We need a house sitter

Auckland - Rodney


A very warm and picturesque cottage with views from every window and a short walk across farmland to the Kaipara where there is a small shelly beach.
We are off the grid so no bills but the electricity is 12 volt; it can charge and run limited 240 v0lt appliances with an adaptor, which we have.
There is no Internet, sorry! but the library in Wellsford is fabulous, and neighbours are accommodating if necessary. We are 15 minutes from Wellsford by car.
I have two Alpine goats that need daily checking for food, water, general health etc. They are pets really and enjoy company. Also a very affectionate and intelligent cat to look after.
Should be vegetables in the gardens. Maybe fruit. Can help yourselves.
Suit a couple with a car. No dogs. Room for others to sleep.
Would like to meet you before you take it on, there's a few idiosyncrasies with systems etc. Otherwise, plenty hot water and light, outside bath, beautiful views, great neighbours but well out of sight! Historic chapel up the road.

No rating Jill and Steve live on a lovely little life-style farm with seven goats and one cat. I had a lovely time house sitting for them ten days over Christmas. The garden is full of goodies and the neighbours are lovely, very welcoming and kind.
