Sherran & Hubert

Retired Nurse

Retired farmhand, Greenkeeper, Groundsman/Caretaker.

We are an active energetic retired couple who are currently touring the country in our caravan and have a 15 yr old son who tours with us. Currently, Hubert is helping on my older sons farm, so mostly it is our animal loving 15yr old and myself that love to housesit Both of us have had farming backgrounds, which inevitably led us to buy our own lifestyle block where we kept horses, dogs, cats pigs, sheep and chooks, house cow and calf raising. We also grew our own vegetables and fruits. We would love to look after your house, pets, garden while you are away and would treat your home and pets as our own, giving the very best care, Honest, reliable and Non Smokers! We are COVID vaccinated

Our home was in good hands with Sherran and Herb and we enjoyed coming home to a clean and tidy house. Our 2 dogs were looked after very well. They are are often wary of strangers, but by the time we returned, they seemed to have bonded so well with Sherran, Herb and Oti that they pined for a few days after they had gone! We would highly recommend them as housesitters.

Sherran and Oti were excellent house-sitters. Sherran was a good communicator right from the start and she kept in touch over the week while we were away. The animals were all happy and well-looked after and the house was super clean when we got back, Sherran had even washed the sheets and hung them out to dry! We would be more than happy to have them house-sit for us again and would highly recommend them. Thanks team!!

I was very pleased with Sherran. She came at very short notice and did an excellent job of looking after my place, especially the care of my two dogs. I will be happy to have her come back again.

Sherran and Herb did a wonderful job looking after our house and farm and all the animals. The house was spotless when we came home and everything was looking great. We really appreciate that we can leave our farm knowing it's in such great hands. We highly recommend this couple
DAVE & SHERRYL (Opaki North Island, Dec 2019 - 10 days)
Sherran, Herb, and Oti took on the task of housesitting for us for 3 weeks while we were in Europe, and looked after our 4 babies. Each of our dogs has their own personalities and quirks, but they all got on like a house on fire. Communication was open, and we came home to a tidy house, and 4 very well looked after pooches. We would not hesitate to recommend these lovely people for any upcoming sits, and would definitely use them again. Storm, Romeo, Alaska and Jax miss you guys Cheers, The ... MORE

Great service looking after our block, 3 dogs, 2 cats and 4 horses while we were away for 3 1/2 weeks. Dogs well pampered. Great communication and updates. Lovely people and so easy to deal with. Thank you. :-D
HYWEL (Matangi North Island, Jul 2019 - 23 days)
It was wonderful to have Sherran and Hubert in our home while we were away overseas for 6 weeks. We returned to a very tidy house and property which made our return so much better. As important was that our dog, Max, was very content and had obviously received a lot of attention. We extend our sincere thanks to Sherran, Hubert and Otira for their care of our home and Max.

Sherran and Herb and Otira were perfect sitters. They took everything in their stride and seemed to enjoy our place. Herb even mowed the lawns. Lovely people who looked after our place like it was their own.
MARGIE (Port Levy South Island, Mar 2019 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Sherran, Herb and Oti looked after our complicated household while we were away for a week. We have two dogs, a cat, chickens, horses and fish all with their own schedule and special needs and none of it fazed them at all. Sherran communicated with us often while we were away which made us feel very secure in the knowledge that all our pampered pets were in the best hands possible, in fact I am not sure the dogs were all that pleased to see that it was us returning and not Sherran, Herb and ...

Sherran, Hubert and Otira, House sat for us for 1 week. We found them willing and flexible to accommodate the various needs of our many pets and to shift our cattle for us. They were well set up with their own caravan accommodation and experienced in the practicalities of house sitting. They left our home clean and tidy. Thankyou Sherran, Hubert and Otira. Would recommend you to others.

Awesome house sitters! couldnt have been better. We left on our holiday with the feeling that our house is in safe hands. When we returned, the house was spotless. Thanks again for looking after our house while we were away. Would highly recommend.
CLAIRE (Tawa North Island, Dec 2018 - 4 weeks)
Sherran, Herb and Oti are really lovely people and did an amasing job of housesitting for us over Labour Weekend. Our animals were all well cared for and everythinbg was just great when we returned. Highly recommend.
CHRIS AND FRANCES (Rural North Island, Oct 2018 - 4 days)
We are very happy to recommend Sherran Herb and Otira. They took great care of our precious labradors including Lotty who is 14 and a little demanding, plus goats and chickens. We returned to a beautifully clean house, freshly made beds and happy pets, they even left milk and a cheese and crackers as they knew my husband was arriving home after a long haul flight. Would be very happy for them to house sit for us again.
SARA (Pyes Pa North Island, Sep 2018 - 2 weeks 5 days)
We were very pleased on our return from our holiday how are animals and home were looked after. Our home was left spotless and the animals very happy. We kept in regular contact with Sherran, no problems arose. We would not hesitate to call on Sherran again. It made having a holiday possible again. Thankyou.
