Due to work committments I will be requiring housesitters from approx 19 October to 7 November 2017 & then again in Feb & March Each sit is for approx 2-3 weeks.
My home is a charming cottage located in rural setting on 1 acre site with magnificent view of mountains and a river. Near to Nelson Lakes Ntl Park and Kahurangi National Park. Heatpump/ fireplace for the cooler evenings. Preference for mature non smoking couple ( property does not suit young children) who will care for my 2 cats and garden ( lawns & weeding) while I am away.
Lots to do in the area such as boating, walks, tramping, fishing, 4WD tracks, gold panning or just relaxing with the sound of the river flowing below. Great place for people who enjoy the peace and quiet and walking in the National Park or who would like to explore the top of the South. Nelson, Motueka and Blenheim are 1hr 15mins away, Westport 1.5 hours. Murchison 40mins. If you are a keen gardener then there is plenty here to keep you going( exception being during the colder months)
You will require your own car. Due to location best suited to 2 persons who enjoy being in a farming environment. Internet is available, but via Satellite, so not suited to people wanting to work via internet unless you are prepared to pay some towards cost of extra Gbs. I have 2 cats who are easy to take care of, no other pets. Thanks.
