5 Star Considerate and capable housesitters



Dear homeowners,

We have successfully completed over 40 house sits across the Aussie House Sitters, Trusted House Sitters and Mind A Home websites. We have received 5 star reviews for all of these house sits.

We have looked after over 50 dogs, 19 cats, and numerous farm animals including chickens, pigs, sheep and one sit included 28 horses and 12 cows on 60 acres in the Upper Hunter Valley. We have loved each of our sits for different reasons. We usually look for sits for a minimum of 2 weeks, but we do consider shorter sits to fill in any gaps that we may have.

We retired from our professional careers in 2017 to enable us to travel. Ian is a qualified accountant and worked in the music and TV industries and Lloyd was employed as a General Manager for a large Australian manufacturer.

We are none smokers who are clean, reliable, punctual and we promise to look after your home as we would our own. You will return to a clean and tidy home and very happy pets.

You can follow our house sitting adventures on instagram @PetSitBoys.

We required a house/pet sitter for a period of 7 weeks and we really hit the jackpot with Ian and Lloyd. Ian and Lloyd sent us regular pictures and updates and handled everything that came up over the stay (including a broody hen!).They say the best thing about going away is coming home and in this case that was so true, the house was immaculate, the pets were thriving and other personal touches were most appreciated after being away for so long. We would highly recommend Ian and Lloyd as I ... MORE
LAUREN (BITTERN VIC, Mar 2019 - 1 month 3 weeks)
Ian and Lloyd were the first ones to respond to our house-sitting request and their profile and recommendations sounded amazing, so we went with them. They didn't disappoint. The rapport they quickly built with our three dogs really delighted us and set our mind at ease about going away. We received daily photos and reports about the house, garden and dogs, and little heart-warming anecdotes of what they'd discovered to do or see in our region, a region we love and which they relished ...

We cannot believe how lucky we have been to meet Ian and Lloyd and then to have managed to secure them for another housesit in May/June this year (our fourth!). It's a new house and location to the last 3 sits but as usual Ian and Lloyd knew exactly what to do to ensure we had a completely worry free holiday. Also as usual, we returned to a lovely clean home, healthy plants and a dinner ready to put in the oven for dinner. How very generous they are! Our animals seem to be missing them since ... MORE
TRISH AND MIKE (Auchenflower QLD, May 2021 - 2 weeks 3 days - 1 of 4 endorsements from this owner )
We honestly could not have had a better experience than housesitting from Ian and Lloyd. We have a very challenging Dog that required several medications around the clock and particular care and so we were naturally worried about leaving him. Ian and Lloyd not only had prior experience here but handled this with ease while keeping us updated with loving photos and messages the whole time. Not only did they love and care for our dog and cat, pool and gardens, but we also came home to a very ... MORE

Thank you Ian and Lloyd - how blessed was I to have crossed paths with you both! Meeting you before my holidays, I knew straight away my house and Reggie would be in very good hands. I received regular communications and photos while away and returned home to an extremely clean house and gardens - and a very, very happy Reggie. Ian and Lloyd come very highly recommended!
JO (Upper Coomera QLD, Feb 2021 - 9 days)
Ian and Lloyd were fantastic. They took such good care of my little fur baby Sadie and went above and beyond. Sadie loved exploring with them and visiting all the coffee shops in the area on their walks. Communication was great and I loved getting regular updates from them on Sadie's adventures. My apartment and plants were very well looked after and I don't think that my home has ever been as clean as it was on my return. Thank you Ian and Lloyd for taking such great care of everything while I ... MORE
KATY (West End QLD, Dec 2020 - 2 months)
Once again, we were delighted that Ian and Lloyd were able to pet and house sit for us. We can't believe how fortunate we have been to find them and work hard to fit our activities around their availability. We especially love the regular communication and photos they send of our animals while we are away. It is very reassuring. Each time Ian and Lloyd have sat for us we have returned to a lovely clean house, maintained pool, watered plants and most importantly, happy and healthy critters. ... MORE

Ian and Lloyd were outstanding Doggy and House Sitters. I feel extremely privileged to have been able to utilize their wonderful skills on this, our first foray into using a sitting service. From start to finish they were nothing short of professional and friendly, Daily updates of our Doggy were very much appreciated as we were away for 7 weeks. The communication with Lloyd and Ian whilst you are away gives you a sense of complete trust in their service. We came back to a beautifully clean ... MORE
SUSAN (Warriewood NSW, Nov 2019 - 7 weeks)
Ian and Lloyd are the perfect housesitters. We felt completely at home with them on first meeting and we had regular communication about the pets during our time away. I think our mini-dachshund is missing their care and walks twice a day! On our return we found our house spotless and supplies in the fridge including a home-cooked quiche and slice. We would love to have Ian and Lloyd housesit again for us in the near future
ALEX (Norman Park QLD, Nov 2019 - 4 weeks)
This is our second review of Ian and Lloyd but I couldn't not comment. We returned home today after a wonderful holiday overseas which was made so because we were 100% confident that our much loved animals and our home were in safe and caring hands. We were met today by 2 beaming dogs and 2 sassy happy cats, a beautifully clean house, a very well maintained garden and, a wonderful lunch which we shared during a very thorough handover. Thank you Aussie Housesitters for introducing us to Ian and ... MORE
TRISH (Cumbalum NSW, Oct 2019 - 3 weeks 1 day - 3 of 4 endorsements from this owner )
We highly recommend Ian & Lloyd as house/pet sitters. While away we received regular updates and photos of our Labrador Bronte's outings and happiness while we were away. She was exceptionally well looked after and she is now missing them. We arrived home to a clean house, mowed lawn and prepared dinner which was so nice after a long journey. We hope they may be able to come back another time when we are travelling but also hope to keep in touch anyway.
AMANDA (Eltham NSW, Feb 2019 - 4 weeks)
Ian and Lloyd were truly amazing house sitters. Our cat was looked after wonderfully and we were kept up to date with posts on Instagram and texts. We arrived home to a spotlessly clean house and breakfast in the fridge for the morning after getting home very late from an overseas trip. To top it of, there was a delicious sweet slice in the fridge, which I'm ashamed to say is nearly all gone in less than 24hrs! Thank you so much guys. You made our trip a lot less stressful.
ZITA (Thrumster NSW, Jan 2019 - 2 weeks 2 days)
Where does one start. These guys are simply the best. We holidayed overseas for an entire month. During this time Ian and Lloyd kept us up to date via what's app with pics and blogs from their Instagram sight of our little dogs day. The pics were so appreciated not to mention entertaining. We returned after our month to an amazingly perfectly kept home. In fact we mentioned it looked even tidier than we left it. Ian and Lloyd are definately true to their word they put our pets interests first ... MORE
MAREE (West Ballina NSW, Dec 2018 - 4 weeks)
Great friendly guys, came around for dinner the night before we left to meet all the animals and the family which gave us huge peace of mind. Took great care of the house, garden and pets and sent us daily updates which was amazing and even had dinner waiting for us when we got back. Would definately ask them again if they were available.

PRISCILA (North Turramurra NSW, Nov 2018)
This was our first experience using Aussiehousesitters and we were nervous about leaving our animals and home in the care of people we didnt know. Once we met Ian and Lloyd however we were immediately at ease. During our handover they were very thorough in clarifying our needs and expectations and went out of their way to reassure us. They communicated with us daily with text messages and photos and took such very good care of our pets, house and garden and we were able to enjoy a break. They ... MORE
TRISH (Cumbalum NSW, Oct 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day - 4 of 4 endorsements from this owner )
I cannot recommend Ian & Lloyd highly enough. They took to Lucy from the moment they met her, and provided me with almost daily photos of her adventures [she seemed to be enjoying herself way too much, just saying!]. I then returned to a lovely clean home, & a beautifully tidy yard. I can't thank them enough for the great care they took of my pooch and my home. We both look forward to having them back when our schedules align. (I'd like to give them a 1☆ rating so I could keep them to ... MORE
