About Us

House sitting in New Zealand

We are one of New Zealand's favourite House and Pet Sitting sites. We provide a service that is really simple to use, backed by consistently friendly service, which is very, very effective - it works really well!

With the launch of our new site, we are very excited about what lies ahead. House Sitting is becoming far more popular - for obvious reasons. With our new site we hope to be able to create even more opportunities for fantastic house sitting across this beautiful nation.

Family owned and run

Kiwi House Sitters is a family business, with a focus on great support and continual improvement. We've been helping people organise House Sitting for many years now, so there isn't much we don't know about house and pet sitting. We like to keep it very simple, allowing our members to connect with each other by providing great online tools, and then getting out of the way. Over the years we have facilitated tens of thousands of successful house sits, bringing all of that house-sitting goodness to sitters, house owners and wonderful pets from Northland to Rakiura and everywhere in between.

Genuine, practical & generous, just like our members

You'll find that Kiwi House Sitters has a genuine, open-hearted spirit, which is reflected in the members we attract. All of our listings are free to browse through, our registration fees are very affordable, our support is fast and friendly - and the results are consistently good. You just need to have a quick browse through our Testimonials to see what this means for our members - they love us!

Thanks for taking the time to look around the site. Have a browse through the listings and start imagining where this could take you.

And when you've done all that, get involved - it's much easier than you think.


*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
