About

We both came from a corporate background in the NZ 1980's. Lived in Western Australia for 14 years 1990 to 2004 then returned to family in NZ. We have a daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren who live in Tauranga. A son leasing a farm

Why we want to house sit

To see more of the world and maybe get the chance to meet some of our hosts at the same time. Live with the locals and still have the companionship of a pet or three. Love meeting new people and experiencing different cultures, food etc

Our experience

Previously, while we have been between homes, we have house-sat and pet-minded for friends - and friends of friends - through word of mouth recommendation. Heather has real estate experience and was a licensed property manager in Western
