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.

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 while you're away.

Your pets are much happier at home in their regular routines with a petsitter, while as well as affectionate care for your pets (or farm animals) a housesitter's presence and daily activity deters burglars .... who are expert at picking up signs that say 'no-one home'!

Our sitters are mature, practical, conscientious and police-checked.  We interview each sitter in person, verify their references and ensure that they know how to carry out your instructions professionally and competently.


Homesit is the top professional housesitting and petsitting service in New Zealand, with more than 26 years' experience matching happy house-owners with experienced and capable housesitters.  Contact us today if you're an owner planning a trip or would like to find out more about becoming a Homesit housesitter.

Client Testimonials

I also wanted to thank you for sending me this lovely couple. My cat was the happiest I have ever seen him when returning from a holiday. The house was immaculate and Cherryl and David even left us a beautiful pot plant. We kept in touch with them on a weekly basis which was great and gave us peace of mind.
So in short Cherryl and David were the perfect couple to look after our pet and property. Thank you very much again.

Just a note to let you know that the sitter did a wonderful job looking after Jake and Tibby. It really worked out well so thank you. We are probably going to need a sitter again in the December holidays - but I will forward the dates to you via the web site.
Many thanks again.
