Canakiwi animal carers
We are a non smoking Kiwi and Canadian couple and have been on this site for over 7 years. We were sitters for several years before we built our own home and made many wonderful friends both two legged and four through Kiwi House sitters.
We have sold our NZ home and now have a place in Noosaville as well as our Canadian home in B.C. With our transient life style having animals of our own is not an option so being animal lovers we fill this void by pet minding while we are in New Zealand.
Paul has extensive experience with horses and cattle having owned a farm in Cambridge and I was previously married to a veterinarian so have lots of experience with smaller animals.
We both enjoy gardening and Paul is a great handyman. We
have looked after a horse farm, B&B's and animals ranging from cats, dogs, alpacas and sheep to tropical fish.
We really miss having pets of our own after so many years with various ones so for us happiness is being able to play with other peoples pets while their owners are on holiday!
" Paul and Deirdre looked after our Devonport home for three weeks. We couldn't be more happy with their service. Deirdre is a very organised person, who made me feel very secure about leaving them both to look after things here. Nothing was a problem for Paul, and the lawn and gardens were very tidy when we returned. They were very kind to our pets, especially our dog, who got lots of walks and cuddles. The place was so neat when we returned, I wish they could house sit every week! We also enjoyed their company, and numerous friends and neighbours have been asking if they can book them sometime."

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
We have no hesitation in recommending Deirdre and Paul as House
They have House Minded for us several times, and we have returned to an
immaculate home and garden. Both Deirdre and Paul are trustworthy and
Tireless and take pride in their work. They also have gardening knowledge and a love of plants, so you can be assured that the garden will be well looked after.
Please feel free to phone us.

Paul and Deirdre house sat our property and pets. The house and grounds were maintained in perfect order and animals well fed and loved .
We are looking forward to them returning this summer and can highly recommend them to any body looking for a caring couple to look after their property .
