Companionship for dogs and cats and to keep an eye on the alpacas.
We are a family of four who live in the beautiful Bay of Plenty with our two dogs, two cats and herd of alpacas. We have a few trips lined up and need someone to look after the property, pets and alpacas.
Our house is about 30 minutes drive from Tauranga, situated next to the bush line with stunning views of the Mount.
Our Home & Location
Our house has four bedrooms. One is set up for AirBnB and has its own bathroom. This room would be yours.
The house is rural so you will need to drive to the beach (15km), town (20km), nearest shop (10km).
Local attractions include Mount Maunganui (35mins), Omokoroa (15mins), Rotorua (1hr 15), Whakatane and White Island (1hr 30) and Hobbiton (1hr). We are surrounded by bush walks and all types of outdoor activities.
Responsibilities & Pets
The property is easy care and we'll mow the lawn before we leave!
Dogs: one Cavoodle aged four called Lady and one Airedale Terrier called Chewbacca (Chewie) who was born May 5th '18 so still a pup. They are both really friendly but Chewie is a typical pup and may try it on a bit so some one who is used to 'teenage' dogs would be good. They can easily be exercised around the paddocks. If you do want to take them for a walk, there is a track right outside the house. We do ask our house sitters to not go away overnight....
The two cats will need feeding but otherwise you may not see them as they tend to be wary of our housesitters.
The alpacas...depending on the season, they will need to be fed out daily with special nuts that prevent them from getting facial eczema and there maybe some babies to keep an eye on too. + More info
