Taking care of your home, property, animals and pets is the most rewarding service we can offer. Large or small: we have experience in minding residential houses with (vegetable) gardens to rural properties around the world!

We, Marianne and Erwin, have references through other housesit networks which are captured in one word document on this page and also have a police check that we can send on request.

As property owners ourselves it will be our pleasure to give you peace of mind and treat your home and loved pets as our own. We are a Dutch couple and Australian permanent residents in our early fifties who sold their belongings in Australia to travel and to find our next purpose in life: perhaps it is full-time housesitting!

After caring for a hobby farm in Nova Scotia, Canada and a 10 months sit at a homestead (with guest facilities) on a 400 acres nature reserve in the jungle of North Argentina, we are now taking care of a property of 7 acres in a small beach town on the South Island of New Zealand for 7 months and a home with rental property in Oamaru until 16 December 2018. Followed by 2 other sits in Kakanui until mid March 2019.

From early April to the end of August 2019 we will take care of a property in Neerim Sth, VIC. Followed by a 6 week sit in Thailand from 18 October, lucky us!

So first availability is 1 September to 10 October 2019.

We seek clean properties in a quiet and nature environment, country areas or the quieter city suburbs. We love all animals and have cared for large dogs, horses, cats, cows, chickens and ducks. Have used ride-on-mowers, weeding devices and spraying, have cleaned stables and managed veggie gardens and accommodation (Air BnB).

Love to hear from you soon how we can be of help!
