Anne & Mike intend to make sure that your time away from your home and pets is worry free. We are a fit and active, non smoking, married couple who enjoy walking, biking and swimming.
We treat all our home owners properties with the utmost respect and always ensure that we leave everything clean and tidy and the pets loved and tended as per your instructions.
As we are retired, your property and pets will have someone around most of the time to ensure all is well.
Every situation is different and we try to arrange a personal meet & greet before hand if we are in your area, but there is always video calling if not.
We have experience in various breeds of dogs, cats, chickens, fish, birds, guinea pigs. Maintaining yards and gardens are also a specialty.
We especially enjoy the longer sits so we have time to really establish a routine with the pets and a chance to look around your part of the country. We have also done short stays tho', so don't hesitate to ask!
We are both fully vaxed.
Looking forward to hearing from you all.
Anne & Mike.

Anne & Mike took great care of our home, our treasured family dog was so happy and relaxed when we came home. Anne even baked a pie on the day we returned. They dealt with the challenge of cyclone Dovi and a long power cut, taking it all in their stride. I would highly recommend them both as housesitters..

Anne and Michael are a wonderful couple who were very conscientious in their care of our pets, livestock and property. They fitted in well with our community attending the local weekly dog walks. The house was immaculate on our return. In addition, our anxious daughter was treated with daily photos of her cat. We very much appreciated their warmth, care and communication and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone lucky enough to secure a booking with them.

Anne and Mike were amazing Housesitters. Honestly couldn't ask for better. Our friends are even asking if they can pay them to stay at their houses when they go away! We went away for 1 week and right before we left our cat was in a car accident and broke his leg. Anne and Mike took amazing care of him administering medication and keeping his wounds clean. They also clearly spoiled our labradoodle with love and walks because he's decidedly sad they are gone and he's left with us! :) Our ... MORE

Wow! As first time users of the house sitting service we didn't know what to expect but we struck gold with Anne and Mike. Really lovely people with a passion for caring for our home, garden and our greyhound Coco while we were away. They went above and beyond with a garden makeover and the house was immaculate when they left. Hoping they can come back every time!

Anne and Mike were the best housesitters we've ever had. Great communication, our pets were incredibly happy, the house was immaculate, and going beyond in the garden - including planting the impatiens for us - was just so appreciated. I hope we're lucky enough that our calendars align in the future, as we'd love to have you stay again. Thank you so much

Anne-Marie and Michael were such a lovely couple! We returned to an absolutely spotless house - like they hadn't even been there. I couldn't believe the sheets and towels had been washed :) Amazing. Thank you so much for looking after Pippa and the house for us. I highly recommend them for anyone else looking for a house/pet sitter.

Thank you Anne and Mike it was really great to come to a house just as we had left it. The cats were extremely well cared for and are getting used to us being back at work. The pool was immaculate. This was our first experience using kiwihousesitters and we can highly recommend Anne and Mike.

Safe house!

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