North Island: Auckland (Auckland, Auckland - North, North Shore City, Rodney, Waitakere), Northland
60, Semi Retired
I am a mature age, non-smoker and I live a healthy lifestyle in the Far North of NZ, where I own a comfortable off-grid bushland retreat home.
I have been a home and property owner in both Australia and NZ for over 35 years. I work from home a lot and so I can be around your pets and I will need good mobile reception and internet
I have experience handling most animals: horses, dogs, cats, birds, sheep, chooks etc and have good common sense.
I'm considerate, clean and tidy and I especially appreciate beautiful surroundings without toxic chemicals or too much ellectro-pollution!
I seem to appeal to cats especially, as most people I visit comment that their animals take very quickly to me. One friend's cat even brought the 'toy fish' to my bedroom door several times, which is apparently a rare and auspicious honour!
I am sometimes available for short sits on the north side of Auckland, where I need some week days included in the time. I welcome the opportunity to meet with well matched house owners, to discuss caring for your home and dear friends in your absence. I have transport and can be flexible with dates and times, often last minute too.
Gigi did a fantastic job of looking after both my cat Jake and my home. I was overseas when she arrived. She kept in contact with my friend who was letting her in and the whole process went really smoothly. The house was spotless on my return home, Jake happy and a lovely new casserole dish was sitting on my stove.

Gigi did a wonderful job of looking after our house and our cat. Her communication was excellent so we had lots of peace of mind that everything was well looked after while we were away.

Gigi was a fantastic housesitter who left the house super clean and tidy. The pets were well loved and cared for. Her communication was perfect throughout. Gigi is a generous soul and we'd welcome her back anytime.

Gigi was very straight forward to deal with from the beginning, and I knew I would have a great sitter. When I came home after 3 weeks away my home was clean and tidy, and had a lovely clarity. I would highly recommend Gigi to anyone looking for a reliable, respectful, and considerate house sitter. It was a pleasure arriving home. Thank you so much Gigi

Gigi looked after our house, garden and pets over our summer holiday. She was very respectful of our home environment and we could tell the animals had had plenty of attention in our absence. Our house was left very tidy in fact she had even left fresh flowers which was lovely to come home to. We'd love to have Gigi back anytime.

Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
