Dear animal lovers and house owners, thanks for reading about us.

Please see our 27 5 stars reviews on trusted-housesitter page.
We are a couple who loved our years of working, now at this point we enjoy traveling in NZ since we are lockdowners and decided to stay in NZ. Our Visa to stay here is granted. Yes we are very experienced in meeting new people, all kinds of animals and different lifestyles. Our roots are from Switzerland and Germany. Nature is something we need to breath in and out, walking your dogs and spend the day outside is a perfect happy day for us. Especially we like quiet even remote rural places. Sometimes we also truly enjoy the vibe of a city. Our lifestyle is quite simple, but of course we love to celebrate life. Our focus is to keep our mind and soul in balance. If there is a possibility we spend time to practice yoga and meditation. We are non smokers, drug free, stress free and calm people. At this time of our life we will travel a lot and also for longer time. In Europe we have a Camper van, the small type. We are home owners of 2 big houses , one villa in Thailand Koh Samui on the beach and one house in Stuttgart Germany. We do rent apartments for long terms and in Koh Samui on the beach for schort holidays. Thru that we have plenty of experience to understand how to look after your house, property and animals as it would be our own, with a lot of love for the animals and your precious home. We are a great team since 24years living together and married.
We have done over 32 housesit around the world.
I did housesitting for 6 month in South-Africa, and the USA, and a wonderful old mill in rural France.
In S.A. we did a long term housesit with 26 animals.
A delightful one in England.
At this time we are touring in Asia until mid of March
Recently we just doing a housesit in Cape-Town with a Husky Malamute a great experience with this strong walking beauty.
We where in Singapure with great Boo.
We took care for a B&B in the Provence in France.
Our 2019 travel with our camper van gave us the opportunity to house sit in France again and Portugal and Spain.
At the end of the year we sit for 7 dogs, 3 cats and 2 parrots for 5 weeks in Ibiza.
2020 started in Australia with a amazing experience on a small farm with a horse, donkeys, chicken and 2 dogs and the one cat seriously believed she is a baby, and a lorikeet parrot.
In Melbourne we are looking after 4 Dachhshund - 2 with inkontinent issues. There are so cute and loveable.

First and most we love all animals, except reptiles (Kurt) i have spend my childhood holidays on Swiss-farms and know how to understand animals in there on personality and different needs. It is a great happiness for us to be with your animals and serve them out of our heart. If there need any specific care this is not a problem for us, we had animals but not anymore they all went to the rainbow land. We will always carry them in our hearts so we decided to try house sittings and cuddle your beloved animals. In the meantime we done many housesits with all kinds of dogs and cats and not to forget our incredible experience in South Africa with 15 monkeys. The baby one was just born when we arrived at the private rescue farm for monkeys. The mother didn't have milk , and so it happens we got by surprise a small monkey boy in the house to hand feed and take care 24 hours. We truly loved this experience. At the same time we love adventures walks and exploring the new surroundings and meet new people. We our self also looking do buy a property somewhere in Europe maybe in France. In this way we can also explore the countrys and there lifestyle.
Naturally we do know how imported it is, to feel good about the people who stay in your house and be sure you're animals been treated with tenderness and lots of cuddles. We do our best that you can leave
with a great peace on your mind, that your beloved animals will have a wonderful holiday with us.
We bring all our experience with from living in tropical jungle, living on a sailboat, small villages, big city's, rural , mountain and ,beach places.
We are mostly at home in the evening to enjoy a peaceful time.

We do have many great reviews from past housesittings thru Trustedhousesitter, please feel free and check them. Amrita and Kurt Germany Stuttgart easy to find us.

A & K are the best of the best! They are the most caring, loving, tidy, thoughtful and professional people you will ever meet. We left them with a big house, farm animals and a very needy, anxious cat who rarely ventured outside. We were quite worried about him but quickly realised that there was absolutely no need for concern. Within a very short time they had him enjoying the outdoors again. Amrita actually carried him around at first to make him feel safe outside again! Nothing was ever a ... MORE
JESSICA (Kaikoura South Island, Jul 2020 - 1 week 4 days)
These guys were amazing. Our pets could not have been more loved or look after. They sent regular videos of the adventures they took our dog on and loved him and our cat like their own
JANE (Bethlehem North Island, Jan 2022 - 2 1/2 weeks)
Amrita and Kurt were the perfect house and dog sitters for our puppy Molly. They were incredibly attentive to Molly's needs and thoroughly spoilt her while we were away. Molly developed a sore leg the day before they arrived so we were a little concerned about her welfare. Amrita communicated with us regularly sending photos, texts and voice messages to reassure us that she was doing OK. This was very much appreciated. On our return the house was in immaculate condition. It has been cleaned ... MORE
ANDREW (Plimmerton North Island, Dec 2021 - 10 days)
What a pleasure to have these guys in our home to take care of the animals, house and garden while we were away. Amrita and Kurt are a lovely couple who is very reliable, ambitous, tidy, great with animals and they took care of everything. While we are on holiday, they have sent us every other day a video showing our satisfied animals and property and gave us a great feeling about it. They are great communicators and did an outstanding job. I can highly recommend them. Furthermore both of them ... MORE
JUERGEN (Carterton North Island, Oct 2021 - 1 week 5 days)
We were thrilled to have Amrita and Kurt housesit for us. They had great reviews and certainly lived up to their reputation. It was nice to be able to meet them before we left and we knew that our animals would be well cared for during our absence. Amrita kept in contact with us and sent us photos of the animals (and the snow!!) while we were away! They certainly went the extra mile which extended to giving our shy cat personalised room service meals! Upon our return we found the house to be ... MORE
ANNE (Oturehua South Island, Oct 2021 - 1 week 1 day)
Amrita and Kurt were amazing! They took such incredible care of our 3 dogs and loved them like they were their own. They went above and beyond with their care not only with the dogs but with our home as well. I can not say thank you enough for everything they did while I was away to take care of my Mum and not knowing when I would be back. Their communication was fantastic and sent updates and photos regularly which allowed me to not have to worry as I always knew everything was fine. Lovely, ... MORE

Thank you Amrita and Kurt for taking excellent care of our home and our pets while we escaped for a two week holiday. They were well taken care of and it was a treat to arrive home to homemade pea soup. I recommend Amrita and Kurt to other homeowners. Great communication and regular updates of our pets. All the best�
LEANNE (Manapouri South Island, Jul 2021 - 2 weeks)
Amrita and Kurt were wonderful houses sitters and my dog Moss was super happy and well cared for while I was away. They sent regular updates and pictures/videos of my dog and left the house in an immaculate condition. I would gladly have them back anytime!
HANNAH (Oamaru South Island, Jun 2021 - 4 days)
Amrita and Kurt house sat for us in April 2021. They are a wonderful, caring couple that took great care of our dog Buddy, and our house. We liked them as soon as we met them! Buddy is a elderly Spaniel, almost 14, with recently diagnosed Cushings Disease. He needs a bit more care and attention, but this did not worry Amrita and Kurt at all. We had no hesitation leaving Buddy with them, and there were no problems while we were gone. On our return, I found fresh flowers from the garden ... MORE
ALISON (Wanaka South Island, Apr 2021 - 6 days)
Amrita and Kurt...simply the best! I can't recommend these lovely people highly enough. I came home to a very happy, relaxed dog who had obviously formed quite a bond with both Amrita and Kurt. My chickens were fine, the house was perfect, the garden had been attended to, and the lawns were freshly mown. I really couldn't have asked for anything more and have already booked them to return for almost a month. I feel completely relaxed and confident having Amrita and Kurt look after Sasha and the ...

VAL (Cromwell - outside , Apr 2021 - 1 week)
An amazing genuine caring respectful couple who went above and beyond with taking care of our home and our 3 dogs. Very loving, gentle and capable people. Highly recommended. Great communication. Loved receiving a regular update and photos. I didn't have to worry at all.
CARLA (Harihari South Island, Mar 2021 - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
Amrita and Kurt are five star sitters! We were so lucky to have them sit for us at very short notice. They took exceptional care of our six dogs and sent regular photos and updates of how they were while we were away - which made us feel very comfortable that they were in charge. They checked the horses and stock water regularly. Our home was spotless when we arrived back - inside and out, and even a meal waiting for us when we returned. Our garden had been well looked after and ... MORE
VIV (Bridge Pa North Island, Mar 2021 - Two weeks.)
Amrita and Kurt have been perfect sitters. We couldn't ask for better people to look after our fur baby while we were away! Bonnie is generally a nervous dog and it takes some time for her to get used to new people but despite being a bit sceptical at the start it only took few minutes and she was curled upin Amrita's arms! Both Amrita and Kurt are lovely, genuine, interesting and generous people. We enjoyed getting to meet them and spending time with them upon our return. We feel like we ... MORE
VIOLETTA (Governors Bay South Island, Dec 2020 - 2 weeks 6 days)
Such a lovely couple. The house and pets were well looked after and even a lovely cake baked for our return.
MARGIE (Rotorua , Oct 2020 - 12 days)
We are so grateful to have had Amrita and Curt look after our home and dog. They are kind and were very loving towards our dog. They are punctual and have excellent communication and left our home lovely and clean. We happily recommend them to others as great house sitters.
MARICA (Tuakau North Island, Oct 2020)
We couldn't have picked better house sitters Amrita and Kurt are absolutely lovely and took such amazing care of our house and our much loved family dog Brixton. We got loads of photos and updates on how Brixton was enjoying his time with Amrita and Kurt. I can't recommend them enough and we will definitely invite them back when we go away next. Thanks Trien
TRIEN (Aongatete North Island, Sep 2020 - 1 week)
Amrita and Kurt were absolutely fabulous. The dogs were literally in 7th heaven and we couldn't have asked for better sitters. We will recommend them to anybody and would gladly welcome them back into our house.
PAUL (Onewhero North Island, Sep 2020 - 2 Days)
I couldn't speak more highly of Amrita and her partner. My dog was relaxed and happy and my house was like a new pin! We had a beautiful connection and I would recommend them both in a heartbeat.
KIM (Sunnybrook North Island, Sep 2020 - 2 days)
Amrita and Kurt were a lovely couple. They sent pictures and updates frequently about the dogs, putting our minds at rest about the house sit. We'd definitely recommend them! Our dogs loved them.
