Caring and Dependable Sitters

Retired Lawyer & Office Administrator

We are a retired, active, non-smoking couple who are dedicated house sitters and pet carers. We appreciate that house sitting allows us to explore Australia as a local, getting to know new areas in depth.

We also enjoy meeting and caring for pets, getting to know them, taking them for walks, cuddling and spoiling them.

Other things we like are walking, golfing, bird watching and all things that nature has to offer.

As home owners for 20+ years, we are aware of the need for keeping the house clean and gardens maintained especially during the hotter months.

As we are experienced house sitters, and pet carers, as well as keen gardeners , you can rest assured that your beloved pets and home will be well cared for while you are away on your own adventure.

We are also experienced at looking after pools and lawn mowing, including ride-ons.

"Phil and Di have looked after our house and our little Maltese Terrier dog on several occasions over the past few years. We felt complete peace of mind that all was thoroughly cared for and that our dog Merlo was very happy and settled while we were away. On each occasion the house was as clean and tidy as we left it, and the garden had been well maintained. The welcome home dinner was the icing on the cake! They are lovely people- very caring, reliable and friendly".

"Hi, Kaylene and I would like to thank Phil and Di for the fabulous job they did looking after our house and especially our rottie, Savvy. Our house was well cared for over the 7 weeks we were away, and they provided regular updates.
Savvy was especially happy with Phil and Di...and am sure she misses them greatly.
Kaylene and I would not hesitate in providing a glowing reference for them at any time."
Steve and Kaylene, Calwell, ACT. December 2014.

No rating One of the things that I like about having house sitters is knowing that we are coming home to a nice clean house and with Phil and Diane I wasn't disappointed. The other thing that I like is to come home to animals who are happy and relaxed because they have been well cared for and again with Phil and Diane I wasn't disappointed. Phil and Diane live up to the high praise of their previous endorsements and we are happy to be added to the list of people for whom they will happily house sit. ... MORE
CAROLYNE (Piggabeen NSW, Dec 2017 - 2 weeks 6 days)
Phil and Diane looked after my house, yard, pool and 2 dogs for almost 5 weeks. While I was away they were happy for work to commence on some on a shade sail installation over the pool and communicated with me while I was gone regarding the progress. I returned to a tidy house, yard and 2 happy dogs. I would highly recommend Phil and Diane to anyone looking for a house sitter.
STACEY (Townsville QLD, Jan 2020 - 5 weeks)
Phil and Diane did a wonderful job looking after my home and pets, even when our dog Ollie needed veterinary attention Phil and Diane cared for him wonderfully.
ERIN (Cannonvale QLD, Jan 2020)
From the moment we met I knew Phil and Dianne were experienced house sitters. The house and gardens looked great on our return and to be honest our dog is probably a bit sad that Phil and Dianne have left as she would have been getting used to all the extra attention/ exercise she had been getting while we were away. I would not hesitate in recommending Phil and Dianne to anyone considering them as house sitters.
BEN (Shoal Point (Mackay) QLD, Dec 2019 - 5 weeks)
Hey Ben, many thanks for your very complimentary review. Lou dog was a pleasure to care for, and taking her for walks was not a chore at all Regards Phil & Diane
Many thanks Phil & Diane for being available at such short notice. It was great to be able to get away finally for a holiday and not worry about the animals and things that needed to be done. All the best, Jeff & Denise
DENISE & JEFF (West Stowe QLD, Nov 2019 - 12 days)
Unfortunately, we had to cut the houesitting time short as we sold our house. Phil and Diane looked after our small dog Max and kept in touch. Max was very happy and content which showed us he was well looked after.
M & C (Bundaberg North QLD, Oct 2019)
Phil and Diane have house and pet sat for me twice over the last couple of months. They are an absolute delight to have as house carers and I found them respectful and easy to share with in the transitions in and out of my home. They are both gentle souls with a full and loving focus on best care for the pets. My dog and cat were really settled and happy under their watch. My home was also well cared for and I was able to be totally relaxed while away. I highly recommend Diane and Phil ... MORE
DIANA (Eumundi QLD, Jul 2019 - 4 days x 2)
No rating Phil and Diane took care of our house for almost 10 weeks. They are a lovely caring couple, very friendly and easy to communicate with. We had no worries in leaving our house in their care, and were able to enjoy our holiday completely relaxed knowing that everything was fine back home. We returned to find our house clean and tidy, and our plants thriving and our car tuned and running. We would definitely love to use their services again and would highly recommend them to others. Thanks Phil ... MORE
MARGARETA (Thornlands QLD, Jul 2018)
No rating Phil and Diane cared for our dog, 3 horses and our home for 1 week in December 2017. They did an outstanding job dealing with wet weather and mud in tending the horses twice daily and coping with 3 different tradesmen visits during the week. Our dog was also very well cared for and they took excellent care of our home. Phil and Diane were very responsive in communication up to and during the house sit and they were receptive and attentive to detailed instructions particularly to do with the ... MORE

No rating We had Phil and Diane look after our house for three months in mid-2017, while we were holidaying in Europe. They did a marvellous job and gave us piece of mind while we were so far away. They also our looked after our Golden Retriever and developed a special relationship with him. They sent us regular updates and photos of him on Messenger, which we greatly appreciated. We are looking forward to having Di and Phil mind our house again early next year. Thanks guys. Catch up soon.
No rating Phil and Diane have just completed their 4 week house sitting at our property, looking after our 2 cats and one older dog. The house and pets were looked after very well and we would have no hesitation recommending Phil and Diane to look after your house and pets.
BETTINA & STAN (Tweed Heads West NSW, Mar 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating We have just had the pleasure of having Phil and Diane sit our house for us during a 6 week trip overseas. I think our 13yr old cattle dog is having withdrawals from them both. Our home was left in the best care everything looked after just perfectly. Phil and Diane cared for our property along with our fish and chooks to a very high standard. We are very lucky to have found Phil and Diane and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wanting quality house sitters!!!! Russell ... MORE

No rating Di and Phil were wonderful looking after our house and 2 dogs for a month - Highly Recommended - A lovely couple
NEIL (Valery NSW, Mar 2016 - 4 weeks)
No rating Phil and Diane not only embraced the few days of notice of my need for house sitters, but also provided excellent care of my home, cat, dogs, fish and cattle. The dogs immediately befriended them, always a positive sign! I recommend Phil and Diane for your next house sit - if they are available! Getting home after a 9 hour drive to a beautiful home-cooked feast was a real treat too. Thank you both - we look forward to seeing you again either as visitors or sitters!
MARTHA (Armidale NSW, Feb 2016 - 3 days)
No rating We had Phil & Di for our first time house sitters, they were outstanding. The house was just how we left it, my much loved dog Bailey only had eyes for Di he even wanted to get in the car when they were saying good bye. I can't speak more highly of them & wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone. Can't wait to catch up & play that game of golf, & there is always a bed here if your passing through.
JANELLE (Kingscliff NSW, Feb 2016 - 2 weeks 5 days)
No rating Phil and Di looked after our house and two dogs, Baci and Brutus, in January 2016 for three weeks. We were absolutely delighted with their care for our precious pets and, on return, found the house and surrounds absolutely spotless. We received regular updates and photos of the dogs walking and swimming and could see that they were very happy and contented. Phil and Di are a delightful couple and we would not hesitate to recommend them to others!
LISA (Mosman NSW, Jan 2016)
No rating From our recent experience we can only but highly recommend Phil and Diane as reliable and dependable sitters for both your home and pets alike. We would definitely welcome them back in the future without reservation.
JUDY (Lilyfield NSW, Jan 2016 - 2 weeks)
No rating We were very pleased with Phil's & Diane's 'Aussie House Sitter' residence and would happily recommend them to anybody requiring a house sitter. May we say many thanks for leaving everything in such clean and tidy a presentation upon our return. Pam and Denis Knapman
PAM & DENIS (Drouin, VIC, May 2015 - 2 weeks 6 days)
No rating We found Diane and Phil great as Housesitters and cared for our home well. Our gardens were a picture to come home to and I would have them back again. They slotted into our small town and golf club as though they lived here permanently.
BILL AND SUSAN (Howlong NSW, Apr 2015 - 6 months)
No rating i could not thank Phil & Diane more for their wonderful stay to care for my 2 furry children, and look after our house! The place was left spotlessly; they were flexible with our circumstances to change dates due to our issues OS which was greatly appreciated; and also took the time to pamper our cats and send photos to us to advise us that they were OK with the adjustment of 'strangers' in the house - something which was great to receive given we were away 6 weeks. Our garden was looking ... MORE
MEGAN (Woodend, VIC, Mar 2015 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating We contacted Phil and Diane, through the AHS website because their profile included all the necessary elements we were looking for. Phil kindly rescheduled their plans to accommodate house sitting for us and looking after our beloved poodles. On meeting Phil and Diane, we were immediately confident in our selection of them. They are genuine, quality people who were kind and thoughtful in helping us. Our home was spotless on our return and our dogs gave us a great welcome, clearly having been ... MORE
TONY AND ALLISON (Hamilton, VIC, Jan 2015 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating Phil and Diane looked after my farm and Yo , the dog, for one month during 2014. My house was looked after as I would have done. I thankfully appreciate the care shown to my abode, possessions and four-legged companion. Diane and Phil are trustworthy, proficient house sitters. I can highly recommend them and I thank them again. Yo misses you. Yours faithfully, Michael.
