Noela and Paul house sat for us for month (Apr/May 18). They are a nice couple who treat house sitting professionally and easily coped with our 'first time' worries. Our Border Collies bonded well and were sorry to see them go at the end of the sit. The chicken and garden both enjoyed the upgraded care in our absence, whilst the house was in immaculate condition. They are welcome back anytime and we would thoroughly recommend them as Sitters..
PETER (Pakaraka , Apr 2018)
Noela and Paul cared for our 20 acre property . They were required to shift and check stock ( 50 sheep and a few calves ) and care for chickens ducks and a cat. From first contact we were impressed . Noela contacted us at intervals prior to the house sit. They arrived prior to the time and ensured they understood what was required ( we were in drought conditions ) . We arrived home to healthy happy animals . The house felt as though professional cleaners had been through . A very ... MORE

I cannot recommend these sitters enough. Pets (dog, cat, tropical fish, guinea pig) were really well cared for and content (dog got two walks a day :-)). House was spotless (cleaner than we left it!). We got messages and pictures with updates throughout the sit. When we arrived home from holiday we found flowers in all the downstairs rooms and a pack of food for a plush breakfast. So awesome!
MICHELLE (Plimmerton North Island, Jan 2020 - 2 weeks 1 day)
This was our first time having house sitters. It couldn't have gone smother. We got home to very happy animals and the house looked like cleaners had been in. We couldn't recommend Paul and Noela highly enough and hope to be able to use them again.
NEV AND JEN (Christchurch South Island, Dec 2019 - 3 days)
Dream sitters.House immaculate ,flowers in vases, meal cooked on our return but best of all our elderly dog happy & well cared for.Would recommend Noela & Paul unreservedly.
DIANA (Nelson South Island, Nov 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
Noela and Paul are amazing. I can't speak highly enough of them. We were blown away by their care, communication, generosity, and kindness. Our precious ragdoll cat was completely relaxed and happy on our return - we've never seen him like that. The house was immaculate and Noela and Paul were kind enough to leave us a meal and lots of tasty treats. The garden and all my container plants were well looked after - far more than I expected. Noela and Paul went above and beyond the call of ... MORE
ELEANOR (Frome England, Aug 2019 - 2 weeks 1 day) From House Sitters UK
Noela and Paul came to meet us before the sit, and to go for a walk with Bramble. They gave us great confidence & allowed us to go away feeling happy that our pets would be safe and well cared for. We had regular updates with photos and came home to a clean and tidy house. They also left us flowers, fruit, and a curry, which was delicious. Noela and Paul are genuine and lovely people, and we feel honoured to have had them sit for us. I highly recommend them to others.
RHIANNON (KIDDERMINSTER England, Aug 2019 - 1 week) From House Sitters UK
Have just returned from a lovely relaxing break in Madeira, leaving our three much loved rescue dogs and our home in the care of Noela and Paul. Although are dogs are generally well behaved, looking after three is no mean feat, and we returned home to three chilled and happy dogs. Our house was immaculate with lovely touches ...a curry ready in the fridge, fresh flowers and a full fruit bowl. Noela and Paul kept in touch with us while we were away. Noela and Paul came early so we could give ... MORE
ANNE (Blaenau Ffestiniog Wales, Apr 2019 - 1 week) From House Sitters UK
I feel like we hit the 'jackpot' after meeting Noella and Paul! They are exceptionally caring and generous people, who are dedicated 100% to their house and pet sits. Our dogs sulked once they left. We came home to a beautifully clean house, even fresh flowers replaced and a homemade curry awaiting us, after a 24 hour journey home. Communication was perfect, and our pets were so well looked after. I would not doubt to wholeheartedly recommend them to look after your home and pets. We want ... MORE
SARAH (Whitehaven , Mar 2019) From House Sitters UK
Noela and Paul were great housesitters and looked after everything beautifully. Even came home to a cooked meal and Noela had very kindly planted some new vegies for us and left a treat for the kids. Animals were well taken care off. Would love to have them back anytime
KAREN (Tamahere North Island, Jan 2019 - 1 week)
Noela and Paul are the house sitters from heaven! They are lovely people and communication was easy. Our cats and chickens were well cared for and relaxed. Our house was immaculate when we returned and they did heaps of extras off their own bat which was most appreciated. They are very experienced and we recommend them to anyone.
VANESSA (Albany North Island, Dec 2018 - 1 week)

Both the dogs looked fantastic an happy when we came home, the grounds were freshly mowed, house was tidy an clean an to top it off a lovely dinner prepared for us. Regular updates an photos of our dogs, great company would love to have these guys back again
DEBBIE (Whakatane North Island, Dec 2018 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating We loved having Noela and Paul house sit for us. They were very comfortable with our 2 labradoodle puppies and our older cats. It was very evident that their primary focus were the animals which made our vacation worry free. It was a pleasure to be able to spend time with them before we left so they got to know more about us and the animals. We also got to know them better and enjoyed all their stories of their adventures. We would definitely welcome them back to our home . Maybe when the ... MORE
JANET ( Ontario, Nov 2018 - 3 weeks) From House Sitters Canada
Noella & Paul did a great job looking after our property and 'farmily' for approx. 5 days. Communication was good - we Skyped prior which was really helpful! They have a very good understanding of animals and common sense approach to everything. We appreciated that they were keen to stick to routines for the pets' sake and seemed to truly love animals. We would recommend them. Glad to have been part of their adventure!
MARGARET (Marton North Island, Mar 2018 - 6 days)
Having strangers looking after your property and dearly loved animals was something we were quite nervous about, yet reading all the references that Noela and Paul had definitely made the decision easier. Yet of course we were still a bit nervous about it all. We needn't have worried. Noela and Paul are Gods in our book. They were absolutely amazing! We'd never left the dogs, cats, chooks and horse for so long before. They sent us daily updates and photos. When we returned the dogs weren't even ... MORE
JENNY BUCKLEY (Tauwhare, Cambridge , Feb 2018 - 2 weeks)
Amazing housesitters - the animals adored them and didn't even seem to know that we weren't there. We loved spending time with them. So nice to come home to a happy house with extremely happy animals. Welcome back anytime.
JULIETTE (Washdyke South Island, Dec 2017 - 3 days)
Noela and Paul were brilliant house sitters the cats were very happy,they looked after the house and garden even cut the grass. Would definitely recommend them.
JOHN (Norwich , Oct 2017) From House Sitters UK
Noela and Paul were very organised, prompt with communication and clear on details. The dogs were settled on our return, always a sign of a good sit and the house and garden were very clean and tidy. Recommend highly.
JOHN (Hinckley England, Sep 2017 - 1 week 2 days) From House Sitters UK
We would thoroughly recommend Noela & Paul for peace of mind for your home and pets whilst you are away. They looked after our 'special' cat, 5 hens, tiddlers, home and garden for 10 days in early June. Great communication before the sit, answered questions and provided details promptly which reassured us everything would be in good hands. Not phased by an untimely sick 'chick' who needed a lot of attention and was handled in a practical and caring manner. Happy to indulge our wild bird feeding ... MORE
CLAIRE & CHRIS. (Cambridge England, Aug 2017 - 1 week 3 days) From House Sitters UK
Noela and Paul did a three week housesit for us and took great care of all our pets and the house. We were able to completely relax away from home knowing that we had two very capable people in charge of things back home! Many thanks to them both and we have no hesitation in strongly recommending them as housesitters.
KATE (CHARD England, Aug 2017 - 2 weeks 5 days) From House Sitters UK
what can we say. Perfect. All the animals we happy and relaxed, Molly was sad to see them go. The house was spotless and the little extra touches made all the difference. Pual that was a great green curry!
BRIAN (Bognor Regis England, Jul 2017 - 1 week 1 day) From House Sitters UK
No rating Noela and Paul sat for us, our two labs, chickens and an aged cat and we are delighted to give the following endorsement. They are a perfect couple for anyone to have in their house, totally trustworthy, cheerful and brilliant with our animals. The house was cleaner when we returned than when we left with grass cut and many nice touches to welcome us home. Dogs loved them and we were kept informed throughout. We could not have asked for any more and are very happy to award them the highest ... MORE
ANNE (Tivetshall St Margaret England, Jun 2017 - 1 week 2 days) From House Sitters UK
Noela and Paul house sat for us earlier this month, looking after our cats, house and gardens while we were away. A lovely friendly couple, sending daily updates and leaving 2 happy cats and a lovely clean house. Paul even mowed the lawns!! Would highly recommend this couple for any house sit and they are welcome back any time! Many thanks again Noela & Paul and happy travels. Marse
MARCIA (Havelock North North Island, Feb 2017 - 5 days)
Noela and Paul were wonderful sitters. The animals loved them and they went the extra mile. What a lovely surprise to find a gift and flowers when we got home. Paul the curry was wonderful thank you both so much Chris and Roxanne
ROXANNE (Dargaville North Island, Oct 2016 - 1 week 2 days)
Noela and Paul were amazing. They left the place in better condition then when they arrived. They are delightful kind people who took amazing care of our pets and our property. We would welcome them back in a hearbeat. Thank you so much and enjoy your ongoing adventures.
LUKE & PIP (Kenmore QLD, Apr 2016 - 4 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Noela and Paul looked after our home and much loved dog Rosie and 2 chooks for a month while we were away. They began with a 'meet n greet' visit before we left, a great way to introduce themselves not only to us but our dog. Immediately we felt comfortable with these two caring for our property, and sure enough they were spectacular! Not for a moment did we feel uncertain about their abilities and honesty. While we were away we received texts every few days with updates, their communication ... MORE
