Mark and I (Lesley) live full time on the road in our landrover/small motorhome. As X teachers we sold up and hit the road some 10 years ago. We spend our time travelling, completing small electrical jobs (our mobile business) and house sitting.

If we can we like to house sit during the school holidays as the roads, campsites and freedom camping spots are very busy then.

In the past we have had pets of our own and love walking so you can be guaranteed your pets will be well looked after and exercised.

We are young at heart (active), non smoking and reliable.

We highly recommend Leslie and Mark as the ultimate house sitters and we feel extremely at ease when they’re house sitting. They respect our home and we always return to a immaculately clean house as though we had just walked out, as is the pool The lawns and gardens are well cared for. Our cats every needs are met and don’t even know we have been away which is very reassuring. We will certainly use Leslie and Mark in the future as they have high standards are flexible, trustworthy and ... MORE

Thank you Amanda, your house and cats were so easy to care for. Please don't hesitate to contact us again if you need us.
Mark and Lesley are super nice people. We had no worries leaving our 2 elderly cats and 1 young cat with them. So wonderful to come home to happy animals and a lovely clean and tidy house. We will definitely ask them to house sit again for us.
DEBBIE (Whangaparāoa North Island, Aug 2022 - 3 weeks)
We had such a lovely house sit in your nice and warm home. The cats were so easy to care for and lovely to look after and the house is in a great location. Don't hesitate to contact us if you need us again.
Mark and Lesley did an excellent job of looking after our dog, Pippa. They were very good at keeping us informed and sending us photos on how well she was doing. We certainly felt confident leaving her with them. Upon our return, the house had been left neat and tidy, and all washing done. We are grateful for their care and therefore commend them to anyone looking for reliable petsitters.

Mark and Lesley were fantastic! They took great care of our fur babies. The house was very well cared for, I would definitely have them house sit again.
TORY (Cambridge North Island, Feb 2022 - 3 days)
We would definitely come back too, to look after the most gorgeous little dogs in the land. Very handy location for town too and Alexa is definitely a bonus.
Mark and Lesley were great house sitters they cared for our cats, house and pot plants while we were away 12 days. We came back to happy cats and safe and tidy home. Thanks for your care and great communications. Recommend them for future sits.
JEAN (Matamata North Island, Dec 2021 - 1 week 5 days)
Thank you for the great review Jean. The 5 cats were so easy to look after, all so calm and got on really well together. Your home is lovely and in a nice quiet area. Highly recommended.
We found Mark and Lesley relaxed and easily going. Their care of our animals was great and we would recommend them to others who are looking for a couple to respect the host's home and love their animals :)
ANTOINETTE (Mangakino North Island, Aug 2021 - 2 weeks)
Thank you for your positive post. Given it was the middle of winter and your garden was well overgrown maybe a N/A would of been more applicable for garden care unless you were looking for a gardener that is lol.
We asked Mark and Lesley to housesit our lifestyle block which included looking after beef stock, sheep, horse, chooks, cat and our dog. Also keeping an eye on our huge garden and pool. Mark and Lesley were rockstars, nothing was a problem, super easy to deal with. Everything was awesome when we got home, animals happy and garden still green. I would absolutely recommend them although that limits my chances of being able to have them back and I would definitely love to have them back ;)
SHEREE (Matamata North Island, Jan 2021 - 17 nights)
Lesley and Mark were fantastic! We arrived home to one very happy and relaxed yellow 'feathered child and a spotless home. Lesley had even washed the linen and it was hanging up to dry! I can highly recommend this lovely couple to take care of your fur / feathered babies and your home while you are away. You will have total peace of mind. Lesley and Mark, Thank you so much for taking such great care of Hyella, It's a relief to know that he was happy and safe. Until the next ... MORE
