Jane is an absolute star. We were going away for a month. Our priority was our animals. We have two dogs and many other and varied animals. One of our dogs is quite shy around new people so we were looking for just the right person. Jane is that person, previous reviews said, "our dogs were sad when she left" and ours were no exception. They adored her and were so well looked after, as were the rest of the menagerie. Our home was well looked after as well. We cannot recommend Jane highly ... MORE

Jane is a top house sitter. Our house was spotless, our dog happy and our garden well watered. Jane communicated well and we wouldn't hesitate to ask her to come back. Thanks Jane, you are a STAR!
JOHN (Stanmore Bay North Island, Jan 2020 - 3 weeks)
Jane looked after our dog and guinea pigs for a week. She was professional in her approach, easy to communicate with and totally reliable. Our dog was relaxed, happy and clearly well looked after during our absence. We returned to a tidy, clean house. Jane also dealt brilliantly with a small household crisis when a faulty kitchen hob caught fire! We would highly recommend her.
DAVID (Parua Bay North Island, Oct 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
Very happy with our house sitter Jane who managed to tame our sensitive little Labrador by the time we got back. It was clear our Elly had a wonderful time too with Jane with hours of walking each day. House was immaculate when we arrived home and we really appreciated the lift home from the airport. Thanks Jane!
RACHEL (Motueka Valley South Island, Oct 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
Jane was fabulous. She took great care of my elderly cat, and the house was spotless on my return. Great communication, I'd highly recommend Jane to look after animals, and if you like coming home to a pristine house and garden. Thank you Jane!
CLARE (Waihi , Mar 2018)
No rating Jane has been a fantastic house sitter for us. She spent lots of time with our dogs and took amazing care of all the pets. The house was left really clean and tidy. We would certainly love to have Jane back again in the future. A huge Thanks
KAREN (Tiniroto North Island, Jan 2018 - 1 week)
No rating We can not thank Jane enough for the amazing House sitting / Dog sitting she did for us! Jane is a wonderful, kind and caring person. Who not only took great care of our home and property but more importantly looked after our dogs and cat like they were her own. Our dogs were so happy and healthy and obviously extremely cared for when we got home it was wonderful. Jane really did take exceptional care of our pets and home , we felt very privileged to have had her in our home. She communicated ... MORE
PENE FOX (Ti Point , Jun 2017)
No rating We were indeed lucky to have Jane as our house sitter, and our beloved cats thought so to. Jane put us at ease at first meeting and engaged with our cats from the outset. She won them over rapidly, took great care of them and our house, and left it immaculately clean and tidy for when we came home. We were all a little bit sad to see her go! I would reccomend Jane without hesitation,and we hope to have her back!
KATY (Mangawhai North Island, May 2017 - 3 weeks)
No rating Jane was a very special house sitter. We feel so lucky to have found her. Our two elderly but energetic cats were well loved and we really appreciated the weekly updates on their activities. On our return the house was immaculately clean and everything in its place. We would unreservedly recommend Jane and certainly would use her again.
SUSAN (Wellsford/Mangawhai semi rural , Apr 2017)
No rating Jane is just AWESOME, you will be incredibly lucky if she is available to house sit for you. Jane house sat for us for a month, she gave so much TLC to our two dogs, I think they were very sad to see her go! Lots of walks, and definitely slimmer dogs than when we left, which they both needed! Our house was lovely and clean, better than how I left it, lawns mowed, just all perfect. Communication was great, quick to reply to emails to assure me everything was fine. Feel we were truly blessed ... MORE
DEB (One Tree Point North Island, Mar 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating Jane sat for me for 2 weeks recently and was great. The animals were well loved and cared for and the house was clean and tidy when I got home. Thanks!
NADINE (Lake Rotoehu North Island, Mar 2017 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating We had Jane house sit and care for our dog Billy while we went on a 5 week holiday and we couldn't imagine anyone doing a better job than she did. We came home to a wonderfully clean and tidy house and most importantly, a very happy and healthy dog. Good thing we never stayed away longer though as the bond between Jane and Billy was a hard one to break. She really has a great way with animals. Since her sit she has called in on a couple of occasions and taken Billy for a walk which was really ... MORE
JIM & DIANA (Awahou , Feb 2017 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating We highly recommend Jane as a house-and-pet-sitter. We contacted her at the last minute and she was able to step in because she'd just had a cancelation that morning. We didn't actually meet Jane as we left before she arrived and then she had gone on to her next house-sit a few hours before we got home. We came home to a beautifully clean home and even the washing was done! And our cat, rabbit, two guinea pigs, and two chickens had obviously been well looked after. It was so lovely walking in ...

TINA (Alfriston , Jan 2017)
No rating Jane was a lovely house sitter for our home and pets while we spent 5 weeks away. As soon as I met her I felt she was right and I always go with my gut feeling about people. She treasured our dogs, chickens and guinea pigs, including welcoming a total of 9 new guinea pig babies into the world. Jane also did the brave job of moving stock, did some weed eradication and left the house spotless for our return. We are really grateful to her and confident to recommend her to others and to ...

SARAH THOMSON (Rotorua , Dec 2016)
No rating Jane was a fantastic house sitter for us. The house was immaculate when we returned, the garden looking fab and our two cats were very happy while we were away and I suspect a little disappointed when we got home and Jane had left. They loved her and wanted to adopt her I'm sure of it!! I would highly recommend Jane to take care of your house and beloved fur babies. They would be in great hands! We would love to have her stay again sometime in the future. Thanks Jane! x
ELKE (Helensville North Island, Nov 2016 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Jane was magnificent. We and the furbies (5 in total) were at ease with Jane as soon as she walked in the door. We came home to happy dogs and cats. Tidy clean house was also great to see. I would highly recommend Jane to house sit for you. She is trustworthy, honourable and an a imal lover.
SONYA AND DARREN (Kohimarama North Island, Nov 2016 - 5 days)
No rating Jane was an excellent house-sitter. We came home to a beautifully tidy house and two happy cats who seemed sad to see her go!
DEIRDRE (Titirangi North Island, Oct 2016 - 4 days)
No rating Jane looked after our house, garden, and pets while we had a week in Sydney. She kept us informed while we were away, and we returned to a spotless house and happy pets. I recommend Jane to anyone looking for a friendly, tidy, and responsible house sitter.
KEN (Awhitu Peninsula North Island, Oct 2016 - 1 week)
No rating Jane did a fantastic job looking after our house, but especially deserves credit for her care of our many pets, incl. the chickens, 3 rabbits, 2 cats and the dog, whom unfortunately hurt his back two weeks before take-over, requiring special care, medication and a vet re-visit. Thank-you Jane for a wonderful return after 10 days away, to find all the animals relaxed, happy and the house cleaner than when we left!
SAMANTHA AND MIKE (Huia , Oct 2016)
No rating Jane was a fantastic house sitter. We had a house sitter arranged who pulled out 2 days before we left for holiday and Jane stepped in at the last minute. Our two cats and dog were very happy, our dog was walked everyday and looks really healthy. She will miss Janes company. The house was immaculate when we returned and our washing had been folded! We found Jane a genuinely nice person and would highly recommend her to anyone requiring a house sitter. Please feel free to email me ... MORE
