Reliable, responsible, organised and adventurous, we have frequently provided house sitting and animal care for family and friends . For many years an aged, arthritic Ridgeback, a young enthusiastic black labrador and a 14 year old tortoiseshell were regular overnight guests at our home. In the past we have owned a variety of dogs, cats, chooks and cattle, plus the occasional pony.

In recent winters we have completed numerous jobs through Aussie House Sitters, and also several privately arranged sits. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, met some very warmhearted people and fell head over heels in love with many endearing animals. For us, the most difficult part of the sit is leaving our new furry or feathered friends!

As we take great pride in the quality of the care we provide, it has been wonderful to receive very positive feedback, particularly in relation to the condition in which we leave our hosts' houses, and the way in which we quickly developed firm but caring relationships with each individual animal. We are a house proud, non-smoking, easy going couple who enjoy regular walking/ hiking and relaxing in our own leafy garden when we are not off exploring. Always seeking new traveling experiences which will further expand our horizons, house sitting/pet care ticks all the boxes for us.

Our mission is for you to embark on a worry free break, knowing that your home and animals will be receiving the highest quality, loving care in your absence.

In addition to our Aussie House Sitters reviews, further recommendations and references can be readily provided. In our previous working life we regularly undertook the Police checks required by our professional standards body.

Alan and Jill were wonderful sitters. Communication prior to the sit was excellent, particularly when we needed to shift our dates they were very accommodating and understanding and happy to work with us. When showing them both around the property we knew quickly that our place and animals (children) were in great care. Throughout the sit Jill and Alan kept in touch with us which was wonderful! We loved receiving images of our Kelpies and knowing everything was going well, it really allowed us ... MORE

Alan & Jill were the perfect sitters. Our greyhound Gus fell in love with them both straight away. All communications were easy & straightforward & they are just lovely people. We got home to a spotless house, a relaxed & happy dog & a jar of homemade tomato sauce. Cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks so much Alan & Jill!

Thank you Alan and Jill for a wonderful house sit. We had wished for the perfect house sitters, and we found you! Came home to a beautiful clean home and very happy pets. Highly recommend Alan and Jill for any future house sits :) We appreciate your stay both - thank you

Everything was in perfect order when we arrived home! Possibly a little better than we left it! Our pets, a poodle, chooks and rabbits were all lovingly cared for, especially our poodle as he requires company! I have no doubts in recommending Alan and Jill for house sitting. They communicated very well which put us at ease immediately. You can go away and be very confident that your home and pets are well cared for!

Alan & Jill house sat for our Staffie and our chickens for 3 and a half weeks in July/Aug 2017. They were FANTASTIC. Our animals were beautifully looked after and we came home to a beautiful, clean house. We couldn't have been happier with them. We 100% recommend them for any house sitting jobs.

No rating Alan and Jill are wonderful housesitters. Great communication prior to and during the sit. I enjoyed receiving photo updates of how my kitty was getting on. It was obvious they have an affinity with the pet they are looking after. I came home to a happy cat and an impeccable home.
NINA (Scarborough QLD, Jul 2017 - 5 days)
We have used many house sitters on the site for the last 4 years. Jill and AIan are the best! Which is quite remarkable considering this was their first go at sitting. Our 17 year old cat was so well looked after - fed his favorite food, given his daily medications, groomed - that it was lovely not to worry about him and he bonded with them so well he missed them when they left. Jill and Alan were in constant communication with us and we were even sent photos of the cat. When we returned our ... MORE
