HI! We are a family living in Auckland, we have been house sitting around NZ for a while now every time we have the chance as
we all 4 LOVE animals!!
I, Maria, grew up in a farm back in Argentina so I love and have experience with treating all kind of animals. My husband Mel is a gardener so he is an outdoors lover.
Our children are Salvador (6) and Bernardita (4). They both are used to be around animals since they were little, but they specially love cats & dogs. They can spend 24/7 giving them cuddles or just running around the garden with them. They are polite and respectful children.

We all 4 are a clean and responsible family. We can provide references of course.
We also have a house back in Argentina which we rent so we know how to take care of other people's houses as ours, we really do!
We always try to give back the houses better that how we received them as a thankful gesture for your trust.

Of course we are more than happy to do an online/in person interview to meet with you and your pets whenever suits.

We hope you can consider us, we are looking forward to it!
Thanks for your time and have a beautiful day =)

Fantastic family. Really went the extra mile with looking after our animals and home. Made me feel really happy to go away and know that the animals were not only being looked after but given lots of love and care too. The dogs had so much fun! Would highly recommend them. Thank you Maria!

Thank you so much Kat for such beautiful review �
Wow, what can I say? Maria and Mel and their 2 little ones were absolutely amazing staying at our home and pet sitting/house sitting/keeping our gardens watered and the house immaculate....AND....coming home to a delicious banana bread and whole meal loaf that they'd baked for us! The communication and photos of the kids playing with our dog was exceptional. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Maria and Mel, and have every intention of keeping in touch with them, they're welcome in our home anytime!

Maria and Mel were awesome housesitters! Great communication, including updates on how our pets were going, and left our house beautifully clean and tidy. Would not hesitate to ask them to look after our pets and house again.

This family was so communicative they put us at ease for our first ever pet sitting experience. They sent us updates and we could tell that our pets had a lovely time while we were away. The house was tidy and clean when we got home. We would recommend this family to anyone else.

Green garden!

Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
