Kia ora!

Mins is 27, she is originally from Taiwan and has lived in Malaysia & Japan.
Allen is 29, he was born and raised in New Zealand.

We are a very respectful, animal-loving couple living in the Canterbury region. We are very fortunate to have flexibility, as currently we have a base in Allen's family home in North Canterbury where we can come and go as we please.

Mins has been house sitting full-time through this website for nearly two years and now Allen is loving it too!

We are friendly, compassionate, and responsible. Allen works full-time in the city and Mins mostly works from home, so she will be around to keep your property well looked after and your furry friends company.

We have plenty of experience with animals. We both had our own childhood pets and have completed several house sits looking after a range of animals throughtout New Zealand. We find housesitting to be a great opportunity for meeting wonderful people and seeing new places.

If you'd like to consider us for your next house sit, please feel free to contact us, I'd be glad to answer any questions that you may have.

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,
Mins & Allen

We've been lucky to have Mins and Allen look after our place for a bit over three weeks. They are a fabulous pair of competent house sitters and are delightful to deal with all the way through. They were really communicative, clearly adored our pets (One gorgeous cat, a young energetic dog, 6 gold fish and 5 chooks) and left the place spotless and organised for when we returned home. They were so professional and friendly, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Thank you Allen and Mins for taking such good care of Julie and our home. Lovely young couple. Easy to deal with and excellent communication. Everything was left tidy and clean. We would certainly have them house sit again.

Happy pets and tidy house. Mins and her partner were great sitters and kept in touch each day with pics of animals and general goings on. I would highly recommended her. Thanks again Mins.
CLAIRE (Heathcote Valley South Island, Jan 2020 - 10 days)
Mins and Allen were great sitters for our dog bohdi. We got lots of photos and updates which was nice to receive. House was tidy and bed was all made up which we really appreciated.
SARAH (Luggate South Island, Dec 2019 - 1 week 2 days)
Mins & Allen absolutely were fabulous house sitters. We returned to a clean & tidy house and a very happy dog! Excellent communication since day one. We would highly recommend this couple.
ROSIE (Clarkville South Island, Nov 2019)
Mins and Allen were amazing sitters. They followed instruction guide but also went way beyond expectation. They left my home sparkling clean and tidy. Mins and Allen were very clear around communication and showed they were reliable, trustworthy and prepared to show initiative. We have no hesitation in recommending this couple.

It was such a pleasure having Mins to house sit and look after my cat. She sent me regular updates & pictures which was lovely. Came home to a tidy, clean house & the sheets were washed etc. Hope I can have her back another time :-)
SUZIE (Christchurch South Island, Sep 2019 - 7 days)
Mins looked after our cat, dog and gold fish for a week. When we came back, our home was immaculate, and our pets are clearly well looked after. As well, she sent photos with a brief update so we would know all was well. I'd happily recommend Mins to anyone who needed a house sitter.
ADELINE (Burnham , Mar 2019)
Mins was an absolutely fantastic cats and house sitter. It was so nice to go away knowing that our cats were in her care. Communication before and after house sitting was great which can be very important when you are leaving your home and pets in the care of someone else. She took wonderful care of our little vegetable garden too and changed the bed sheets before she left. We cannot recommend her enough for looking after your house or pets.
KAREN (Lincoln University South Island, Feb 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
Mins was an absolute pleasure to deal with right from the initial contact. She was very friendly and had great communication. The house was left in excellent condition and most importantly the dog and cat were happy. I hope to use Mins again and can highly recommend her. Thank you!
MATT (Kaiapoi , Feb 2019)
Mins is a very nice person, really take care of my little dogs, keep home clean and tidy. We are very happy during her stay. I will highly recommend her.
EVELYN (Onehunga , Dec 2018)
Mins housesat for us for a week. From the moment we met her we knew that she was the perfect housesitter. She takes the role of housesitting very seriously and is mindful that she is in someone elses' home. Our cat was cared for with the utmost of care by Mins. Our home was left immaculately clean, rubbish removed, and linen washed. We have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Mins. We would ask her to housesit for us again in a heartbeat.
STUART AND CINDY (Waitoa North Island, Nov 2018 - 6 days)
Excellent communication, very friendly and such a nice person. Would not think twice about using Mins again to house/dog sit. Thank you.
DEANE (St Albans South Island, Nov 2018 - 3 days)
Mins took wonderful care of Bert, our cat, and Pearl, our goldfish. Our home was clean and tidy when we arrived and she always kept in communication with us during our time away. We had a little misunderstanding regarding the food in the house, but this was sorted out successfully. Even with her young age, Mins shows responsibility and caring beyond her years.
CHRIS (Temuka South Island, Sep 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
Mins has done an exceptional job looking after our furbabies whilst we were away in England for a month. We have come home to a beautifully kept house and to perfectly content animals. My Irish Setter Poppy and my 2 cats obviously adore her and I'm sure they'll miss her terribly when she continues her travels. Enjoy your travels in NZ Mins. Please take care and keep in touch. I thoroughly recommend Mins for any future house sitting opportunity. She cares a great deal about the welfare ... MORE
SUSAN & KEITH (Tauranga North Island, Aug 2018 - 4 weeks)
Mins was an absolutely wonderful housesitter - taking care of a range of animals from cats to cows. I came home to a lovely clean house (she had even washed her own sheets) and everyone alive and obviously well fed. Photos and email updates while I was away were fantastic. Would highly recommend Min.
