Due to work committments I am looking for housesitters from 24 September to 18 October 2019. My home is a charming cottage located in a 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, home and garden ( lawns, watering & weeding as necessary) 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/hiking in the National Park or who would like to explore the top of the South Island. 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 peaceful 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. I have 2 cats who are easy to take care of, no other pets.
Please only reply if you are in NZ or have already bought your ticket to New Zealand ( sorry but this is due to a previous respondant who canceled last year at the last minute!)
