We need a house sitter



Hi, we're looking for a responsible, cat loving house sitter to look after our 3 bedroom house in Brooklyn and our very low maintenance and relaxed cat. Our house has a large living area and kitchen, a small garden, and a nice deck. The upstairs bedroom is also large, with beautiful views of Wellington harbour. Our house is in a good neighbourhood with great views of the city, and is easy walking distance to Brooklyn village with its shops, cafes, pubs and cinema (the walk back is a fairly steep uphill!). Also a half hour walk or 5 min drive to Wellington city and all its attractions. The local park, Central Park, has some lovely walking tracks, and we're also close to the walk up to Brooklyn Wind Turbine. If you like the beach, Island Bay and Owhiro Bay marine reserve are an easy and scenic ten min drive away. All we'd need from you is to feed and cuddle the cat, do her litter tray when needed, water the garden if it's dry, and optionally do a bit of garden maintenance (we rarely have time for this ourselves with 2 young kids so that bit is totally up to you!) Please note: we don't have standard TV, but you are welcome to use our Netflix account details on your own device, and we have a large screen that you can cast Netflix/YouTube etc onto using the Google Home app.

Since there isn't a radio nor live TV in the house a sitter needs to bring their own entertainment to the house. We ... MORE
