Fancy a break in Blenheim, Marlborough, NZ?
Myself, husband Paul and daughter Chloe moved to NZ 6 years ago from the UK. We own a small osteopathy clinic in Blenheim, NZ where my husband works as an osteopath. We are looking for a house and pet sitter in order for us to go back to the UK for a few weeks before heading to Spain for Paul to take part in a Multisport World Championship. We are looking at being away from Blenheim for around 4 weeks.
Our Home & Location
Blenheim is situated in the heart of Marlborough, the famous wine region of NZ's South Island. There are plenty of activities to do and places to visit. Blenheim is 30 mins from Picton, 1.5hrs from Nelson and 2hrs from Kaikoura. Our house is located in Springlands which is a quiet suburb situated about a 5 min drive or 30 min walk from the town centre. It is in walking distance to two supermarkets, a pharmacy and post office, cafe and a Speights Ale House. Your accommodation is a guest bedroom with it's own ensuite which overlooks the large back garden. The section size is roughly 2,000m2.
Responsibilities & Pets
Wilson is an energetic but loveable Springer that would require two walks/swims a day ranging between 30-45mins minimum each walk and plenty of cuddles. He is a retired trained Gun Dog and therefore is not very good on a lead. There are plenty of walks to take him on locally including a dog friendly park in walking distance and the Taylor River Reserve which is a 2 min drive that allows him to run off lead. Buffy the cat is becoming more cuddly in her old age but as long as she is fed she is happy. The 4 chickens are very easy going and may occasionally produce you an egg!
