Aloha, I am currently searching for a wonderful house sitter who is comfortable with taking care of cats, dogs, horses and chickens. Also a car rental would be necessary since a car is not included.
The house is in Haiku, which is on the north shore of Maui. It is on 2 acres in a rural area. The north shore is not the touristy side. The beaches are mainly surfing and windsurfing beaches. The sandy beaches are on the south and west sides.
It tends to be a bit rainy in Haiku so there are lots of rainbows to be seen. It is usually just a short ride to the sun. Makawao , a small town with a local cowboy heritage is about a 10 minute drive.
Duties would include taking care of a small dog Nalu, who is on a special diet. I will have the food precooked and frozen before leaving. Lily the kitty. She is very sweet and very shy, and Nina the kitty. There are two horses Maui and Rio. Rio is a recent addition and would need to be haltered at feeding time since he is still learning ground manners. It would be best to have someone who is comfortable with horses and able to halter and lead them. They have free reign of the property which is 2 acres. They are fed twice a day. They are not available for riding. There are also chickens that live on the property that are fed morning and evening. This sit would be best for a morning person since the animals are early risers.
There is a garden that would need watering if it is not raining. We usually get rain mostly daily but with the weather changing these days that has become less predictable. So the garden and some plants around the house would need to be watered.
It is a 2b/2b home about 1800 sq feet. King beds in each room. There is wifi. It is a lush green peaceful environment. There is wifi but no cable TV. There is a netflix app on the TV so you can watch some movies.
Due to COVID the state of Hawaii has mandated you must have a negative covid test within 72 hours of flying. This test must be from a TRUSTED PARTNER meaning you cannot just be tested anywhere. IT must be from a certain lab. The information can be found on their travel site:
