House sitting classifieds


Friday, 16 June 2017

Kia ora koutou, my partner and I are very excited for our impending move to Dunedin (I will be commencing my PhD at Portobello and my partner is a self-employed landscape gardener). We are looking for a place for when we first come down in Sep/Oct while we get ourselves settled in to Ōtepoti life. If you or someone you know is going to have a house lying fallow for two or more weeks around this time please get in touch. We are 28 and 29 years old, non drinkers, non smokers and vegetarian (most days). Can provide house sitting references if desired.
