Caring as our own

We are a reliable, non-smoking active semi retired couple who own a home in Wellington which other people are living in so we can campervan around New Zealand. We are members of the NZ Motor Caravan Assn and have been campervanning, walking, cycling and housesitting within north and south islands for over a year. As experienced home and rental property owners (since 1990), gardeners, all round handy people, animal lovers and experienced carers, especially of dog, cat, chicken, calf and goat, we would welcome the opportunity to look after your pets, stock, home and garden while you are away as if it were our own.

Cherllisha and her husband Danilo are the most fantastic housesitters. Our cats, ducks and chooks received more attention from them than from us. The cats and birds were really well looked after and the house very clean and tidy. Cherllisha was excellent with communication and always replied promptly to our emails and let us know anything going on. Her husband Danilo even chopped some firewood so that we would still have plenty for the rest of the winter. Cherllisha also looked after our plants ... MORE

Appreciate comments and truly appreciate the way Cherllisha & Danilo took care of things while I was away for 3 weeks. I came back to happy, healthy animals as well as a "tidy as I left it" clean and well aired home. Communication was great including handy notes on my return confirming the things that had been done while away. So nice to come back and relax after tiring trip with all being in order. Thanks again (hope suits to use them again if travel) & thoroughly recommend them. Glad they ... MORE

We felt very happy to go away and having happy updates about what our dog Mudd was getting up to from Cherllisha and Danilo . He was well looked after and spoilt. Thanks again and would recommend this couple.

We really enjoyed Cherllisha and Danilo looking after our house and animals. Prior to us leaving they came over to get to know the animals. They took care of 2 dogs, a bird, fish tank and turtle. The dogs can be a little full on at times but they managed very well. We would be very happy to recommended them and even have Cherllisha and Danilo back. Thank you very much for taking such good care of our place and animals.

Cherllisha looked after my house and cat while I was away for a week. She watered my garden and house plants and looked after my cat, who seemed happy when I got home. The house was neat and tidy when I got home. Cherllisha kept in contact while I was away and I recommend her for any housesitting in the future.

Cherllisha & Danilo did a fantastic job of looking after our animals, vegetable garden and home. They went over and above to make sure our dog was exercised, kept an eye on all of our farm animals and watered our veges and plants as we requested. Their communication was great and we instantly felt at ease when we met them and could enjoy our family holiday without worrying. They are a lovely couple who will look after your animals and home like it is their own. Thanks so much :)

Cherlisha and Danilo looked after my home and animals particularly well. I think they enjoyed some of the eggs from the chickens even though they had a very rainy Christmas day. It was a pleasure having them to stay in my home. They left is very tidy and they were great with the animals.
LYNNE (Picton South Island, Dec 2018 - 4 days)
We went overseas for 10 days and were very happy to come back to our family home and find it clean, tidy and well looked after. Our dog and cat had also been very well cared for. Communication was excellent from the start and we even received updates while we were away. We felt very confident leaving our home and pets in the hands of Cherllisha and Danilo and would do it again in a heartbeat! Five start housesitter, we would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

We could not have asked for better minders for our pets and our precious house than Cherllisha and Danilo. Our pets were so happy while were away as was demonstrated by the many pictures and from comments from our neighbours. It is a great leap of faith to trust your treasured possessions and much loved pets to others, but we hit the goldmine with Cherllisha and Danilo who looked after all of this like it was their own. A great experience all around. Thanks guys!

Thanks Cherllisha and Danilo, you did a great job. It was such a pleasure to come home to a lovely tidy house and garden, and to find all the animals happy and well cared for. So glad to hear you enjoyed it. Wishing you best of luck with the rest of your travels. Anyone reading this should rest assured that these two would be excellent housesitters for you. You could relax knowing that all will be well in your absence. Thanks and cheers, Joe and Meg

Cherllisha and Danilo were wonderful housesitters. They looked after our place exceptionally good. They also looked after our Della dog and Beau the cat and of course our 5 chickens. Della loved having them look after her and spoil her. I highly recommend them to house sit. Thank you so very much Cherllisha and Danilo.
