We live about ten minutes from the small town of Cheviot and enjoy a lovely setting in the country, surrounded by farmland. There`s a big garden, and the house is very comfortable, with good wifi too.

Our main requirement at the moment is to have someone here to look after the place as we are away quite a bit of the time. We would love it if you could do some gardening and keep the place clean! Taking the dogs for a short walk most days would be cool. It is more of a house-sitting role than a helper role, so would be better suited to a couple or two friends. We will be potentially there in the weekends, and the odd night during the week. Ideally we would like someone here for about three weeks or longer. Happy for you to go off on adventures during the weekend, as the main requirement for house and pet sitting will be during the week.

We live about ten minutes drive from the coast (Gore Bay, a great surfing spot). We`ve got 2 lovely house dogs, 1 retired sheep dog, 2 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 kunekune pigs and 3 cats.

Harris Meats is located next door but far enough away to not cause you any grief, unless you have an issue with living in the vicinity of an abattoir.

There`s lots of sporting activities around here, from walking cycling and if you are keen on surfing or fishing, the river and sea are nearby. There are also some great tramping options.

We are about 1hour 20 mins from Chch.

Please apply via email and DO NOT APPLY by phone or text. We do not accept people who apply by phone as we have had experiences where these helpers are not registered with helpx.
