animal carer, dedicated couple

31, self-employed

36, Freelancer

Hi everyone!

We are Gilliane and Evgeny, a responsible and friendly French-Russian couple. We are New Zealand permanent residents, self-employed, reliable, really tidy and surely pet lovers.

Gilliane: "I learned how to care for pets while volunteering at an animal shelter in my spare time. Walking dogs, caring for abandoned cats, basically assessing pet behavior. As I couldn't foster animals at home, it was a way to cherish time with them!
Back in 2016, I spent a year Woofing, farm-sitting and traveling throughout New Zealand.
As in March 2022, I hold a Pet First Aid Certificate, so your pets are always in safe hands in case of an emergency."

Evgeny: "I have extensive experience in taking care of pets and farm animals. Gilliane and I love slow travel, and having furry friends always adds a homey feel to the place we stay; besides, Gilliane says that I'm a cat magnet!"

Traveling Aotearoa extensively, we can always submit references from former hosts and landlords upon request. Vaccine passport is also available on request.

We look forward to connect with you and take care of your fur babies and home.

AAAAA++++++ Sitters - We can't say enough to recommend this couple. Gilliane and Evgeny were the most fantastic house sitters. They were caring, honest, friendly and super tidy. We have already recommended them to friends and family, via the Kiwi House Sitter website. Having never had a house sitter before that we didn't know we were a bit nervous, but were truly thrilled with the Kiwi House Sitter platform and these two fantastic sitters. We extended their house sit from 2 weeks to 3 weeks. ... MORE

Gilliane and Evgeny were lovely! They looked after the pets really well and were not thrown by last minute ear drops needed for the dog. I found them really relaxed, easy to chat to and couldn't have been more happy with them house sitting for us. Excellent Comms while we were away also.

No rating Gilliane and Evgeny were wonderful house sitters and cared for my home and cat like they were their own. I was impressed with their regular updates and photos of Oreo. They made every effort to meet oreo beforehand and on arrival home I could tell oreo was very well looked after and had been shown lots of affection. Gilliane and Evgeny will be my first choice to house sit again in future.

Gilliane and Evgeny are a lovely couple who arrived the night before (at our request) so they could meet the animals and look around the farm. Our dog was very well looked after and we got lots of photos of him during the week. The house was clean and tidy on our arrival home which was wonderful. Absolutely would recommend them. Thank you very much.

What a pleasure it was to come home to my house looking immaculate, and my Monty happily waiting for me! They took over from another housesitter who had to go to another booking, after I extended my holiday. Although we didn't meet in person, they were excellent to communicate with, and I would have no hesitation in having them back. Great job, guys!

Inviting strangers into your home is a scary thought but we really lucked out our first time with these two! I didnt worry or stress out while we were away and everything was perfect when we got home. They had some complicated instructions looking after our many pets and they nailed it.
SHARI (Elsthorpe North Island, Mar 2022 - 6 days)
Oh thank you Shari for trusting us! We are beyond grateful for this amazing experience.
Gilliane and Evgeny were fantastic house/cat sitters and we would be very happy to have them stay again. They were communicative and sent us updates about Jed on a regular basis, and left the place very clean and tidy. We would definitely recommend them to someone looking for a sitter to take care of a house or pets.
JANE (Naenae North Island, Feb 2022 - 6 days)
It was such a delight to be able to leave our animals and our home to such lovely couple. Thank you for looking after everything so well. We really appreciated the text messages and phones calls to be updated on how everything was going. Gilliane and Evgeny were house sitting during a storm and manage keep everything safe and secure despite three without electricity. We highly recommend them and look forward to having them at our home again
PAULINE (Raglan North Island, Feb 2022 - 6 days)
Gilliane and Evgeny were the perfect housesitters for our short trip away. They were responsive and on time when we left and provided us with updates everyday while we were away. We felt at ease leaving our animals with them and came home to happy pets and a clean house. Thank you again!
ANNA (Panmure North Island, Jan 2022 - 4 days)
Absolutely amazing housesitters. Gilliane and Evgeny are a super nice couple and left the house immaculate! We loved the updates and it sure looked like our cat was more than comfortable and getting a lot of attention from Gilliane and Evgeny. Wouldn't hesitate to have them stay again. Thanks guys!
ALESHEA (New Lynn North Island, Dec 2021 - 3 weeks 6 days)
Gilliane and Evgeny were absolutely wonderful house sitters who kept me updated and entertained with photos of my cat having a great time while I was away. Communication was always very easy and the house on my return was possibly cleaner than I left it! Very responsible house sitters who I would thoroughly recommend. ‍⬛
BRENDA (Patumahoe North Island, Jul 2021 - 1 month 1 week)
Absolutely wonderful housesitters! They took great care of two furbies and their quirky habits while we were away with ease. We got lots of pictures and updates too and the house was spotless when we returned. They even accommodated our travel plans by vacating the house for 1 day in-between when we came home while transitioning onto our next destination. I would have no concerns in recommending Gilliane & Evgeny as housesitters and would love for them to sit for us in the future!
MARTIN (Hobsonville Point North Island, Jul 2021 - 3 weeks)
Gilliane was a wonderful sitter. She kept me updated on how Woody was doing and left the house so lovely and tidy. Would recommend Gilliane to anyone looking for a lovely, responsible sitter.
