Mark and I (Lesley) live full time on the road in our landrover/small motorhome. As X teachers we sold up and hit the road some 8 years ago. We spend our time travelling, completing small electrical jobs (our mobile business) and house sitting.

If we can we like to house sit during the school holidays as the roads, campsites and freedom camping spots are very busy then.

In the past we have had pets of our own and love walking so you can be guaranteed your pets will be well looked after and exercised.

We are fully vaxed, non smoking and reliable.

Mark and Lesley did an excellent job of looking after our dog, Pippa. They were very good at keeping us informed and sending us photos on how well she was doing. We certainly felt confident leaving her with them. Upon our return, the house had been left neat and tidy, and all washing done. We are grateful for their care and therefore commend them to anyone looking for reliable petsitters.

Mark and Lesley were fantastic! They took great care of our fur babies. The house was very well cared for, I would definitely have them house sit again.

We would definitely come back too, to look after the most gorgeous little dogs in the land. Very handy location for town too and Alexa is definitely a bonus.
Mark and Lesley were great house sitters they cared for our cats, house and pot plants while we were away 12 days. We came back to happy cats and safe and tidy home. Thanks for your care and great communications. Recommend them for future sits.

Thank you for the great review Jean. The 5 cats were so easy to look after, all so calm and got on really well together. Your home is lovely and in a nice quiet area. Highly recommended.
We found Mark and Lesley relaxed and easily going. Their care of our animals was great and we would recommend them to others who are looking for a couple to respect the host's home and love their animals :)

Thank you for your positive post. Given it was the middle of winter and your garden was well overgrown maybe a N/A would of been more applicable for garden care unless you were looking for a gardener that is lol.
We asked Mark and Lesley to housesit our lifestyle block which included looking after beef stock, sheep, horse, chooks, cat and our dog. Also keeping an eye on our huge garden and pool. Mark and Lesley were rockstars, nothing was a problem, super easy to deal with. Everything was awesome when we got home, animals happy and garden still green. I would absolutely recommend them although that limits my chances of being able to have them back and I would definitely love to have them back ;)

Lesley and Mark were fantastic! We arrived home to one very happy and relaxed yellow 'feathered child and a spotless home. Lesley had even washed the linen and it was hanging up to dry! I can highly recommend this lovely couple to take care of your fur / feathered babies and your home while you are away. You will have total peace of mind. Lesley and Mark, Thank you so much for taking such great care of Hyella, It's a relief to know that he was happy and safe. Until the next ... MORE

Thank you Renette for such a lovely review. Hyella was such a sweetie to look after and your house was so easy to care for. We look forward to looking after him again in the future.
