My wife Reggie and I want to thank all the team at Aussie House Sitters for giving us the opportunity to have an absolute hoot of a time over the last 12 months doing house sits. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at all the various properties and we have fallen in love with a heap of different animals along the way that we have looked after. We recently bought an old Queenslander cottage in the bush which we will be renovating over the next 6 to 12 months. Once we have it ship shape we will again set off house sitting and this cottage will be our home base. Everyone at Aussie House Sitters has been incredibly helpful and supportive. We highly recommend you to everyone we meet. Thank you again for a wonderful year and we will be in touch with you once we are ready to do more house sits. Kind regards, Boyd and Reggie
