About this sitter

We are a recently retired New Zealand couple looking for the opportunity to travel during our New Zealand winters. We will consider any opportunities that are presented to us. I am a retired school teacher who spent the last 3 years doing maintenance work at a chemical plant, and my wife Christine worked at various jobs during her career. We own our home in Papamoa, Tauranga, in the beautiful Bay of Plenty region, New Zealand.

Why they want to house sit

We want to be able to explore different parts of the world, and escape the New Zealand winter. House sitting will give us the opportunity to explore regions more in depth, experience different cultures and save money while doing so.

Their experience

In July 2019 we house sat a friends property on the Gold Coast, Queensland while she went off on a four week holiday in South America. With her permission, we replanted some garden areas, repaired her fence and replaced a blind as well as keeping the lawns and palms tidy.

What can they bring to the assignment

We both enjoy gardening, and keeping our property in good order. My experience doing 3 years maintenance work could be helpful. We enjoy meeting new people and taking care of animals.
