Respectful, tidy, animal loving couple

We are a couple in our late 20s and early 30s living in Wellington. We love housesitting because it combines two of the things we both really love; travelling and pets. Due to our current migratory situation we do not have pets and house sitting is a way we can enjoy the company of animals and explore new suburbs.

We have both had dogs and cats in the past. Nachi has also volunteered with the SPCA where she looked after chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs amongst others. She also attended a farm school and has experience caring for farm animals. We believe that animals are part of the family and will go above and beyond to ensure they are well looked after and don't miss their human family too much while you are away.

We have been housesitting since June 2021 and have become the biggest fans of it. We love being able to meet and spend time with many different fur-friends. Our days just wouldn't be fulfilled without some fur-company. We simply are animal people who love the opportunity to care for them while their family is away.

As well as our reviews on this site we also have excellent reviews on AirBnB and references from past landlords and housemates that we are really happy to share with you.

Alina and Nachi are amazing house sitters. We could not be happier with how they looked after our animals and home. They regularly communicated and send pictures of two very contented and spoiled dogs, and of our alpacas. When the hot water cylinder leaked they confidently dealt with the problem from turning off the water to finding a local plumber who would fix it upon our approval. Nothing seemed to faze them and the house was spotless when we returned. We highly recommend them to anyone ... MORE

We have no words to describe how amazing Alina & Nachi. We were meant to move to NZ in Aug '21 when borders closed and our pets had already been sent over. Through a series of crazy events, we were lucky to find Alina & Nachi who not only did a wonderful job of dealing with stressed pets that were missing us, but went above and beyond and surprised us by setting up our house and starting the unpacking process. We had a lot of things to stress about, but they made things so much easier, and made ... MORE

They were amazing. My plans changed and they were very flexible and supportive. My fur babies had the best time and were very well cared for. When I arrived home the place was spotless. I would highly recommend this lovely couple:)

Nachi and Alina were fantastic sitters. I would 100% have them back, Their communication was fantastic throughout the whole process, Monkey was well looked after and was content and happy when I returned. The house was spotless too. I would 100% recommend them as house sitters who obviously have a true love for animals.

Nachi and Alina were wonderful to have as house sitters. We had them stay the night before we left for our travels as we were leaving very early the day after. It was a pleasure to meet them and made it easy for us to leave our fur babies in safe hands. They offered to give us updates if we wanted it and they left the house very clean and tidy. Communication was very quick and easy and I would not hesitate giving them a reference to anyone that wishes to have them sit.

House Security

Safe house!

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