2x Caring Travellers

68, Retired TAFE lecturer/carpenter

66, Retired optical dispenser

We are an active retired couple who have recently sold our 3 acre property/olive grove and have decided to travel in our motor home for a few years. We both love animals and Chris has previously worked as a vet nurse. Being a practical couple we have a good range of skills pertaining to landcare and house and garden maintenance. Hobbies include gardening, woodworking, hiking, golf and cycling. We are non smokers and lead a healthy lifestyle with fitness being a priority. Any house sits that we undertake would require parking for our 8 metre motor home. We have previously looked after properties for various friends caring for their dogs, horses and a 20 acre vineyard. As can be seen from our reviews we have a wide experience of caring for both domestic and farm animals. We look forward to any house sitting opportunities, especially those with animals.

David & Christine were superb. I could not have hoped for better people to look after my house & doggies. David also replaced the cord on my kettle & washed my car- and went beyond the call of duty and picked me up from the train at 11pm at night! They were in contact with me while I was away and sent me photos of the dogs on a walk. I had the best holiday as I was at ease in the knowledge the dogs & house were in excellent hands. They are incredibly lovely people who are living a ... MORE

It was our pleasure to have David and Chris as our house-sitters. They were very caring and paid attention to details with Mia and Watson and around the house. Both pets were happy and relaxed on our return and the house was beautifully clean and tidy. David and Chris love to walk and be active and they were easy to contact when we needed to get in touch. We highly recommend them as house-sitters.
LESLEY (Aberfoyle Park SA, Jun 2020 - 5 days)
It was hard to know who appreciated Dave and Chris more - the dogs or us?! They are a delightful couple who exceeded our expectations in terms of caring for Max & Merlin and leaving our house in perfect order. We were so grateful to have met them and are very keen for them to return whenever it fits their schedule. Anyone who secures Dave & Chris for a House sit will be very fortunate.
JANE (Underdale SA, Jun 2020 - 4 days)
Dave and Chris are amazing! House was so lovely and clean and Rusty relaxed (sleepy from walks which is great!) and happy on my return Would be thrilled to have them stay again as I know I can go away without any worry or concerns
TAMARA (Hindmarsh Island SA, May 2020 - 4 days)
We recently had David and Christine house sit for us for two weeks. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats. The animals adjusted well to them both (apart from our lovely little cat Dolly who is very shy). David and Christine did an excellent job during the sit, and communicated well with us via text messaging along with the occasional photo. The house was spotlessly clean on our return and the animals content and happy. I highly recommend David and Christine for any house sit that they may apply for.
MARGARET AND PAUL (Evandale TAS, Mar 2020 - 2 weeks)
It was an absolute delight to care for Bowie, Maisie, Tooie and Dolly. Thanks for the opportunity to enjoy your lovely home and garden.
Dave & Chris were absolutely lovely, couldn't have wished for better people to house sit and more importantly care for our fur babies. They kept us updated with a few pics and messages which was a great peace of mind. Would welcome them back with open arms and highly recommend them to house and pet sit.
ALISON (Kersbrook SA, Dec 2019 - 1 week 4 days)
David and chris went above and beyond as house sitters. Our dogs got walked everyday (even though we didnt ask them too.). The garden well maintained and the house perfect. Absolutely recommend. Thanks guys.xx
KAY (Launching Place VIC, Nov 2019 - 2 weeks)
Chris and Davis are a lovely couple who left our house in immaculate condition. They bonded with our dog Whisper, and took her for daily long walks and swims. This was not without its challenges as our dog is anxious at times around other dogs. Undeterred, they negotiated all hurdles to ensure a successful exercise. They were also sensitive to our needs and their company was an absolute delight. I cannot recommend them highly enough and I hope that they consider sitting for us in the future. ... MORE
GAIL (Eagle Point VIC, Oct 2019 - 1 week)
Chris and Dave were absolutely fantastic house and pet sitters. Our animals were treated the same way we treat them, with love and respect and part of the family. They were incredibly easy people to be around and in no time we felt like they had been long time friends. We came home to a happy little farm and it was very obvious how much our pets enjoyed their new friends. I highly recommend these easy going and extremely friendly people. Your home and your fury family couldn't be in ... MORE
KERRY (Wallarobba NSW, Oct 2019 - 1 week 4 days)
I cant talk highly enough of David and Christine. They were absolutely wonderful with my needy Dog!, my cat and 2 horses. From the first time I met them I knew I could go away and not worry about a thing. They kept in touch with me regularly, sending pics of my pets and updating me. My lawns were mowed and plants looked after, the house was really clean when I got home and my pets very happy and content. They are honest, reliable and trustworthy. They love animals and my animals loved them. ... MORE
SHARON (NORTH RICHMOND NSW, Sep 2019 - 1 week 6 days)
David & Chris are a lovely couple. They took great care of my home. In fact, it sparkled and shone when I came in the door. My border collie, Bindy was well cared for and they they took her for walks everyday. While I was away they kept me updated with photos and comments about Bindy and my garden, which was much appreciated. David came into Bathurst to pick me up on my return. They really did excellent job and I can thoroughly recommend them.
KAY (Oberon NSW, Sep 2019 - 3 weeks)
Thanks Kay, we enjoyed everything about our stay in your lovely cottage.
My dogs are still missing them and their walks. We had a bad storm and they repaired the damage. Came home to a lovely clean car. Kept in touch with photos of the dogs. Highly recommend.
LORRAINE (North Arm Cove NSW, Aug 2019 - 1 week 5 days)
It was really great to go away & not have to worry about my pets. Chris & Dave did a great job of looking after my fur babies. They didn't want for anything. I highly recommend their services. They did everything I asked & kept me informed on what my fur babies were up to.
LYN (Hervey Bay QLD, Jul 2019 - 5 days)
Chris and Dave went behind our expectations looking after our house, grounds and more important, the care given to Chelsea, our Golden Retriever. They gave Chelsea lots of love, exercise, care and continuous education, that a 10-11 month old puppy needs and asks for. The house was spotless and they went the extra mile to do some work around the grounds, with pruning, mulching, etc...even cleaning machines, tools and our 4x4! It was also a delight to have some news from home and Chelsea through ... MORE
HUGUES (Lake Macdonald QLD, Jun 2019 - 4 weeks)
Dave and Christine sat our farm for just over a week and did a brilliant job. We received regular email updates and photos while we were away and returned to a spotless house and happy, content animals. Very happy with our experience and certainly wouldn't hesitate to have Dave and Christine back again for future sits
NICOLA (Birdwood SA, Jun 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
Chris and Dave are delightful people who cared for our dogs and home like their own. We knew they'd really looked after Jasper and Quin because the dogs were more interested in Chris and Dave than us when we got home! Chris and Dave left our house immaculately clean and tidy - they'd even washed their bedding, mowed the lawn and cleaned the pool! We'd love Chris and Dave to look after our place next time we go away.
