Hello! We would like someone to stay with us between the 20th and 30th of April minimum, who is good with animals and will look after them and feed them when we go away for a few days. When we are at home we like to go to the beach and go bushwalking and are happy to take you too.

About us:
We are an active family and we like to get out and about spending time at the beach or walking in the bush. We are healthy eaters and enjoy meeting new people. We also have a super affectionate 2 year old dog called Roxy and a wonderful new addition to our family, a very cuddly 3 year old dog called Apollo. If our family sounds like it would suit you, please contact us.

Please look at our testimonials to see how helpers have enjoyed staying with us.

OVERVIEW OF OUR HOME;
We have lovely mountain views, we are a short bus ride to the city centre, and we have a large spacious double bedroom with it's own spacious bathroom and separate toilet.

The back garden borders a reserve that leads to the foothills of Mount Wellington. You can walk to the top of the mountain from our house. At night, the wallabies come out to feed and we can often see them from our kitchen window and they will sit and watch as we walk past. I also have two bird baths, and a birdscaped garden to bring in many of the native birds, including some sweet little honey eaters, and one very bossy one.

We get all day sun when the sun is low in the sky, making us warmer in the cooler months. And of course, we have a lovely view of Mount Wellington and the valley below. There is a bus stop only metres along the road and there is a rivulet at the bottom of the street where we like to have a paddle and a picnic on warm evenings. My house is a ten minute drive from the city, and only a few minutes from shops.


Absolutely NO SMOKING anywhere please, whilst staying with me, inside or outside, or even coming in with it on your clothes. I am sorry, but I dislike it intensely for what it does to people. (Just a wee bit passionate about it!)


I am in the process of updating our photo's as my children are a fair bit older than the old photo's I had up. So will hopefully have some better photos soon.

I look forward to hearing from you!!

Cheers,

Sarah
