We need a house sitter

Northland - Far North


This place offers a genuine living in nature experience, with lovely bush and spring streams to explore and would suit a fit non-smoking, conscious couple, who love comfort and wilderness locations.

There is mobile reception, alternate power, cosy wood heating and no neighbours close by. The access needs a high clearance SWB - 4WD vehicle. Mobile phone internet connection works adequately, but not at lightening speed.

The 2BR home is clean and comfortable, well renovated and functional. One private room is available with a comfortable queen size bed, plus there is a king single bed in the adjoining yoga lounge area. The Homewood Stove is a deam. The situation gives complete peace and privacy from the outside world and is a great place for a writer, artist, musician or meditation retreat.

The house runs on solar and hydro power, with gravity feed spring water, so an aptitude for off-grid living, with alternate power systems is a major bonus. Because of the unique situation, you will need to be available to visit and be briefed asap, before the sit starts. If this apeals so far, you'll be in paradise here.

Holly the horse lives here too. She is a gorgeous friendly horse with heaps of character and she's big, so you need to be confident handling horses. She will be expecting daily feeds, fresh water, rugging in the cold, electric fencing monitoring and most of all your kind and loving company.

Please have references available and include a phone number when emailing, so I can call you. Thanks.

Om Shanti, Gigi
