We need a house sitter

Wellington - Kapiti Coast


We are a young family; Mum, Dad and two boys (5-6). We are away from 27 Dec - 6 Jan 2020. We are looking for a family to house sit that can enjoy Waikanae and the Wellington region as much as we do.
Our house is a well lived in 1960's warm home with air conditioning and a fully fenced yard.
We have two Labradors; Mack and Mia - brother and sister and great family dogs - both sleep in the conservatory at night and are welcome in the house only when invited.
We also have two cats; Tahi and Kitten (not a kitten anymore) - both roam freely and come home when tummies start to rumble - Kitten will happily snuggle up if offered.
One lonely fish for now in a Marine tank.

There are two large bedrooms; Queen in one and two singles in the other. There is a third bedroom currently being used as a Toy hide out for our two boys but a matressor three would definitely fit in there!

We have a large conservatory for when the weather isnt so great and when its great we have a large back yard.

Looking for someone who will just give the place a vacuum when they leave and look after the animals. You dont need to be home all day and walking the dogs isnt essential (they keep themselves well worked out during the day if needed) but they would love a walk every now and again.

The house is also two mintues walk to the waikanae river which has a beautiful walking/biking track. Or great swimming spots for the kids.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Our holiday has the ability to be extended until 8th Jan if you would like to stay longer.
