We are empty-nesters that have been travelling Australia in our van commencing 27 December 2019. We will be travelling and can do intermittent house-sitting for all of 2020. We're in Tassie then until 13 Mar 2020 and opens to offers :)

Currently looking for a housesit from Kiama (roughly) to the central coast areaanywhere in the time window from the 18th April to the 8th May - anything from a few days to a week or so would work for us. So if you need a break for the second half of the school holidays we can probably help out

Also. Somewhere in the vicinity of Coff Harbour (+/- 100ks or so) starting late May would be great.

Our rough itinerary is:

Queensland - June through July
NT - August through September
WA - October through November
SA - December.
We prefer housesits of a week or less so we can keep on the move :).

We both love animals and are not travelling with any pets so would welcome looking after yours. We are very tidy couple and have done renovations on a couple of properties so can handle most maintenance situations - previous pool owners, lived on acreage so can handle minor fencing issues and handle a ride-on. We will have a caravan so would need somewhere to park it - on street can be fine for shorter stays in a nice wide street. Coming from small acreage we have lots of experience with gardens having had our own vege garden as well.

Your home will be well kept and consistently clean for you to seamlessly return home to after your time away. Referees can be provided as well.

Lovely couple. Excellent communication prior, during and after house sitting. House spotless upon return, and a very happy puppy dog. Bonus garden care as well!

A very friendly couple who were excited to house sit for us. We had constant communication before the sit, we were excited to meet Peta and Dave as our conversations and text messages were so positive. Our house was perfect on return and our 2 dogs, 2 fish and cat were fit and well. All plants, indoor and out were in perfect condition! I would highly recommend Dave and Peta to anyone requiring their 'family' and home to be looked after!

Dave and Peta communicated well with us. They left the house clean and neat and most importantly our cat Jag was happy and content when we returned. We would have no hesitation in asking them back.
DIANA & COLIN (Garden Suburb NSW, Dec 2019 - 4 days)
No rating Dave was a great housesitter who looked after our pets with love and care (I think they miss him!). Our house was immaculate when we returned and he'd even fixed a broken gate we'd put up with for years. The special touch was a vase of flowers ready for our return when we got home. I felt an added bonus (only for those in the Newcastle area) was Dave's willingness to pop around and meet us well in advance of our trip. That meeting gave us the confidence we needed to enjoy our break away. Can't ... MORE

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
