Pet sitting & House sitting job in Nelson / Marlborough
Nelson / Marlborough - Nelson
# This housesit period is being relisted ~ Please note that this housesit offer is only suitable for people with a car or other transportation #.
I have a tidy cottage with most of the mod cons on an acre section in a valley on the outskirts of the Nelson Lakes National Park. The deck overlooks the river. It's a quiet 'retreat'. Housesit ideally suits a couple who are used to living in the countryside. No children thanks. I am looking for housesitters that have an affinity with cats and gardens. Even though my 2 cats are shy they do appreciate being fed and getting some attention. While I am away I would appreciate some care being given to my garden in the form of weeding. In the event the lawns need to be mowed, there is a lawnmower available and mowing takes about 2-3 hours.
The property is not suited to children.
As internet is via Satellite and I only have 10Gb per month the housesit does not suit someone wanting to work from home via the net.
Lots to do in the area incl. tramping, walks, boating, fishing. Wineries, gardens, arts and crafts and more amazing scenery within easy drive.
Nearest cities are Blenheim and Nelson, at 1.15mins drive away. As the South Island is somewhat remote public transportation outside of the cities is very poor so to enjoy this area and all that is on offer you will need a car.
