Riches Have Wheels

40, Professional writer and photographer

Hi! We are Jackie and Gareth and we are professional travel/food writers, photographers and film makers. We have been living on the road for three and a half years and are well known in the motorhoming community. We have travelled from one end of this beautiful country to the other and are happy to house and pet sit anywhere! We work from home, so you can relax knowing that we are always around to take care of and keep an eye on your property and beloved pets. We adore all animals but Gareth particularly loves cats! We love the quiet life and have excellent references from both humans and their four-legged and winged friends!

You can also check out our FB page to see more from our happy pets and owners. Link available on request.

If you are looking for peace of mind while you are away, look no further than Jackie & Gareth. Lola our dog and Ella our crazy cat were more than well look after, I would say they were probably even loved in our absence. Came home from a week in the South Island to find a tidy house with well cared for animals. I can definitely highly recommend these guys to take care of both your house and your animals (or in our case our fur babies). This was Jackie & Gareth's first house sit for us as ... MORE

Jackie and Gareth house sat for me for 5 days. They looked after my 2 small dogs, one of who is pretty full on! They also looked after my Cockateil, Charlie. Jackie and Gareth were amazing house sitters. Their consistent and reliable communication put me at ease. They took impeccable care of the animals, in particular their care of Charlie and I came home to a house that was immaculately tidy—- cleaner than when I left it!! They also tended to watering my plants over a particularly hot ... MORE

super lovely couple,easy going and easy to get on with, cannot recommend them highly enough, unless that means they are busy when we need house sitters again :D The house was very clean when we got home which was a lovely surprise and as we were coming home early hours bed made up with fresh linen meaning we could just fall into it.. Up to date information left about the animals and house and follow up text messages. As said would highly recommend

Jackie &Gareth are awesome!! You are never left wondering how your special hairy child is doing. They keep in touch and send detailed reports; just like reading a diary. They cared for our baby and home as if they were their own. House was immaculate when we returned and our specual boy was in excellent condition and very happy which was most important. Thank you so much!!

Jackie & Gareth were fantastic! I came home to a clean tidy house & happy animals. Thanks for restoring my confidence in opening up my home to people. Looking forward to having you back again!

Jackie and Gareth were the first housesitters we had ever used from this website and we couldn't have asked for better people to look after our animals and our property. They did such a great job! We have a very active and strong young dog as well as a moody cat and two constantly hungry donkeys and they won them all over - our dog didn't want them to go! Our house was probably cleaner than when we left and they even fixed stuff for us that had been broken for a while :) Jackie and Gareth ... MORE
