I'm from the UK, but have spent the majority of my life in NZ, most recently working at Peter Jackson's Weta Digital. I've just moved to Los Angeles and I'm looking to housesit whilst I get myself established here. My References: 10 October 2015, Mandy Collins We found the lovely Jen on our NZ house sitters site when we were looking for a sitter while we spent a week in Rarotonga. I have an old cat who hates to be alone, and Jen was great company for her. She is sweet, easy going,quiet and very earnest. We had no issues at all on our return - the house was clean, the cat was happy, and all was as it should be. I would have her in my home again anytime, so it's sad she's leaving the country. Arohanui Jen, and safe travels. 1 March 2015, Suzanne Cowan Jen is a charming person and an excellent house- and pet sitter: Reliable, kind, well organized and efficient. On her very first visit she won the trust of our high-strung, often mean little dog, making friends with him and taking him for long walks. We especially appreciate Jen's sense of responsibility: She arrives on time, remembers appointments and keeps in close touch with us while we are away. We feel very lucky to have found Jen and would call on her whenever we need someone to provide loving care for our home and dog! 9 January 2015, Catherine Lennon Jen Metcalfe house sat for us while we were away for a period of 10 days over the Christmas break. We have a dog, a cat and a guinea pig that are very important family members Jen cared for our animals very wel. She thoughtfully cooked food for our fussy dog when the food I left for him ran out, walked the dog and made sure the cat and guinea pig were fed and looked after. I checked in via email a couple of times with Jen to see if all was ok, and I always received prompt informative emails assuring me all was fine with the animals and the house. The house was clean and tidy and in order upon our return, but most importantly the animals were happy and relaxed. I have no hesitation in recommending Jen for future House Sitting as a reliable and trustworthy house sitter and a compassionate and kind pet sitter. 6 December 2014, Sally Thorburn Jen Metcalfe has been looking after several properties for me since 2010. She is completely reliable, honest and a joy to deal with. Whenever I leave my home, Jen is my first choice to look after it. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending her to care for your property, plants and animals. She will be greatly missed in New Zealand!
