32, Montessori teacher

Hi all, I am travelling and working around new Zealand with a working visa. I love all animals and happy out working on a farm doing lots of jobs or just having to feed and give love to a cat or dog. I am easy going and sensible. My background is in childcare, so I am well used to taking instructions and caring for other peoples babies;)

I house sat permanently from September to March in wellington so have heaps of references and experience house sitting now too.

Looking forward to hearing from you:)

Emma was a fantastic Housesitter. She looked after our 3 (sometimes naughty) cats amazingly and even went above and beyond to rescue them from their own stupidity. She was a fantastic communicator throughout and left the house immaculate. Would definitely recommend her to anyone and would 100% ask her to sit for us again.

Emma had 2 very young kittens to house sit for two weeks which was a big ask of anyone. They had just started going outside and I think it was quite daunting wondering if they would wander off. They didn't and Emma was great at keeping us up to date with their adventures, Excellent communication and the kittens seemed relaxed and happy when we got home.
JANICE (Northland North Island, Jan 2020 - 2 weeks)
Emma stayed at our place for approx 3 weeks and took wonderful care of our cat Loki. She communicated promptly the whole time, even dealing with our unusual and complex requests that came up (ie: taking Loki to the vet for vaccinations) and communicating with our landlord. She even stayed a few more days when we had to extend our vacation. Would highly recommend.

Emma came to the house sit last minute after a late cancellation. She was flexible, responsible and showed a real attitude of care which helped me relax and get in holiday mode after the initial worry. She was great with communication and any questions she had she contacted me promptly. She also sent me little pics and videos of them having fun, which was great to see. I could see that my pups were loving her company. I came back to a house that was tidy and well kept and my garden was watered ... MORE

Emma was a great house sitter. I came home to a clean and tidy house, clean sheets on the bed, washing hung out on the line and a happy cat. Emma also commicated regularly and sent me pictures of my cat so I could see she was fine. When there was an issue with the freeer at the start (my fault) she let me know right away and offered to dispose of the affected food for me. This was my first experience of using the site to find a house sitter and it went so well I am confident to do so again. ... MORE

Christine has a beautiful quaint home in a fantastic area. If you love eating out Petone is the best !!! Her cat Ursa was adorable, super affectionate but also very independent and easy to look after. Her home had a cute little garden that got lovely afternoon sun. 10mins walk from petone beach ... MORE
Emma did a great job of looking after my home and my two pets. She communicated regularly with me and built a lovely relationship with My cat and dog. I recommend her and wish her all the best. Olivia

Emma kept in good touch before and during the stay. She was amenable to some changes of dates when I had to alter my travel arrangements. The cats were well looked after, and when one of them got sick on the carpet Emma cleaned it up beautifully. When I got back the house was clean and all the laundry up-to-date. I'd happily have Emma to stay again, and recommend her for house-sitting situations.
PHIL (Whanganui North Island, Jul 2019 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Emma and her mum were wonderful housesitters to have. Communication was great and appreciated the regular contact whilst I was away. All animals very happy and content when I arrived home. Appreciate the care they gave and would highly recommend them for future housesits. Thank you xxx

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
