Looking for a house sitter?

Homesit Nelson & Marlborough provides a local service to home and pet owners looking for a house or pet sitter to keep your pets and home safe and cared for while you're away.

With years of experience as both a sitter and a pet owner, I know it can be worrying to go away with concerns over your pets' happiness and welfare or home security. A house sitter provides peace of mind, knowing your house is occupied and your pets are happy at home with their familiar routines, bed, food and toys.
