Specialist Senior SitterJonty: 60s, Retired international traveler and handyman Hi, I'm Jonty. In short with this housesitting thing, I'm having the time of my life.  I'm showing as new to this website, but I have three years of experience with kiwihousesitters having 37 housesits there.I will house-sit for as little as 2 days. I'm a specialist house-sitter/pet-sitter. I'm a cheerful widower, a non drinker and non smoker.I take pride in leaving your property at least as clean and tidy as I found it. I will spoil your pets as if they were my own.I've done lots of house-sits mostly in and around Auckland, Warkworth, Whangarei, Bay of Islands, and the Far North.I have my own basic home in Whangarei (Memorial Drive/Parahaki area), where I have a painting and wallpapering project making some progress. For me, house sitting gives me the occasional chance to relax, to see some sights, and to watch if you have Sky or Netflix.I have a rural background and lots of world travel to ... read more

Hi everyone,My name is Ana and I've recently submitted my PhD thesis at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. I've been a housesitter for over 5 years now, in Australia, Samoa and mostly in New Zealand while completing my degree. I'm currently in Tahiti and will be traveling around for a few months. I absolutely love housesitting and I take it seriously as a job. I spend plenty of time at home (studying, reading and writing), making sure the pets aren't alone. If the pets usually sleep with their owners, I let them sleep in my bed too. All my experiences so far have been really positive and I've loved every single one of the pets I looked after. I take care of them as they were my own/ I also keep my environment tidy as it keeps my mind tidy as well. Here's the link to my Kiwihousesitters profile, since I haven't done much housesitting through other websites, so most of my references are on it - https://www.kiwihousesitters.co.nz/house-sitter-pet-sitter/amaark77 ... read more

Greetings homeowners, No doubt you've read a bunch of other profiles all saying how trustworthy and responsible they are. As well as their long history of experience with house sitting and pet minding. We have all of that and don't want to harp on about it. You'll see it very quickly when you first chat with us :) What we do want to tell you about, however, is our goals and desires over the coming years. We are absolutely obsessed with animals! We enjoy nothing more than spending time with them because of the happiness and joy they bring to us. Over the coming years, we have a dream to buy a house and are currently saving hard for a deposit. Once we manage to do that, we will get all the little fur babies of our own! The list is fairly extensive. A husky, a spoodle, a samoyed, a chowchow, a cat, a few bunnies and maybe even a duck. Yes, we are clearly a bit crazy!!This is why we love house sitting so much. Not only do we get to spend time with animals whic... read more

Hi we are Anne and Owen Brider.   We are a couple in our mid-50's and are returning to NZ for me to take up a National Facilities Manager role.  I will be working typically 9-5 but my husband will not be working initially so will be able to be at home with pets as required.  Owen is a keen gardener and has been working as a pool technician and all around gardening guru while here on the Gold Coast.  We both absolutely love animals and would look after your pets with care, kindness and of course love.  We would love to walk your dogs, take them out riding in the car (if that's ok with you), take them to the park and beach and wherever else we may go.  Cat's are awesome too, although not so keen to go riding in the car we would love and pamper them just the same.  We have had dogs and cats  our entire lives, prior to leaving Auckland to move to Australia we also had two pigs and two goats along with three cats and two dogs so are fully pet tra... read more

Rural House Sit Specialists Ian & Heather: 69 / 63, Retired If you have a farm or lifestyle block, you know it's not easy to get away for a break!

Ian is a farmer's son, qualified in Agriculture and Horticulture, has extensive experience with all types of farm animals, including working dogs, and is competent with all types of farm and garden machinery.  Heather, also from a farming background, has owned horses and ponies and loves caring for and exercising dogs and cuddling cats. We're non smokers, physically fit and enjoy excellent health. We'll look after your pets, livestock and property as if they were our own. As long term property owners, we've had some wonderful house sitters who looked after our pets, garden and house, enabling us to travel overseas regularly.

We, Sue & David, are a mature couple who own a large property in the hill country of New Zealand. We have a farm (beef cattle, a horse stud which our son & daughter-in-law own, and a sheep farm which is leased to a younger farmer). We also have a successful farmstay/fishing lodge business which can host up to 22 people per night. Now that we have retired from the sheep farming (though not the cattle) David has become the gardener on our 4 acres of garden. The lawns take 5 hours a week to mow, on a ride-on mower!Sue is the chef for the guests, and we all work in the cleaning and maintenance of our 2 holiday houses and our in-house accommodation. So we are well used to ensuring that everything is kept clean and well organised. In the New Zealand winter, we take people on guided tours of Europe, as we speak French, German and a little Italian. We would prefer to house sit in Europe, and in the months from June to October. We have been travelling to Europe nearly every year fo... read more
