Winter Holiday in Mid Canterbury
We need someone to care for our much loved pets while we travel overseas, as well as care for our home. Our family has usually done this, but we feel 7 weeks is a big ask when they have their own families! We run a plumbing business from our 20 acre lifestyle block, but are wanting to semi retire and get away on more breaks. Staff will be working from another part of the property while we are away.
Our Home & Location
We have a comfortable, 10 year old home with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms & 4 toilets, and all the usual things like wifi, Sky tv, dishwasher etc. We have an indoor heated pool which is available for use by our sitters. We are just over a kilometre from the town boundary, so only 5 minutes from shops. Ashburton is ideally located an hour from Christchurch, and for day trips to Geraldine, Tekapo, Southern Alps (Lord of the Rings filming location is an hour away) and many walking and mountain biking areas, as well as skifields. Popular Lake Hood is 10 minutes drive away, so there is plenty to fill your days between caring for our "family".
Responsibilities & Pets
We need someone to feed the cat, dog and 2 mini horses in the mornings, and the same in the evenings with the donkeys getting hay then too. The days would be your own to explore the area, other than keeping the house clean and tidy.
