Welcome to this home-sit/house-sitter site.
Be assured you will be dealing with the ‘best house sitter’ available and at the best price.
Who am I?
I’m a corporate professional, content writer as well as an aspiring entrepreneur.
I’ve been house sitter on and off for around 20 years, in between stints overseas. At the moment I spend about three months out of the country so house-sitting whilst here in New Zealand makes the transitions workable.
My references are impeccable and you may contact some on request. Additionally, every year through the work I am involved with I have to pass a police check and the like – that information can also be made available.
A little more about me
Immaculate is probably the best word that describes me, I’m so clean and tidy it isn’t funny! Generally people are quite surprised that their home is in such great condition, on their return.
Proud uncle of 10 nieces, two nephews and father to a darling 11 year old daughter who lives overseas.
I am a genuine animal lover and are considerate of my surroundings. I am not one of those house-sitters that need to open every draw and cupboard in your home just to have a nosey or use every appliance just because it’s there.
House Sitter – Best Pricing
There are nominal costs associated with house-sitting. I am not in it for the money, as such the following is well below what others charge.
- $5 per day – no pets
- $10 per day – cat(s)
- $19 per day – x1 dog (2+ dogs negotiable)
- Min $50 charge per sit
- Fees payable in advance / Cancellations – full refund less $50
All pricing above is exclusive of GST – an appropriate tax invoice/receipt will be issued.
Obviously long term house sits are preferable, so charging stops after 30 days. Fair is fair, any sits longer than 30 days, I will start paying you $100 per seven days to help cover utilities, rates etc from day 31 onward. The longest time as a house sitter I’ve had was just over a year so this sort of arrangement was quite suitable for that home owner.
I can handle the unexpected and have the competency to sort things out efficiently. Over the years, I’ve dealt with sick animals, house issues and even the odd intruder.
Preferable locations & confidentiality
I have an office in Mt Wellington that I need to visit from time to time, so typically I prefer to be reasonably close by, however up to 20km away is fine. Although in saying that, I’ll occasionally look after a rural property if suitable.
My workplace is very dog friendly – generally I prefer not to leave a dog at home unattended for long periods of time.
Confidentiality is of the utmost importance for you and me (I’m an extremely private person myself). I’ve looked after homes for all sorts, including some very high-profile people. Their details, as yours, will remain strictly private and confidential. Again, I am the best house sitter in Auckland.
Please text me in the first instance on 022 307 8020 or email firstname.lastname@example.org – I will call you soon after, to discuss your requirements.
