    Description

    We are seeking non smoking/non vaping housesitter and/or petsitter (or sitters - could be a couple or a family) from either 25th or 26th December to 21 January 2023 who has a car. We have a very elderly and very friendly laidback labradoodle dog who loves company. He sits for food and treats, thank goodness as we now have to medicate him twice a day. He gently takes his tablets wrapped in ham out of your hand. He needs a carer who can diligently give his medication morning and night. We also have a very elderly cat and two younger other cats (6yrs old). Our old cat needs to be given medication for her joint pain put in her food at night. Both our old animals are low energy and really enjoy company. Our dog should not be exercised off a lead and is only to be taken for slow, short, easy walks. Alternatively, we have a large property with lots of lawn (and a giant trampoline) and he just be taken out to the toilet a few times a day. For these reasons we would prefer someone who is at home most of the day or in and out of home during the day. For this reason travellers or a family visiting Auckland would be perfect! Our younger sister cats (6yrs) are fun to play with and love pats. All three Burmese cats and the dog all love each other, so they are one happy family! We work from home and our dog is not used to being left for more than six hours alone. Our home is newly renovated, with brand new carpets and blinds and is clean & tidy. We have a large family home. Our master bedroom has a super king bed and ensuite and our garage has internal access. We have two kids bedrooms (which could be made available), two other bathrooms with bath and rain shower head. A newly renovated kitchen with benches and an oven that would be any bakers dream! Our housesitters only responsibilities would be to look after, medicate and care for our animals and to keep our newly renovated home clean and tidy. We do not have a pool, but do have a small garden and lawns that require mowing if that is possible. We are within walking distance to many of Birkenhead’s wonderful bush walks and some great quiet beaches and children's parks and playgrounds. We are 7 minutes walk to the bus that goes directly to Takapuna or the City, 12 minutes walk to New World supermarket, Dominos Pizza, Sushi etc and 15 minutes walk to Birkenhead shops and library. The bus only takes 20minutes to get to Britomart (city centre bus and train transport hub) or Takapuna. You can even get the Ferry from Birkenhead Wharf to the city with ease! If you are able to give our animals some love and attention while enjoying relaxing in a lovely home that overlooks natural bush and a massive oak tree, please contact us.

    1. We are seeking a housesitter and/or petsitter from either 25th or 26th December to 21 January 2023.
    2. Our dog needs medication given am and pm each a day. He gently takes his tablets wrapped in ham out of your hand. He needs a carer who can diligently ensure he swallows these and they have to be given an hour after food.
    3. We also have a very elderly cat who needs to have her pain medication added to her food at night.
    4. Our dog should not be exercised off a lead and should only to be taken for slow, short, easy walks a couple times a day or taken outside to wander around our large lawn at least 3 times each day.
    5. Our old cat uses the cat litter tray indoors so this must be cleaned twice a week.
    6. Our animals all crave a lot of love and pats so they would need people who will pay them attention and enjoy cats on laps at night.
    7. Our three cats need to be brushed (which they love) at least once a week.
    8. Our dog goes to the groomer so is clean and tidy, but can be either bathed or showered if needed, as needed.
    9. We have a small garden and lawns that require mowing if that is possible.
    10. If any of our pets were to become unwell we would expect you to be able to ring the Vet and take them (5-7 mins drive) to the vet for a check up.

    Our home is newly renovated, with brand new carpets and blinds and is clean & tidy. No smoking or vaping is allowed inside, but you could do so outside if the smell is kept out of the house. We have a large family home. Our master bedroom has a super king bed and ensuite and our garage has internal access. We have two lounges (with 4 TV streaming services but not Sky TV) and two kids bedrooms (which could be made available), a family bathroom with bath and rain shower head and a separate toilet off our dedicated study (with high speed broadband internet). A newly renovated kitchen with benches and an oven that would be any bakers dream! If you would enjoy being welcomed by furry friends who are keen for a pat or who want to cuddle in your lap while you enjoy relaxing in a lovely home that overlooks natural bush and a massive oak tree, ours is the home for you! We also have a dishwasher, microwave and nespresso machine in our butlers pantry and washing machine and dryer in the garage. Plus a huge washing line outside for drying clothes in the sun or another large one inside our garage. We have a deck over looking our beautiful oak tree, with a table that seats four and an older gas BBQ which is great for summer nights.
