Tapuwae - Beach paradise
I’m a self-employed social media consultant and own my own business. I love to travel and my job takes me around New Zealand often. I’ve been based at the beach since January 2018 and absolutely love my little community. As I’m early 30’s I still love to travel, which means my only fur baby, Ducati needs a friendly face to care for him while I’m away, which is why I’ve decided to join Trusted Housesitters.
Our Home & Location
The house is a 3 bedroom, wooden exterior home, based 1km from popular local attraction Himatangi Beach. I’m turning it from a family holiday house into a home over time. Comfortable, and quiet in a great village. I also have a garden which does require watering in summer but most of it is easy care. There is also a seasonal vegetable garden which sitters can eat from, as well as care for while sitting. I am 30min from Palmerston North and 2hrs from Wellington. We have a local cosmopolitan club (pub), Dairy and Takeaway store, so the village is self-sufficient.
Responsibilities & Pets
I have one fur baby who goes by the name Ducati. He is a 3 year old Tabby, who is highly independent. He does like to bring mice, birds and lizards into the house so if you’re not good at catching or dealing with presents I suggest this sit isn’t for you. He loves cuddles, kisses and sleeping on the bed at night (not always). He is an extremely human cat so is the best of company you can have in a pet.
