About this sitter

We're a responsible, friendly, active, couple in our 50's, happily married for 33 years. After raising 3 wonderful children and a variety of pets in New Jersey, USA we decided it was time to sell our house and start our next adventure. Having met 35 years ago while backpacking in Australia we're doing a 360 and traveling again.

Why they want to house sit

House sitting gives us the opportunity to travel and we miss having pets and would love to spoil your "fur babies".

Their experience

Yes, we've been house and pet sitting in Wellington, New Zealand since May. We've looked after a variety of dogs, cats, fish, ducks, chickens and even a couple of sheep!

What can they bring to the assignment

We are trustworthy and having been long term home owners we know how important it is to care for a home and would be respectful of your property. We love to take long walks with dogs and cuddle with your cats and treat them as our own. You can be sure your house and pets will be well looked after, and we always put 100% into their care!

Testimonials

Highly Recommend

Tatiana and Nick have just completed a 5 month house sit at our Panama Residence. They have cared for our 3 dogs and 2 cats with loving care. 2 of our dogs are senior and 1 requiring heart medication and the other younger one partially blind requires eye drops. All need a special diet they prepared as per our instructions. They sent us pictures of our happy animals weekly. WE could see they treated them like family just as would do. The house was kept clean and tidy and they managed to change the battery on our car, changed the oil, and even renewed the licence plates for us. They interfaced very well with our local Panamanian Maintenance liaison. The house was listed and the agent reported the house was always in excellent condition when it was shown. This is a happy capable couple who we would highly recommend and will ask them back if there is another opportunity.

The best house sitters ever

Tatiana and Nick Phillips jumped in to help when our assumed house sitters decided not to take the job. Although my husband and I only got to visit with them for 1 day before we took off we have felt like we have made 2 lifelong friends ! We left them in the care of our home and our 14 year old cat whom they have spoiled ROTTEN and we couldn't be happier ! My husband and I are gone for 4 months, have 1 more to go before we are home and it has really been a blessing and a relief to have the 2 of them at the house. They have even been overseeing a rental unit that we have at our home and mixed into the community very nicely. We are hoping they will stick around for at least a few days when we get back and we will certainly have them sit again for us anytime and would highly recommend them. Nick , who has a horticulture background even contracted on to do some landscaping for us ! How great is that ?!
