Responsible Animal Lovers!

28, Community Legal Education Coordinator

29, Primary School Teacher

We are a young professional couple who love animals and the outdoors. Rosie is from Wellington and works at a charity (Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley) providing free legal help, and Maya hails from Sydney and is a primary school teacher and keen photographer.

We are mature, quiet and responsible sitters, and treat house-sits with the care and attention we would our own home. We really love animal friends, and while our everyday life doesn't allow us to have our own pets right now, we are eager to provide cuddles to your animals while you're away.

We are both experienced with fish, dogs and cats (being former owners)-including those who are shy, skittish, or senior! We have experience looking after chickens and ducks, horses (although not grooming them-yet!), rats, sheep and lambs, cows and calves-at our last house-sit we had a baby calf born while we were there, which was really special.

We would love to care for your home and furry friends while you're away!

Thank you Rosie and Maya for taking good care of our house and animals while we were away. House was lovely and tidy to come home to and animals were well looked after. Would definitely recommend these house sitters.

Excellent sitters; Rosie and Maya looked after our pets really well. They took our dog to the vet whilst we were away and administered eye drops and ointment when he got grass seed in his eye and a resulting ulcer. The house was spotless when we returned. Much appreciated!

Thanks to Rosie & Maya for doing such a great job looking after Buster and the house! The house threw them a couple of curve balls while we were away, and they dealt with them admirably- great communication. Cheers, Sarah
