Kiwi House Sitters

The largest pet & house sitting site in New Zealand

COVID-19 Information


These are challenging times for all of us, especially those who love to travel and are planning to house sit or engage a house sitter while they are away. Due to everyone’s commitment to the current restrictions, we have seen some success in ‘flattening the curve’ and are hopeful that this will lead to the lifting of some of the restrictions in place.

However, we still need to do what we can to take care of ourselves and others. Make sure you check the latest protocols:
Ministry of Health: COVID-19 (novel coronavirus)

We understand the impact this has on you as a house sitter and a home owner and the uncertainty you may be feeling given the current health crisis, but remember this is only temporary.

Many of us will be excited to travel again once it is safe to do so which means many more opportunities for house sitters, and the homeowners who engage them, when the situation improves.

In the meantime, take care of each other, follow the protocols and stay safe and well.

Please know that you can contact us if you have any questions or need assistance at any time.

As a community we will get through this together and go onto many more travel adventures.
