We need a house sitter

Waikato - Taupo


Our house is in a quiet residential area, 5 min drive or 15 minute walk from the town center of Taupo. The bus stop is 3 minutes walk if you want to catch bus.

It is a very cozy house and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the bedrooms is a spare room for our guests and our house sitter is to have the room while she is here. It is a very warm house with a heat-pump and a fire place in the lounge. We have unlimited wireless internet.

We have a cat and 2 budgies we dearly love and this is the reason why we are looking for a house sitter. The cat, Missy is timid and shy but very affectionate once she gets used to you. One of budgies, Buddy, was hand-reared and is very friendly, and also talks.

The duties are to feed the cat and birds, and let birds have time out of the cage in the lounge for at least one hour per day. I have a couple of indoor plants and small vegetable gardens to be watered.

We seek a mature, reliable, and tidy house-sitter who has had experience with cats and birds. We prefer a single person for this job.

It was an absolute joy and pleasure to look after Keiko's gentle cat and amazing birds. Missy, the cat, loves nothing more than being cuddled, and I miss her purring already! One of the budgies is just amazing - apart from bird language, he also speaks English! He loves to talk and listen to you, too - he is just an absolute gem! In addition, Keiko's location is just so central, perfect to explore Taupo and surrounding attractions! Thank you, Keiko, for giving me this great house sit ... MORE

No rating I highly recommend house sitting for Keiko and her lovely pets- Buddy, Jo Jo and Missy. Keiko was very welcoming to her home, town and provided lots of helpful information (written and verbal) about how to care for her pets. This has been one of my favourite house sits so far. Thank you Keiko.
