Rylana and Joris were very conscientious house sitters; respectful and tidy. They sent me updates and pictures on a regular basis and I felt that my cats were safe and loved at all times. One of my cats needs medicating morning and evening. This didn't presented a problem for them and I was satisfied this was all administered as requested. I can highly recommend both Rylana and Joris as great house sitters and would definitely have them back.

Rylana & Joris are a lovely and respectful couple. They recently cared for my house and 2 cats for nearly 4 weeks and I would highly recommend them. I received regular updates and photos which was entertaining and really reassuring while I was travelling. My older cat requires asthma medication every day and giving this wasn't a problem for them. On my return, my house was spotless and my cats were happy and relaxed. I couldn't ask for anything more.
SUSAN (Darling Point NSW, Jun 2019 - 3.5 weeks)
Rylana and Joris are a dream team as house-sitters. They are highly professional as well as friendly and tuned into animals. We returned home to a spotless house, happy cats and some delicious home made fare. Would have them housesit again in a heartbeat!
RACHELLE (Randwick NSW, May 2019 - 3.5 weeks)
Thanks to Joris and Rylana. A really lovely couple, they communicated with us so well and clearly have great experience with pet sitting and understood what would be required. They provided us with regular updates and photos of the pets and we returned to an immaculate house, happy pets and a fantastic homemade soup. I would highly recommend them and would be happy to have them housesit for us again.
SOPHIE (Camperdown NSW, Apr 2019 - 1 week 5 days)
I confidently left my 2 dogs (babies) and my home in the care of Rylana and Joris and they did not disappoint me. I felt very assured that my dogs were cared for kindly and they continued to get the level of care and attention they were used to! I received regular updates/photos and came home to a clean house and even a treat in the fridge! I hope that Rylana and Joris are available next time I take a trip - I would recommend them to anyone and would love to have them house sit for me ... MORE

Rylana and Joris looked after our house and dogs early March 2019 just after arriving in Australia, they were the nicest people and we came home to very happy dogs and a well looked after house. Whilst we were only away for the weekend we got updates on our fur babies and even photos. We would have them back anytime in a heartbeat. Lovely people and highly recommended.
GEORGINA (North Narrabeen NSW, Mar 2019 - 2 days)
We were so lucky to find Rylana & Joris at short notice to look after our lifestyle block. They did an amazing job, feeding out hay to our cattle & horses and taking great care of our cats & dogs. Joris took some absolutely stunning photos of our dogs which we will treasure. The house was beautifully clean & tidy & they had made some lovely soup which we were able to share with them before they left. We wish them all the best for the future and would welcome them back anytime.
CHRIS & EMMA (Canvastown South Island, Feb 2019 - 1 week) From Kiwi House Sitters
Joris & Rylana looked after our 2 dogs for 3 days while we were away at a wedding. One of our dogs was just a puppy at the time, the other her 11 year old grandmother. We were a little apprehensive at leaving the puppy for the 1st time but need not have been. Joris & Rylana cared for our dogs & our home as if they were there own. We arrived home to a delicious meal. We would highly recommend this couple.
DIANE (Strowan South Island, Feb 2019 - 3 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
Joris and Rylana were just the best house and dog sitters - we cannot speak highly enough of them. They sent us updates on and photos of our dog every few days which were just lovely and she was very very well taken care of. Even after we arrived home she wanted to go back to the cottage and stay with Joris and Rylana. The cottage when they left was absolutely spotless and tidy and they had also taken very good care of it. They are a lovely young couple always willing to help and we would ... MORE
CHRISTINE (New Plymouth North Island, Oct 2018 - 1 month 1 week) From Kiwi House Sitters
Joris and Rylana are FANTASTIC. They sent us updates during the week and left us some home made soup for dinner for our first night home - very kind and most unexpected! The house was spotless and the animals were all happy when we got home. Thanks so much Joris and Rylana for doing such a great job!
CHRISSY (Taupo 3384 North Island, Oct 2018 - 5 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating Rylana and Joris housesit for us for 4 weeks. We did not meet them personally but their communication was fabulous and quick. They were flexible and we returned home to a happy cat and beautifully clean home. A huge bonus was also the home cooked dinner awaiting us. We would be happy to recommend Rylana and Joris to others
WENDY (Acacia Bay North Island, Sep 2018 - 4 weeks) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating Joris and Rylana were excellent house and pet sitters. Our dog loved them and they took her everywhere with them. The house was very clean and all animals were well looked after. Our chook even started laying eggs again! I can highly recommend them Maria
MARIA (Waipu North Island, Aug 2018 - 1 week 2 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating Rylana and Joris are amazing!!! They looked after our farm for 3 weeks in August, including 6 horses, 2 cats and 2 dogs. They were fantastic communicators both before and during the housesit, got on well with our friends and neighbours if they needed any questions answered, and they sent us regular updates on the animals while we were overseas which was great. We came home to a wonderfully clean, tidy house, happy relaxed well cared for animals and even a homemade apple pie and pumpkin soup ... MORE
