I have a cute house with a view over Washington Valley within walking distance of NMIT but also just 5 minutes from the number 4 bus stop. I have a hilarious 10yo daughter with me every second week, and a homestay student from Japan until October. We have a small, fluffy dog and a bemused cat.

Rent covers all expenses except food. Unlimited Wifi, HRV, well insulated rooms and comfy couches. We have a big, but rather untamed back yard which you are more than welcome to ignore also (or not, if the mood takes you). We are an introverted, neurodiverse household, rainbow friendly and love movies, crafts and napping, we also sing a lot and love musicals, so that is worth noting. Strictly no smoking/vaping/drugs on site.

Currently the room only has a single bed, but you are welcome to bring your own if you want a larger one. Looking for someone long term, but open to short term. All ages considered. Happy to negotiate babysitting/gardening/dog walking for lower rent also.

We would love to find someone who is fun, friendly, empathetic, is looking for somewhere that is quiet (not a party house), if you like musicals then bonus points! If you like horror movies, then even better! My daughter would like someone who is fun, loves dressing up, Harry Potter, Taylor Swift and the Hunger Games, if you are good at gymnastics she will be thrilled (but this is by no means necessary!).
