58, Retired

I am an easygoing guy who loves animals and gardening ,nature ,I am fairly fit for my age as I play table tennis ,badminton and walk regularly. I had not travelled much when I was younger and decided to travel and see this amazing country that we are lucky enough to call home.
Extensive gardening experience and a lifetime of pets including cats dogs fish and birds ,and I have minded lots of pets and animals since I started house sitting including 13 cats ,11 kittens and one Springer spaniel at a cattery on 10 acres, ,14 mixed pets on a small acreage,horses on ten acres dogs on 5 acres, semi wild rescue birds ,diabetic cats and dogs and cats that are old and some deaf and near blind and goats ,chickens and ducks.
Previously worked with Wesley disability employment in contract cleaning and doing large outdoor garden maintenance jobs as a supervisor with disabled adults as a working team.

I am an honest ,mature and caring person ,non smoker ,,clean and tidy and i always treat someone's home with respect .
I prefer house sits with animals and take pleasure in making them feel secure and happy.

We were privileged to have Peter sit our house for 6 weeks whilst we were overseas in mid 2019. He took great care of our house and more importantly our Dog Gemma. Peter is an enthusiastic gardener and he went over and above our expectations for garden maintenance. He communicated with us at appropriate intervals and left the house in fantastic condition. Having peace of mind about our house and dog whilst we were away was a major contributing factor to the enjoyment of our holiday. We would ... MORE

We were extremely lucky to have Peter as our house sitter, He was very caring with our dogs (2 of which are wild dingoes) and looked after my numerous plants. He house sat for us for 4 weeks and did a marvellous job. Even planted a winter garden patch for us. Whilst we were away he sent regular updates. I highly recommend Peter- you will not find a better house sitter :)

No rating We recently engaged Peter to mind our dog, Gemma, for just over two weeks while we were away. We returned to a happy dog, clean house and a neat garden. Peter had asked if there were any bigger gardening jobs we would like done to help pass the time, which we did have and these were executed extremely well. Thankyou Peter.
CLARE (Drysdale VIC, Mar 2019 - 2 weeks 3 days)
I have no problem reviewing Peters house sitting and the way he cares for our pets. He spent several weeks looking after us and went far and above what any sitter has done for us over the years. The pets adore him the garden never looked better at this time of year. and our home was cared for, I dont know how he managed it but he also cut wood for winter..I sincerely thank you Peter and hope you will come again, being single and of a certain age lol I was cautious to use a stranger, and a male ...

CAROLAN (Blewitt Springs SA, Jan 2019)
We were extremely happy with Peter as our housesitter. he did an amazing Job looking after our Pets whilst we were overseas. As well as establishing our back garden with plants, and establishing a vegetable garden. The house was spotless I have used house sitters before, but have to say Peter was the best I have had. My dogs loved him and seemed happy when ever we face timed. He took them for walks they loved along the beach. What a Guy" I highly recommend him, and would welcome him back if we ... MORE
DIANA (Munno Para SA, Dec 2018 - 1 month 3 weeks)
Peter came to our rescue after a previous house sitter suddenly, unexpectedly and at late notice was unable to sit for the dates when we were going away. On meeting Peter, he was great to get on with and put our minds at ease, assuring us of his reliablility, so we booked him in. True to his word, Peter was very reliable, Peter had the house neat and tidy on return from holidays and our 3 dogs were well looked after and what do you know, you can teach an old dog new tricks, one of my dogs was ...

DANIEL (St Marys SA, Oct 2018 - 2 weeks 3 days)
After meeting Peter we felt reassured we had the best person for our house sit, and left our house for 5 weeks in good hands with Peter. We had regular photos of our animals and reassurance on their well being. Peter went far and beyond caring for our house with pool care and sourcing wood for the open fire and high pressure cleaning our out door concrete pavement. Our house was left extremely tidy with very happy and well cared for dogs, chooks and sheep. The garden was neat and watered. ... MORE

No rating Peter looked after my house for six weeks while we were in the UK. He made great friends with Clancy and Pepper (the dog and cat), and the house and especially garden were very well tended to during his house sit. I have no hesitation in recommending him!
CAROL (Hallett Cove SA, Jul 2018 - 1 month 2 weeks)
No rating Peter looked after our small rural property for six weeks whilst we were in Europe for six weeks. On our return the dog, goats and chickens were happy and well (the important thing) and the property had been well looked after. Peter had even cut up extra fire wood so there was adequate available on our return. We would be happy to have Peter house sit for us again if the need arose.
CHRISTOPHER (Blewitt Springs SA, Jun 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating As this was the first time I had used Aussie House Sitters I was somewhat apprehensive having a stranger in my home, but I need not have worried, Peter took very good care of my house both inside and out. I came home to a clean and tidy house, well fed and happy pets and a well tended garden and patio area. Thank you, Peter!! I have no hesitation in recommending Peter as a house sitter for anyone who is planning to go on holidays and needs a responsible person to care for their house and pets.
DEBORAH (Moana SA, May 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating Peter kindly looked after our house and pets when we were on our holiday. When we came back, the lawn looked green and neat, the dogs and cat looked happy. Apart from transplanting some flowers into pots to make the house look prettier, he even bought and planted some flowers in our front yard! Also, our neighbours told me that he was very friendly and nice to them, sharing the produce from our garden with them (which is our policy of maintaining a caring community).

No rating Peter has been a great sitter, Having our house sat for the first time we were fairly apprehensive. We were comfortable with Pete's. referral .The dogs were well looked after as was our main requirement. The lawns were kept manicured and Pete chain sawed enough wood to last the next couple of years Pete is a real handyman. The property has been well looked after and would recommend him to anybody. who wishes there house sat.
BERT AND LYN (Bermagui NSW, Dec 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating After being let down by booked sitters with ony a few weeks to go before our already paid-for cruise, we were thrilled to be able to get Peter to step in and save us from any more stress. Peter is a genuine, caring animal lover, and our ''kids'' are not jut a simple dog and cat and budgie. We have 2 dogs, one of them old, deaf and bad sight, 2 cats- one of which had to have Insulin shots twice a days with her food, we also have a mixture of birds, from seed eaters, to omnivore and ...
