Vet Nurse/Curator/Pet Photography/Photo Restorer


I am approaching my 70th housesit with Kiwi Housesitters- it is a lifestyle that I enjoy and I am committed to providing the highest level of care to pets and property alike. I have been housesitting for friends and strangers since the late 1980s. My housesitting travels takes me the length of New Zealand. I am not looking for partially funded holiday accommodation, housesitting is my lifestyle and I bring with me qualifications and experience to each sit. I believe that a homeowner needs the reassurance of this type of background to feel full confidence when inviting a stranger into a position of responsibility and trust in their home.

As a registered nurse who has worked in the veterinary sector, I hold qualifications that mean I am able to work comfortably across a number of housesitting environments.

I have also worked as a museum curator, a position demanding a high degree of professionalism and personal integrity. I have several excellent, verifiable references. In addition to the references, I hold a Police Clearance do not smoke. Further, I have worked for in the security industry and am extremely conscious of the importance of locking doors, checking windows and, where appropriate, setting alarms.

Please contact me directly if you would like to discuss the possibility of me housesitting for you. If you wish, I can supply a contract which sets out a useful frame for explicitly setting out what services you want me to provide as your housesitter.

In addition to performing the custodial and pet care duties normally provided in a housesit I also do pet photography and would be delighted to supply you with affordable permanent images of your animals.

Kind regards,

Jane Ferrier

We were fortunate to have Jane house sit recently for 6 weeks. She gave wonderful care to our 3 dags and our house was spotless. Our dogs absolutely loved having Jane here which gave us great peace of mind while we were away. She also very kindly mowed our lawns. Jane's communication both prior to coming and while we were away was excellent. We returned from our holiday for 10 days then went away again. Jane stayed during that time and was both helpful and really great company. I have no ... MORE

Thoroughly recommend Jane who took great care of the house and had a special rapport with the animals who were well looked after. Regular communications enabled us to have a worry free break

No rating Jane is simply the best! Looked after our motley menagerie beautifully and kept in touch with us daily to advise how they were, which was extremely reassuring. Highly highly recommended!

Safe house!

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