We need a house sitter

Bay of Plenty - Tauranga


We are a couple in our 30's, based in The Lakes in South Tauranga, looking for a single or couple to housesit over the Christmas/New Year period.

We have one cat named Lucifer, who is shy but generally doesn't live up to his namesake. He is on a raw diet, so we are looking for someone who can commit to twice-a-day feeding, as well a providing a bit of company and the odd treat. He isn't super snuggly, but likes to have a chat and hang out in the sunshine once he is comfortable. We would prefer to be able to meet any prospective sitters in person before we leave town as he is nervous around new people.

You will have your own dedicated bedroom (queen bed) and bathroom for the duration of the stay. The third bedroom is used as a home office and we will clear one of the desks off for you to use. We just ask that the door gets closed at night if you do use this space.

There is off street car parking and room for a campervan on the driveway, although turning space is quite limited. The garage also has one car parking space available if needed.

Other than the cat and throwing a bit of water over the pot plants and garden when needed, the house is very easy care. The Lakes suburb is nice and quiet and has a good number of walking/cycling paths to explore. We are a 15-20min drive from McLarens Falls, Mt Maunganui, or Papamoa and a little over 45min to Rotorua on a good day, so although there are no sea views, it's still a handy location.
