Reliable, animal-friendly with happy faces!
52, Website/Graphic Designer

We have been responsible for over 25 homes in the past 2 years so we fully appreciate the responsibilities that come with staying in your home and most importantly, caring for your beloved animals.
We also know it can be a worrying time leaving your cherished animals with people you and your animals don't know. Our reviews speak volumes of 5-star happy animals and well cared for homes, so you will be able to enjoy your holiday having complete trust and confidence in us.
We consider ourselves to be responsible, meticulous and extremely reliable. We communicate well and it is in our nature to leave a place in spick and span condition. It is just how we roll. We are both non-smokers.
Susanne and I just love the experiences, opportunities and friendships housesitting forges too. We both share a passion for traveling and meeting new people and their animals. In fact, our most memorable holidays usually include wonderful animal encounters. Prior to covid, we were both living in Hamburg but due to the uncertain times in Europe, we decided to relocate back to New Zealand in search for an area we could settle down.
I am a freelance web/graphic designer and former executive director of a leading animal advocacy organisation in New Zealand. With nearly 25 years experience advocating on behalf of animals I feel I have a genuine respect and kinship with animals. Susanne (from Germany) also has a deep affinity with animals and is a qualified equine physiotherapist. In Hamburg, she was a MD managing a media agency specialising in personnel recruitment.
Our housesits range from a single cat/dog to a menagerie of 35 animals. We are experienced with timid and special need animals and have cared for cats, dogs, horses, donkeys, chickens, pigs, sheep, goats, cows and fish.
We have also been listed on TrustedHouseSitters.com since September 2019 so you will also find many more positive reviews on there too (ask for link).
