About this sitter

We are a couple who have recently got together and we are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives. We both enjoy meeting new people, seeing new places and doing new things – house sitting gives us the opportunity to do that and we take the responsibility of looking after your pets and your home very seriously. Peter has been doing house sitting on his own for some time and has many 5 star references on the Kiwi and Aussie house sitters sites. Lyn, an interior designer, has been a home maker and pet owner for many years, she is house proud and very experienced with looking after animals, she has also renovated a number of homes and there isn’t much she can’t fix around the house. If you think we would be a good fit for your home and pets then we would love to house sit for you. Peter's New Zealand and Australian house sitting references can be found here:

Why they want to house sit

We enjoy looking after your pets and your home while you are away and take this responsibility seriously. We enjoy meeting new people, seeing new places and doing new things - house sitting gives us the opportunity to do so.

Their experience

Peter has done house sitting all over the world and has done 11 sits in New Zealand and Australia over the last 12 months.

Alan from Thames in New Zealand, for whom Peter did a 28 day sit said,
"From our recent experience, we wholeheartedly endorse Peter as an excellent house-sitter and pet carer. We could not have wished for a more competent and cooperative person. Peter took immaculate care of our property, tending lawns and gardens, as well as feeding and walking our two dogs and providing companionship during the day. This relationship was evident as he bid them goodbye. Our house was spotless when he departed, and he provided a thoughtful welcome home gift on our return. His communication was frequent and consistent. We will most certainly seek him out preferentially the next time we require such service and have no hesitation in recommending him to others. Peter, we most sincerely thank you and wish you well."

Peter from Whangarei in New Zealand, for whom Peter did a 7 week sit said, "Norma and I were absolutely impressed with Peter, our housesitter. He drove us to the airport and picked us up at the end of our holiday. The house was spotless, the lawns ( extensive) were mowed ,the laundry washed and dried and put away and to top it off ,a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates with a thank you card left on the table. Our Puss was fat and healthy, the pot plants thriving. We are both so thankful to him and would. count it a privilege to have his continued friendship. He is welcome at our place anytime."

What can they bring to the assignment

We have a fair amount of house sitting experience and we take every house sitting job very seriously. We have travelled extensively and spent some time off the grid which has broadened our skill sets and we can cope with most situations even those unexpected ones.
