We care like you would
Retired couple with no time scales or current commitments we are available for house sitting / pet minding. Fit and active we intersperse travelling overseas while we are still able to with time in NZ. We are a bit adventurous and have completed a number of driving 'holidays' in the past 5 years inc circumnavigating Australia in an RV, Siberia to London by Landcruiser, South America and two long road trips in the USA. Home in NZ we take the opportunities offered by Kiwi Housesitters to travel around New Zealand and love the pet contact. We have a small 'home base' in Auckland plus a fully kitted out motor home which gives us the flexibility to lock up and leave. Family including Mum (97) live in the Aucklaind area but also quite happy to travel outside Auckland. Housekeeping style described by wag of brother in law as verging on the 'OCD'. Honest and reliable, all our completed housesits have resulted in positive appraisals. Love the pet contact and remember their names better than their owners From Buddy (Doberman) who loved his walks, Murphy (Shitzu cross) who just loved company and of course the 'princesses' (Burmese) Daphne & Rose where it was love at first paw.. We 'promise' to take care of your pets as you would. Prior to retirement we were business owners in Auckland and our daughters and only grandchild live overseas (Australia & France) which 'feeds' our travel bug Availability as per provided calendar. No specific plans for 2020 and would look at short or longer sits anywhere in the North Island. Look forward to hearing from you - happy for you to call us.

Brian & Enid are a super couple. Casper was clearly well looked after and became quite attached to Enid, we hope they will look after him again sometime. Very happy that they agreed to housesit for us and highly recommend them.
JOHN & SANDIE (Mangawhai , May 2018)
Enid and Brian were great house sitters. They were very easy to communicate with and happy to discuss things that needed to be done. They kept in regular email contact while we were away and dropped us off and picked us up from the airport. We came home to a lovely clean house, a tidy garden and food in the fridge. We would recommend them and use them again.

Would highly recommend Enid and Brian. Our house and dog was very well looked after and Enid even voluntarily tidied our drawers and cupboards!! A nice finishing touch was restocking our fridge making it a pleasure to come home to. Would definitely use them again.

Enid and Brian were perfect house-sitters and looked after my home and 2 precious cats as if it was their own. I was kept up-to-date over my holiday via photos of cats and all went smoothly. They are lovely caring and very competent people.
