We are a fit and active, early retired, happily married couple from clean, green New Zealand.
We always cherished our many animal companions; now we have a strong desire to travel and care for your precious property and pets like they are our own. Your pet’s welfare and care of your home are our primary priorities. We believe in spending as much time as possible with your treasured pets, never leaving them alone for long periods - we do sightseeing and exploring between house sits - NOT during them....
Well organised with renowned Kiwi ingenuity to get things done, Greg is a sociable, practical DIY type; Wendy is outgoing, creative and we are both ingenious problem solvers. We are well educated professionals and take great pride in doing things to the best of our ability, this recognised by Greg’s Queen’s Birthday Honour in 2011 – Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM), for Outstanding Contribution to Conservation.
House sitting offers the chance to travel and visit locations we had not contemplated previously. We relish the opportunity to be immersed in daily life in other parts of the world, absorbing new cultures at a slower pace.
As experienced house and pet sitters in New Zealand and overseas, we know that entrusting your home and pets to others in your absence is a big step. You can be confident that we will use our proven experience and skills to care for your precious home and pets with the same care and respect as you do. We have lovingly nurtured a wide range of our own animal friends including dogs, cats, cage and aviary birds, fish, rabbits, pet lambs, hens and calves plus we have farming and horticulture backgrounds that embrace the attentive care of horses, cattle, sheep, alpacas, goats and donkeys. Our horticultural experience covers management of apples, kiwifruit, avocados, exotic fruits and cut flowers.
Being home owners and long-time rental property owners we use our experience of problem solving to remedy any unexpected events that may occur. We also have superior house maintenance & gardening skills (minor repairs, lawn mowing, cutting wood, pruning, painting etc.) and have no fear in trying something new and unexpected.
We also appreciate the importance of regular and detailed communication to ensure your complete peace of mind.

We look forward to hearing from you.
