More Information

We are a married couple from Tauranga, in the sunny Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. We quit our jobs and have rented out our home while we take this opportunity to travel since the last of our dogs passed away. We have no children. We began our travels in Dec 2018 by spending six months in S.E. Asia, India and Nepal, visiting sights and volunteering at various animal shelters. We have now been in Europe/UK since May 2019 and will continue travelling and help out at other shelters when we can. We are both vegan and non-smokers.

Housesitting is a great opportunity to experience different countries and lifestyles while staying in your home to care for your pets. Having had pets of our own we know how important it is for them to stay at home while their owners are away. So, by housesitting we can help look after them in their own environment.

We have completed a few housesits now, and we're loving it. We're really keen to continue with more sits and to look after your home and pets. We have been lucky to share our lives with our two beautiful dogs (both gone now). We have also had rescue chickens for many years. And looked after many puppies while fostering for our local shelter, over a few years.

We will be out of the UK from Dec '19 until end March '20.

"Wonderful in every way. I highly recommend Paul and Annie. They kindly arrived a couple of days before we left for holiday, this enabled us to show them around the area, get used to the house and above all meet Bruno and spend time with him before we left. On our return we found a very happy and relaxed Bruno, everything was perfect and Paul and Annie are a lovely and very experienced couple. I hope they're able to come back when their travels allow."

"Annie & Paul took great care of my beloved Bongo and my apartment. I know she’s sometimes not the easiest pup but they have seemed to manage all very well. I also came back to a perfectly clean house and a happy Bongo. They would be very welcome to stay again any time :)"

"Paul and Annie were perfect housesitters. They were clean and reliable. It was a really nice surprise to come home to find they had already washed and dried their sheets and towels and folded them neatly, saving me the time and energy. They sent me updates and photos of Shanti while I was away. I could relax knowing she was in good hands. They were familiar with the training methods I use for Shanti, which was a huge bonus for me. I would definitely recommend Paul and Annie to anyone looking for responsible and loving housesitters for your beloved pets and would gladly welcome them back."

"Paul and Annie were our first housesitters and we couldn't have been more pleased. Their communication was great and the sit was hassle free. We came home to a spotless house and two very happy dogs. We couldn't recommend them more highly! Thank you :)"

Marion - Trusted Housesitters
"Paul & Annie are fantastic. They clearly love animals and immediately bonded with our two dogs. Our highly active Collies were super fit, healthy & happy on our return. It was wonderful to meet Paul & Annie who came to stay a few days early to walk with us and see the routine for our dogs. You would be very lucky to get them! Our dogs are still hoping to meet them on our walks :) The house was clean and all perfect on our return. Thanks a million & best of luck in your travels."
