Retired caring couple. Vaccinated



My husband and I are a active retired couple that live in our own home in Hawera South Taranaki and have been self employed most of our working lives. Over the last 15 years we have owned a domestic cleaning business in Auckland and through this work we have been trusted with peoples homes and pets. We love animals and have had many different pets over our lifetime. Arthur and I enjoy visiting new places and meeting people and their pets. We have done housesitting in the past for our clients and have always said when we retire we would like to take this up again . We are looking forward to new adventures now that we have time. Arthur and I are quiet, clean, tidy and respectful of people's property, always leaving the owners home as we have found it.!

This was the second time we had Joyce and Arthur sit our lifestyle block and dog, so check out our earlier review, all the same comments apply!. Absolutely excellent sitters, pet minders and people as well. We knew it would be good when our normally car-shy dog jumped into their car even before they'd got out.

Nothing was too much trouble and they sent us photos and regular updates on our wee fellow's well-being. The house was immaculate when we returned with the ... MORE

I thouroughly recommend Joyce & Arthur. They are 100% trustworthy & reliable. They went way beyond the call of duty in terms of how they looked after our dog & care & attention of the house. It was looking cleaner & nicer that when we left! They are great at keeping in touch. I can't wait to get them back!
