We are both retired and experienced house sitters.

We have done several house sits during our travels around OZ in previous years and recently while back on the road, reviews attached. We are now back home in Queensland and looking forward to travelling again as soon as the Queensland border is opened.

We are non-smokers, take great pride in our home and would care for your home with the same respect as we like to keep our surroundings clean and tidy.

We have cared for chooks, cats, dogs, fish, horses, goats, alpacas and farm animals. We enjoy the country life and atmosphere, but we are also open to all other areas.

We no longer have any pets of our own as they have passed on so this is a good opportunity for us to have contact with your pets or farm animals and enjoy their company, giving them a lot of love and attention.

We are experienced at looking after swimming pools (having one ourselves) and are keen gardeners, having lived on acreage. We are also happy to mow your lawn, if required.

If we can be of help to you in looking after your home and pets so you can have some time away, we look forward to hearing from you in the near future. We would also be happy to meet with you prior to the house sit or alternatively we could be in contact by Messenger.

Cheers Lee & John

Lee & John are fabulous! From the first moment we spoke to them we knew we had struck gold! They bravely took on our assignment - a large acreage home with many animals - horses, dogs, cats, chickens, bird - and when we got back after 2 weeks away the place was immaculate and all the animals happy. We are so grateful to Lee & John - we hope they will agree to stay and house - animal sit for us again!!
JUSTINE (Verrierdale QLD, Sep 2019 - 2 weeks)
Looking after Justine & Petes' property and animals was a pleasure. They made us feel welcome in their beautiful home and their animals were a joy to look after. We would certainly return should the occasion arise and if you like a rural atmosphere which is not far from all amenities, we would ... MORE
Lee and John looked after our two dogs and home for 5 days. They were a lovely couple, who communicated promptly and ended their visit with a thank you note and flowers arranged from the garden - nice touch! We would definitely recommend Lee and John.
RUSSELL (Buderim QLD, Jun 2020 - 5 days)
We had 5 days at Russell & Debs' place at Buderim. Their location is handy to Maroochydore and Mooloolaba beaches which we enjoyed visiting. Their two small dogs were a pleasure to look after. A bonus was having the fire place to keep warm and cosy on the cooler nights. A nice place to housesit.
No rating Lee and John looked after our house, garden and guinea fowl while we were away recently. We believed that our place was in good hands, and this was verified when we got home. We would recommend Lee and John to take care of your place, and would welcome them back to ours should the occasion arise
ADRIENNE & JOHN (Tully QLD, Aug 2019 - 11 days)
No rating Sooo we left with a relatively clean house - albeit slighty watermarked windows - and came back to a cleaner house and an even cleaner windows!! Lee and John are currently housesitting our neighbours now and our dogs run joyfully to them following their two weeks of being pampered by them (the dogs not the humans). It was our first experience with a housesitter and if these two are anything to go by we will be looking many more times as the experience was fantastic. Thanks Lee and John!
GRANT (Cape Burney WA, Apr 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating John and Lee looked after our house and two kelpies from 30 March to 14 April, 2018. Not only did John and Lee look after everything so wonderfully, but they went out of their way to do jobs that we never got around to doing. And, they are the nicest people which we are so glad we have met. Even our neighbours loved them. Thank you John and Lee and all the best for the rest of your journey.
THERESA (Geraldton WA, Mar 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating Lee and John took wonderful care of our home and garden last month (despite the unusual run of very hot weather). The animals were well cared for and loved even though Scotty, being a puppy, got up to mischief! We were regularly kept up to date with everything. The house was spotless on our return. We would not hesitate to use them again if the opportunity arose and would highly recommend them to anyone needing their services.
LIBBY (Clare SA, Jan 2018 - 2 weeks)
No rating Lee & John did a fabulous job looking after our home and pet dog at very short notice,as we had to travel interstate on family business.They took very good care of our pet,home and gardens as if they were their own.Really appreciated their updates and ability to handle any issues as they arose.We would not hesitate to recommend Lee & John as house sitters or to ask them to house sit for us again.
MARK / SANDRA (Warrnambool East VIC, Dec 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating John and Lee made our " first time" using Aussie House Sitters a wonderful experience as we had always used a pet resort in the past. Our cats were so relaxed and care free this time with John and Lee to care for them at home . John and Lee arranged to meet us, our cats and get a run down of our home before we left which was great. What a fantastic, friendly couple and very reassuring, considering we were about to leave our home and babies in the care of complete strangers. John and Lee ... MORE
KAY (Skye VIC, Nov 2017 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating We were so lucky to land Lee and John at very short notice to housesit for a week. They looked after everything perfectly, and we enjoyed our break with the confidence of knowing our critters, garden and home were in good hands, and of course everything was spotless when we got home. They even looked after the neighbours lawns as he was away! Thank you Lee and John - I feel sad for us you are heading off around Australia for a year, but look forward to having you back after that whenever it ... MORE
HARRIET (Amamoor QLD, Sep 2017 - 1 week)
No rating John and Lee looked after our home and pets for two weeks in what was possibly the wettest time we had experienced for some time. They did a great job caring for our elderly animals including 2 dogs, 1 cat and little pony. As we live on a farm there were chooks to take care of and some sheep which were lambing to keep an eye on. They did an excellent job with all the pets happy and healthy when we returned. The house was very clean and tidy and John had even gone to the trouble of splitting ... MORE
KAREN (Beechworth VIC, Aug 2016 - 2 weeks 2 days)
No rating We recently had John & Lee house sit our two very spoilt dogs and I have to say we were more than happy with them. The dogs were not stressed at all when we got home, in fact I am sure they were looking for John & Lee :) They also looked after our home with respect and we came home to a beautifully cleaned home with fresh flowers in a vase, a lovely homecoming. Needless to say we were very happy, they were a lovely, friendly couple and would recommend them to anyone that needs a caring, happy & ... MORE
SANDY (Porepunkah VIC, Aug 2016 - 4 weeks)
No rating John and Lee stayed at our home for 5 weeks and looked after our two indoor cats. They did a great job...the cats hardly noticed our absence and the house was even cleaner than how we left it. John and Lee are very personable and good people. I would not hesitate to recommend them or to seek them out as house sitters in the future.
MICHELE (Peregian Springs QLD, Jun 2016 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating Lee and John looked after our two cats and home over Easter time 2016. We returned home to two happy cats, a clean home and even the yard mowed! It was lovely to meet Lee and John and I would happily recommend this lovely, easy going couple to anyone requiring their home adn pets looked after. All the best! Judy and Dave
JUDY (Kirwan QLD, Mar 2016 - 4 days)
No rating We could not have asked for better house-sitters. Thank you both so much for looking after our house and dog so well. The house was cleaner than when we left it, trees had grown so much too thanks to all the care and watering that John and Lee did as well as a very happy and healthy dog. Thank you both very much and hope we cross paths again in the future.
LEIGH (Lara VIC, Dec 2015 - 3 weeks)
No rating How lovely to go away and leave your home and critters with such trusted people. Lee & John were lovely and the fact that our dog Pixie liked them, was a good start. We have a small hobby farm, but all animals and property were in fabulous condition. Hopefully in the future they will come back and sit for us.
SUE & MICHAEL (Mount Eccles VIC, Nov 2015 - 2 weeks)
No rating John & Lee are a lovely couple and brilliant sitters. We would highly recommend them to anyone requiring this service. We look forward to welcoming them should they wish to make any future visits as friends!
JOHN (West Kempsey, NSW, Sep 2015 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating We found John and Lee to be reliable and committed as housesitter/petsitters. They were required to feed our 2 horses a miniature pony and our loveable dog plus our chooks and 2 birds. They did a fantastic job and all our animals were very happy. We came home to an immaculate house and yards. We would be very happy to have them back everytime we went away as I know they looked after our house and animals as I do. I would highly recommend them.
ROBYN (Matcham, NSW, Jul 2015 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating We knew as soon as we met John and Lee that our house and property would be in good hands while we were away. We returned to find our animals flourishing and our house and grounds impeccably cared for. We could not have found more responsible, diligent, willing, caring and friendly house sitters.
ALEXA (SE QLD, Jul 2015)
No rating We were very very happy and lee and john were lovely people and we were so at ease and had no concerns at all with anything. Put our mind at rest as we both needed a well earnt holiday. Dogs were very happy, walked and provided a lot of care and love. Highly recommended sitter Kylie. Century 21 bowen.
