Trusted House Sitters Required Choose The Housesitting Company NZ for Kiwi House Sitters

12th April 2019

Remember the days when house sitting was a whole new concept?

“Jim, who’s going to be looking after your house when you go to Europe for 3 months?”

“Oh, some friend of my niece. I’m sure there won’t be any pool parties or broken vases, but I’ll lock them away just in case.”

“Good idea, Jim. Good. Idea.”

The reality was that although you might trust your friend’s (or niece’s) judgement, you were opening your doors to total strangers. The risks were high, and there was no guaranteeing that these people would look after your home and pets. Thankfully, a few years later, there is a safer way of finding trusted Kiwi house sitters in New Zealand — The Housesitting Company.

We have no hesitation in recommending The Housesitting Company after our excellent experience.

Kiwi House Sitters as a Doggy Day Care Alternative

The biggest advantage of getting Kiwi house sitters to look after your New Zealand property is that they are able to take care of your pets too!

Each house sitter registered on The Housesitting Company network has been interviewed and found to be real animal lovers. Getting a house sitter to dog watch or cat watch is a great alternative to dog kennels or catteries and, in most cases, cheaper.

If your dog is too young, you may not be able to put them in a dog kennel (due to immunisations etc.). On the other hand, if your dog is old and has a few health issues, the best place for them is to be at home where they are comfortable.

A house sitter from The Housesitting Company will be able to care for them and give them the required love and attention you would give them yourself.

Our Trusted Kiwi House Sitters Are Police Checked & Verified

We take security extremely seriously at The Housesitting Company. We understand the responsibility we have when homeowners entrust us with their house and beloved pets.

We verify each and every one of our Kiwi house sitters to be who they say they are and we require every house sitter to undergo and pass a New Zealand police check.

However, we don’t just stop there.

We insure our house sitters for public liability, so you aren’t left paying for a sitter’s mistake. Thankfully we have never had to use our insurance, but for your total peace of mind — it’s there just in case.

For me housesitting is like having a holiday. I enjoy meeting people, their pets and living in their fabulous homes. Over the year I have looked after chickens, parakeets, a mouse, dogs, fish and cats and I’ve enjoyed dog walking to get some exercise.

I currently flat, so housesitting allows me to get out and have my own space from time to time.
