Gregor & Ricki

51, Process Analyst

48, Policy Advisor

Greetings. We are Gregor and Ricki and we welcome the opportunity to house sit for you.

We're originally from Germany and have called New Zealand home for 12 years now.

We're in our mid/late 40s. Gregor's background is in electronics engineering, working from home and Ricki works as a Policy Advisor. We've recently made house sitting our new lifestyle so that Gregor can work towards self employment without going broke.

We are non-smokers, non-drinkers, no drug users, low key, respectful and reliable.

Gregor grew up with family pets (Golden retriever, Burmese cat) and Ricki had rabbits and enjoyed farm stay holidays as a kid.

We prefer a house sit in the wider Wellington region (Wellington, Kapiti Coast up to Waikanae, Hutt Valley, Featherston). To introduce ourselves and get to know you and your pets, we're happy to come to your place for a quick visit.

We take pride in making sure our house sit homes are left clean, tidy and well presented with pets happy and well cared for.

If you choose us as your house sitters you can expect mature people that respect your home. Someone that lives a low key lifestyle. Someone that values your privacy and looks after your pets and house as if our own.

To find out more about us please contact us.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

Ricki & Gregor

Gregor and Uli are fantastic! We have used them multiple times now and couldn't recommend them enough. We always feel safe leaving the house and the animals in their care. The care they take of the house is amazing, it is immaculate when we return home. And the animals are really well cared for. Rosie, the dog, absolutely loves it when Gregor and Uli come to stay she gets so much love and attention and plenty of walks. 5 star house sitters!!!
BECKY (Featherston North Island, Dec 2017 - 2 weeks 2 days)
Gregor and Ricki were great communicators and did a wonderful job of looking after our house and cat. The house was clean and tidy on our return and our cat happy and healthy. Would definitely use Gregor and Ricki again.
RACHAEL (Northland/Kelburn , Jul 2020 - 5 days)
Professional quality housesitters, my wife said the house was spotless, pets super relaxed and the 'vibe' of our house was very respected - thank you. Would use this couple again in a flash, and will keep in touch when we go away again if Gregor and Ricki are available. Many thanks indeed.
STEVEN (Kapiti North Island, May 2020 - 3 days)
Gregor and Ricki looked after our young Golden Retriever and cat for 3 weeks in January 2020. They are both very conscientious and followed all instructions we gave them. They were great communicators and sent photos and up-dates about our pets, and taught our puppy several commands. They watered our many plants, indoors and out, and we came home to a spotless house. I highly recommend them and would have them back any time.
SOPHIA (Raumati South North Island, Jan 2020 - 3 weeks)
Ricki and Gregor were terrific Housesitters. They did a great job both in looking after my much loved golden retriever and in taking care of my home. We kept in touch via email and communication was prompt if a fast reply was needed. I would recommend this couple to anyone needing responsible, reliable and caring sitters. They were perfect for the task.
ANNETTE (Karori North Island, Aug 2019 - 1 month 1 week)
Gregor and Ricki house sat for us for 7 weeks and we have been really happy with their service. They looked after our chickens, plants, fish and cats, the latter who, being old, needed quite a lot of attention. Communication was clear and regular and any issues were sorted out promptly. We returned home to a super clean house, and very healthy looking pets. Thank you, we definitely recommend them
CATE (Belmont North Island, Jul 2019 - 1 month 3 weeks)
From the first time we met Gregor and Ricki we were very happy to leave our animals and home in their care, having complete trust in them. We were not disappointed. Being winter on our lifestyle block, we required the cows to be fed with hay, and moving them around which was a new experience for them, but all done without any issues. They are both very professional in their communications and completing the tasks at hand. Totally recommend
IAN AND JOCE (Pauatahanui North Island, Jun 2019 - 5 weeks)
Gregor and Ricki undertook our house sit with true professionalism. Communication prior to and during the sit was excellent. The house was well looked after. The dogs loved Gregor and Ricki. They were in excellent condition. We had expected one of the dogs to have lost weight due to the stress of us not been there. This was not the case. The dogs were in amazing condition on our return. One of the dogs had an accident and this was delt with quickly and with due diligence. We ... MORE
SALLY-ANN (Stokes Valley North Island, May 2019 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Gregor and Ricky looked after our house and pets for 5 weeks. They visited us on one occasion before their stay and we found it easy to trusr them after an Initial conversation . Gregor and Ricky have put a lot of effort into helping our young dog to behave well - they even left us video files and written advice to help us carry on where they left of. The house was left welcoming and tidy with our dog's dinner laid out ready and chocolate for us on the table. We would recommend Gregor and ... MORE
MERLE (Featherston North Island, Apr 2019 - 1 month 1 week)
We are thrilled that Gregor and Ricki were our first housesitters. They were great and looked after our home well. Communication was frequent. We had real peace of mind. We're certain that Dash missed them both when they left.

BRIDGET (Plimmerton North Island, Dec 2018 - 3 weeks)
Ricki and Gregor looked after our house and 2 large dogs. They communicated regularly, sent us pictures of our girls, and were generally awesome. We came home to a clean house, freshly mowed lawns, and even a gift! It made our holiday that much more enjoyable to know that our house and dogs were being well looked after.

MARCUS (Wainuiomata, Lower Hutt North Island, Oct 2018 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Gregor and Ricki looked after our house and energetic dog for 9 days whilst we were on holiday and did a great job. We came home to an impeccably clean house and a happy dog whom they walked regulaly. We were very happy with how they looked after our home and we would definitely recommend them as very capable house sitters.
GRANT (Owhiro Bay North Island, Oct 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
Many thanks to Gregor and Ulriki for their house-sitting, the house was impeccably clean upon our return, the chickens were happy and the cat may even had lost some weight! (This is a good thing!) We appreciate dropping us off to the airport and the pick up as well.
ANNA (Kelson North Island, Sep 2018 - 4 weeks)
Gregor and Ulrike - absolutely wonderful house-sitters. They looked after my chickens and cat, and my home, for just over 3 months. I can't recommend them highly enough. Just brilliant. My "girls" were looked after amazingly well and when I returned my house was soooo clean and tidy. Fabulous couple. Totally recommend them.
LYNNE (Featherston North Island, May 2018 - 4 months)
