Tara Carr

31, Primary School Teacher

Hello! I am a 31 year old teacher from New Zealand and have been living in China for the last year, teaching at the International School of Tianjin. I am looking at moving to the UK, and thought doing some house/pet sitting jobs would be a perfect way to see some of the country before I decide where to set myself up. I am quiet, tidy and love all animals. I will care for your home and pets as if they were my own. I hope to hear from you soon!

Tara communicated well and kept us up-to-date with how our lovely dog was getting on, by sending regular photos and videos. The dog was very happy and became part of their family.
HELEN (Alexandra South Island, Dec 2023 - 1 month 1 week) From Kiwi House Sitters
Marked low for paying someone to vacuum/mop and do the lawns upon departure as we were stretched for time. Left the house and gardens cleaner/better condition than when we arrived. Dog needed numerous visits to the vet for things that should have been dealt with before we arrived. Spent hours hand ... MORE
Tara and Sam were absolutely amazing. We felt totally confident leaving our 3 pets with them, which was such a relief as we were out of range for a while. Communication was faultless. We came home to a spotless house (still finding little drawers they cleaning and organised!!) a happy and healthy Beagle and two cats. We definitely plan on using them again. Absolutely fantastic!
KELLY (Mount Maunganui North Island, Jan 2023 - 8 nights) From Kiwi House Sitters
Tara did a wonderful job looking after our home. Communication was fantastic before, during and after our time away. Our cat was happy and healthy when we got home, which gave us peace of mind. We appreciated the house being clean and tidy and also the flexibility Tara had around our return date.. Our plants are all happy and there were quite a few to look after. We would definitely recommend Tara as a house and petsitter. Ngā mihi

GEORGE (Mt Cotton QLD, Jul 2022 - 2.5 months) From Aussie House Sitters
We recently had Tara and Sam as housesitters for a month, primarily to look after our Labrador, plants and garden while we were away. Tara stayed in regular contact with us, keeping us informed of our dog's "well-being" during our absence. Our neighbours reported meeting Tara and Sam and commented on how nice they were and that they saw no issues with them while we were away. We returned to an exceptionally clean house and a washed, walked, and fed dog. ... In summary, we returned to a very ... MORE
TONY (Balmoral QLD, Apr 2022 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
We found Tara to be a kind thoughtful tidy person who took lovely care of our wee mini schnauzer Luger, our gardens and our home. We returned home to a spotlessly clean house. Tara collected our mail, spoke kindly with our neighbours and was happy to come and stay at our home the night before we left on our holiday so that we could leave early in the morning and our dog was not left at home alone. We would be happy to use her (and hubby Sam) again and recommend them as house sitters.
MARK AND TERINA (Bribie Island QLD, Apr 2021 - 2 weeks 1 day) From Aussie House Sitters
Tara and Sam looked after our home and dog so well. Their communication was excellent from the start even sending us a video update. We would highly recommend them as a caring and responsible couple to look after your home and pets.
VANESSA (Redland Bay QLD, Feb 2020 - 4 days) From Aussie House Sitters
We are so grateful to Kiwi House Sitters for connecting us with the lovely Tara who took such good care of our house and pets. The cats seem very happy and contented and the house was left immaculate.
SARAH (Birkdale North Island, Aug 2019 - 12 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
Tara came highly praised and I now understand why. We had a minor miscommunication re our return time but other than that, the house was clean and tidy, the cats were all looking great We did find a washing machine full of wet towels but I put that down to the confusion over our return time.
NOEL (Arkles Bay North Island, Aug 2019 - 23 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
Excellent sitter, House was left spotless, dogs were well looked after. Easy communication between myself and the sitter. Highly recommend.
MAREE (Papakura North Island, Jul 2019 - 6 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
Tara was great when she looked after our pets and house. Pets had a great time (dog & cat) and Tara left our house immaculate. Communication was perfect as we were overseas. I would recommend Tara and would definitely use her to house sit again.
GEORGINA (Epsom North Island, Jun 2019 - 3 and a half weeks) From Kiwi House Sitters
Tara was a terrific house-sitter. Thank you for taking such great care of the house and animals. Pud was especially happy with all the walkies! Good luck with your future house sits : )

Tara was amazing - so easy to communicate with and nothing was a problem - came home to a very happy Reggie as her and her partner took him out for lots of walks.Our house was left spotless.Definitely book her again.
JENNY (Albany North Island, Jun 2019 - 3 weeks) From Kiwi House Sitters
Tara is amazing! She took very good care of my animals (Gaia and Julie). The house was better than when I left. I highly recommend Tara and I trust her absolutely. Thank you Tara. See you soon definitely ;-)
CORINNE (Silverdale North Island, May 2019) From Kiwi House Sitters
Tara looked after my cats for two recent house sits and I felt so comfortable that they were in good hands. The house was left in perfect condition each time (possibly even cleaner than I left it!) and the cats were happy. Highly recommend Tara.
MARLENE (Mt Eden North Island, May 2019 - 4 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
This was the first time we'd used a house/pet sitter and we've been blown away by how amazing Tara was. She went above and beyond our expectations in terms of communication (texted us updates and photos of our dogs out walking, left us a note when she left, etc), pet care and house care - the house was immaculate when we got home. We really appreciated the obvious extra care and time that had gone into prepping our large, new house for our arrival home. Tara is a friendly, polite, sensible, ... MORE

No rating Thankyou Tara for taking great care of Cassie, also thanks for the lovely clean and tidy home I came back to, it was a real delight after the heavy workload I had just left. I hope that I may be able to use your services again and would certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a reliable house sitter. Good luck with your future adventures. Thankyou again..
LILIAN (Whakatane North Island, Sep 2018 - 2 weeks) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating Well what a lovely lady. Left the house clean and tidy and looked after our 2 cats and rabbit so well. Nothing was too much trouble and Tara looked after our garden as well. Would definitely recommend Tara to anyone that needs their home or animals looking after. Thank you so much Tara! x
