Responsible, thoughtful, caring.

I recently returned to lovely NZ after living in London and Vancouver for the last 15 years and I am available for house / pet sitting. Since I've been back, I've been doing a mixture of house sitting and Airbnb - including being a host - and have met so many lovely people and adorable animals along the way.
A few helpful things to know about me: - I work in marketing mostly for arts organizations including the Auckland Arts Festival and before that a large Shakespeare Festival in Vancouver. - I'm an animal lover and walked dogs with the SPCA in Wellington - I work full time Mon-Fri. - I am well traveled and recently spent 5 months in South and Central America and did some volunteering in Bolivia. - I am based in Auckland. - I am a non-smoker. - My friends would most likely describe me as diplomatic, loyal, responsible, honest, caring and calm.
I think house sitting is a wonderful concept and I look forward to meeting great people, (and animals!) along the way, and being able to help in whatever way I can.
Roanne was a fantastic house-sitter. Our cats were well looked after and my few plants were healthy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and look forward to Roanne sitting for us again in the future. Thanks again, the whole experience was an extremely positive one.

Roanne was able to help us out on such short notice in looking after our little cat. A lovely person, friendly and full of smiles, she looked after both our home and furchild Emerald without any hassles. We will definitely use Roanne again, and will most certainly recommend her services.

We have now had Roanne house (and cat) sit for us twice, and highly recommend her. On both occasions we returned to a clean and tidy house - and just as important - a happy cat.

Roanne house sat for us over a weekend in June and then for nearly a month over July and August, looking after our cat. We were very lucky to have her stay, she looked after the house and our cat very well and has always been very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend her.

Roanne was fantastic. I thoroughly recommend her. She is warm, friendly and trustworthy. I received updates, and came back to my home as I left it, with a few bonuses in the fridge. It shows that Roanne is an experienced sitter.

Roanne looked after my Ponsonby apartment for over a month and took care of my 12 year old Burmese cat Jeremy. Roanne sent me an update a few days in to let me know everything was going well & Jeremy was happy. That was great to hear. Jeremy had a couple of little toileting accidents and vomited once during the stay which can happen with him - Roanne handled all of this really well. When I arrived home the place was spotlessly clean & shiny and Jeremy was happy & relaxed. Thoughtfully, ...

Thoughtfully, Roanne had also left a few basic food items & fresh milk in the fridge meaning I didn't have to rush to the supermarket. I would highly recommend Roanne as a lovely, responsible house-sitter and excellent with cats!

We couldn't have asked for a better house and cat sitter than Roanne. I met her before our trip and felt very comfortable with her and confident that she would take care of our place like it was her own. She took great care of our cat who needed daily eye drops and a visit to the vet when her eye infection flared up. She kept in touch with us about our cat and when we returned home we were welcomed by a clean and tidy house. I can't recommend Roanne enough and we will certainly request her in ...

Roanne kindly took care of our place and our cat with no fuss at all. Made it very easy for us while we were away overseas and took a weight off our minds knowing things were left with a very capable, confident and reassuring housesitter.
The place was spotless on our return, and our cat very happy! Roanne, you're a star and would have you back in a flash when we next need someone. Thanks!
SARAH (St Johns , Mar 2016)
Roanne did a brilliant job looking after our house and more importantly, little cat. She was super easy to deal with and gave us updates during our time away so we knew everything was okay :) Our cat was totally fine upon our return so we are really pleased we chose Roanne and she chose us for his house sit. Would definitely use again! Cheers.
LEWIS (Beach Haven , Mar 2016)
Couldn't have been happier with Roanne as my house and cat sitter. Came home to two happy contented cats and a spotless house. Liked the way Roanne asked questions to clarify things from the start, gave me confidence that she respected my home and would be taking good care of everything while I was away.
Would definitely welcome her back again and highly recommend her to others. Jill
JILL (Te Atatu South , Feb 2016)
From the moment I met Roanne I knew she was the right housesitter for us. Everything was easy and effortless. Throughout her sit Roanne kept us updated on how our pets were doing and kept our minds at ease regarding some stormy weather that was happening in Auckland. We came home to a clean, tidy house with a very content cat. I highly recommend Roanne for any housesitting assignment! You will not be disappointed. Thanks Roanne. :)

Roanne did a good job sitting our house. Everything was as it should be on our return. Best of all she kept the house safe. The cats were totally spoilt!
NECK (19 Oban Rd Tauranga, Aug 2015)
We were very fortunate to have Roanne as a housesitter for our cat while we were away. She is caring, responsible, organized, neat and extremely reliable. Roanne sent us regular updates on how our cat was doing, took wonderful care of her and even left us some fresh fruit from a friend's farm. We would love for Roanne to come and stay again and have no hesitation in recommending her as a fantastic sitter.

With a house sitter looking after your pets, house and garden - you can really relax. Happy days.
