Care n' Respect

66, Retired

We are a retired couple who sold our beachside home in Melbourne 4 years ago and have been travelling this wonderful country of Australia. We purchased a trailer sailer yacht and spent 2015 sailing around the Whitsunday Islands, enjoyed a 1 month house sit in Brisbane,then down the east coast arriving back in Melbourne to celebrate Christmas with our family. Throughout the southern summer we spend most of our time house sitting for family, friends, private referrals and also from house sitting sites.
In 2016 we decided to head west and spent 2 months in Perth house sitting for 2 families while they both enjoyed overseas holidays and then we were discovering the diverse and breath taking country of the Pilbra and the Kimberley. We spend the winter in Qld, enjoying some sailing as well as house sitting and return to Melbourne in November. We have had the pleasure of minding a variety of animals, whom have provided us with endless entertainment and fun with their different personalities and needs. Our 15 year old blue heeled passed away 4 years ago, so pet minding has been a perfect replacement for our hearts. We are very house proud and clean and look forward to some home duties after being on the road for long periods. We both love our gardening and my partner can fix just about anything, including pool maintenance and he is very confident with farm machinery having owned a beef cattle farm for 20 years. We offer the utmost respect for your all, giving you the peace of mind to enjoy your holiday. We would be delighted to offer our services to mind your pets and home. We have police checks and references available for viewing.
Please contact us if we can help.

Julie and Brendon were the perfect caretakers- they went over and beyond looking after our pets, house and garden. Treats were even bought for the animals, flowers fresh in vases greeted us on arrival home - everything clean as a whistle! Highly recommend this wonderful couple. So appreciative for their care and kindness.

Thank you for the e stay in your beautiful home, everything was just lovely and we enjoyed the company of all the animals
Julie and Brendon took amazing care of our cat and the house was absolutely spotless on our return. I can't recommend them highly enough! Such a joy to return home to a well cared for house, towels and sheets washed and the whole house tidied. Great communication and loved the photo updates!

No rating Julie and Brendon were fantastic housesitters! Fantastic communication from them while we were gone and when we arrived home, the house was very clean, they left beautiful flowers for us and even food in our fridge! Most importantly, our cat was obviously very well looked after. We would absolutely recommend Julie and Brendon for your house sit!!

No rating Julie and Brendon were amazing!! We can't thank them enough for taking such amazing and wonderful care of our house and two cats while we were away for two months. Julie sent lovely emails to update us on the cats and to check in, which was so nice to receive. They both took such wonderful care of our garden - even reviving my childrens' little gardens back to health which was SUCH a happy surprise for them to find. The yard looked amazing and I don't think I've ever seen my house so clean and ... MORE

No rating We had Julie and Brendon house sit for us in Dec 17. I cant express how happy I am that they came to stay. We have horses, dogs, cats, cows and a large garden. Everyone has so many different needs and diets, but they were all so happy and obviously looked after. Without a doubt the house was better looked after and cleaner than when I left. I just hope they might come back when i go away again. Thanks so much , regards Sue

No rating With 80 cattle, water pumps,electric fences and dog, we were a bit nervous about heading off on holiday. We needn't have worried. Julie and Brendon did a fantastic job and we came home to a property in better condition than we had left it. We certainly hope that they may be available next time we plan to get away.

No rating Julie and Brendon, Thank you for being the perfect house guests. From the moment we started corresponding the process was so easy with you both. Being our first time using a house sitter we are unsure what to expect but you made it so simple for us. It was lovely of you to take the time to meet with us before coming to stay as well. Then coming home to such a spotlessly clean house and happy little cat, we were just blown away at the effort you put in to making this such a great ... MORE
