Pet lovers on a world tour

32, Freelance journalist

33, Graphic designer

Hi there!

We are Melanie (32, freelance journalist) and Alex (33, graphic designer) from Southern Germany. We are an outgoing, friendly, tidy and very reliable couple looking forward to meeting pets and their owners in New Zealand :-)

We are both self-employed and non-smokers. Since May 2018, we are travelling around the globe without using airplanes.
Melanie enjoys nature, hiking and doing yoga, Alex is an artist who loves skateboarding and drawing.

Since April 2019, we have been housesitting on several occasions in Australia and in New Zealand and loved every single sit!

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Melanie & Alex are excellent house sitters and generally wonderful people! Communication was easeful and clear. I really appreciated coming home to a clean and tidy house with fresh sheets on the bed, washing done, a new bag of cat food and a happy cat. I would recommend them to anyone needing a trustworthy and reliable house/pet sitter.

Melanie and Alex took great care of our home while we were away. Our cats and chooks were happy and well fed, the house was tidy and they even baked us some yummy treats for when we arrived home. Communication before and during the house sit was easy and prompt. Thanks Alex and Melanie,

Melanie and Alex, provided a lot of information before arriving and kept us well informed during their stay. It was also lovely to receive photos of the animals.
