Reliable House Sitters and Absolute Animal Lovers

24, Food Technologist

26, BNZ Kiwi Saver Consultant

Hi there!
We've been housesitting in Auckland full-time since July 2018 and are loving it! We enjoy getting outdoors during the summer months and love a night in to cook good food with a glass of wine. We've always wanted pets but haven't been able to justify having one at this stage in our lives. House Sitting has allowed us to have animals around us nearly everyday, but without the long term commitment. So far we have experience with cats, dogs, fish, birds, chickens and chinchillas.

Our friends describe us as friendly, reliable and relaxed. Kelsi works as the New Product Development Manager at Angel Food and Hayden is a Kiwi Saver Consultant for BNZ.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Our references are also available on request.

We felt really comfortable when we first met Kelsi and Hayden, and the dogs seemed to love them, which is why we chose them to housesit for us. We went away for an amazing family holiday for a week, and it was made even more relaxing knowing our house and dogs were being looked after. When we came home, the house was clean and tidy and the dogs were extremely happy! We would definitely ask Kelsi & Hayden to housesit again for us when we have another holiday.

Kelsi and Hayden did a sit for us as we sunned ourselves in Rarotonga. We came home to a very clean and tidy house, with the bedding washed and on the clothesline drying. The cats looked healthy and fed. They did leave some stuff behind and still have not collected it after 5 days, despite being contacted. They need to sharpen their comms skills as instructions sent to his email were not received. Would we use them again, probably.

No rating Kelsi and Hayden were marvellous dogsitters. They kept in touch with us and our house was very clean and tidy when we returned. Our dogs were healthy and appeared to have been well looked after in our absence.

It was comforting to know that Tui was in her own home well looked after by such a caring young couple. They took her to the vet a few days after we left to have her stitches removed. Kelsi kept us informed of any minor query they had while we were away. Came home to a very happy puppy and a tidy house.

Kelsi and Hayden were wonderful housesitters/petminders. We received great communication with updates on all our furbabies, plus photos too! We came back to a clean and tidy house, and all of the animals were well-cared for and happy (our number one priority). I would highly recommend them to others, and hope they'll come back again :D
