44, House Sitting & Travel

Hello! I'm Jen from Oregon.
I will take care of your home and pets as if they were my own. Have peace of mind while you are away knowing that your pets are in good company! I love animals and they seem to love me, too.
Formerly a restaurant manager/wine buyer, but now traveling full-time. I have my own cat and dog at my home in Oregon, USA and want to pay it forward for all the wonderful pet and house sitters that have helped me while I travel.
This is my 3rd time traveling to New Zealand, so I am familiar with both islands and want to explore while getting to know the communities I visit. I am very clean and tidy and enjoy keeping a lovely home and garden.

Jennifer came and house sat for us at short notice when our confirmed sitter cancelled. She is a really lovely person, and she was absolutely awesome as a house and pet sitter. She kept us informed about our pets on a regular basis. The house was immaculate on our arrival home. We would recommend her without hesitation.

Jennifer was the perfect house-sitter. She looked after my animals, garden, and home in the best way possible. She went out of her way to make sure everything was as clean and well maintained as possible. And she sent photos of the animals and spring flowers while I was a way, which was lovely. I would absolutely recommend Jennifer and would love to have her back.

Jen was the most wonderful housesitter and a lovely person too. She looked after our 2 cats and 2 rabbits extremely well and when one of our cats was in a fight with a neighbour's cat she let us know immediately and took him to the vet and then cared for him until our return. I highly recommend Jen as a caring, considerate and kind housesitter and pet minder. In fact I'm hoping Jen will return when we go away next year and housesit for us again.

Jennifer is a lovely person and was a great housesitter. Our animals were all very happy and loved having her here. The two dogs are currently missing having her around because she spent so much time playing with them. Jennifer very kindly did lots of shopping and household stuff in the latter part of her time as both of us ended up being sick! Definitely not part of the deal for her - but she was great. Thanks and welcome back anytime.
