We are a non-smoking, retired professional couple (trustworthy and reliable). We will happily care for your pets, (cats, dogs, birds, fish, chooks, no problem but we have no experience with bigger animals eg. Horses, cattle etc). We will look after lawns, gardens, and pot plants and we have even been known to handle a paintbrush and do small handyman jobs. We can provide an Airport shuttle service to airport if required. And it goes without saying we will collect mail, answer phonecalls, take messages etc.

We are hoping we can help you out by housesitting your home/pets and taking away some of your worry/concern about your home/pets while you are away. In return you will be helping us out by letting us respect your home as if it was our own.

We have been complimented by the owners of previous housesit jobs who have been extremely pleased with the care and attention to detail we have provided.

Please give us the opportunity to look after your place so that you can have a worry-free break.

No rating Rhonda and John are lovely people - genuine, honest, caring and trustworthy. We have had them look after our house and animals on several occasions and always return home to a tidy, clean house and happy pets. They walk our dog, ensure all animals are fed and looked after and John mows the lawn, even when we ask him not to worry :) Have no hesitation in recommending these two.

Rhonda and John are the best sitters you can get for their commitment for your home and pet care. We came home to a lovely clean home and a very happy dog. They even checked on my elderly parents while they were here. Rhonda and John, you are most welcome to stay at anytime in the future. Thank you so much. xx

Rhonda and John can come back any time they like, as sitters or friends. Loved my happy pets, immaculate house, watered and weeded garden and, massive wonderful surprise, a clean sparkling oven. Thank you both, very, very much. Do hope you made use of the spa and practiced your dance moves in the studio!!!! Paula and Mark

Rhonda and John were amazing house-sitters who went far beyond the call of duty during their short stay. They laboured in my garden - John even hired a weed wacker - buried a dead chicken, cared for my dogs and home as if they were their own. A lovely, warm and approachable couple I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending them.

Rhonda and John were the perfect house sitters and would highly recommend them for any future house sitting. The care of our house exceeded our expectations and our little dog Pheobe is still looking for them. Our house is sparkling clean and a joy to come home to.

Rhonda and John they are highly recommended from us. We have had them look after the house and animals two times and when we got home the house was immaculate and the animals were all happy and now are dictating to us that we need to walk them as long as Rhonda and John do. A fantastic couple. We have just been lucky to have them house sit again for 3 weeks April - May 2019.

No rating Rhonda and John did a wonderful job of looking after our house,it looked so clean and comfortable on our return with fresh flowers in the vases and extended their wonderful care to looking after our cat with lots of cuddles and lap time. They even took us to the airport to catch our flights . Thank you would have no hesitation in recommending you or having you back .
