No rating Warm, genuine and trustworthy comes to mind if my husband and I were to describe Heather and Jamie. We were so nervous even at the thought of leaving our 2 dogs and a cat with strangers, but after coming across Heather and Jamie on this site and meeting with them in person, we had no such worries and we were in no doubt they will take the best of care of our fur babies and our home. We received frequent message/photo updates of our pack at home and on their walking adventures. And things ... MORE
ANYA (Laingholm North Island, Jul 2018 - 3 months)
Heather and Jamie are a lovely couple who we highly recommend as being very respectful, reliable, friendly and easy to have as house sitters. They looked after our home for 2.5 months whilst we were away travelling from mid September to early December 2019. At all times, communication with Heather and Jamie was easy and prompt. The house and gardens (including pool and spa) were very neat and tidy on our return - we could not have done better. Consequently, when we came home the ... MORE
BILL & SUE (Farm Cove North Island, Sep 2019 - 2 months 2 weeks)
Jamie and Heather are the best house sitters ever. I honestly think our woofs would have gone home with them quite happily! They are delightful, caring fun people who went out of their way to make our two dogs feel safe with long walks in the park and cuddles on the bed (over and above the call of duty)!! Our three alpacas were totally comfortable with them and we loved the fun photos they sent us of their interactions with them and the boys. Our home was kept beautifully and a delicious meal ... MORE
SHER (East Tamaki Heights North Island, Aug 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
Heather and Jamie were absolutely brilliant! The first time I've not had to write an exhaustive list of instructions for our complex pets! We came to a house much more clean than we left it and two dogs and a cat who hadn't missed us! Would have them back in an instant! Thanks so much guys!
KIRSTIN (Kohimarama North Island, Jul 2019 - 2 weeks 1 day)
What a wonderful pair of housesitters Heather and Jamie are. They cared for our little hound so well and she loved them to bits. Our home was immaculate upon our return. We highly recommend them for your next sit.
MARGOT (Dannemora North Island, Apr 2019 - 4 weeks)
Heather and Jamie are a secret we didn't want to share. The house was wonderfully kept when we returned and we didn't have to do a thing. All of our animals and plants were well nurtured. Heather and Jamie are a wonderfully warm and personable couple. We would recommend them unreservedly. Thank you both for allowing us a worry free holiday.
DEZ & TANIA (Mangere Bridge North Island, Apr 2019 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Heather and Jamie were awesome! From the moment we met them we felt our pets and house were in the best hands. Their communication from the outset was prompt and friendly. While we were away, we had plenty of updates and photos which meant we could just enjoy our honeymoon without any worry. When we returned the house was immaculate and both pets were happy and settled. The dog was actually fitter from all the frequent runs he went on. We would highly recommend this couple and would ...

LUCI (Glen Innes North Island, Sep 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating Heather and Jamie were absolutely wonderful! Our 3 big dogs, the 2 cats and the 2 kune pigs were well spoiled and very well looked after. The house coming was great and Jamie even mowed all our paddocks for us(23 acres), as we didn't have any stock for the 3 months we were away.They coped with trees blown over and a power cut of 3 days, well done. I highly recommend Heather and Jamie. THANK you both so much!
PAULINE (Kaukapakapa North Island, Mar 2018 - 3 months)
No rating It was so lovely having Heather and Jamie looking after our dog Ruby and our cat Alice. We found them both amazing and friendly people. They took excellent care of our house and pets, and would totally recommend them. It was also lovely to meet them before and after our holiday and chat to them about our pets and house.
LYNNE (Papakura North Island, Nov 2017 - 21 days)
No rating We used this website for the first time, we interveiwed a few couples but Jamie & Heather just stood out miles apart with their friendly and out going approach to life. We also loved that their attention and bonding to our fur babies was high on the scale which is really what the housesit was about for us. When we arrived home the house was in immaculent condition and the pets could not of been happier. Thanks guys we would highly reccommend and use them again everytime.
STEPH (Point Chevalier North Island, Oct 2017 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Highly recommend Heather and Jamie to look after your house and your animals. Charlie was sad to see them go. It felt great to go away for so long knowing that our dog was in great hands and our house was being well looked after. Such a lovely couple.
LEANNE (West Harbour , Sep 2017)
No rating Heather and Jamie looked after our house and pets for six weeks and they were fantastic. They looked after our fur babies so well and they all got lots of fuss and love. When we arrived home the house was in lovely condition and so clean and it was so nice to find the little extras in the fridge and cupboards. Have to add that our dog had his usual checkup at the vets for his skin and eyes ( he is special needs for allergies ) just after we got home and he commented on how well our housesitters ... MORE
GEMMA & JASON (Hauraki/Takapuna North Island, Jul 2017 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating Heather & Jamie did a great job looking after our two dogs and kept in touch by email whilst we were overseas. They also respectfully looked after our home, even going to the trouble of washing bedding and making sure everything was perfect for our return. We would be very happy to have them back. Thanks guys!
REBECCA & GEOFF (Northcote Point North Island, Jul 2017 - 2 weeks 4 days)
No rating Fantastic couple, we had no worries at all while we were away for a month. Heather & Jamie looked after our 2 dogs, 2 goats, 4 sheep and lifestyle property. They kept us updated while we were away with emails and photos. We came home to a clean house, mown lawns and fresh bread, wine and eggs on the bench. Would highly recommend.
PAUL (Albany North Island, Jun 2017 - 3 weeks)
No rating What a great couple! Heather and Jamie house sat for us May 2017. They took great care of the house but more importantly our golden retriever Harry who seemed very content with life on our return. Would not hesitate recommending them.
BELINDA (Stanmore Bay North Island, May 2017 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Heather and Jamie were the best house sitters we could have asked for. It was peace of mind leaving our two furbabies with someone who we could trust. Both Heather and Jamie came with multiple references and we felt confident knowing our home and dogs would be well looked after whilst we were away. They stayed in contact with us despite our limited cell service and gave us updates on how the dogs were. Upon return the house was lovely and clean and was great to have feedback on how the house ... MORE
FAY (Drury North Island, May 2017 - 1 week 4 days)
No rating Heather and Jamie are fantastic house sitters!! They are reliable, trustworthy and very respectful- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! Right from the get go they were amazing-great communication and such lovely people. They took such great care of the house and our dog Juno, we think she may have enjoyed her time with them more than her normal home routine!! They took her for lots of walks and stayed in touch during our holiday. It really made going away so easy, we'd have them back in a heartbeat. We came ... MORE
EMMA (Riverhead , Mar 2017)
No rating Heather and Jamie were lovely dog/housesitters! They couldn't have looked after Knuffle and the house better and were also great to talk to during the evening before the housesit when we were having a meal together. Heather made us very welcome when we arrived back from our holiday and she prepared a nice meal for us. We wish them all the best and shall certainly approach them for our next holiday to look after Knuffle.
GERRY (Shelly Park North Island, Feb 2017 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Heather and Jamie house sat for me in January for 10 days while I was away on holiday. They took great care of both the property and the pets (cat and dog), keeping the place clean and tidy. A pleasant and easy going couple and I have no issues recommending them for future house sits.
JONATHAN (Laingholm North Island, Jan 2017 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Heather and Jamie were fantastic housesitters. They were so easy going and great with the dogs & cat. We would highly recommend them to everyone. They cooked us a lovely meal on our return which was great. We would love to have them housesit for us again. Good luck with your travelling adventures. Cheers, Janine & Alex
JANINE & ALEX (Brooklyn North Island, Jan 2017 - 1 week)
No rating Jamie and Heather looked after our place over the Christmas Period and we couldn't be happier with them. They left our home spotless and our Pets were more than well looked after - Guinness looked better groomed upon our return than when we left!! Thank you Jamie and Heather - you did a wonderful job and we would love to have you back in the future... Well Done!!
MICHAEL AND NANCY (Broadfield, Christchurch South Island, Dec 2016 - 4 days)
No rating Jamie and Heather house sat for me while I was away over Christmas. Both my pets (German Shepherd dog and Persian cat) are rescues, both have "issues", but I came home to find them both happy, contented, obviously well cared for. Also, the house was spotless, they'd even made up my bed ready for me, left a loaf of fresh bread in the pantry, folded a pile of washing I hadn't had time to do, and washed all the linen. Very friendly and easy to communicate with: I can't recommend them highly enough.
JENNIFER (Woolston South Island, Dec 2016 - 5 days)
No rating Jamie and Heather were brilliant everything was perfect, even cooked us tea when we got home Don't think our wee dog even missed us.We loved them and Would highly recommend them. Thank you so much
LYNN (Highfield South Island, Nov 2016 - 3 days)
No rating We came home to happy animals and a tidy house. Everything had been cared for brilliantly. Thanks Jamie and Heather
MARION (Oturehua South Island, Nov 2016 - 2 weeks)
No rating Jamie and Heather were fantastic house and pussy cat sitters.They are reliable and trust worthy. Our house was very well looked after and we were sent pictures and updates of the cats- which was nice. Even though they encountered some of the more curious antics of the cats - they did seem to enjoy them which is really important. We would love to have them back - the kitties would to!
DIANA (strathmore North Island, Oct 2016 - 1 week 4 days)
