recommend Ian. He is totally reliable, friendly, kind and a great communicator. He also allowed me to take an extra day. Thankyou Ian.

I very much enjoyed looking after Rhonda's humble home, peaceful rural outlook. MaCherie the cat is a pleasure to look after ( especially if you get her brush out). Very central to all that the far South Island has to offer. Thank you Rhonda.
Ian exceeded all expectations. As well as looking after everything, our cat, lawns, horses, garden, he shared his photography skills with us. Photographed our horses, cat, garden and local events, etc. He took a great effort in making sure everything was clean and tidy and gardens even weeded. A very cabable and versitile bloke that we certainly will have sit for us again. Would recommend with bells on. Thanks Ian.
