We need a house sitter

Otago - Dunedin


We have a lovely 3 bedroom home located in Fairfield, Dunedin. Easy to access and less than 10 minutes via the motorway to Dunedin central.
We have two dogs, Fraser is a 14 year old lab/collie and Lily is a retriever/lab and is 13. Plus one cat called Sam who rules the roost. The dogs only require a short walk each day and some company in the evenings, otherwise they are happy to just sleep in the sun inside. Though we don't have a dog door at this house, so someone who is able to be around a bit during the day to let them out to the toilet would be preferred.
Looking for a couple or single who are responsible and love animals to look after our place while we are away. A family is also fine as long as any children are comfortable around animals (we have a 1 year old and 5 year old so the animals are very good around children). Our section is fully fenced and very secure.
Very little maintenance required it's just about making sure the house is secure and the animals well taken care of.
Your own transport would be beneficial though there is public transport nearby (a bus direct into town less than 5 minutes away).
Would love to hear from interested parties and happy to send photos and answer any questions. If you are local to the area please advise as it would be great to meet up beforehand. We can be flexible on the dates, within reason.

Reviews (1)
We thoroughly enjoyed looking after Cathy & Grant's lovely home and their pets were no trouble; in fact, Fraser and Lily were a delight, and Sam, the cat, was cuddly and cruisy. Their location was perfect for being able to enjoy a lot of day trips to explore the coast and the fabulous Otago peninsula and surrounds.
