Claire & Darren

53, early childhood educator

53, Supervisor

We are a versatile and competent couple full of life experiences and reliability. We had been managing sheep and beef farms for many years until settling into city life in Hamilton. So have lots of animal handling skills. Darren ran and trained a large team of working dogs to dog trial level. We owned our own home in Hamilton for 17 years but decided to sell and open ourselves up to a freer lifestyle which involves lots of travel. We are currently back in Hamilton working so would be looking to house sit in this area for now. We walk or run every day so are personally fit. Claire also enjoys gardening so would be happy to do this when required.

No rating Claire and Darren were exceptional Housesitter's, caring for our home, large lawns and cat very well.. They left our home beautifully clean and tidy. I'd highly recommend them and hope to use them again.

We cannot recommend Claire and Darren highly enough. They housesat for us in Te Awamutu for 3 months. They were well aware that our 16year old labrador Lucy may not see the 3 month period through. Sadly this was the case and cant fault their management of this difficult situation. Our greatest reassurance was that we knew Lucy would have received all the loving care she needed. Thank you to you both. We have arrived back to a spotless house and well cared for lawns and gardens. It is clear ... MORE

Claire and Darren were amazing. The house was immaculate when we returned and the dogs were well looked after - so well, they did not seem to miss us! Would recommend to anyone and would use for future house sits.

No rating Claire & Darren were professional from the first contact. Nothing was too much trouble, they left our home sparkling clean and tidy, the animals where well cared for and happy when we got back. I would not hesitate to ask them to sit for us again and highly recommend them to any body.
