About this sitter

Thank you for looking at our profile, we are Emma (43) and Ben (36), a couple from New Zealand.

2024 availability:
March & April in USA, Central or South America
November & December (and onwards) open to worldwide offers

We are business consultants that travel while working on website development and marketing projects for our customers at home in New Zealand and all over the world. You can take a look at our business here:

We have been travelling, house sitting and volunteering since 2015 across Latin America, Asia and Europe.

We own a home in New Zealand that is rented in our absence, so you can be assured we understand the trust needed in someone else caring for your property.

We are willing to travel, have references available, and are very happy to chat further on Skype etc, please just let us know.

Kindest Regards

Why they want to house sit

Prior to our travel we both held high level management roles within large corporations in New Zealand, but decided instead to set up our own business that we are able to travel and experience the world with.

We are slow travellers and house sitting for us is perfect as it allows us to discover new places, not just tick "must sees" off a list. House sitting also enables us to focus on customer projects for our business, a "win-win" as you can be assured we are spending time with your pets at home while you are away.

Their experience

We have a huge amount of experience house sitting. We also have experience running businesses and guest houses as required as part of a house sitting assignment.

We have vast experience looking after animals of all sorts, and spend time volunteering with a variety of different animal rescue centres.

A selection of house sits we have completed:
- a property in Belize for 3 months
- a farm in Argentina looking after pigs, horses, dogs, cats, chickens and ducks for 2 months
- a guest house with 2 dogs (and guests!) in Sri Lanka for 6 months
- a hostel with guests in Panama for 3 months
- a lifestyle block with chickens, a dog and cat in New Zealand for 2 weeks
- a holiday property in New Zealand for 6 months

What can they bring to the assignment

We are very personable, and are a couple you can trust 100%.
Animal lovers and also both previous dog, cat, rabbit, fish and guinea pig owners, we have no qualms about ensuring your pets are looked after and loved.

We are happy to assist with any online needs you have while we house sit for you. If you have a website that you would like updated, or if you would like a new one this is absolutely something we could do for you while we stay. We can also assist with your social media channels if this is helpful.

Some of our house sitting has involved managing guest houses in an owner's absence, which we are very happy to do. We can take care of guests, welcoming them and making sure they have a great time, and are competent staff managers.

Managing properties means we also have a hands on practical approach to maintenance as required.
