The Perfect Pair

31, Teacher

35, Working from home Analyst

We are a non-smoking, organised, tidy, caring, and trustworthy professionals that are also homeowners. We understand the trust you put into house sitters and the responsibility and work required to manage a home.

A few years ago we lost our dog (Labrador x Golden Retriever) to old age and miss cuddling and walking him. We also have both had cats growing up and love their unique personalities. We just love all animals.

We both are very physically fit and are able to take dogs on long walks, garden, and clean the house. We know is required of us to look after most animals and are comfortable doing so.

We will also ensure that your home is kept safe, plants are cared for, and it is kept extremely tidy. We take great pride in that.

If you appoint us as house sitters we promise you will not be let down and we can provide references to attest to this upon request or you can read our positive reviews.

Look forward to hearing from you and hopefully taking care of your home. Allowances may be added but will be discussed before confirming sits.

Lauren and Manvir

we loved Lauren and Manny, the most important thing for us was our fur babies and they loved them as much as we do. We got photos and updates while on our holiday. The house was in perfect condition on our return.

Very friendly and lovely couple, and in general the housesit was fine, with no damage. Slightly disappointed the house was not as clean on my return as it was when handed over; in particular the kitchen area left a lot to be desired. There was clear communication about my return date and time, so don’t really know why Manny was rushing around doing the cleaning and packing up 3 hours after my scheduled return time. Definitely not their fault that my ‘phantom’ nervous cat did not show face for ... MORE

Once again Lauren and Manvir have house sat for us taking great care of our cat Addie and watered and kept the pot plants alive - Good job. Great to have built up a great relationship

Lauren and Manny did a great job looking after Charlie and our house. We came home to the house being just as we left it and our dog well cared for. I would be happy for them to house sit again.

Lauren and Manny are more than welcome to house sit for us again. Great communication and photos sent of our animals which was lovely. Came home to a clean, tidy house. Highly recommend them to others in the future

Lauren and Mannie were fantastic house and pet sitters! They were very sweet with our dog and took her on lots of walks and kept in regular contact with us while we were away. They kept great care of our house and it was very tidy when we got home. We would definitely recommend them to others - they are both lovely people to have in your home.

It was such a delight to have Lauren and Manny look after our home and pets. They send us frequent updates and left the home spotless and the cats happy and content. I would not hesitate to recommend them. They're an absolutely lovely couple and we would love to have them sit for us again.
ELSIE (Helensville North Island, Jun 2022 - 3 days)
Lauren and Manvir were excellent with our dog. We received messages everyday letting us know how Roo was getting on and what they had been upto. Left the house clean and tidy. Would highly recommend them and use them again in the future.
ASHLEIGH (Te Awamutu North Island, Jun 2022 - 3 days)
Lauren and Manvir looked after our animals and house for the weekend at very short notice. Great on the communication front. The place was left super clean and all the animals were fed, watered and loved. Especially Louie our dog ❤️ I would recommend Lauren and Manvir and will be having them back again. Thank you both.
SHARON (Muriwai Beach North Island, May 2022 - 2 nights/2 days)
Loved having Lauren and Manvir house sit and care for our animals while we were overseas. They sent regular photos of their adventures with the dogs and updates of our other animals which put my mind to ease. They looked after all of our indoor plants and we returned home to such a clean tidy house. They had even gone out of their way and done all our recycling for us. Would love to have Lauren and Manvir to stay anytime, Beau and Ardie are missing their adventures!
