Artistic Couple who love nature and travel

Composer and Orchestra Director

Stylist for TV/Film

We are a married couple who have travelled a lot and minded many homes, both for friends and via Kiwihousesitters, which we joined this year.
We love nature, animals and enjoy gardening. So we can take care of your home very well.
We both work in the Arts so we have freedom to work remotely most of the time, making house-sitting ideal for us. Dave is a composer and orchestra director and Celia works in wardrobe for TV/Film..
We are interested in exploring all around New Zealand, so we are open to offers from any locations.
We recently completed sits in Tauranga, Ohinewai and Waitomo. We got great reviews for those which you can see on our profile and we can provide references from friends who we have house-sat for in Northlands.
We are currently in the South Island with sits confirmed now up until early July, We welcome offers both North and South Island from mid July.
View our photos to see us with some of the lovely animals we have minded this year in New Zealand.

Dave and Celia were wonderful house/pet sitters. We came home to a tidy and clean house and well cared for and happy animals. The photos we were sent during our time away showed that it didn't take the animals long to feel comfortable with them. And even changing the return date was accepted without problems. We are happy to recommend Dave and Celia for your house sit.

Dave and Celia did a great job of looking after our two dogs and house. Communication was easy from the start with daily updates during the sit. Our dogs were kept happy with walks and cuddles on the sofa. We are happy to recommend them as they were reliable, trustworthy and we returned to a nice clean house. Thank you!

Dave and Celia were fantastic housesitters and I'd be happy to recommend them to others. They looked after our pets and homes very well, and left the place spotless. Thanks guys!

What a great couple Dave and Celia are! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting them and it was great to go away knowing our dog, Maisie, was in good hands. They were happy to meet up beforehand in plenty of time for Maisie to get used to them and she looked so relaxed and happy when we got back. The house was also left tidy. Thoroughly recommend and would be happy to have them look after Maisie again

Dave and Celia were the perfect companions for our two high energy border collies whilst we were away. We had two very happy dogs when we arrived home. Thanks so much Dave and Celia for making our holiday possible.

Celia and Dave are a very pleasant couple, instantly connecting with the pets. Upon my return the house was very clean and tidy. (Sorry about the delay in posting this)

Our lovely Irish angels Dave and Celia... What can we say but thank you, thank you! We originally had sitters arranged months ahead but for whatever reason they cancelled. We readvertised but had little response then these 2 contacted us. They are an outstanding husband and wife team genuine and calm. The energy they exude is gentle yet confident. Our main reason for getting a sitter was to take care of our garden and more importantly our dog Beau. He's not your average slipper dog and can be ... MORE
