We need a house sitter

Auckland - Waitakere


Hello housesitters,

Are you someone who is quiet, reliable and good with timid cats?

Sephira is a rescue cat who had a very hard time until she came to live us. It can take her a few days to get used to a new person - so patience and understanding is a must. She won't use a cat flap so you'll need to let her in and out.

We live on the Cornwallis peninsula surrounded by bush and sea - there is a lovely long beach for walks as well as a walk up to the monument for a bit of exercise and great views. Lots of bird life in the garden and by the beach.

Cornwallis is 15mins drive from Titirangi - so for some it can feel a bit remote - it will probably work best for someone who works from home unless you are fine with the driving. We love it because it feels like you are on holiday.

Our house is light and airy and comfortable - a bit like a great holiday bach. There is a large library of books and plenty of DVD's to watch also. We have a rain water tank - the water tastes lovely and fresh. The house is heated by a woodburner and is fully insulated. There are also separate heaters in the dining room and bedrooms..

There is a deck looking out across the garden to the bush and even in the winter this is still a lovely place to sit on sunny days.

Cornwallis is off the beaten track so you will need your own car. There is safe parking up by the house. We have friendly and helpful neighbours.

All in all this would be a great opportunity for a winter retreat, a peaceful place to relax and unwind - and enjoy the company of our lovely Sephira.

If this sounds like you please get in touch and we can set up a time for an interview where you can meet Sephira and see the house.
