Middle Earth, and so much more, New Zealand is richly blessed with extraordinary natural beauty, magnificent food and wine, a wonderfully rich and diverse culture and some of the friendliest people (and Hobbits) on earth.

Come for the adventure, the snow, the food, the wine... or the natural geo-thermal springs, the tramping, the boating... we could go on. New Zealand will take your breath away, and every region has something very special to offer.

New Zealand is also a fantastic place to House Sit. The locals are seriously nice and they like to get out for adventures themselves, so you're likely to find houses in some pretty spectacular places.

House Sitting and Pet Sitting in New Zealand

Better for the pets

Pet sitting means that the sitter is living in the pet's home while the owner is away. The pets get to stay in their own familiar environment, with human company and love—making it the very best option for the pet's health and emotional well-being, in most cases.

Free for owners

It is 100% free for owners join and find pet sitters—and the pet sitters will usually sit for free. Oh, and they provide in-house security and garden maintenance at the same time.

We are the original Pet Sitting site

We've been doing pet sitting much longer than any of the new "pet" websites—most home owners get house sitters because they want someone to look after their pets i.e. pet sitting. Over more than a decade we have developed many layers of robust security and a surprisingly easy and rewarding user experience.

House Sitting in South Island, New Zealand

North Island

Rich with Maori culture, the North Island offers a kaleidoscope of wonderful destinations and experiences. Check out the geo-thermal springs, the beautiful islands around Northland and Auckland, volcanos, bays, forests, cities and towns and of course, "The Shire" around Matamata.

The North Island is renowned for food & wine - it's an obsession, and one that translates into world famous vineyards and an array of cafes and restaurants to satisfy every palate. Delectable seafood matched with peerless white wines, artisan cheeses, nuts, chocolate, oysters and olive oil - just some of the delicious reasons to visit the North Island, and stay a long time.

South Island

Superb skiing is just one of the joys of the South Island. Stellar wines from the Malborough region are another. Fishing, tramping, rock-climbing, kayaking, jet-boats, mountain biking and a host of other diversions await.

The exquisitely beautiful Queenstown is gateway to the ski fields, and a wonderful destination in its own right. It's almost impossible to have a bad view, no matter where you end up house sitting.

Nelson and Marlborough host wineries, festivals and purveyors of fine foods - in great abundance. Did we mention the incredible seafood? Fiordland, way down south is the home of dramatic, wildly beautiful scenery, complete with dolphins, waterfalls and as much adventure sport as you're willing to throw yourself at.
