69, Happily Retired

Phil and I have both recently retired..sold our lovely home in Whangamata...where we have happily lived for 30 years...We have now purchased a section and plan to build in approx. mid 2020? hopefully we will be in for Christmas 2020?
We are now touring around NZ...car...bikes...golf clubs and each other...PURRRFECT!! We just love this country and are in a position to watch over your home and treasured pets...We can consider any location.....
Phil and I have recently housesat in Whangamata for 5 months looking after their precious little dog...we were asked to return this year but unfortunately their dog has passed away...this leaves us with a rather large gap in the year....We absolutely love animals , and they absolutely love us back...eg...while writing this we are in arrowtown motorcamp...and who is sleeping on our bed already...YIP...the camp ground pet CAT...
Phils background is in sales while I have been a massage therapist..together we have been running a gourmet gift box business and in the last 10 years also been working at the local Golf Club Pro Shop....we both love cycling..walking..swimming..golf..family and friends...AND FOOD..and if you are lucky there may just be a yummy cake waiting your return...really hope to hear from you !!
Sunshine and Happiness from Clare and Phil....since writing this we have completed a 3 month cat since in Katikati...a 5 week dog sit in Feilding and tomorrow start another 5 week dog/cat/fish sit in Havelock north...LOVING IT ALL but always sad to say goodbye to cool little mates we have got to know. Now 2020...still awaiting title on our section and unfortunately have just had 2 long term housesits cancelled due to covid virus...so if anyone is out there looking for the perfect couple!!! hey touch base with us...Many thanks

Clare & Phil are the most amazing couple who we would trust any time to both look after our house and our dog Gem. Gem was so well looked after. They regularly sent us photos to keep us updated which was really wonderful. Our house was beautifully looked after, our cook top has never looked cleaner! We couldn't believe it when we came home to find Clare had baked us the most superb raspberry custard slice and amazing bliss balls, all beautifully presented. They are the best and we definitely ...

I cannot thank Clare & Phil enough for the care of our house and pet. Due to the Corona Virus we drastically cut our holiday short arriving back home after only a month of the three month house sit, they did everything in their power to accommodate us even though it was a trying time for them as well. The house and garden looked amazing, better than we left it. We can highly recommend Clare and Phil without a moments hesitation, What a lovely couple, we would definitely want them to house sit ...

Simply lovely couple. On our return the house was hotel clean with fresh sheets on the bed and flowers from tge garden on the table. Tinks our cat looks very contented, pleased to have us back but clearly well looked after. Best bit was the amazing lemon cake baked with lemons from our tree, could rival any NZ cafe!

Clare and Phil were the perfect house sitters and we wish to recommend them to all those seeking a sitter in their home. They cared for our property and pets to the highest level, so much so that the animals almost ignored our return in anticipation Clare or Phil would be attending to their needs !!!. The house was spotless, lawns mown and a tasty dinner awaiting us on our return from overseas. They are highly recommended by us and we hope Clare and Phil can house sit for us again in the future.
IAN (Havelock North North Island, Aug 2019 - 1 month 1 week)
Clare and Phil really are 5 star house sitters. They looked after my Jack Russell Ruby as if she was their own, she is missing them already! I was kept in touch via email with photos of Ruby enjoying her walks The house was immaculate on my return as well as lovely baking and a beautiful flower arrangement to welcome me home. I would have them both back to house sit in a heartbeat and recommend them with confidence. New friends made and they are always welcome.

Clare and Phil were the greatest house sitters anyone could wish for. The house and gardens were left immaculate and Clare had made a lovely cake to greet us when we arrived home. Our very special cat had been lovingly looked after including his daily brushing and cuddles at night. We certainly will not hesatate to use them in the future if they are available.
