10 year Exp International Pet/Housesitter

Retired - 10 Years Experienced International Pet/Housesitter

I've been in NZ since January & am a non smoking Aust, fit, & healthy retiree ,
Continuously pet/housesitting in Aust, Asia & Europe.for 10 years

DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS SITUATION I'VE HAD CANCELLATIONS IN NZ & AUSTRALIA.
I'VE DECIDED TO PROLONG MY STAY IN NZ, SO AM URGENTLY SEEKING PET/HOUSESITS. FROM 01/4


I arrived in NZ in January........... having never been here. before.
I've spent the past 6 weeks housesitting & travelling in the Bay of Plenty, Waikato & Taranaki region.
Currently in Bay of Islands until April 1st.


I offer a professional level of pet/housesitting, & am very well travelled with lots of experience in various locations with a variety of animals....rescues included.

Being a mature, fit active Australian woman who's owned houses with pool & garden, housesitting has filled a retirement option for me, which I'm suited to.

I housesit alone (rural or urban)......although in one UK review my daughter's father joined me......not usual.
.
I'm calm, reliable, healthy & active with the energy & enthusiasm of youth, but the experience that comes with age.
I offer a caring, practical, feminine touch with the natural ability to multi task & treat pets with the affection I'd give my own.
I enjoy clean, tidy living conditions.
.Totally used to maintaining a house & garden.

I'm experienced in caring for a huge variety of dogs & cats....many rescue... also hens, birds ,tortoises, turtles, fish & hedgehogs in a range of living conditions world wide.
I now spend more time with animals than people, & am soft voiced with a calm nature

This was our first house/pet sitting with a 'stranger' and we totally lucked in with Vicki! Honestly can't recommend her highly enough. We returned home to a pristinely clean and tidy house, and two very happy well looked after doggies. Vicki's communication in the lead-up and during the sit was excellent and we left for our holiday completely content that our home and dogs were in good hands. Our dogs can be challenging on walks but Vicki took it in her stride and ensured they were ... MORE

Vicki is a lovely lady and an awesome house sitter! My dog especially loved her and was very happy and content when I got home. The house looked lovely on my return. She's clearly a very experienced house sitter. I would have Vicki back in a heartbeat.
 
LESLIE (Matamata North Island, Feb 2020 - 4 days)
I fully appreciated the care Vicki offered whilst I was away. Her messages and photos of my cats were lovely to receive. I arrived home to everything been taken good care of and cats looked well and happy. I have no hesitation to recommend Vicki for house and animal sitting.
 
SANDRA (Opotiki North Island, Jan 2020 - 16 days)
Vicki was the best housesitter we have ever had. She is so nice to deal with and looked after our 2 dogs probably better than I do. She helped with one of my dogs greedy feeding issues beautifully. The house was immaculate when I got home and her communication was very good. Our flight was cancelled at the start of our holiday so we had to stay in our home 1 extra night and Vicki was very accommodating over that too. Definite 5 stars. Thanks so much Vicki for your help
 
JULIE (Hawthorn VIC, Dec 2019 - 3 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Vicki cared for our much loved Groodle 'Louie', house and gardens recently. We had not used a house sitter before, however felt instant ease upon meeting Vicki, Louie sat in between Vicki's legs on his first meet and greet, so this was a sign that Vicki was the perfect house sitter. Not to mention Vickis long list of available references, all referring to Vicki's professionalism, house care and happy pets. Vicki kept in touch while we were away with pictures of Louie, this was lovely to ... MORE
 
KYLIE (Palmyra WA, Dec 2019 - 8 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Vicki is a friendly and helpful person. She was an excellent house sitter who took great care of our little fur babies. Vicki watered our garden exactly as requested, sent us photos of the our happy dogs and left the house neat and spotless. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a house sitter.
 
DAVID (Beaconsfield WA, Nov 2019 - One week) From Aussie House Sitters
Vicki housesat for us in November 2019. Our dog Remi was very happy with her foster mum as Vicki took her for frequent much loved walks to the beach. Vicki works well with animals and we returned to a very contented dog. Vicki took excellent care of our home and gardens. Athough we had left instuctions for watering, Perth experienced extremely temperatures which made the original watering schedule obsolete. Vicki watered consistently and kept everything alive and flourishing. As I love my ... MORE
 
JUDY (Spearwood WA, Nov 2019 - 17 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Vicki was an exceptional house and cat sitter and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. Our house was left in a better state than we left it, and our elderly cat Mojo was relaxed and in great health. Vicki treated the job with utmost professionalism and I felt completely comfortable and confident leaving my home and cat in her care. Thank you Vicki!
 
JAYNE (East Fremantle WA, Sep 2019 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Vicki & her partner Mario did a fantastic job for us. Their friendly and totally professional approach during our overnight together before we set off on holiday allowed us to leave the house and our nervous/elderly cat Tuppence with complete confidence. (Tuppence, after giving them the expected cold shoulder treatment, gradually came round to accepting them and clearly appreciated their attentions.) Throughout our holiday, Vicki kept in contact and sent us regular helpful updates, ... MORE

GERRI (My Lawley WA, Mar 2019 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating My wife and I were very pleased with Vicki's house, cat and dog sitting. Her communication throughout was speedy, thorough and professional either by email, Skype or WhatsApp. She arrived on the Sunday evening, as we flew very early on Monday morning, to get up to speed with the house and animals. Our Cat is very easy but our Cocker seemed to be very needy in the evenings, but Vicki was patient with him. We were regularly updated while away with text and photos and Vicki managed all ... MORE
FIONA (Lymm , Sep 2018) From House Sitters UK
No rating Vicki was fabulous and professional from start to finish. She was reliable, responsive and responsible, and understood the care of my cat was my upmost priority. My cat was happy and relaxed upon my return and Vicki provided me with several updates and photos while I was away. The house was immaculate - in fact cleaner and tidier than I left it. Vicki was friendly and easy to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Vicki and would happily have her back to house sit.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
