We need a house sitter

Canterbury - Waimakariri


We live in rural Waimakariri, just north of Christchurch. Our 1000 sq. meter, low maintenancy property has a few laying chickens roaming within the boundaries and there are horses for neighbours. We also have 2 sweet cats we rescued that love cuddles and generally sleeps indoors overnight. Very relaxed. We prefer to have housesitters who are couples traveling NZ. We are open to a longer stay, until 3 January if you prefer.

Marina and Neil are a sensational couple. They invited me to stay one night before the official house-sitting date started and offered also dinner. Both are truley caring people who can also provide you with a lot of information and useful tips about places to visit around the area, if wished.

Marina & Nail are a wonderful friendly couple. We spent the night together before they went on holidays and we have some nice chats, they share us some beer and some home made komboocha!! They are super easy going. Shadow (the cat) was super friendly and loved cuddles. The chikens are really easy to take care of. And you can enjoy some fresh free range eggs! Thanks guys for everything :)
