We need a house sitter

Canterbury - Christchurch


I'm looking for a house-sitter (+dog sitter) for 4 days from
Friday 16 -Sunday 18 October (dates inclusive) . If you can help, please contact me. Thanks.

Theses dogs (Sufi and Olika) are 5 year old poodles / labradoodles, and are quite lively and excitable (as poodles can be). So they can be a lot of fun, but sometimes also hard work. Best if you have some experience of dogs,

Please see the photos of the house (including the guest room). The living area is covered with rugs (the large blue ones) mainly to protect the carpet underneath - and the leather sofa similarly covered to protect from any dog scratches, or dogs getting on the sofa (although this is strongly discouraged, and rarely happens). The house is a 1928 California bungalow style villa - and the doors are probably the originals. Having said that, there is excellent insulation (all walls, loft, and double glazing) and the house is very warm in winter (and cool in summer). We have Three heat pumps (and also a log-burner) so we don't get cold. (The heat pumps are very east to use if you stay here). There is also an HRV system and heat exchange. The guest room has an oil-heater also.

Had a great time with Sufi & Olika. Sufi was a bit timid to start with but warmed up quickly. Olika was happy to just lie near my feet & get the occasional pat. Over a cool Christchurch weekend the heat pumps kept the house nicely warm
