NEW ZEALAND

CAT AND HOUSESITTER NEEDED for three weeks in Wanganui from
Sunday, the 30th of November to Sunday, the 21st of December.
Wanganui is on the west coast of the North Island about half way
between New Plymouth and Wellington (about 2.5 hours/200 km north
of Wellington). There are quite a lot of things to do in the area
and it is a good base for exploring from. Our property is set on
a big garden, just on the outskirts of the city (so own transport
is essential). The setting is semi-rural, quiet, and relaxing.
There is an outdoor swimming pool, TV, internet access etc. It is
quiet but our adult children and previous back packers have all
loved staying here - it is a great place to relax and unwind at.
We work in Wellington and are usually away for at least three
nights during the week but sometimes for the whole week. You need
to be here Monday to Friday (regardless of whether one of us is
here or not) but over the weekends you are welcome to travel or
stay away. You are equally welcome to stay on the property. You
are free to work elsewhere by day, including when we are away, as
long as you stay overnight and complete the 'duties' each day. In
return for free accommodation in a fully self-contained, modern,
and furnished unit (with lounge/bedroom, kitchenette and
ensuite), you would be responsible for feeding and paying
attention to very spoiled cats, making sure the property is
maintained (e.g. lawn mowing using a ride-on mower, sweeping
paths, light gardening etc.), and feeding the free range chickens
(approximately 20 hours of light duties per week). You need to
supply your own food and cook your own meals. This would suit a
responsible couple, but a single or two singles are welcome
provided you (both) have NZ residency or citizenship or hold a
valid visitor's visa/permit (work permit is not required), have
your own transport, love cats, and can supply a CV/resume and
recent references if requested. If you are interested and would
like further information please send brief details about
yourself/yourselves (e.g. where you are from, how old you are,
what experience you have in similar roles, how you would plan to
spend your time here, and your travel and work activities/plans
while in New Zealand) to "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Note: Contact

CARETAKER WANTED for a Mountain Ranch in Pollock Pines. A two
bedroom mobile home is available in exchange for help around the
ranch and house. There is room for horses over two acres already
fenced for the caretaker. There is also a very rustic cabin and
plenty of trailer space available. I am looking for somebody with
experience with horses or people with carpentry/handyman skills.
Prefer retired or stay-at-home people. This is an opportunity for
someone who wants to live the homesteading lifestyle. Help raise
livestock, garden and harvest fruit and share in the bounty.
There are two trout streams on the property. Plenty of places to
garden. There is an apple orchard over one hundred sixty years
old still bearing sixteen different varieties of apples. There
are also raspberries, gooseberries and loganberries to be
harvested. Need help restoring the house that has half fallen
down - it was built in 1869. The ranch is semi-remote, located
five miles to closest neighbor but only fifteen minutes on good
roads to Pollock Pines with major shopping stores and schools.
There is excellent cell phone reception. The ranch is in
generator country which means you need to provide your own
generator - it works, as I have lived here over twenty five
years. The trailer appliances run on propane. We get quite a bit
of snow in the winter so a Four Wheel Drive is essential. There
are possible job opportunities with the right people. This is a
one hundred sixty acre timber property. I have a sawmill, kiln
and woodworking tools. I would like to find somebody interested
in helping expand my lumber, cabinets and furniture sales. Also
interested in turning the ranch into an equestrian campground and
give guided horseback riding in the adjacent thousands of acres
of US forest land. Would like to find someone that would like to
help in that endeavor. I do have another caretaker, so everything
is not dependent upon just one caretaker. I'm not looking for
anybody that just wants a place to hang their hat. No drug or
alcohol abusers please. There is a background check required.

AUSTRALIA

CARETAKER NEEDED. We are looking for an honest and reliable
couple or single person to caretake our 40,000 acre property,
95km southwest of Winton (11/4 hour's drive from Winton on the
Jundah Road) in exchange for a free house (shearer's quarters)
electricity and telephone. There is Satellite Digital 'Free to
Air' TV reception, but no Internet. The quarters are not a
palace, but are comfortable. Alternatively, if you had your own
caravan you would still have the use of all facilities. Our
property, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is currently drought declared,
although we had rain in April over some of the property. The
grass that grew from that is almost gone, but the stock that are
still there are in good condition. Because of the drought, we
have been away on the Stock Route with the bulk of our cattle
since June 2013. We are presently in the Emerald area with them.
We still have about 200 head of cattle left on Namarva and are
feeding them lick. We have had someone living in the quarters but
he is now moving on and so we need someone to take his place.
There really isn't anything much to do apart from feeding one dog
and a few pigeons; a few poddy calves that are getting a feed
supplement; keeping the water up to the bit of a garden that is
left at the main homestead and putting out the odd bag of lick
for the cattle. You are welcome to try your hand at growing a few
veggies if you'd like, although the weather is probably getting a
bit warm for that. There are two bores not far from the house
which would need checking every couple of days. We have an old
4WD Hilux for use on the property but it is unregistered so you
would need your own vehicle for going to town. We are more or
less just needing someone to be around the place because we have
a lot of equipment etc. there and wouldn't like any of it to
"walk". Namarva is within a radius of 60km to Lark Quarry (if you
are interested in Dinosaurs) and about the same distance -
possibly a little bit more - to Opalton. Winton is a friendly
country town with a decent sized Hospital and Medical Centre
(doctor in attendance); Chemist; Bakery; News Agency; Mechanics;
three Grocery Shops and really you can get most things somewhere
in town. If you are looking for somewhere peaceful and rather
isolated to pull up for a while, then this might be ideal for
you. Long or short-term to be mutually agreed (we're looking for
someone for months rather than weeks). We really could use your
help. Please call "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Note: Contact information

dishwasher, air conditioning, ducted heating, TV in most rooms,
Wi-Fi, free local and interstate phone calls and on street
parking. I have one indoor dog Bee Bee, a five-year-old female
Smithfield Heeler cross and Fee Fee, a six-year-old female cat
that lives outside. Fee Fee isn't happy with dogs and she doesn't
like to be held but will brush up against you out of the
property. They both have access to dry biscuits and water daily
and have one meal at night. Bee Bee strives for company and
affection. Make her sit before giving her affection or food. She
does sleep on my bed with me at night; she may or may not do that
with others. She is very good with people but doesn't like a lot
of noise, tension and sudden movements, so I wouldn't suggest
children. She does love a walk and can walk well on a lead if you
are firm with her. I suggest about 20 minutes every few days if
you like. Even though she is five she can still chew things left
on the floor, just be careful. She is allowed on the couch facing
the road and will probably cuddle up to you. It is tempting to
over feed her so try not to. I am in the process of renovating
the house. At the present moment half the carpet has been removed
to replace some timber flooring and most of my 'stuff' is in the
sunroom. My next step is to purchase carpet and have it laid. It
may happen by June 4th. The house is certainly livable with
plenty of room and furniture. I am especially looking for someone
who is available to stay each night and on the three occasions,
to help with consistence. I would very much like to meet you
before I go away and see if 'we' are a match, so you feel
comfortable in my house and Bee Bee is someone you can feel close
to. Please email "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Note: Contact information
