Sunny older style family home
Hi there, we have lived in Queenstown since 1985 and in our current house for 15 years. We are keen skiiers, paddle boarders and general outdoor enthusiasts. We sold our screenprinting, embroidery and uniform business in 2105 and have been pursuing other interests since then. Millie is our old a faithful friend who enjoys company but due to her arthritis, cannot walk very far very fast. Our children are 23 and 26 and enjoying there lives away from home. We have created a comfortable and welcoming home and as much as we enjoy our time here we look forward to holidays away, hence requiring someone wonderful to come and stay and look after Millie.
Our Home & Location
We overlook the Frankton Arm, facing the North. Although not lakefront we are in a cul de Sac on the lake side of the main road and have clear views of the lake and mountains. There is easy walking access to the lake and walking track. the walking track takes you all the way into town, or around the peninsula to Jacks Point. As biking is a wonderful transport option this is ideal. There is now a ferry service to Queenstown. The house has 3 bedrooms, with the master opening onto the front deck. The heating is mainly with a wood burner and plenty of firewood is always available, with kindling gathering at the lake edge. We have a vege garden and plenty of fresh herbs. The kitchen is also well equipped for the keen cook. It is warm and comfortable!
Responsibilities & Pets
Responsibilities would include Millie's care and lawn mowing and to eat the veges. Millie is fed in the morning and evening and has medication at both meals. She also enjoys an apple as treat when you go out. She sleeps in her kennel, although we no longer shut the kennel door at night so she can get out if required.
