Caring Trustworthy Couple

52, Semi retired

53, Semi retired

Welcome to our profile and thank you for considering us.
We are a semi retired couple travelling New Zealand. Deb has owned a cleaning/ lawnmowing/gardening business and has owned many pets and has a great love of all animals. Pete is a professional photographer of 30years and a capable handyman who also has a great love of all animals. We love to help others so looking after your home and animals would be a joy to us and our number one priority during our stay. We are a very honest, trustworthy, tidy and clean couple who respects others homes and belongings. We are both non smokers. Pete and I are more than happy to meet with you prior to your sit, in person is always better than just a photo :-) Should you have any more questions for us please feel free to call or message us anytime.

WOW - is the the best word to describe the fabulousness of Deb and Pete. They are incredible, right from our first communication, to popping over to meet with us and all our creatures. They are both wonderfully warm and generous people who looked after our home and creature fantastically. They sent us updates (with lashings of humor) and were quick to contact us if there was an issue (our water pump gave up!). We came home to the most sparkling clean house and very happy animals. We would ... MORE

Where do i begin. If you van get Pete n Debs you will be winning. My house was spotlessly clean when i got back. The garden was tidy and my dog was a happy boy. As a beautiful touch they left desserts (home made) in the fridge. They also left a framed photo of Echo. I would ask Pete n Debs back any time. They are beyond excellent on the house sitting scale. Thank you.

To whom it may concern, we recently had Pete and Deb house sit for us and we have no hesitation in recommending them as reliable and respectful sitters. They looked after our pets/animals very well (including regular updates) and left our home spotless. It was a bonus to return home to a pre prepared dinner and dessert!! Great people. Gary and Nicki.

Deborah and Peter house sat for us in March 2020, while my husband and I travelled in South East Asia for three weeks. We can not speak more highly of them. While we were away they kept in contact with us and sent us beautiful photos of our two dogs, cats and birds. On our return, we came home to a beautifully clean and maintained house with very happy pets. It was a challenging time as we returned in early coronavirus times. Deborah and Peter had made dinner for us and sorted food for our ... MORE

Deb and Peter looked after our home & farm for 2 days in January & returned for a 2 week stay in February. Unfortunately they had to deal with a number of unforeseen hiccough ups which they managed superbly under difficult circumstances using their initiative to problem solve. They bottle fed a cria, cared for 2 mums who had unexpectedly birthed, fed out, kept the water clean & cool for 40 alpacas & cleaned the paddocks.. Plus cared for 3 Newfoundlands & 3 cats. One of our dogs is getting ... MORE

Deb and Pete have been exceptional house sitters for us. Right from initial contact their communication and enthusiasm was amazing for providing a house and pet sitting service to meet and go above and beyond my expectations. From the many pictures and communications our pet dog and cat have been very well loved and cared for (including attending to required veterinary treatment). I am so looking forward to our return home to a house that has received a long overdue spring-clean, an ... MORE
