Dog sitter required for sunny Mission Bay home, close to beach
We're looking for a dog lover, to look after an enthusiastic, VERY friendly golden retriever over a long weekend in March - from Friday until Sunday afternoon.
Our home is a comfortable, warm and sunny standalone house with a big deck, ideally located 5 minutes walk from Mission Bay beach and shops. Eastridge Shopping Centre, which has a New World supermarket, chemist, bookshop, etc is just 2 minutes drive (about 15 mins walk) up the road. We are only about 10 minutes drive from town. House has a big back yard, which the deck looks over. A heat pump and HRV system keeps it nice and warm on cold days. The neighbourhood is quiet, friendly and very safe.
Our Home & Location
5 minutes walk from Mission Bay beach - a very safe swimming beach for children (and adults). Kohimarama beach and St Heliers are within 15 mins. Great walks, cafes, restaurants and a movie theatre are just down the road at Mission Bay, and you are only 10 minutes drive from Auckland City.
We have bikes if you wish to use them - it is a 20 minute bike ride into the city along a safe bike path on Tamaki Drive....
This is a great spot for families with kids or for couples/singles wanting to spend some chilled out time by the beach with the benefits of a city nearby. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Responsibilities would be to walk the dog at least once a day, and provide company for her. While she's fine for a couple of hours by herself, she gets lonely if she is alone for more than about half a day. She also doesn't cope very well with being left alone (outside) at night, so ideally you wouldn't be gone for a whole night. We're keen for someone clean and tidy who can just generally look after the house - but no specific responsibilities apart from the dog.
