65, Retired

ooking for Housesitters in 2020? WE'RE BACK full time after a short break from housesitting.

We have many, many years of experience housesitting - back to the days when we were asked to "house-mind". We are now professional housesitters in New Zealand/Australia and overseas, and when the opportunity arises we would like to housesit for YOU!

Both of us are retirees, we love to see new places and meet different people. We are multicultural in our outlook, diverse in our understanding of how people live and aware of how important TRUST is when housesitting homes and family pets. We can guarantee an extremely high standard of care and responsibility taken for your life's assets and we have an abundance of love and compassion for God's earthly creatures that we may have the privilege of looking after.

We have lived overseas as Volunteers in third world countries and are now back in New Zealand. We know how to "go without" and the difference between "wants" and "needs". We live simply with a focus on a healthy diet (we do not smoke, drink alcohol or do drugs), an active lifestyle and incorporate a happy, positive outlook on life.

We're a very competent couple in times of crisis, with level heads, careful decision makers, and fully capable of looking after a home, property and any household pets. We've had wide ranging experiences in building and maintaining our own homes in the past and in caring and loving our own extensive range of pets. Therefore, your house and pets would be in the BEST OF HANDS for those times when you need people like us to help you out.

We have current Police checks, and written or verbal references of past housesitting are available upon request. Feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email. We can also communicate via FaceTime and What'sApp.

Chris and Glen were absolutely marvellous with house, garden care and especially becoming new slaves to our very domesticated 18 year old cat. We recommend them highly and hope they will be available again in November when we are away for 3 weeks

More than anyone we have ever had pet/house sit for us, Chris and Glenn made us feel confident that everything was being taken care of. They communicated regularly and sent photos of our dog Faith. They were very interested to know about her plus they seemed to understand and cared about her from the start. Our garden and pot plants were thriving when we returned home and they left our whole house tidy and spotless. We would welcome Chris and Glenn back anytime to care for Faith and our ... MORE

Chris and Glenn are our first ever Kiwi House sitters and we cannot thank Chris and Glenn enough for looking after our fur babies and home so beautifully. Our 2 cats are elderly and needed medication twice daily. Chris and Glenn kept us up to date regularly on their health. They went the extra mile! Going to the vet for more medication, shopping for special food when the cats where not eating the food we left. Offering to clean the pool and leaving the house immaculately clean and even ... MORE

I can highly recommend Chris and Glenn to take care of your Home garden and pets . It was a very real welcome home into my special space . I feel very lucky to have had them take so much care and leave it so spotless. I wish them all the best in there search as house sitters.

Thank you Sandra for your lovely review of us. We had such a wonderful time housesitting for you and thoroughly enjoyed looking after Lee, Jo and Bluiy (2 sheep & one goat) as well as the four hens, goldfish and wild birds. Your home became "our" home for the week which we appreciated very much. ... MORE
