Hi Everyone,

We are a year into our full time house sitting lifestyle and we are loving every minute of it. We are so happy that we made this decision and are loving house sitting and meeting people and their beautiful furry (and some not so furry) children.
We have come to find it's a huge passion for all of us to help people care for their animals and homes while they have a much deserved holiday.

We are a clean and extremely tidy couple, we don't drink or smoke. We will think of your house as our own and take care of it to the highest standards. We also have references too.
Scott loves to garden and takes pride in his work.

We absolutely love all kinds of animals, which we have owned over the years including cats, fish, birds, giant Flemish rabbits, also including two gorgeous dogs, one Rottweiler and one German Shepard cross, so we are used to large dogs.
We love to work and stay active so your lovely dogs will get lots of exercise., , we also use to foster for our local vet, which was very rewarding.

We are used to administering medicine to animals if need be and have also cared for many special needs animals to who have been rescued.

We consider House sitting as a privilege as we are trusted with your lovely home and beloved pets and you can be sure we won't take this for granted.

Both Scott and I work online so we are home most of the day, so you know your pawsome pets will have lots of company and cuddles and playtime.

We will keep you updated regularly on your pets and also lots of photos while you are away so that you have peace of mind while on your travels.

We look forward to hearing from you.

You can see our past sits on Instagram, please contact us for the link.

Scott and Selina far exceeded our expectations, Our 3 dogs, 2 cats and 3 chickens were well taken care of, The house was left immaculate, and they communicated with us while we were away which gave us great peace of mind. When we go away again in the future we hope to be able to book Scott and Selina. Would highly recommend these two.

This was our first time getting a house sitter so I was a bit nervous about leaving my furbabies with strangers but from the point of first contact I felt scott and selina were right for the position. Scott stayed in contact leading up to the sit and during their time at our home. Our furbabies were well looked after. So pleased we have rebooked them for when we are away next and definitely don't think of them as strangers now. Thank you for putting our minds at ease.

Scott & Selina are a great couple. Came home to a very tidy, sparkling house.. Dogs had learnt a few more manners. Would fully recommend them and will be using them again. Thanks guys and happy house sitting. Jock
JOCK (Whakatane North Island, May 2020 - 5 days)
Scott and Selina are amazing people, they feel more like friends to us this second time around! They love our pets as if they were their own and respect our home, always keeping it spotless for us. We were stuck overseas due to Covid 19 and they made sure our home was fully stocked with food for our arrival into our isolation period! They even left all the food needed for our allergy sensitive daughter! They made sure we were safe and offered us so much help and support on our journey home! I ... MORE

It is a real pleasure to provide a review for Scott and Selina. My cats ( and geese ) were extremely well cared for and my house was immaculate ! Scott transformed an untidy garden ,and l am thrilled with the big effort he made ( totally unexpected l might add ). It was wonderful to go away knowing my place was left in such capable and caring hands. I highly recommend them both and sincerely hope they will be available when l go on holiday again.
SHIRLEY (Waikanae North Island, Feb 2020 - 1 week 6 days)
Scott and Selina looked after our home and pets for just over a week. From the outset the communication was fantastic, We were able to meet up with them prior to the sit and they met with us at 6am on the morning of our departure to ensure a smooth transition for our dog. He was immediately stoked to be taken out for a walk! We were updated with pictures of what the pets were up to during our week away, including that our normally solo sleeping cat was happily curling up with them each night ... MORE

Cannot recommend Scott and Selina highly enough and would not hesitate to use them again. Fantastic communication before, during and after. Dog was very happy and house and garden were immaculate on our return, Thanks so much.
LAURA (Woodridge North Island, Jan 2020 - 1 week)
Came home to a clean and tidy house and a happy dog. Scott and Selina are very friendly people.
LOUISE (Rotorua North Island, Dec 2019 - 4 weeks)
Scott and Selina are amazing sitters. Our very spoilt labradoodle was so well taken care off and the house and garden were immaculate.We cannot rate them high enough .
HELEN (Warkworth North Island, Oct 2019 - 5 weeks)
Scott and Selina were fantastic. We were able to enjoy our holiday knowing our dog was in great company. Communication leading up to the house sit was fantastic and we really appreciated the updates while we were away that Islay was doing great. On our return the house was immaculate and the dog happy - and we really appreciated the treats that were left. I would recommend this family without hesitation and would happily welcome them back to house sit for us again.
KAREN (Waitakere North Island, Sep 2019 - 2 weeks)
What fantastic house-sitters Scott, Selina and Briarna are! From our first meeting we felt comfortable with them and confident that our home and our precious pets would be in good hands, and they didn't let us down. As our initial meeting had occurred several months before our holiday, they made a point of keeping in touch periodically and getting together with us the day before we were due to leave, to spend time with us and to take our dogs out for a walk so that they (the dogs!) ...

BARBARA (Tauranga North Island, Sep 2019 - 3 weeks)
What wonderful house sitters Selina and Scott were. They looked after the boys ( two dogs and a cat ) so well, in fact I am sure the boys are missing them. We came home to a scrupulously clean house windows, floors, frig, and everything else spotless. Even the dogs beds had been washed. Scott tended to the gardens and lawns. In fact there was nothing out of place. ( actually puts us to shame ) They even left gifts for us and the boys. John and I couldn't recommend them more highly. I am ... MORE

Contacting and meeting with Scott and Selina was such a breeze, coming to look after our home and animals was no mean feat, with 4 adult dogs and 4 9 week old puppies, they both took on the challenge. You will not get a better couple to put you at ease, take care of your animals and your home. I can not thank Scott and Selina enough for the great job you did albeit a short stay. I have absolutely no issues recommending or having you both back again. Thank you so very much.
SEAN (Pakuranga North Island, Jun 2019 - 2 days)
We recently had the pleasure of meeting Scott and Selina. They watched over our lifestyle block and tended farm animals and pets. I would like to commend them on their excellent communications throughout and the care and kindness shown to our pets, stock and home. So nice to come to home to a spotless, warm house and happy animals. Thankyou both so much. We highly recommend Scott and Selina and already trying to secure them for our next break. Thanks so much.
MARIA (Eketahuna North Island, Jun 2019 - 10 days)
Scott and Selina did a great job of caring for our home and animals. We felt we had left everything in safe hands and this proved to be so right. We certainly recommend them as sitters.
MARGARET (Waimana , May 2019 - 3 weeks)
Scott and Selina were fantastic to deal with and even more amazing as house sitters. They made us feel relaxed and we could see they were trustworthy and reliable from the start which put our minds at ease. They worked in with us to ensure they could be here to meet us and the animals before we left for overseas and made sure they were here late the evening we arrived back to hand over again and update us. Our cat was sick prior to their arrival and ended up requiring a further vet visit and ... MORE
ANITA & DAVE (Feilding North Island, Apr 2019 - 1 week)
Scott and Selina were amazing loving carers for our pets and home. We didn't feel anxious or worried about anything the whole time we were away. They updated me almost everyday on everything they were up to and our pets looked so loved and happy! We came home to a Welcome back pack, super happy dogs, cat and fish. The gardens were spotless and weeded which was such a nice treat as we hadn't got around to that since moving in. The lawns were perfect, everything was just amazing. I couldn't of ... MORE

These guys are great.... :) My house was tidier when I came home than when I left.... My pooches were obviously as happy as sand boys.... Would love to have them look after my lunatics any time. :)
SUE (Awapuni North Island, Jan 2019 - 2 weeks)
We highly recommend Scott and Selina as excellent house sitters and pet carers. We found them to have comprehensive communication before and during the stay which ensured that we felt safe leaving our treasures with them. When we came home our home was sparkling clean and our dogs content. We believe that they are trustworthy and of good character. We hope that they can come back and sit for us again!
