Zara and Alex Taulelei

37, Filmdirector

58, Sailor

Dear houseowners,

we are a married couple. Alex is a sailing samoan kiwi and Zara a filmmaker and photographer from Germany. We are well travelled and just relocated back to NZ. We have house and pet sitting references from South America, Australia and NZ. We both absolutely love animals and owned dogs and cats in the past.
We have a variety of skills having worked the last 3 yrs throughout South America on farms, building eco and permaculture projects.
Alex is an Anthropologist from VIC Uni and his passion is sailing throughout the Pacific reviving traditional Vaka sailing with the Samoan Voyaging Society.
We have a lot of gardening experience, Alex had a mulching business, and spend a number of years on the family plantations in Samoa. We love to work on and with the land.

We have been meditating for a number of years and follow a buddhist practise, so we don't drink or smoke.
We keep the space around us very clean, tidy and peaceful.

I thoroughly recommend Zara and Alex to look after your house. We had complete confidence in them caring for our house and most importantly our pets. Zara and Alex are lovely kind people and I hope they can stay here again, we can't thank them enough.

Alex and Zara were a delight. They took great care of the house and the cat. They initiated a task around the house that required a fine standard of craftsmanship. Excellent communications. I would not hesitate to recommend them or to invite them back again.

Couldn't have asked for better house sitters. Zara and Alex are a wonderful easy to deal with. We have had them sit for us twice now and our animals seem disappointed when we return! They are just brilliant with them. Highly recommend. Thank you guys.

Safe house!

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