Homesit - taking care while you're not there

New Zealand's No. 1 Professional Housesitting Service

Worried about pets and security while you're away from home? Homesit is New Zealand's leading housesitting and petsitting service, providing either live-in housesitters or daily visits to love your pets, care for your home, tend your plants, collect mail and carry out any other helpful duties while you are away.

Home Sitters

Our sitters are kind and caring animal lovers who are mature, practical, conscientious and capable.  We interview each sitter in person, verify their references and honesty and require a police-check not more than two years old.

Home Owners

We give you peace of mind while you're away from your home by ensuring your pets, home, plants and possessions are safe and getting the best possible care. Many of our home-owners are so happy with our service that they have been with us for years.

Daily Visits

Would a daily pet or home visit suit your requirements instead of a live-in housesitter? Just contact us to discuss how one of our experienced Homesit managers can care for your home and pets while you're away.

Pet Sitting

for cats, dogs
& other pets

Having a responsible Homesit house sitter in your home is the next best thing to being there yourself. Our sitters are thoroughly-vetted, love animals and are reliable, honest and professional.

Here's to 2015

Homesit wishes all of our home owners and house sitters a great summer and year ahead.

Thanks to our Christmas and New Year sitters around the country for looking after homes and pets so that home owners could take a break with family and friends. We hope that everyone is enjoying these sunny summer days we're having.

We're taking a quick breath after one of our busiest times of the house sitting calendar year and are happily planning ahead for 2015.  Some brief New Year updates - we're pleased to be steadily growing right around New Zealand, with locations where we're currently looking for several more house sitters and daily pet visitors including our biggest cities Auckland and Wellington and the Top of the South.

Here's to a happy, healthy and productive 2015 ahead!
