Trustworthy and Caring Housesitter

55, Hospitality

Hi I am Joanne I have been housesitting for over three and a half years now and I absolutely love it. I have had the privilege of looking after some special animals large and small, also house and gardens are a joy to look after as you well see in the photos I have provided. I am extremely house proud. I have been living in Australia for the last 20 years and have decided to move back here to my beloved New Zealand and continue my housesitting assignments here. I have some wonderful references, which I have transferred from my Aussie House Sitter site to the Kiwi House Sitters I do hope you enjoy reading them. I have National and International police checks available. Hope to meet soon. Regards.

No rating Jo is a very good house sitter who communicated regularly with photos of our crazy animals and conversation while we were away, keeping us well informed. Lovely to return to a tidy garden, trimmed hedge and a clean home with essentials in the fridge! Jo is honest, trustworthy and I would be happy to recommend her.

Jo was awesome. I couldn't ask for a more considerate, caring and communicative house sitter. She left my house in beautiful condition and most importantly cared wonderfully for my pedigree Burmese cat who like all of her breed crave human company and interaction. I would have her back again in a jiffy!

Joanne was a delightful house sitter. She is a very experienced house sitter and was great to communicate with before, during and after her 5 week house sit for us. We have 2 older cats, a big garden and many pot plants. Joanne quickly bonded with our fur children and we really appreciated her lovely text updates with photos showing all was well at home. Everything was perfect when we got home, clean, tidy and relaxed, happy fur children. Joanne also kindly and thoughtfully made up our bed ... MORE

Joanne was an absolute delight. She came around to see us before she was sitting for our two chihuahua's, which made us feel so comfortable leaving our fur babies and our home for the first time. Updates with photos and communication morning and night gave us a totally stress free holiday. She took the dogs for a walk every day, knowing our older chihuahua couldn't walk, she walked her in a pram. House was beautiful and tidy with fresh linen on the spare bed on our return.

We were really happy with Jo. She was an excellent communicator, right from when we first made contact until after our house sit (even sending a message to make sure we had arrived home safe & sound). We were away for nearly 5 weeks and had no worries at all during that time. Jo sent us a couple of updates during our time away and we really appreciated receiving a couple of photos of our 2 babies. The house was clean and tidy when we returned and Jo had even purchased some milk for us, plus ... MORE

Jo, was fantastic. This was our first time using a house sitting site and we can't stop telling people how fantastic it was. Not only did Joe take great care of the house and our fur baby Saph she went above and beyond to make our return home stress free. We would defiantly look to have Jo return on our next trip.

Jo was fantastic we felt so comfortable with her from our first meeting, as it was the first time we had used this site we were a bit apprehensive but Jo made us feel very comfortable she loved our dogs Pepper & Pearl and they loved her, we came home to happy,healthy dogs and a beautifully clean and tidy house. We will diffinately be trying to get Jo back again next year for a sit. Many Thanks Jo for making our time away so stress free. Scott & Karen
