Loving pet and home caretakers available after 18 December (Northland; throughout NZ)

cats are OK - purrr
dogs are OK - wooof

Greetings Neighbours,

We continue to have wonderful experiences as property caretakers/managers and are available to commit to your needs anytime after the 18th of December (for the summer holidays) or in January, 2020.

We usually have longer-term positions, but are open to short-term stays when the timing fits in with our current commitments. Let us know when you need us.

As a mature, financially secure, semi-retired couple in our 50's, we have over 20 years of experience managing remote lodges, luxury homes, working ranches, an Airbnb, and their employees/volunteers.

Obviously, there is a genuine need for qualified people like us. We are in demand primarily via word-of-mouth, but the timing isn't always right, hence this outreach. If we are not available, we know of other caretakers that we may be able to refer you to.

We are currently at our coconut plantation in the Blue Lagoon, Fiji and continuing our sustainability/education programmes with the Fijian Government's Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, and the Ministry of Education.

I have designed ecovillages in Australasia and taught sustainable building throughout New Zealand and Fiji before setting up our overseas homes in Fiji and in Mexico. We plan to return to New Zealand 18 December 2019 or early January 2020. We are available to lovingly look after your animals, garden, ranch, land, home, AirBnB, or rentals. Additionally, we have repeated experiences looking after a dog rescue operation, in property and estate management.

We especially enjoy looking after dogs and cats, as well as goats, ducks, and chickens. We are also skilled at restoring gardens and creating Hybrid Adobe landscaping (for example curving stairways).

People know us as Leslie and Felipe: a responsible, versatile, harmonious, professional and light-hearted caretaking couple. We've already worked together as a team for five years.

Our extensive CV/resume details decades of caretaking, management, ecotourism, teaching, permaculture and building experience (including University of Canterbury; in Northland; UC Santa Cruz and many other universities). Languages: English, French, German, Spanish.

We are strong, fit, calm, personable, tested and organized.
Let's talk soon.

Please reach us via email and we will provide direct contact via mobile/text/WhatsApp etc.
Our CV, references and photos are available upon request.

Thanks and enjoy your holidays,
Leslie and Felipe
