Richard and Tess did a wonderful job of looking after our home, garden and pets. The house was spotless on our return and pets were happy and relaxed. We'd have them back anytime :-)

Richard care for our dog Mylo well. The house was kept clean.

Thanks Pradnya. Mylo needs puppy schooling to boost his confidence. He is very scared especially towards male human. A professional dog trainer will be able to help. Deep inside he is a loving dog.
Richard and Angelo were marvellous - stepped in at short notice and did far more than expected in looking after my property and chooks. I have no hesitation in recommending them to others looking for reliable house sitters.
