Reliable, responsible, retired couple

Rob & Dorothea, both retired live in Taranaki. Rob was involved with the dairy industry for 50 years while Dorothea was employed in an accountants office. We own our own home and have a 3/4 acre section next door where we grew beef animals and pet lambs for many years and now grow Christmas trees. Until we started travelling regularly, both within NZ and overseas we always had a cat. Dorothea is a real cat lover and we're very familiar with most farm animals. We also have a large vegetable garden and many fruit trees.
We would like to become involved with house sitting to enjoy more of NZ and see where it takes us.

They are a lovely couple who came at short notice although it was a short stay we came home to a cooked meal and we'll looked after animals would recommend them as sitters and wouldn't hesitate to have them sit again
GAYLENE AND MERV (Opotiki North Island, Jun 2021 - 2 days)
Gaylene & Merv were very welcoming and hospitable even though we were very late arriving. The dogs were easy to look after and the chooks and sheep almost looked after themselves. Set in well established native bush .Certainly recommend this job to anyone.
Rob and Dorothea were excellent house sitters>>A mature and very trust worthy couple, and most importantly got on extremely well with our two small dachshunds. Would definitely recommend them, or have them stay again for a future trip
