Last Updated: November 21, 2017

I have a room free from Dec 26 2017 through to 2 January 2018, then no spaces until February 2018.

My children have all grown up so I live on my own in a warm, comfortable 3-brm house on the flat part of Dunedin. It's close to supermarket/shops, 20 minutes walk to the beach and 45 minutes walk to the Octagon (centre of town) or you could use the good bus service and be in the Octagon in under 20 minutes.

I work from about 1pm to 10pm or later, therefore I get the mornings free. I spend way too much of my spare time cycling or hiking so I am looking someone to help keep the garden in order and the housework under control. For accommodation only, I reckon 2 hours of work a day (you choose when you want to do it) is fair if you are only staying a short time, but if you stay for longer than a week I ask for 12 hours total in a week, with some of that being in the weekend when you help out a friend of mine.

For this you get a place to sleep and love from McIntosh, the ultra-friendly cat. There's two bedrooms for you to choose from. One has a double bed, the other has a single bed.

Since I'm seldom home for mealtimes I ask that you supply and cook your own food, although maybe we could share in the weekends; if I am home! I'm mostly vegetarian and a cycle commuter.

I would enjoy sharing some of the wonderful Dunedin/Otago walking tracks and biking trails with you. Or it is fine with me if you want to share my home but do your own thing in your spare time.

I always check your profile and host feedback before responding and prefer at least a day's notice.
