We need a house sitter

Otago - Waitaki


We are seeking some housesitters while we are away visiting family.

We live in a unique house with hexagonal shaped rooms and built out of a lot of reclaimed materials. Our property is a half acre "jungle" based loosely on permaculture.

We have a large trampoline and a sandpit and lots of space for kids.

We have a skittish cat that will need feeding (he will probably just sneek in at night when everyone is in bed). Our main priority is our blind dog. She is a gentle dog around people, but can get nervous around other dogs. We is a bearded collie/huntaway x and does have a big bark. We ideally would like to find someone confident with dogs who would be happy to walk her on the cycleway near our house a few times a week, and also love on her a bit as she will probably be a bit depressed while we are away...

We are only 6km out of Oamaru which is a great wee tourist town with lots of things to do (cafes, playgrounds, penguins, steampunk). Also close to a great surfing/swimming beach (Kakanui). Great place for couples and families.
