We have been using your site for the last three times we have been coming to Australia to visit with our family......each time we have managed to secure lovely house sits and have met people who have now become friends for life.This year we thought as more people are house sitting worldwide that we would join two other sites 'just in case' and guess what all our sits have come via your site yet again! We come over every other year from Gibraltar and house sitting is the only way we could afford to stay for five months each trip to visit our son and grand daughters. So, thank you, and as we are now fully booked we shall see you again next time! Many thanks and Bye for now, Kind Regards Patricia & Howard
