**We are currently looking for helpers/housesitters from 26 January to 11 February**

We are Lisa and Graham. We have half a hectare of pines, bush and gardens with a beautiful 1890s cottage we share with our cat overlooking the ocean just outside Dunedin. We are experienced hosts who like to meet new people from all over the world.

This time we are looking for helpers to house sit (we prefer if you have reviews from hosts or previous house sitting references). We are looking for house sitters while we are away on our honeymoon, who can also do some gardening and landscaping work. We ask for approx 2 hours work a day per person (you can organise this however you like, happy for you to do 2hrs each day, 4 hrs a day with a day off etc...) and in exchange we will stock up our pantry with you favorite foods and will leave you with some cash to purchase more food while we are away. The work is mostly gardening and landscaping. No special skills required but you need a basic level of fitness as the work is outside and physical. We will be home on the first night on the 26th (Sunday), flying out on Monday the 27th so we can show you what to do in the gardens while we are gone.

You will get accommodation in a comfortable room in our cottage with your own bathroom and food and cash to cover all your meals while you are here. Your room has lovely bush views, a couch, queen bed and your own full bathroom. Unlimited internet, laundry etc, and we have a large TV with netflix and lots of movies.

The cottage has the most amazing views - the photos of the sunrise and cruise ship were taken from our lounge :)

Would suit a couple or friends who don't mind sharing a queen bed. People of any age and nationality are welcome.

We are a 15 minute drive from Dunedin city centre. There are some great beaches and walks only a 10 minute drive away where you can see the local wildlife including seals, sea lions and penguins and sometimes dolphins too :) We have paddle boards (one hard board and one inflatable board) you can use to explore the bays and islands.

Contact us for more :)
