Kind, reliable and caring

48, Writer/Artist/Earth traveller

I have been housesitting/pet for the past 2 1/2 years, mainly in Somerset (UK). I have really enjoyed this experience and the hosts invite me back to sit again. I am reliable, responsible and caring.

Im a Kiwi, and Im back in NZ again. When you go on your travels/holiday/break you will feel reassured that all is taken care of. I enjoy the company of the animals and I am respectful of other peoples space.

I am a quiet person, whom enjoys the subtleties of life, and healthy foods and lifestyles.

Arohanui, Nicola

Nicola housesat for a month while I was overseas. This included the care of my 2 border collies, Scout & Ice, and my cat, Thomas. All the animals were so well looked after, with lots of walks & cuddles. We had regular contact, with messages & videos while I was away. This helped put my mind at rest to know the animals were so happy. Nicola is a lovely lady, and I would have no hesitation in having her back again.

Thanks Kathy!
We felt very fortunate to have had Nicola look after our dog and cat, both of whom are in their "mature" years. It was obvious from Nicola's communications with us while travelling that she had an excellent understanding of and rapport with both animals. We felt very confident that the house and animals were in capable hands with Nicola in charge and we would most happily invite her back at any time in the future. Thank you Nicola!

We both took an instant liking to Nikola when we met her. She is a very relaxed and affable person who instills confidence in her ability to be responsible and caring. While we are away Nikola kept in touch through messenger messaging, also sent photos of our wee dog to us, and kept our house in fine shape. We had no concerns, nothing went wrong and our dog was super happy. Thanks for taking her to the beach and kept company. Appreciated We highly recommend Nikola as a housesitter. Sachiko, ... MORE

Thankyou Sachiko!
Thanks Nicola for looking after our dogs and cat while we were in Europe. We were delighted that you were able to win over Bluey the cat so quickly, as he is so wary of strangers. That says a lot about your affinity with animals. Best wishes for your future sits. Robert

Thanks Margo!
We found Nicola very easy and professional to communicate with. We came home to a very clean and tidy place and happy cat :) would definitely recommend Nicola as a housesitter, and hope to have her look after our cat again in the future.

Nicola came and looked after our rural property over the holiday break and we couldn't have asked for more. Nicola was easy and very pleasant to communicate with, replied to all messages promptly and was 100% reliable. Nicola fitted in instantly with the cats and was very quick to pick up on what needed to be done. When we got back the house was immaculate and the cats and chickens obviously well cared for and very relaxed. It worked so well Nicola is coming back later in the month to do ... MORE

No rating Nicola looked after our house and our little chihuahua, Bertie, while we were away for ten days. She was quick to respond in advance of the sit, and during it. We found Nicola to be a very warm, friendly and considerate. and we came back to a very clean and tidy home and a happy dog. Can't ask for much more! Would definitely recommend.
