52, Veterinarian

51, Key account manager

We are a family of 4 based in Auckland, originally from South Africa. We are now permanent residents of this wonderful country after immigrating 5 years ago.

Lina is 52 and a veterinarian. Most of her career was in companion animal practice, but joined MPI's Live Animal team 3 years ago..

Pierre is 51 and a Key Account Manager with a tyre company.

We have two children, Linette (21) and Reinhard (18). They will rarely join us on our housesitting adventures.

We owned and lived on a lifestyle block for many years, where we always had lots of dogs (big and small), cats and horses. We competed in equine endurance riding.

I am a registered cat breeder of Selkirk rex and Lambkin.

We are responsible, respectful, neat and honest.


Hope to hear from you soon!!

Lina was awesome. We came home to a spotless house and happy animals, with great communication before, during and after. It was great to be able to go away after so long, having full peace of mind that all the animals were in good hands. Highly recommend! x

Lina did a great job looking after my house and all the animals. The dogs were healthy and happy on my return and also the rest of the farm animals. She showed great knowledge and commitment taking care of all the animals, from the small fish to the large alpacas. The communication were good from the start and her reports were useful and informative. She has a good problem solving skills and sorted out any issue with ease. She kept the house clean and returned it in a better state then it was ... MORE

House Security

Safe house!

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