Our first experience with house sitters and we are hooked. Lesley and Fred were so fantastic. They loved our dogs like they were their own. I think our Betty is still missing them! They kept in great contact whilst we were away. They gave us our space as they arrived and we were getting ready to go but were also friendly and interested in our family and our travels. We would have them back anytime.

We would recommend Fred and Lesley to everyone. It is a pity that they are not available for our next trip but we are going to plan ahead better. Our dog Molly became quite attached although she was very happy to welcome us home. Fred and Lesley were very thoughtful in everything they looked after as could be seen in the state of our property. Very good sitters.

Fred & Lesley were wonderful house sitters. The pets were thoroughly spoilt and loved the attention they received. The house and garden were cared for and just as we had left it. I would highly recommend Fred & Lesley who are very friendly and approachable.

No rating We can't recommend Lesley, Fred and Darby enough . The amazing job they did for us to look after all our crew. We ask a lot of them with Lambs and Cows having babies . They spoiled every single one of our animals . The garden was looked after as well . They even planted some seedlings for us . I hope to see them again soon and have a bbq with them and repay them a little bit of their kindness . Our trip was stress free because of them . Thank you so very much . We have them back in a ...

No rating We were so lucky to have Lesley and Fred farm sit for us in June 2017 when we went overseas. They were so friendly and great with all the animals, especially our dogs (they brought their own and everyone got along great). I think they especially liked our pigs Peppa and Boris and our dairy cows. It was a big job feeding all the cattle, goats, pigs, chickens and dogs but they did an awesome job for which we are forever grateful. They have a standing invitation to stay with us in Armidale as ... MORE

No rating Many Thanks again Fred and Lesley for looking after our farm and animals so well during a very cold Burra winter. Our dogs (Charlie and Dougal) were particularly well looked after and sorry to see you leave. We enjoyed our travels all the more knowing that our house and farm were in such experienced hands. We would be delighted if you could return for a farmsit on another occasion.

No rating Lesley, Fred and their two labs looked after my home and menagerie for 5 weeks. I cant thank them enough. My animals are the world to me so their care was very important. I didnt get the chance to meet Lesley and Fred before I left so was only able to leave notes and have phone conversations. I was so happy to finally get home and to find my critters all looking as if I'd never left was great. Big, big thankyou Lesley and Fred and happy and safe travels in the future. kindest regards, Lois
