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 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.


We still need several house sitters in our Auckland areas over the Christmas and New Year periods!

Please email / contact the Branch Manager in your area if you are a house sitter who is available over this period- we have home owners still contacting us who have been let down by kennels, catteries and other arrangements!  We are also looking to hear from sitters who may be able to step into similar late January bookings to help our home owners look after their pets and properties.


Homesit is the top professional house sitting and pet sitting service in New Zealand, with more than 26 years' experience matching happy house-owners with reliable and capable housesitters.

It's simple to register as a home-owner if you want a housesitter or daily pet-feeding visit.  Simply fill out our online Sitter Request form and we will both contact you and add your new housesitting assignment to our regular Sit List.  Find out more on our FAQ page or register now online -
