About Claire and Romain

What we offer

Away from the busy life of the CBD, we offer to pets a beautiful retreat in the quiet area of Houghton bay. Our outside north-facing deck offer plenty of occasion to enjoy the sun, and the sliding-door is always open to allow coming in and out depending on each pet's mood.

  • Cats and rodents will enjoy our cosy flat and the nearby deck for exploring around, maybe making friend in the neibourhood for cats?
  • For dogs, we do take them on our daily evening walks either on the scenic Lyall bay, the wild Houghton bay or walking in the bush of the Houghton valley. There is always a pit-stop for ball-throwing at one of the large green areas.

Who we are

We are a French couple in their 30s and we both love animals. Claire grew up on a farm with many animals, especially with 3 cats and a family dog who received tons of loves. Romain grew up in the countryside with a cat at home with which he shared 18 happy years.

We arrived in New Zealand in September 2019 and we've been cycling through the North and South island for 6 months. We've met many New-Zealanders, and their lovely animals. We are postivie people with good energies that the animal feels. Be it lost in Croatia or down in Te Anau, when we travel we always discover a cat who elected our tent as his new home or our bed as a perfect place for a 24hrs nap (Orange cat sleeping on one of the picture). We love caring and feeding animals and they usually pay us back with lot of love.

Our living place, style and work

We live in our flat just by ourself, and we do not have other pets at home. We both work full-time Monday to Friday, 9 to 5

  • Romain usually spend 4 days in the CBD and one at home.
  • Claire works 4 days at home and 1 in the CBD.

Let's meet ?

We're looking forward to meet you and your beloved pet(s), and we'll enjoy taking great care of him/her/them.

We used Claire and Romain to walk our two dogs. They responded promptly, arranged for a meet and greet quickly and overall were very professional. We received a lovely photo and text while the dogs were out on their walk. Would definitely use them again and can recommend to others.
