A & B Team - Annette & Brendon

37, Bookkeeper

41, Programmer

Hi there,

Hubby and I are on a mission! We are doing an 'Around Australia' tour - and although not grey yet, we will be nomads from June 2019 onwards for the next 2 years, and practicing minimalism at the same time.

Can you help us with accommodation while we help you with house and pet sitting?

To map out our route for the next 24 months, it would ROUGHLY go as follows, although nothing is set in stone:

Jun-Oct 2019: NSW, ACT (booked)
Nov-Dec 2019 & Feb-Mar 2020: VIC (need housesits)
Jan 2020: TAS (booked)
Apr-Jun 2020: SA
Jul-Sep 2020: Southern WA
Oct-Dec 2020: Northern WA
Jan-Feb 2021: Darwin area
Mar-Jun 2021: Northern QLD
Jul-Sep 2021: Southern QLD

If you live in these areas, and are planning a trip during these periods, please let us know so that we can map our route and consider the possibilities. We would prefer engagements of about 3-8 weeks in length.

About us:

I am a bookkeeper who can work from anywhere as long as there's internet, and I like changes and breaks away from the everyday life. I also love exploring new areas and would use any excuse (like housesitting) to see new areas, especially walking new areas (DOGS!).

Brendon is a software developer and he is more sedentary (CATS!) and would respect your property as he would his own.. We are both complete and utter bird lovers.

Sometimes Mum, Louise, may be joining us. She is a gardener and will keep your plants in tip-top shape. Very fit and adventure loving, yet a peaceful soul when it comes to small pets.

We both love animals and had pets growing up, but we live in a city unit, so no pets allowed. Believe me that we would care for yours as we would care for our own.

We are undertaking this trip to see more of the beautiful country, to decide where we want to buy a house, and to save up for said house. And why not? No kids means less restrictions, for sure, so we are making the most of it.

We are easygoing and responsible, and above all, we are flexible. Happy to provide more info if needed.

We feel very blessed to have found Annette and Brendon (and Louise) to care for our pets and our home. They are lovely warm people, and this reflected in their care of our beloved pets, Milo was a very happy boy receiving loads of cuddles and attention. We were updated regularly, including pics, and Brendon even managed to tame Cookie the bitey birdy lol. Nothing was too much trouble (even when when we missed our flights), We would happily welcome Annette and Brendon into our home again. We are ... MORE

Annette and her family were great dog-sitters! Annette was a great communicator, and looked after Holly very well, after a handover from our friends. We fortunately got to meet Annette upon our return, and we came home to a happy dog and a clean house. They were very responsible and capable sitters, and we would recommend them highly. We asked them to sit for us again next year, but they were already booked up!

We found Louise and Annette very reliable and we had every confidence that our dogs would be well looked after. Our house was very clean and tidy on our return and our pups were happy too.

Wow what can I say, Both Louise and Annette are beautiful people, they cared for both our home and fur baby's, Missy mudslide had to have her eyes treated several times a day on return her eyes looked amazing. we would have them back in a heart beat. thank you so much for the love you showed both home and babies
JENNY (Albion Park NSW, Sep 2019 - 1 week 5 days)
Annette and Brendon are a lovely couple who popped in to meet us and the animals before we left on our seven week holiday, and immediately we felt they were the right fit. Communication was always quick and they kept us informed (with photo's) on the menagerie of animals. We came back to some very contented fur babies and a spotless house. I'd highly recommend Annette and Brendon for your next house sit.

Annette and Brendan were absolutely brilliant. We left them with a recovering cruciate ligament, dog, and a cat recovering from a stroke! The house was beautifully clean, washing done and on the line and a small roast left for our dinner. It was delicious. I highly recommend them as caring, kind, responsible people.
CAROLYN (Highton VIC, Jul 2019 - 2 weeks)
Many thanks to Annette & Brendan for accepting our request for a dog/house sit whilst we were away for 6 weeks. We arrived home to 2 very relaxed dogs who subsequently spent the remainder of the day by the front door waiting for Annette & Brendan to return. We in turn were able to relax during our time away knowing everything at home was in very good hands. We highly recommend Annette & Brendan & would love for them to mind our 2 fur kids again.

Garden Maintenance

Green garden!

Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
