Pet and House Sitter

Gardener Designer/Musician

Hi there, I am a kiwi, and have owned and loved many pets over the years. My heart gets broken each time one passes, so it is much easier to look after your pets, therefore would love to help you out.

I am quiet, a non smoker, home owner and security conscious so will look after both your loved pets and property with care.
Being a part time worker, Gardener.
Housesitting gives me the opportunity to go to different towns and cities, also try my hand at busking, as music is an absolute passion of mine.
I have done over 35 house sits now, a number of which are now getting to be part of my regular house sitting circle.
I find it such a joy to be able to help people in this small way, while in turn giving me the closeness and love of animals.

You will also see in my photo gallery my beloved adored friends, it is all about the animals.

The last photo is one of 4 kittens I rescued before lockdown 4, dumped under a bridge, unfortunately 3 were deceased (but I did take them home and bury them. I kept "Thomas" he helped keep me sane for 6 weeks. I have now found him an extraordinary home, let me tell you I shed a lot of tears the night he left

No rating I highly recommend Helen to look after your fur babies and home. I have never left my dog or used a house sitter before so was really stressing out before going on holiday and I really truly didn't need to be. I came back to a very relaxed happy dog and cat that had obviously been loved and taken care of and a spotless house. I will definitely give Helen a call and hope she's not booked the next time we go away.

Helen was absolutely amazing with Cosmo and my home and small garden. Such a wonderful woman with so much talent, skills and great energy on all levels. i welcome Helen back into my home anytime to simply 'take over' the reins. Thank you so much Helen.

I can't praise Helen enough, she is an amazing person to have house and pet sit for us. Her main priority was our loveable Staffy, Oscar whom she treated as if he were her own. We came home to a very chilled out pet after his time with Helen. She is a caring, organised and respectful person who looked after both our pet and home extremely well. Her communication is excellent and I would certainly recommend her to other pet owners.
JEANETTE (Havelock North , Aug 2019 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Helen did the most wonderful job of looking after our home and little dog. Lacey can be an anxious little thing but with Helens obvious love and care she made us feel very happy about leaving her in such capable hands. We would love to have Helen back another time and we know that Lacey would too! Thanks so much Helen.

Helen looked after our house and pets for 3 weeks. Having never used a house sitter before we were naturally a bit nervous but we were put at ease the minute we meet Helen. Her love for pets is obvious as is her respect for people and property. Helen had excellent communication and we wouldn't hesitate recommending her to others. We hope Helen will sit for us again some time.

I could not speak highly enough of Helen. She was great at communicating and was very pleasant and helpful to deal with. Helen is obviously an animal person and from the moment she arrived our two dogs were the centre of her attention. We felt very relaxed going away and leaving our house and fur babies in her capable hands. When we returned the house in lovely and clean and tidy and dogs happy. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a Housesitter and would love to have her ... MORE

Helen arrived before we departed to meet our pets, immediately I recognised we had a person who was genuine, trustworthy and caring, and I felt completely at ease leaving Helen with our pets and home. It didn't take long for our trio of two dogs and one cat to take a shine to Helen and build a lovely trusting relationship over the week. Helen left our home beautifully clean and tidy which was lovely to arrive home too. Additionally, our garden was well watered which was a saviour over the ... MORE
WALLIS (Pyes Pa , Jan 2019)
Helen was absolutely amazing! It was so lovely to come from home from 2 weeks away to find happy pets, well cared for gardens and immaculately clean home - possibly even tidier than before we went! Helen's communication was fabulous and she assured us on many occasion that everything was fine and the pets were all going along well. She had her work cut out for her with 2 cats, a young pup and chickens, but you could tell she went the extra mile to make sure all were well loved and given special ... MORE

Helen was a great house sitter and I would thoroughly recommend her! I was very nervous leaving our two dogs as one dog especially can be difficult and nervy - they obviously had lots of fun and love as they kept looking for her after we came home!! Must have been the 3 walks a day! The house was well looked after too! Great to come home to a clean tidy house! Thank you so much Helen.

No rating Helen once again was a perfect Housesitter and took care of our dog Marlowe like she was her own. Highly recommend and look forward to having Helen back again.

No rating Helen was a great sitter. Our shy cat loved her and very much appreciated the brushing each day. There was great communication from Helen and would recommend her highly.
MAREE (Tauranga , Aug 2018)
No rating Helen's house sit with Pippa was excellent. It was evident that Pippa was well cared for and had a happy time with her walks. When we arrived home we found an immaculately tidy house and thoughtful notes from Helen about the house sit and even some valuable insights on horticulture advice. All very much appreciated. She is highly recommended as a house sitter. Peter And Vivienne

No rating Helen was a perfect sitter. She was prompt with communication, walked our Marlowe everyday and gave her lots of love which is exactly what we were after. I highly recommend Helen to look after your home and furry friend!

Safe house!

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