My husband and I are active retired US citizens from Houston, Texas. I was an environmental scientist/consultant and my husband, Tony, was a CFO for a privately held company.
We are currently living on our sailboat and sailing around the world. We decided to take a year off sailing to spend additional time in NZ and to get some work done on our sailboat. We toured the south island using and enjoyed the experience tremendously. We did a housesit/ dogsit in Whangarei in August and really loved having a dog again. We are now looking for some housesitting opportunities during the next 6 months (February - June 2018) while our boat is being worked on in Whangarei. We have our own car so location is not an issue.
We have had several dogs ourselves and always keep our son's dog, Kaylee, whenever we are home in Houston. We miss having a dog around and would like to housesit with a dog to care for. Both my husband and I walk or run several days a week around the Whangarei Hatea Loop 4.2km walkway and would welcome dogs to walk with us.
We have several letters of reference and I can send those to you. We are very clean and tidy, non-smokers, and prefer a non-smoking house with good WiFi.
Thank you so much! We look forward to the opportunity to housesit for you.
