The Veggie Couple

Lawyer / Music Producer / Writer

Deli Assistant / Content Creator / Crafter

We care about animal rights, mental health, and the environment. Whenever there is a chance before us, we love getting close to animals. As a mature and responsible couple, we know how to care for your home as if it were our own and ensure your companion animals receive all the love and attention they need. Maxx grew up with a few small doggies (Summer loves them so much), while Summer always wants to become a pet owner one day. For us, housesitting is the best way to meet new animal friends, experience different lifestyles, and connect with locals. We are ready to provide your little family members with love, cuddling, and exercise whenever necessary!

Background about us:

In 2019, we spent a year in New Zealand, working and travelling in various parts of this beautiful country. During our time as WWOOFers, we stayed with a family in Kumeroa for a week, assisting them with gardening and caring for their dogs and a cow. Additionally, we spent a year in Canada, studying and working, and have stayed in numerous places worldwide with consistently positive reviews on Airbnb. Now we are planning to stay in New Zealand for the next few years!

As a couple, we consistently work as a team on our shared projects. One of our previous endeavours includes managing an Instagram page where we shared our journey as vegetarians and promoted meat-free diets. Currently, we run a YouTube channel producing original guided meditations. These experiences enhanced our ability to work seamlessly as a team, allowing us to flexibly cater to different needs and situations, using our distinct strengths and perspectives. Rest assured, your home and pets will be in good hands.

*By the way, Maxx is a lawyer giving advice remotely to clients based in Hong Kong while taking a break from his Master's Degree in Wellington. Summer is busy drawing for our YouTube channel and diving into her soy wax candles project. We are currently staying in Lower Hutt.

Maxx & Summer did an amazing job looking after our burm boys and house - keeping us updated daily with messages & pics. Appreciate the care and love you gave them, and felt so reassured knowing they were in safe hands. Came home to an immaculate house and very happy babies. Would happily recommend Maxx & Summer to house/pet sit and look forward to hopefully having them back at some stage!

Maxx and Summer looked after our house and cat over a long weekend. Everything was clean and tidy when we got home. The cat had no complaints either! Would happily have them to house sit for us again.
JOANNA (Lower Hutt North Island, Mar 2024 - 4 nights)
Maxx & Summer came and met with us before we went away and they were so lovely and caring and asked all the right questions. Then they kept us updated while we were away as to how Bella was getting on, they left lovely little notes about things at the house and even had washed their sheets and re-made the bed. Lovely couple that I would easily have housesit for us again. Nicky & Ross

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
