65, retired builder


My partner Mary and I are animal lovers and very house proud. Have been self employed in the building and maintenance industry most of my working life. Good with mechanical, plumbing, welding etc
Mary has been self employed in the fashion industry and worked in hospitality and also sole charge of country store. (loves art)

Worked around Australia for seven years on farms, outback stations, resorts etc

We are semi retired and very industrious. Live remote so love the outdoors but also love the city for a change.

No rating John and Mary looked after Molly, our dog, and the house for three weeks. Prior to our going away John was in contact with us as this was good to know there was a person at the end of the house sitting advertisement, and helped ease our minds. Our main concern was Molly and she was well looked after, but the house and garden was well cared for also. Would I recommend John and Mary, yes, most certainly. Thank you to you both once again.

Would highly recommend!! I returned to very happy dogs and an absolutely spotless house. Cleaner than I could have done myself! They even looked after my dog that had come on heat with no problems what so ever. So very thankful and highly highly regarded as great house sitters!

Mary and John looked after our home including lots of extra jobs and left it spotless. Our dog Fletcher was healthy and happy and they went the extra mile with our cat Tzar ... picking g him up from vet ICU then giving him twice daily medications! John also offered to drop us to airport very early which was much appreciated. Would have no hesitation in recommending.

No rating John and Mary very recently house and pet sat for us .We felt completely comfortable on meeting up with this lovely couple beforehand, our dog Bella bonded well. We were away for a week and came home to a very happy well looked after dog,sparkling clean house and well maintained property. We would highly recommend this couple and hope to see them again. Thankyou Sue and Chris, Coomera Waters

No rating Mary and John are a fantastic couple! So friendly and helpful. I spent 3 days with them before we left and they were so great to be with I didn't want to go away! They did a great job with the house and garden, and our animals, all above and beyond what I expected. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you so very much for everything :)

No rating A huge thank you to John and Mary for house sitting for us for a week whilst we were away. Our two Labradors were very well looked after and our house was sparkling when we returned. Would recommend John and Mary in a heartbeat. Thank you both.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
