Airbnb ?...holiday accommodation ?

Debra from Herne Bay

Hi Community ,
As things are changing yet again and once again we find ourselves in a situation of uncertainty , I'm wondering if any Airbnb or holiday accomodation owners would like the stability of a regular weekly income for a minimum of 12 months ...

HI I'm Debra Harris and I am a professional House and animal carer.
I have spent the last two years House sitting all over NZ and latterly Europe and prior to Covid I had sits booked right through until November. Understandably they have all been cancelled and I found myself needing to think of a strategy for at least 12 months.
As the lease comes to an end in my current rental I would love to secure something as soon as possible .
I am in need of a rental property and my wish list is :

*2 bedroom ....
*A House , apartment or a townhouse ...
*Partly furnished ,
*Light and warm
*A minimum 12 month lease

I come with 15 impeccable references , all of whom are happy to offer verbal references to support the written ones . I am a non smoker and have no pets .

Please be in touch if you have or you know of or know someone who may have something suitable for me to hunker down in for 12 months until I can resume my fabulous lifestyle :)...

Have a nice day, stay safe and stay well ..

Kindest regards
