We need a house sitter

Manawatū-Whanganui - Rangitikei


Fancy a getaway with fabulous views and peaceful location? If you enjoy peace and quiet, walking tracks and views second to none then this is perfect. We are 20minutes from Feilding and Hunterville, 45 minutes from Palmerston North and Taihape. We are 2.5hrs north of Wellington and 2.5 hrs south of Taupo. We have a brand new home with spectacular views. We have Wifi and Netflix. There is a nice swimming spot in the Rangitikei River 10minutes from our house.
We would require our cat and outside house dog to be fed. Both very friendly, old and love company. We also have 9 farm dogs that need feeding and a walk but it's very flexible as neighbour can do this on days you are away. You can sit inside admiring the view or on the deck with a cuppa. Theres plenty to do and see. As our location is central provides great day trips. So if the countryside is just what you're looking for please feel free to message me for photos or more information.

No rating Hi Claire, Scott and kids, you live in an awesome part of NZ and we loved the stay, your comprehensive guide Claire made it so easy. The animals, boss, the dog, flicker the horse and , willow the cat where great company and easy to look after. The location was ideal for use too as it meant we could day trip to a very large part of south to central north island which is what we were after.

No rating We would highly recommend house sitting for Claire & Scot, the instructions Claire leaves is so detailed it reads like a book! The animals are easy to care for and we enjoyed spending time with Flick, the dogs, willow, and boss! Plus, feeding the lambs was adorable! You certainly get a feel for life in the country sitting house for this family! If you had any questions Claire is just a phone call away but you will not need to call her because she answers all of your questions! A big hello to ... MORE

No rating A very welcoming lovely family , great clear instructions along with photos of the farm dogs in their kennels which made it so easy not to get them mixed up when giving them a run .The family cat is such a smoocher one adores her immediately.and the lambs create a complete farm break in amazing rural scenery. Thankyou Claire and your family for sharing your farm with us Adrienne and Rod
