We feel very lucky to have had Barry and Di come and house / pet sit for us. They immediately put us at ease and we knew our house and animals would be in great hands. They took our dog on daily beach walks and other outings, they smothered the cat in affection and looked after our house like it was their own. Our cleaner commented that she had nothing to do while we were away as the house was spotless! We would love to have them back anytime.

Our pets were happy and healthy on our return and our house was well looked after. . Thank you Barry and Di. We would use Aussie house sitters again.
ANTOINETTE (Bli Bli QLD, Jun 2019 - 1 month 1 week)
It was our absolute pleasure to have Barry & Di house sit for us. They are a lovely couple and treated our dog, cats, plants, and home with respect and gave them all the care they needed. They spoilt our animals giving my dog two-hour beach walks every day and plenty of cuddles for our cats. They also gave us regular updates and we did not have to worry once while we were overseas as we knew our place was in safe hands. Barry & Di also left the house immaculate and we would not hesitate to have ... MORE

It was such a pleasure to meet Diane and Barry, I was just sorry I was unable to catch up with them while they were engaged in their next location. Our home was beautifully kept and our furry kids seemed to be well pleased with the love and attention given to them in our absence. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs house and pet sitters. I hope we can have them take care of our house and family again in our absence.

Barry & Diane were awesome housesitters - our dog Missy took to them as soon as they entered our home - they looked after Missy & our home as if it was their own - if your looking for the best to house sit you shouldn't go past Barry & Di. Awesome

No rating Diane and Barry are incredible House Sitters; we cannot recommend them highly enough! They took such good care of Paddy and Molly. We were also particularly impressed with the care and attention they gave to Molly as she has medical needs that require attention at specific times of the day. Further to this, they kept the townhouse immaculately clean. We were so thrilled with Diane and Barry that they're coming back again to look after the house and dogs.

Thanks for looking after our house and Moko Diane & Barry. It was reassuring to know we had left everything in good hands and would definitely have you back again. Thanks again.
ROHAN AND FAMILY (Mount Eliza VIC, Jun 2017 - 2 weeks 6 days)
Barry and Diane were just wonderful.They took care of our house and dogs with love and respect. We had builders at the house whilst we were away and they organized the animals accordingly and I felt totally confident leaving them. We have tried to rebook them already but they are in demand. BOOK NOW if u want them?
VIV (Wagga Wagga NSW, May 2017)
We have no hesitation in recommending Di & Barry as reliable house sitters who house and pet sat for us for 2 weeks during September 2016. We live in a small country town in the Riverina, regional NSW and have a house on 1 acre, most of which is garden (including vegetable patch and fruit orchard), and have a spoilt 6 year old cat, Tabbitha and 7 hens. Having a couple who were happy to stay in our home with an indoor cat, tend to a large garden and look after our hens was very important to ... MORE

No rating Barry and Diane looked after our house and dog while we were away. I immediately felt like they were my friends, they are so warm and kind. I came back to a very happy doggy and a very clean house. I just hope they are free next time we are away! Many thanks guys Jemima and Dan
JEMIMA (Mentone VIC, Aug 2016 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Di and Barry were fantastic house sitters for us, made the effort to come and meet a couple of weeks before we left for our holiday. Kept us updated with our dogs whilst we were away and it was great to see them very happy. House was immaculate on our return and it was all very easy. So thank you again and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a house sitter.
TINA (Brighton East VIC, Jul 2016 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Di and Barry did a terrific job looking after our menagerie of animals including horses, cattle, poultry and of course our dogs. They took the dogs to the beach and cafes and looked after them as if they were their own. They coped competently with unexpected farm challenges such as fierce storms and trees falling over fences. They kindly offered to transport us to the airport at the start and end of our trip, and reassured us while travelling with emailed news and pictures. We were very ... MORE

House Security

Safe house!

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