Hi there,

We are a family from Germany (Katrin, Hendrik, Basti 12 years, Benni 7 years and Maleni 3 years) and just moved to Auckland. We travelled the world from Apr 2017 to Jun 2021 with house sits, and are interested in towns and villages, nature, the sea, mountains, lakes and rivers, museum, daily life ...

We are looking forward to getting in contact with you and discovering New Zealand!

We love intercultural exchange and would like to experience everyday life in other countries.
We want to explore the different places like a local and not like a tourist, and since we have no animals on our trip, we love to be surrounded by animals.

We are non-smokers, don't drink alcohol and don't consume drugs.

We (Hendrik and Katrin) grew up with dogs and other animals (hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, birds, mice, ducks etc. ) and also had a dog before we had children. Our children also love animals and are very happy to play and cuddle with them.
We've often looked after my parents' dog and have often walked with the neighbouring dogs. We'd our first House Sit at the end of Feb 2019 in Gibraltar and did over 20 since then. I (Hendrik) like to do small garden work and I'm a gifted craftsman.

Please contact us for a link where you can watch all our sits.

Hendrik, Katrin and their 3 children were fantastic sitters. Our senior dog and house were well loved. We returned to a tidy home, clean bedding & towels, and even a freshly baked cake! They were great at communicating during our time away which made it a very relaxing holiday for us!

Hendrik and family took good care of our house while we were away. It was good not having to worry about our plants or pet. We would recommend them to anyone.

Hendrik and Katrin and their children stayed at our house while we were away on Kangaroo Island. We felt instantly at easy after meeting them over a FaceTime call and knew they would take care of our home and dog. We arrived home to a clean house, washing done and a very happy little dog. Hendrik and Katrin kept us updated with some photos and were very easy to communicate with. We enjoyed meeting and chatting about our travels when we returned home. We would happily recommend this family to ... MORE

This lovely family looked after our place and our cat for 3 weeks over Christmas. We came back to a happy cat, a clean house and a freshly baked cake! Highly recommended!

Thanks for the short stay sit, place was left clean and tidy and sitters were very friendly. I would happily have them sit again any time.
