About this sitter

We offer free boat sitting, pet and house sitting services.
Belinda (61) and Gary (60) are a husband and wife team who emigrated to NZ from the UK over ten years ago.

We are a semi-retired responsible, quiet and dependable couple who will treat all of your prized possessions with the TLC they deserve.

We are non-smokers/drinkers. Keen gardeners/sailors.

We'd consider a house sitting position anywhere in the world.
Please email Belinda and if all goes well we will be on our way to your place to look after your home/garden and pets soon.

Why they want to house sit

We are both avid travellers (originally from the UK) with a love of travel, boats and animals. Now that our family have flown the nest we would love to see more of the world while we can. We enjoy living like a local.

Their experience

Experienced with all aspects of house/garden/pet care. We've been homeowners for approx. 38 years.

We love animals and have had cats/dogs/chinchillas/goldfish/gerbils and hamsters. We now have a little black pug.

We love beach/mountain/lake places but are adaptable to most things!
Some French and Spanish spoken.

What can they bring to the assignment

We are a professional couple (teacher/pilot) who are semi-retired. We have been house owners ourselves for over 30 years so know how to keep your home, garden and beloved pets happy. We will love, pamper and exercise your pets as much as you do!!
We are non-smokers/drinkers and like early nights and peace and quiet- no partying.
We have gardening and animal care experience and are totally reliable.
We would tend to the garden and do any light maintenance jobs that needed doing.
We would keep owners up to date with things back home- if they wanted us to.
We will treat your home- no matter how big or small/old or new- with the utmost respect. Rest assured your beloved possessions and pets are in safe hands with us.
