Kirsten Caring Writer

49, Writer


Hi. I am a writer, enjoying house sitting and enjoying the company of animals as I write. I have lived in cities, when a corporate consultant and trainer and then enjoyed the rural life, raising sons enjoying the eco-organic building and garden idea. I have had many animals - dogs, cats, chickens, horses, milking cows and goats, guinea fowl and befriended a python snake too.

I love beautiful space - so can really care for your house and garden. I have built organic vegetable gardens, landscape infrastructure and beautiful fruit, nut and ornamental gardens. I have managed retreats and airbnbs.

I have been beautifying properties in New Zealand in exchange for rent - as per some of my references. Im currently in Australia, house sitting, visiting friends and family. I currently have a house sit anytime I want but love to go to new places too. I'm looking forward to returning to NZ soon!

I would highly recommend Kirsten to care for your property. She cared for my home when I was spending time with my partner, preparing for the birth of our child. She knew how I was in spring clean mode and was so good at helping me feel the home was tidy and loved. She even scrubbed the shower glass to the point it was see through again! I found her really flexible and accommodation. She is caring and a good friend always. She helped garden, weed and maintain the outside of the house too. She creates such a lovely space of warmth and kept her room beautiful and tidy. I trust her with my home and recommend her wherever she goes.

Kirsten is an ideal house sitter, while house sitting in the cook islands Kirsten kept to her self so she always had the place neat and tidy, she even helped me at the house I was looking after. She walked and fed the dog when I wasn't able to, or even joined along and helped me with tidying up. I highly recommend her for house sitting

Hi, I have met Kirsten a while ago when she just returned back to New Zealand. I had strong interest in organic gardening, permaculture and living from the land. From the very beginning we got to close with Kirsten and partly it was due to her profound knowledge and experience of this things. Kirsten is very pro active person and does not need anybody tell her what and where to do as she has such a strong connection to nature and animals that she sees it. She is also very creative and has lot of inspiring ideas of where to expand, improve or make things more efficient. She can create magic out of nearly nothing which is fascinating to watch. When it comes to Kirsten as a person, from my personal experience she is very reliable, trustworthy, accountable, kind and loving. I would trust her more them many members of my family. She has a good sense for order, tidiness and beauty... I would recommend to tell her exactly what you want as she is direct person and can take it openly. I would be honored if Kirsten would like to look after my animals and garden as I will know it is in good, loving and safe hands. Enjoy your time with her, Michaela

I have known Kirsten for 10 years. In that time Kirsten has always has displayed utmost integrity. Has always maintained a clean and tidy household. Kirsten enthusiasticly maintains property and gardens and has had much experience. Kirsten is also great with pets and is accustomed to caring for horses, goats and other domestic animals. I would say that Kirsten would be an ideal candidate to look after any home.
