Responsible, experienced and good with animals.

I have been travelling extensively for the last 10 years and have done house sitting all over the world during this period. My longest house sitting stint was a 3 month stint in Mexico. I enjoy looking after your pets and home while you are away and take this responsibility seriously. I enjoy meeting new people, seeing new places and doing new things - house sitting gives me the opportunity to do so.

From our recent experience, we wholeheartedly endorse Peter as an excellent house-sitter and pet carer. We could not have wished for a more competent and cooperative person. Peter took immaculate care of our property, tending lawns and gardens, as well as feeding and walking our two dogs and providing companionship during the day. This relationship was evident as he bid them goodbye. Our house was spotless when he departed, and he provided a thoughtful welcome home gift on our return. His ... MORE

We were very happy with the care Peter showed with our pets especially our elderly dog who struggled with the heat and storms. Peter kept us updated throughout the housesit and after an extremely long series of flights home it was so nice coming home to a clean house, washed bedding, mowed yard and sparkling pool. We wouldn’t hesitate to ask Peter to housesit for us again or recommend him to other people.

Our house looked better when we returned than when we left! We couldn't recommend Peter more! We knew our house and animals were safe in his hands.

We would like to thank Peter for taking great care of our beloved cat woo-woo and our home. Communication with Peter was absolutely amazing. He kept us up to date weekly with everything which we really appreciated. We came back to a very content and happy cat as if we had never been away. The house was immaculate on return which we feel was above and beyond what we expected. We would highly recommend Peter to house and pet sit, as this was our first experience for a house and pet sitter. We ... MORE

We were so fortunate to have Peter house sit and dog sit for us while we took a 2 week holiday. Harry had obviously been well looked after (even though he was happy to see us) and the house was immaculate. He kept us up to date that everything was going well at home which gave us peace of mind too. We couldn't have been happier and would definitely recommend Peter to anyone. We have already asked him if he can sit for us again.

Thank you Peter for taking such care of our home and dog Muscat. After long journey home complicated by travel delays and lost luggage it was great to get back to find everything just as we had left it and well cared for. Muscat was settled and relaxed immediately back into his routine clearly having beneifted from some great long walks. I would be happy to recommend Peter to care for your home, plants and pets.

Peter is such a nice guy. His communication from the beginning until he handed our keys back was fantastic. Peter took such great care of our dog Lily and gave regular updates while we were away. Our home was more clean and tiny than when we left. We’d definitely have Peter back. Thanks again for taking such wonderful care of our Lily.

Peter was such a great pet/house sitter; he left the house and garden in immaculate condition and the cats were very content even though we had been away for 4 weeks. I am so happy that we had such a great experience using Aussie House Sitters and we would not hesitate to have Peter come back and look after the house and pets again.
MARIA (Holland Park West QLD, Apr 2023 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Peter did an exceptional job housesitting for us while we were away for a week. He looked after our dog Jimmy and left the house in a great condition. The house was tidier than we left it and the dog was well taken care of. Peter is friendly and trustworthy, and it was evident that he is a genuine animal lover. We felt so comfortable with him in charge of our home and pets, and we would definitely hire Peter again in the future. We highly recommend him to anyone in need of a responsible and ... MORE

Peter looked after our house and two dogs for 3 weeks. He was a wonderful house sitter and both our dogs were very happily cared for. Peter communicated well with us whilst we were away and upon our return the house was spotless, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Peter as a house sitter.
ANNE (Greytown North Island, Mar 2023 - 3 weeks)
All Ray and myself can say is what a very pleasant gentleman Peter is. We were so lucky to have Peter answer my add. Our dogs and cats all happy chappys and our home was perfect. I feel Peter did more than was requested of him, which is very much appreciated. Highly recommend Peter to house sit, and hopefully we will see Peter again. Big thanks and thumbs up from us. Ray and Karen.
KAREN (Ocean View South Island, Dec 2022 - 3 days)
Peter was the perfect house and pet sit. He took good care of Ginger, our cavoodle, our home and garden. He was very easy-going and flexible. He stayed in touch throughout the stay and kept us posted with regard to deliveries, Ginger, etc. We'd be happy to have Peter stay at our place again.
EVELYN (Vaucluse NSW, Nov 2022 - 1 week 1 day) From Aussie House Sitters
Peter was an excellent house and pet sitter for the week we were away. He was very eager to follow our instructions for the animals, wanting to ensure he provided the exact same care as we normally would. He gave us regular updates despite only being gone for a week, which was much appreciated. Peter went above and beyond with care of the lawns/garden, and the house was in immaculate condition after he left. I'm also convinced Peter is a professional bed maker, our beds have never looked ... MORE
