Lorraine and Ken

68, Retired

Hi There,

Ken and I have been happily married for 47 years, and have spent 45 of those in New Zealand. Living in Dunedin, Wellington, Levin (on a life style block with B&B for 12 years), Tauranga and Napier, again running a successful tourist apartment on the beach. A brief spell in the UK owning a country inn in Weardale.

Ken has recently retired from ship surveying following a long career in marine engineering and maritime safety, and we are currently living and travelling in our new motorhome. The idea of helping people with house sitting during these travels is very appealing. Ken has worked for the New Zealand government and was an officer in the RNZNVR, Lorraine having worked in the wine and hospitality industry, we both know the importance of honesty, trustworthiness and loyalty and believe these are the most important attributes of a house sitter. We are both very houseproud and meticulous, love animals and have owned dogs and kept cattle.

We are flexible in both dates and locations.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Warm Regards,
Lorraine and Ken Wyatt

What a lovely couple who took great care of our dogs and exercised them regularly, Left the house and pool immaculate and we came home to the most delicious meal. Thank you Lorraine and Ken, I hope you will be free next time we need a house sitter.

Great to have Lorraine & Ken look after our home and cats. Fabulous to arrive home late in the evening to a prepared meal & dessert. Property was left immaculate and could tell our cats were very happy, and fat! We have a shy one and was worried we would be coming home to a skeleton but can see she was at ease with Lorraine & Ken and warmed to them nicely. Good communication throughout and have no hesitation in recommending Lorraine & Ken to look after your property. Kind regards Sally & Jon, ... MORE

Ken and Lorraine were fantastic house/pet sitters! The house and garden were spotless when we returned and Lorraine cooked us a delicious meal! Ken also cleaned our car which was a real bonus and much appreciated! They are lovely, friendly people and we would definitely recommend them as wonderful house sitters!

Glad you both had a lovely stay while we were away. Couldn't have asked for a nicer couple. House was looked after great. Our Animals said that they were looked after just fine, and cant wait for you both to come back in the future. Would not hesitate to recommend them as AA++ Sitter's. Cheers Annette and Arran.

We can not thank Lorraine and Ken enough for the amazing care they took of our animals and our home for 3+ weeks while we were overseas They are a lovely, trustworthy and genuine couple who cared for our property and our 2 dogs incredibly. Our home and gardens was immaculate - even the windows ;) and the dogs were happy and healthy upon our return. We could not recommend them enough to anyone considering having their place and animals house sat. Thanks again guys - you made our holiday extra ... MORE

Thank you so much for that fantastic review, it made our day. We so loved looking after Issey and Alfie, so much fun on the beach and in the garden, and loved just pottering about the lovely house and garden.
