We have now been enjoying membership at Aussie Housesitters for six years and have had some amazing times sitting around Australia. We spend on average 22-24 weeks housesitting each year and have built up some wonderful relationships with the people we sit for. We now have seven regular clients in Noosa who book us a year in advance and their dogs never forget us. It is a joy to be greeted by pets who remember us and are thrilled that we have returned each time we go back to their homes. Thankyou team at AussieHousesitters. You run a great business and maintain a reliable and consistent database that’s user-friendly and always reliable. You’ve helped to make our retirement a happy and successful one. Anne & Craig
