Barry and Rae

65, Civil Engineer

63, Ex Dental Nurse

Rae and I (Barry) have finally retired and will be living in our motor home until our house is built in Taupo. Barry grew up on a farm and became a Civil Engineer working for Councils in a senior roles looking after water supplies and wastewater schemes. Rae has been involved in the dental industry. We have two adult sons and had cats and dogs as pets most of our lives. We have had some special dogs including our last dog Molly who was a SPCA approved special needs reading dog, who Rae took to schools for the new entrant children to read to. Until now we have always had our own home, so house sitting will be a new adventure for us.

Currently we are booked until early January 2020

We would highly recommend Barry and Rae. We were away for 2.5 weeks and came back to the cleanest our home has ever been. Not only did they vacuum and scrub everything clean but they even cleaned our oven! They also mowed our lawns, did edging in the garden, along the lawns and driveway and watered all of our indoor and outdoor plants. They took exceptional care of our dogs, cats and chickens. We would definitely have them come back and would recommend to anyone. Thank you so much!
