About this sitter

While we like to think of ourselves as relaxed and easy-going folk, we take our housesitting duties seriously. You will be able to leave and enjoy your holiday having complete confidence in us.

I am a freelance web/graphic designer and former executive director of a leading animal advocacy organisation. With nearly 25 years experience advocating on behalf of animals I feel I have a genuine respect and kinship with animals. Susanne (from Germany) also has a deep affinity with animals and is also a qualified equine physiotherapist. In Hamburg, she was a MD managing a media agency and worked in HR for a large construction company in New Zealand.

Prior to covid, Susanne and I were living in Hamburg but decided to relocate back to New Zealand as the safer option. We built our own mobile tiny home, complete with a full kitchen, so enjoy traveling, feasting and cozy camping in between housesitting. This year we are exploring and housesitting in Australia, Asia and Europe before returning to New Zealand.

Why they want to house sit

Having looked after over 60 homes in the last 3 years (New Zealand, Australia and Singapore), we fully appreciate the responsibilities and trust that comes with staying in your home and most importantly, caring for your beloved animals.

We both love the experiences, opportunities and friendships housesitting forges. We both share a passion for traveling and meeting new people and their animals. In fact, our most memorable holidays usually include wonderful animal encounters.

Their experience

Yes. Highly experienced and our reviews on the two other housesitting sites we use, (trustedhousesitters and kiwihousesitters) speak volumes of 5-star happy animals and well-respected homes and gardens. We have over 55 reviews.

What can they bring to the assignment

We take pride in being responsible, meticulous and extremely reliable. We are swift communicators and enjoy sending regular updates while you're away. We have been invited back many times. It is in our nature to leave a place spick and span too — it's just how we roll! We are both non-smokers and fully vaccinated.
