Feedback About Us

We understand the importance of trust when taking on people to look after your business and/or your home and your pets.

Some guests and home owners have written feedback referring to us:

"...the service from Ross was extraordinary and deeply appreciated. Ross and his wife, who were temporary managers at the lodge, reflected well on the kindness and courtesy of the residents of New Zealand. On several occasions, he went above and beyond normal duties in providing assistance and kindness to us. I wanted to be sure his wonderful efforts were acknowledged and appreciated. I felt the best way to do that was to let you know of his superior service..." [email from guest from Hawaii 2016]

"...Very friendly staff (dried our wet bike gear overnight for us) ... [Booking.com review 2015]

"While (we) were visiting relatives in England from 22 July to 19 August 2015 we had Wyn & Ross Davies house sit for us. We found them to be honest, reliable and trustworthy. We were very happy with how they looked after our house. It was spick and span when we returned home and our pot plants were thriving well. We could hardly tell they had been here. We have seven tropical fish in a heated tank. We required Wyn & ross to do a tank clean/part water change halfway through their stay. It can be a bit tricky to do but they obviously took it in their stride. They also followed the feeding instructions properly as all the fish were alive and well on our return home and the Ph balance of the water in the tank was normal. Yay! We are confident to recommend Wyn & Ross for any other house sitting positions available and we wouldn't hesitate to have them back again ourselves." [Reference from house owners 2015]
