56, Writer

Hi there. My name is Wil, I'm a non-smoker/non-drinker and have genuine written and verbal refs. Please see my reviews from Kiwihousesitters below and the attached refs.
I'm 56 and a writer. I've had extensive experience looking after the wants and needs of many a treasured family member: cats, dogs (all and every kind) chooks, sheep, cows, donkeys, a grumpy mule and a one eyed crow named Arthur.
I'm currently based in the Wellington region (NZ) but looking for longer sits in Australia now the bubble is happening. I am able to travel quickly and arrive before you depart.

I'm an extremely quiet and respectful house guest. I'm a full time writer so I work from home. I can provide lots of attention to your lovely friends.
( nothing is more conducive to good writing than peace, quiet and the company of animals)
I am a plumber by trade.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind Regards

Rating: 5.0 Wil housesat for us for 4 weeks and did a fantastic job. We give him 10/10 for everything! We came home to a clean and tidy house, happy and relaxed pets and he'd done a great job keeping the garden watered, the pool clean and the lawns mowed. His communication was excellent and we enjoyed regular updates and photos of our happy pets. We loved the fact that he's a writer and therefore home most of the time as that's what our pets are used to. We came home the night before he left and it was obvious that our Labrador and 2 cats had all bonded well with him. Thanks again Wil, and hope you can housesit for us again sometime!
five stars all round! Pl feel free to contact for verbal ref

Rating: 5.0 THEIR REVIEW OF YOU: I'd highly recommend Wil as a housesitter. He was pleasant and easy to deal with - with prompt communications. He sent me regularly updates while I was away, which I really appreciated and my cat was really happy under his care. The house was clean and just as I left it. A really easy housesitting experience with Wil. Thanks Wil, from me and Theo :)

Rating: 5.0 THEIR REVIEW OF YOU: Wil was very attentive and thoughtful with my house and pet dog. There were some hick ups on my part and slight changes of plans but he adapted with ease and no stress. I would definitely have him house sit and care for my dog again.

Rating: 5.0 THEIR REVIEW OF YOU: It was wonderful having Wil look after our lifestyle property for five weeks. House was kept tidy, lawns mowed and animals (sheep, chocks and cat) were well looked after. Bluey (our cat) says "thanks for looking after me so well". Wil would message us on a regular basis letting us know all was okay and would include photos of the animals, which was most appreciated. Would definitely recommend Wil as a trusted housesitter and we hope to use him again in the near future. David and Chrissy

Peace of Mind

Happy you!

With a house sitter looking after your pets, house and garden - you can really relax. Happy days.
