Thanks for your great site. We have four people to interview. The quality of the people look great and ones we've talked to are polite & friendly. I'd recommend your site to anyone. Thanks Barb
I'm really impressed with your site. It's easy to use & brings in great responses. The people we met were fantastic. Already used one couple. I'm also so impressed how quickly you solved my problem & I appreciated your help. Barb (Welcome Bay)
I have found 3 house sitters through your great site. Thank you for helping me to find satisfactory sitters. I hope your site always prospers - thanks again! Jeanette
My husband and I are thrilled with Kiwi House Sitters, we love it, and we think it is an amazing service to house owners and sitters as we have been both. Honestly it has blessed us and I also value how easy the website is to use. We have had wonderful experiences. Thank you so much. Alice
We have had many lovely people message us about being keen to stay at our house. We have been incredibly impressed with the response and the ease of contact and the process in advertising and communicating with possible sitters. We are very grateful. Margaret
Great service, great website, we got a fantastic housesitter and will definitely be using Kiwi house sitters again. Thank you! Pauline
I just want to congratulate whoever is behind the creation and maintenance of this website. It is SO user-friendly, so professional and an absolute pleasure to use! Everything is well covered. I have used your services twice now and I wouldn't go anywhere else. In total gratitude. Bronwyn
I am amazed, I posted my ad and was told within 24 hrs to expect response. Well within 2 hrs I had emails and phone calls and have engaged a local couple to house sit. Perfect, thank you so much. Margo
Just wanted to say thank you for your site. Found a couple within hours of putting my ad up. They were awesome house sitters. Carolyn
I’d like to say thanks to Kiwi House Sitters – it’s because of this site that we’ve begun to feel we can have holidays without the worry about our animals welfare. Thanks heaps. Jenny (Katikati)
I really love Kiwi Housesitters and I have had a lot of response and met new people and made some new friends. The response to my ad is such that I have six bookings from the 13th of this month right through until the 26th of July which is fabulous. Kim
Great website - we had a lovely couple - Jeff and Glenys - who looked after our house cat & dog for a week - came home to a lovely clean house and two very happy animals - would have them back anytime. Kay & Chris
The Kiwi house sitters site gave us a great choice of potential sitters for when we holidayed in the US for 6 weeks. And turned up a wonderful woman who enjoyed the freedom of our house for her and her dog (we had no animals) and left the house and garden better than we’d left it. Graeme & Carolyn
Thank you for providing an excellent service. We are both very impressed. We put the ad in late Friday and had a reply Saturday morning. Thank you so much. Cheers Sandra
I have found a very suitable house sitter from your website and I thank you for the service that you offer. Regards, Evelyn
Just want to say a big thanks. I contacted several Kiwi house sitters from your site and within 2 hours have lined up a nice couple. So fast and easy - thanks. Dawn
I must congratulate kiwihousesitters - the website and calibre of prospective House sitters is impressive. Will be sure to recommend. Kindest Regards Karen
Thanks Kiwi Housesitters! We have found a lovely sitter from your system and are very happy. We have been telling everyone we meet about your free service. Claire B
Thank you so much Kiwi House Sitters. I was very apprehensive about going away, but I found your site so user friendly - and had a result in days. Excellent. Sue
We are very impressed at the time it took to organise a housesitter. We contacted about 5 sitters and now we have confirmed someone. Thanks! Barbara
We are more than happy to give a rating of "5". The service provided is superb. Peter and Marion
I was quite overwhelmed by the wonderful emails I received straight off for a sitter for my Sphynx Cat. I would like to thank you for the amazing service and will definitely use again. I just wish I had found you earlier. Robyn
Stunningly good service Kiwi, thank you! Beautifully set up site, a joy to use! Caroline
On three separate times we have advertised and on each occasion we have had the most wonderful house sitters look after our cottage and cats. This service is fantastic and without it we could not have gone away with peace of mind knowing we have wonderful people in out home. Thanks Kiwi Housesitters for making it all possible. Some of them have become friends too. Pete and Sherrie.
I just wanted to drop a quick line to say what a successful housesit we had through your site. The house sitter was just amazing, very responsive, loved our cats and looked after our house as if it were her own. It was really great and we will definitely use your site in the future. Very professionally run - great work! Cheers Laurie
This is the first time I have used a house sitting site, and I wish I had known about them sooner! Almost everyone I emailed about the housesitting opportunity responded, I had several house sitters approach me directly, and although the first person I chose to housesit had to pull out due to personal reasons, I had someone else lined up again in no time. They turned out to be people after my own heart – I couldn’t have asked for anyone better - and I came back to a clean house, a yard tidier then I left it and lots of very contented animals. If everyone on this site is even half as good as the sitters I got, you’ll be doing okay! Such an awesome alternative to paying someone $25 a day to turn up once a day and feed your animals! Thanks Kiwi House Sitters for the peace of mind – you run a great site :) Jewels
We have just returned home to find our house & dogs happy and just the way we left them. The house sitter has obviously done a fantastic job. I am recommending him to all my friends. Thanks for your service. Will also recommend your sitting site don't worry :-) Margaret & Doug
I would like to thank you for your assistance via your great website. I was stressed to the max when a friend became ill and could no longer housesit for us and look after our two golden retrievers over Christmas. I have received several wonderful emails from people on your database and we will now have peace of mind to go away knowing our house and dear dogs are in good hands. Thank you very much. Jill
Great site. Thanks for allowing us to place a free homeowner advert. We have now engaged a young family to look after our hobby farm. They are new to house sitting but sound more than capable. We let you know more when we get back - thanks again! Peter
We've arranged for a sitter to mind our home and cat for 6 weeks while we holiday in Australia. We will definitely spread the good word about Kiwi House Sitters. Will let you know how it all goes when we get back. Regards, Jim & Pat
Thankyou so much for your service. Kiwi housesitters was recommended to us from people in Dunedin. We've now found a young family happy to house sit and care for our precious animals. We will use you again, promise! regards, Preston and Alice
My homeowner advertisement can be removed as we have connected with a couple from Brisbane to look after the house. Great system, and so pleased that it has worked out for us and them. Kind Regards, Karen
Your website has been great as we have found the perfect house sitter - thank you. Judith
We have found very appropriate house sitters, thank you for your excellent house sitting site. We will use it again as we've really heard from some wonderful people/sitters. Thanks again Joy & Warwick
Just a note to say that we've used your service twice; once for six nights, another for two and a half weeks, and both times were thrilled with the people who looked after our place. The first couple left the place spick and span, the second couple left us a fantastic ready-to-heat meal in the fridge! The cats were well-fed and happy, and the property kept tidy. It's a great service you guys reply and we couldn't be happier with the results. Steve and Emily (Te Atatu, Auckland)
While planning our upcoming overseas trip I discovered that kennelling for our dogs was going to be $1000 and then realized that I had neglected to make arrangements for our cat! Kiwi House Sitters to the rescue. My central Auckland home advertisement was lodged on your web-site and I was overwhelmed with applicants. I interviewed two candidates and clicked with the chosen person and she with us. We can now plan the rest of our trip knowing that our dogs and home will be looked after and that we have also provided a warm, comfortable home for our house sitter. Thank you for such a wonderful service. Mia (Auckland)
Thanks so much - your website is brilliant. Warm regards Jo
Thank you so much, what a wonderful website, I have told all my friends who have small lifestyle blocks, as finding a house sitter is always such a problem! Your website has been a life saver. Now we can go away on a much needed holiday! Kind Regards Fiona
Hi. We used the site for the first time - while we went away for 2 weeks at the beginning of this month. It was also the first time we had used a house sitter, where someone stayed in our home (as opposed to someone with caravan or motorhome staying on the property). It was extremely successful with absolutely no complaints!! We have to admit we were very apprehensive, but being able to make contact and talk with the proposed house sitter before either party committed was invaluable. There were several animals to feed, and they were all well looked after, the house was clean and tidy on our return. We used the home and pet checklists and the agreement all available on the website. These are imperative - the checklists cover almost everything!! We are now planning a second trip away and are already in contact with someone else from the site, whom we will meet before going away. We would gladly have had our first house sitter but she was unavailable for the time we would next be away. Julie and Malcolm
Dear Kiwihouse-sitters, We have used your site twice now to arrange house-sitters, the second time being this weekend. Within an hour or two or contacting someone, we have had responses from suitable people and have made firm arrangements. Our first experience last year was brilliant and those people are coming back from Australia next year to sit for us again as it worked out so well on both sides. And now we have someone arranged for our holiday this year, again all done very quickly! So we wanted to let you know how impressed we are with your web site and the people who use it. We have told lots of people about it and I hope you continue to do well as it really is the best way to have home and pets cared for while on holiday. Thanks again, Anne (Cromwell, Otago)
We would like to say how great your website is. We have been overwhelmed with responses for our 3 months sit in January to mind our special needs dog, and are interviewing 3 candidates this week. Last time we went away, it cost us nearly $900 to register our house and pet on a competitor website. I know they personally checked all applicants, but surely we can check references and meet with the people to know whether we want them or not. Congratulations on a well done job. Regards Robert
My first experience with kiwihousesitters has been brilliant and I cant say enough about my house sitters or your website. There is a great need out there and I'm advertising it to everyone! Many thanks! Marie (Auckland)
