Housekeeper / Dog Sitter Needed

David from Upper Moutere

We need a live-in housekeeper for our beautiful property on Bronte Road East near Mapua
Accommodation is in a fully furnished, modern and comfortable independent apartment with its own kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and simply stunning views over the Waimea Inlet.
The Cottage is offered rent-free and electricity, gas and unlimited fast internet are included.
Duties include housework, cleaning, ironing, lawn mowing, and caring for our large friendly dog – sometimes at weekends. A genuine love of dogs is vital.
The position would suit a fit and energetic single lady who would appreciate the beautiful and tranquil setting. Flexibility is critical, so the position would be best suited to someone without other employment commitments.

The property has extensive gardens with direct access to the Inlet. There is a swimming pool and sauna to enjoy.

The apartment has been let as a B&B in the recent past. Google: Applewood Mapua – you will find it on and AirB&B
